My Fit Dad Is My Greatest Idol

middle ageI consider myself to be one of the luckiest girls alive today, because I have such an awesome dad. My old man has been going to the gym and working out for pretty much his whole life. He loves the healthy lifestyle. Sometimes I tend to get a bit jealous of him because he has so much discipline. I can’t believe he is able to keep this up for all those years. My dad has been a teach his whole life. I’m not saying at which high school because I want to keep some privacy if that is okay with all my readers.

He was an English teacher and for decades he has passed on his knowledge of our language to teens. Naturally, some of his students did not like him much, but most loved him, in fact. Generally speaking, he was a very popular guy at this high school. He was really good at teaching, in my opinion. But not only was he a great teacher, he was extremely fit throughout his whole life. Just like that one guy from the Bulk Board.

Back in the days when he was still raising me, he used to talk about how he used to be chubby when he was a teenager. My dad and my mom had me when they were both in their thirties. Even back then, he was already in better shape than I have ever been in my entire life. I do not think I have ever seen him out of shape… apart from some of the early teen pictures that he has shown me on occasions.

He looks so much better now that he is slim… it’s like a change of day and night. I can totally understand why he made the decision to lose a lot of weight at that time. I think he was something like 75 pounds over weight and he really needed to shed a few of those pounds. From looking at my dad, you can’t see that he has ever been fat. He has a few stretch marks, but he doesn’t have any skin flabs or anything.

All my life, I have struggled with weight related problems myself as well. Having such a fit dad certainly helped. He has taught me much about how to get in shape and stay in shape. It’s too bad he ever allowed me to become the fat girl that I was in my teens. Sometimes I get angry at my dad because I feel he let me get fat. But every time I do, he politely points out that I have been shoving all those calories down my own mouth all by myself. When I was a kid, I was such a fussy eather. Every single time my mom and dad tried feeding me something healthy, I would whine like a little kid (and I was) that I would rather have candy.

One day, I asked my dad for good advice on how to get in shape. He explained me in details how I needed to exercise and what kind of diet I should adhere to. The days of pigging out on slim jims and ho hos are long behind me. And I have completely sworn off any kind of soda pop, because these kinds of drinks will kill you.

I am currently eating nothing but healthy stuff and I could not be happier because of it. A long time ago, I had developed an addiction to pizzas, cheese burgers, bacon burgers and whatnot. I can not believe why I ever liked that stuff. It is chock full of preservatives, chemical, refined sugars, all the wrong carbs, etc. I can not count how many pizzas I have had in the past. These days, I prefer to stick to salads. I am currently married to a guy that I love to death, but he is not eating healthy enough. He’s a bit of a lazy bones and he loves eating spicy junk foods.

But I am not going to sit back and let this all happen. He wants me to do all the cooking, so he’s going to have to eat whatever I shove in front of him. Not too long from now, I am going to encourage him to visit the gym. The same one my dad frequents. He needs to do some lifting and get in good shape, just like a real man. My husband has been a couch potatoe for far too long. I really love him. But eventually he’s going to get too fat and I will lose my interest in him. I’m going to be shoving lots of vegetables into him from now on.

He’s a really tough guy and you should not want to mess with him. He’s one of those guys that simply never quits. Because of his increasing age, he was getting a bit more irritable as the years were passing him by. He even suffered from mild depression for a while. He did some research into this problem, because he wanted to fix it. It wasn’t long before he found out that his lowered testosterone levels were to blame for it. Eventually, all men are going to have to deal with this same problem. Your male sex hormone levels are never going to go higher than they were when you were in your teens. They’re always going to go lower. My dad knew this, so he did some research on the web to learn more about these so called testosterone boosters (such as Testofuel) that had been hitting the market as of late. He ordered a few online to see if he could find out which ones were the best ones. And soon enough, his test levels started going up again. He was feeling better and doing better at the gym. I did not expect this stuff to actually work, but it sure did!

Not only can this stuff help you stay in good shape… it can also help you stay in a good mood, and last but not least… it can keep you good in the sack!
