I'm going to add some long range cycling 3 days a week to shed some BF (minus the spandex outfits). I HATE cardio and can only get into it with sports.

Diet blows chunks (with frequency and quality) and will be working on this. Less fat is my goal. Have not drank milk or alcohol in over a year and eat a lot less cheese. Added veggie juicing, focusing on protein 175 grams. Get Carbs under 150 and Fat under 100.

Major areas of work needed...everything, but a focus on back and biceps.
