Conan did not make it . . .

. . . to the SuperHero Challenge 2013.
Back in November of 2012, a number of us 50+ Males started challenging one another to achieve physiques to match the Superhero of our choice by Hallowe'en 2013 and to dress accordingly to honour the occasion. I thought I could look like Conan--my avatar as a Teacher-Librarian lo these many years ago having been "Conan the Librarian".
Easy-peasy, I thought back last November. Lose 5 or 6 pounds and work like blazes with weights and core training, and be a shoo-in by Hallowe'en.
HA! Not only did I *not* lose the 5 or 6 pounds, I've gained an additional 8 or 10--leaving me with about 15 pounds to lose to be back at my desired weight.
Physique? What's a physique? It's a beer-barrel on stilts, right???? Well, at least that's what mine seems like just now. Witness the new profile pic.
And so, b0000000! to me as of Hallowe'en. Maybe I can be a skinny Santa by Christmas : )
