New diet starts tomorrow, I'm oddly enthusiastic about it, haha. Just ordered everything I need. Got everything on the list, plus kitchen scales, and new training plan at the gym too. Actually looks less than I'm already doing, lol, but my diet ... Read more

Til moving day. Got most of the packing and work done. Just want it over with now. I'm really going to have to focus on all of this, rather than thinking too much about getting to the gym, and I will also need to eat whatever is easy. ... Read more

Which makes it a GOOD day. I was planning on doing lower body at the gym, and got there just before ten o'clock, which is when bodycombat class starts. I love that class, but haven't dared go for a few weeks because of my injured shoulder, an... Read more

Stuff it, I'm going to actually attempt to do it. In touch with an experienced figure event competitor, who is now retired, but helps to advise, prepare and give diet/training programmes to first timers. Yes, I know about training, yes I know ab... Read more
Miles this week

I've cycled 68 miles this week. Would have preferred an even 70, lol, but still a decent amount. That will go up as the better weather is starting to show its face more and more. I love my bike. Wouldn't give it up for anything at all.... Read more

I'm on a real food mania right now, lol. Nothing wrong with that. I'm not eating "bad" things, just really slamming down those calories. I usually don't eat far into my exercise calories, but yeah, these past couple of days.....NOM NOM! Must b... Read more

20 miles on the bike in the sunshine. I got to my usual 15 when I got home, but didn't want to waste the good weather, so set off again and just stayed nearby, going around my local area til I got that extra five. Felt good! I did a good 90 mi... Read more
Physio yesterday

I like this one. She said I can do any move at the gym, as long as it's comfortable and I can keep my shoulders back. That's my issue, she says. Bad posture. I've noticed that myself, how my shoulders are too far forwards. She was loo... Read more

Body fat measurements

Well, I have cheap callipers, but they don't show much of an accurate scale. It jumps from a two percent difference, with nothing in between. I need something that will show smaller changes. Just ordered a digital one, so hopefully that will giv... Read more

Been listening to Arnie’s now famous motivational speech about his six rules to success, and this one hit home with me.
Along this journey, I’ve had people tell me not to lose too much weight, that I’m getting too much exercise, that I’m “lookin... Read more
