Normally, Daddycatcher would find that to be incredibly obnoxious! But you, sir, should always work out shirtless!  Not only is it inspiring, it’s also pretty hot!

Back at the Gym

Daddycatcher has been hitting the gym hard since he weighed himself in late July.  He found out that he was 167 pounds.  Now that isn’t much for some people.  But for a 5’6″ gay man…well, let’s just say it wasn’t made of muscle.

However, thanks to constant training and a healthy enough diet (there was a 4 slice pizza slip up!) Daddycatcher is at a respectable 158 pounds.  A little leaner and dare we say a little less fat, a little more muscle!!!

Daddycatcher has been going hardcore on the treadmill and elliptical in the effort to keep the weight off.

He is starting the see some results.  So when Daddycatcher is going for that 4th and 5th mile, his mind goes to this recent picture of Eric Dane (Daddycatcher’s #8) probably heading back from the gym himself.

Gym Inspiration: Hot Reality TV Guys

Daddycatcher has been working steadily on keeping the weight off.  While not slim like in his college years (who really is nowadays!?!), Daddycatcher has been around 155lbs for a good month now.

Now that the stress of finding an apartment is over, Daddycatcher’s focus is back on getting “summer shirtless” ready!!!

Definitely reading this article featuring three of Daddycatcher’s favorite reality hotties – Dave Salmoni, Rami Kashoú, and David Bromstad – has kept him motivated!

Daddycatcher’s First Yoga Class

Posted in Work It Out on January 22, 2010 by Daddycatcher

Continuing with the new trend of making changes to his life, Daddycatcher tried yoga for the first time tonight.  It was alternately horrific and exhilarating.

Daddycatcher, the Big Man, and Miss Destiny attended Yoga to the People, which is a suggested donation based yoga class.  It was packed!  We attended the Power Vinyasa Flow Class.  The best thing about the class was that it was full of beginners and experienced people.  The experienced folk were going through the flow with the Big Man and Daddycatcher before the tough-as-nails instructor started the class.

She was tough but incredibly helpful at the same time.  And Daddycatcher almost came close to quitting.  He got to a point where he really thought he was going to vomit.  But he pushed through.  2010 is supposed to be a year of change and new experiences.  He has been hitting the gym hard and yoga was the next step.

After an hour of downward facing dog, warrior pose, and chair pose, Daddycatcher, the Big Man, and Miss Destiny were shaking with exhaustion.  But in the end, getting through it was an amazing feeling.  There was no judgement in the class.  If you were not up to any of the particular exercises, you could return to child pose and join in when you were ready again.

Daddycatcher would like to work on his breathing more.  He realized that things seemed harder because he wasn’t breathing correctly.  If he focuses on the breath leaving and entering his body, he will find a stronger core and a greater capacity for intense concentration.

Looks like there will be another class for Daddycatcher next week!
