Change from Riding...Wednesdays I go to a fitness class as part of the program I am in. The official name is Active Measures.

This is a bit like a mix of phys ed from school e.g. burpees and some other exercises thrown in.

Most of the attendees make me look very slim so I like going. My attitude is first it is a change from cycling in case my body gets too used to it, and go like hell as I am in a 'safer' environment that is I have two semi qualified medical employees taking the session so when my body starts to complain I have conversations with myself about being a soooky la la or wanting to wear a tutu etc.

Last night was really hard. It was 1 minute of exercise a, then b, c etc continuous with no breaks for 45 minutes.

This program is 8 weeks, then we have 8 weeks of more intense work, then 8 weeks of one on one personal training with an exercise physiologist (I think that's how you say it).

As I said makes a change from riding for me. I ride generally Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. I try and make all my work appointments for Wednesday so I only need the car one day a week. Most weeks that works. Today I have a site meeting at Fremantle so cant avoid driving today...probably just as well as I am still a bit sore from last night...I did go very hard.

Bit of slackish week this week after hitting out at the state masters track and rain causing some mods to the usual exercise routine.

Yes, thats kind of why when I qualified for the program and it is covered by Medicare being a fatty, I thought I would take it on.

The course has changed. Originally you had electives and swimming was one of the electives. As this is my other 'sport' besides cycling as I used to be quite quick when I was a younger fella and still swim about an hour or so at least once or twice a week, I was looking forward to this. Now they have altered it to PT only I am not as keen, but going to keep going until I see the next layer in a few weeks.

Happy to join in again. It motivated me a bit last year to finally crack 6,000km and got my weight under (briefly) 100kgs for the first time in many years. I did an 800km charity ride in Sept at 102-103 kg and then put my bike in storage while I went away travelling. Just got back after months of having fun and eating too much and saw 109.7kgs on the scales! :oops:

So I'm back into semi-regular cycling and have started lunch time jogs. My wife and I are alternating mornings so my goal is to ride or jog 3-4 days a week and I've cut out the chocolates and diet coke.

188cm
40 y.o. in April
109.7kgs starting weight for 2014.
Goal is 99kgs in the short term and ultimately 89kgs.

Good luck everyone.

Right, so to be honest, my nutrition has been a bit showtime, so in the lead up to Busso I declare (since it's 9 weeks away), that I'm giving up chocolate (not cocao) just chocolate and desert (I can have it once a week, not heaps a week).

With those little changes I should be okay for a 75kg weigh in the week before race day.

Belt came in another notch this morning...I am surprised as I didn't ride to work yesterday as I needed to go to site for a meeting. So must have been the additional effort on Fatness for Fitties Wednesday.

Was in a store last night and got chatting to the young bloke at the counter. To look at him he is about the samone size up on me and a little taller. We got talking about cycling as his dad cycles and he told me he had lost 40 kgs himself and was now down to 130 kg. I felt really heavy next to him...interesting maybe this is muscle versus fat in real life as although I am a larger person I am not totally unfit.

Rode into town today to go to court so bit different. Might get near a scale at the weekend and see if it has made any difference.

Yes you're right but I thought my 7.5hr ride on Sunday might have burnt a few more grams off

yep... and I've had my one milk coffee that I allow myself, so there is no fun left in my day :(

Well that's a lie, there's all this lamb at home waiting to be eaten when I get home... lamb cooked in the oven for 4 hours!

I thought on high protein diet you are supposed to eat more snacks etc.

I don't really classify the way I eat as a diet, I just eat what I want to eat, you're welcome to label it if you require but it's really rather simple, I eat more natural food more often, I limit my access to processed foods and anything in a box or bag. I limit refined white sugars and I partake in the eating of grains very rarely that my tummy bloats and expands when I do, my body doesn't crave it or miss it, so therefor it cant be a diet. When one goes on a diet they exclude things from their life and say, "no, I can't have that."

I say, sure, I can have ice cream, but I probably can't have it every day. I have rice on a really big training day when I train morning and night, but not on the days where I only train once. If someone brings cake to work I'll have a piece or I might go out for cake and coffee on the weekend, I eat pancakes (buckwheat ones - seed not grain) covered with peaches and cream! But I don't eat pasta, I don't eat rice cakes or stuff with MSG on it, I eat very nutrient rich food and we rarely buy things in the iles of the supermarket.

There's no need to snack when you're not hungry, if you're hungry then you may have a snack but remember to ask yourself are you hungry or just bored?

And remember the difference between me and a high protein diet is that I eat fat, because it's yummy and it has flavour!

Removing that muffin and having a lunch that was lower in carbs bought my weight down which was great, except I have my period and I want to eat chocolate :(

I dont have a period...but will still eat chocolate given a chance...

Had official weigh in at Fatness for Fitties last night...I came in at a very light 132.6 kg and have dropped 6 cm around my middle down to a very slimming 123 cm. Nearly the size of my chest now.

This is similar to last time I lost weight. I loose very little at the beginning, almost to the point of wondering if I am loosing any at all then I reach a tipping point and it falls away really quickly.

Nicely done, I remember when my hips used to measure in at 125cm, now down to 97cm, so you're doing really well!

So you see, with the muffin today, I allowed myself two muffins becuase I'm running 21ishkm today, 10 in the morning and 10 in the evening; both gone.

Periods aren't cool, consider yourself lucky!

I have a rule for work - if I don't bring it with me, I'm not eating it. I move around a lot in my consultant role so don't really "belong" at the places I end up so don't get a regular cake culture thing happening. Luckily as I'd struggle to say no every time, despite trying to be sugar and wheat free for the most part.

I've been dangling off the wagon this week. Not completely fallen off, but I'm battling to keep on. I'll manage though and have stayed the same weight this week so far which shows I've not fallen off completely and I can still swing my legs back on :)
