    Default Started again :-)

    Right basically I stopped last time due to a bunch of mates (separate incident and not related to the other thread) ditched me for a trip we had been planning for years..got pissed off..met a bird..training stopped.

    I looked good but i got to comfortable around her for my own good so thought fuck this..ditched her and now i am planning to start this again but keep on going whilst working on a hottie I'm getting to know

    Its not te best time of year to be starting this with xmas/new years but the only times i'll be drinking will be this thursday (work xmas do), xmas day and new years eve. (I dont eat/drink much in between..i only seem to eat shit when I'm at work..every friday = pizza day)

    Things have changed alot since I stopped..

    Current Weight: 14st 00lbs (I was at 12st 10lbs when I stopped)

    Sunday

    Nothing to eat all day..3 cups of tea

    3pm: chicken and sweetcorn sandwich + snickers+ orange juice

    4pm to 6:45pm 5-a-side football (This is usually 80% running and the rest being goal..usually end up drinking 2litres of water)

    8pm dinner - Lentils + Chappatis

    Monday

    9am egg + toast sandwich

    11.30am apple + robinsons blackcurrent squash

    1pm - Lunch - hotdogs (mate brought them in)

    4.30pm apple + robinsons blackcurrent squash

    7.30pm- Dinner - Chappatis + Mince

    10pm - 3x 20 situps 3x 15 pressups 3x10kg single arm dumbell lift and 3x20 some bicep/tricep exercise(I'll have to find a pic)

    10:35pm pint of water + 25g of whey powder(need to start shitting again)

    I know my eating today was shit but I was planning to start next week..but thats me longing it out..the sooner I start the better. The only issue I got at the moment are my ankles

    Ive been playing footie every sunday but for the last 2 weeks my ankles have been extremely sore. Yesterday i was just about able to run..as soon as i stop playing and i take my boots off, my ankles just hurt.,I can just about walk..so i cant start my jogging till they heal:<..they dont look swollen,they look boney as usual..

    Also I have a blocked Sinus..it doesnt sound like much but I can only breathe in and out on the left side of my nose(Been like this since birth). My right side is useless..can anyone suggest anything to help clear this up? My GP keeps giving me Nasel sprays..which are pointless:@

    I plan to be up at 7.30am to repeat my routine but I'll be having a plain egg white omlette at 9am and then a bowel of porridge at 10:30am . Also how much water should I be drinking daily?

    I know Ive asked alot of questions but last time there was such a huge differance in before/after(shud have got pics)..I want to go back there and make it stick.

    The only thing I wont be doing is waxing my chest lol. My mate (other thread) started training the same time as I did but he went a bit extreme and started using steriods and the results he got in a month were..he was HUGE with a spotty chest and a ego..now hes a cunt.

    Anyway roll on the next 8 weeks of fun

    Yeah good on you for getting back in training.

    I was doing well until 2 weeks ago when I slipped into Xmas-mode and have since been eating anything and everything in sight, boozing lots and generally enjoying myself. Still training at least 3 times a week but no cardio.

    Will be back on it hard as of Jan 5th (back to work) so will do a 6 week diet down and get some pics up.

    Good luck Sanj

    Yeah no problem with taking whey protein in the morning mate. You're taking the whey to keep your boy's protein levels high so that it doesn't burn off the muscle. Have a qucik read of this article on the myths of taking too much protein and high protein diets.

    ^^ Since I stopped doing all this my ankles have healed completley lol. I'm do 3 hour footie sessions on a sunday now easily

    Anyway -

    25/11/09

    Weight 13.4
    Joining the GYM and getting parking took alot longer then I expected (20 more minutes then I was expecting) My mornings are tight so i only have an hour free. I'll be doing an am and pm session.

    I'm doing strictly cardio for the first 2 weeks as a detox thing to loose the extra bit on my gut.

    Due to the unexptected delays my am session was very brief lol

    7.40am - 8.20am

    20 min Treadmill
    20 min Cycle Machine

    On the treadmill my heart rate was 130 bpm, so for the last 5 minutes I raised the speed and it went upto and stayed between 150-160. I'm not used to running on a treadmill..

    It's a shit start but I am going back tonight and my plan is -

    1000m on the Rowing Machine x2
    20min cycle
    20min treadmill
    Sign up for swimming lessons.

    Diet

    Breakfast @ 9.15am: Porridge

    Lunch @ 12pm: chicken + rice

    Snack @ 3pm: apple and grapes

    Dinner @ 6.30om: Grilled Salmon Fillet + veg

    If you guys have any suggestions on how I could improve then please do.

    Gym @ 8pm for evening workout.

    Ended up swapping the evening session around.

    I went gym at 6.15pm -

    Jumped on the cycle machine, thought i'd be a hero and try 25 min, i managed 20 and was died

    Jumped on the cross-trainer for 10 minutes which KILLED me.

    Chilled for 2 minutes and then went on the treadmill for 15 min

    After all this the rowing machine was finally free..i got on it and managed 500m in just under 2 min (I'll be doing that again 1st thing tomorrow)
    Afterwards I did hot tub/sauna/shower.

    Got home..my fridge is on the blink so the salmon fillets i bought today were lightly smelling funny, I cut out the smelly/dark bits from both fillets..added a chicken thigh and some veg and munched.

    I feel awesome at the moment lol.

    That's alright, but not great. Have a read up on the diet/nutrition stickies at the top of the Gym.

    • You are going 15 hours without any food source. Something between 1830 meal and bed would be good. Nothing carb heavy or anything. Maybe some chicken or tuna, and veg, or just cook a bit extra and save it.
    • Is there any way you can get some food into yourself between 0820 and 0915? Preferably with a protein source. Again nothing big.

    If you keep eating small meals it will keep your metabolism up and stop your body entering a catabolic state. Are you having any cheat meals?

    Some good advice there, when i was serious about the gym (unfortunately i've fallen out of the loop) i swore by a high carb whey shake at 7.15 followed by similar porridge and then fruit at about 8.00. Also pre bedtime snack was a tub of low fat cottage cheese and a pack of oat cakes for me.

    I had a rather large diet however, took bulking very seriously and enjoyed it immensely, i was having a shake, breakfast, pre lunch, lunch, snack, workout, shake, main meal, mini meal, pre-bedtime snack.

    Go have a look on [Only registered and activated users can see links. ], was my bible.

    Best of luck mate!

    A cheat meal is whatever you want it to be, once a week or fortnight just to break up the regularity and dare I say it, Blandness of healthy food. One of those things a lot of people use to keep themselves sane and motivation up.

    6:40am - 20 min treadmill

    7:05 - 15 min cycle

    I drove straight to work because it would be easier for me to get changed etc. On the way to work I remembered since I been promoted, Ive kept no food in the office, so I ended up going to Morrisons.

    8:30am Porridge + 2 cumberland sausages

    11am apples + grapes

    No idea for the rest of the day yet..
