So this is something you're going to need to do nearly every day for the rest of your life. It is my experience that the only people that last in bodybuilding are people who don't just enjoy the destination but enjoy the journey as well.
I think that ultimately [women] have to raise the white flag, and just accept us for the emotional retards that we are, don't you think? -Hank Moody

i hear that, the workout was tuesday, i'm still sore! (granted i could run or do anything i need to now) stairs are still a little bit of a pain... but i'm not limping up the stairs anymore, and was actually able to crawl on the ground, under my truck today!
The worst is getting out of your car or going down the stairs.
I would definately try doing intervals. My situation sounds just like yours. I was all muscle except an inch or two of fat around the belly. I start my workouts with 30 minutes of intervals on the treadmill. One minute of running, one minute of brisk walking. You'll find that even 10 minutes of intervals will likely cause you to sweat more than a 30 minute jog. After 3 months I've cut 20 pounds of fat.
The bonus for intervals is that doing they burn fat faster (than jogging), they're less intimidating (because you get a rest every minute), and they have benefits more useful for a policing type career (developing your anaerobic cardio...meaning explosive, high intensity, non-endurance cardio... which is important for law enforcement, because most of our fitness gets tested in 30 seconds or less, in the form of a short foot chase or resisting suspect).

Keep it simple ------ (KISS formula) a person has to stick with it, be 100% dedicated. It's a win/win deal. Listen to your body, if it aches, rest that area, if you're hungry,eat, but eat the right food(s).
If a person wants to make it work, it's totally up to them! I work out with some guys who are always talking about what they're going to do, i.e, quit drinking (they still drink too much), only order out for food once a week (may eat right once a week). Great guys, but they're on a different page. Their slacking brings MY routine to a higher level. Must be that +/- thing

Apparently that's all it took for Arnold and Franco...
