Well done on making the decision to quit the fags Tommy, just think of all the lovely big golden pennies you'll be saving.  As for the beer, we only drink on Friday & Saturday (unless we're on holiday), the other nights we just tell ourselves its a school night and we're up at stupid o'clock in the morning.

If you buy any copy of Mens Health/Fitness they have an at-home exercise routine in them... and even if they do feature a fancy shmancy bit of machinery you can usually work out a way of doing the same exercise with free weights.  Mr CS has ripped out a couple of kettlebell workouts from previous mags which I could photocopy & send to you if you wanted, once you've had a play with Shimms of course.

Caz, give back the purple crayon, I need it for the sky in my piccie

*hands over soggy crayon*  Sorry... It was just sat there looking at me...

Ooooh and as for what you had to eat the other day Tommy... IS THAT IT???   How on earth do you manage to train on so little food???  I have porridge with honey for breakfast (made with skimmed milk), fruit mid-morning, a fist sized jacket spud with tuna/beans/leftover chili & a low fat yogurt for lunch, a banana mid-afternoon and then something substantial but healthy for tea... bolognese/stir fry/casserole/shepherds pie etc.  And that's when I'm dieting...

I agree *wipes gob off crayon* that's not much.

Be careful you dont send your body into starvation mode, you will then hold on to every bit of fat you eat.

It's a fine balance and it will take a while to figure your intake but you will get there.

Thats is the problem Caz I don't eat much, never have been a big eater, and I do try to stick with healthy stuff. I think its the beer and wine which is the problem. Plus sitting a desk all day for to many years.

I have only been running for 2.5 years and I lost quite a lot initially but seem to have got stuck.

Hey ho ....change of life style is required I think.

The whole appetite thing could be down to the beer/wine... You're getting more than enough calories from them.  My ex & his sister (it was a family thing) were both big drinkers (alcoholics the pair of them), and neither of them ate very much... but when he gave up the booze (he managed to stay sober for 5 years) he found that he wanted to eat more. So you might find that your appetite returns with a vengeance...

Ok the 80 miles turned into 56 miles as it got windier and windier with heavy rain showers.

But it felt like 80

Well bit of a rash decision to say I'm not going to drink for a month.

When I got home last night my wife had a G&T waiting for me..I couldn't refuse.

Anyhoo no beer for a few days and healthy eating plenty of running and cycling and I feel loads better.

Not sure if I have lost any weight yet but just feel healthier than normal.

oh and I have cut down on the weed too 

22/06/2010 at 10:32

Dont worry about the weight at the mo.  One thing at a time.  Smoking first and getting healthier.

Glad you are feeling better.

G n T - a good choice - all that hydrating tonic.

I haven't had a drink for ages due mainly to training and the fact that I cycle everywhere and can't really wobble around the city half-cut on my bike.  So there's another option for you - cycle to all your social things and you won't be tempted to drink so much or maybe not at all.

No thats not such a good idea, unless I by a cheap second hand bike, I'm not going to be leaving my shiny new expensive bike anywhere.  Plus I have bit of a history of falling of bike when dru..socalising

If I go out to a pub or elsewhere, I usually ask staff if they have a safe place I can lock my bike up, otherwise I use 2 locks.  I don't have an expensive bike but I wouldn't like to lose it as it's my only mode of transport and the thing I train on.

You won't be drunk, because you're cycling home, remember?
