Default I am a fat piece of shit.

Me circa 2005 - 179cm, 77kg

Me today - 179cm (No surprises there...), 109kg


Relationships, alcohol and junk food have turned me into a fat, lazy bastard with precious little to offer society. And so I've had enough of flirting with obesity. Over the next 3 months or so I plan on enduring a different kind of physical abuse. Eventually I plan to spar with something other than alcoholism, but my short term goal is rapid weight loss. My training routines will primarily involve extended cardio before breakfast, I'll also be updating my daily food diary in here. Any input at all will be appreciated, whether it's helpful advice or you wanna ridicule me for being a fat, weak willed **** (The latter will probably help just as much.). I'll be making my first entry tomorrow following my early workout. Peace out, and thanks for your time.


EDIT: I'm altering my goal weight to a more civilized 85kgs. So far so good!

Many thanks, gents! Unfortunately society is filled with too many ****ing enablers so I'm coming here for the tough love I need to keep in check. Watch out, mother****ers. I'm determined!

Woke up a 10am (Hardly early) and started my day with 100mg of caffeine, then off to the gym... Set myself what I will consider to be my absolute bare minimum over the next few weeks (Will increase it as my fitness improves) and concentrated on completing that for now.

* 5 x 3 minute rounds of speed rope
I'm always honest with the rope. I strive to jump at a rate brisk enough keep me constantly challenged. I also vary my cadence well between jumping, shuffling, side to sides, double unders, you name it.

* 5 x 3 minute rounds of the heavy bag
****ing disgusted with myself. My punches have lost the kinetic SNAP they had when I was in shape. It's like I'm trying to crack a whip with a pillow of lard tied to the middle and it's absorbing half the force. I feel like a drunk bear clumsily trying to maul a ****ing tree.

* 30 mins on treadmill
Started at a pace of 10kph on a 1.5 incline. I've allowed myself 2 breaks of 2:30 during the run. These are taken at half pace for a total of 25 minutes run, 5 mins walk. This is far from what any halfway fit person would consider a challenging run but I know what it is to dig... Unfortunately my shovel just isn't big enough yet.

I left maximum 5 mins rest between activities so I've basically packed this workout into just under 90 mins. ****ing hell it was brutal. I'll be concentrating on improving the quality of my heavy bag workout before I start trying to add crazy shit in.

Hooked into a smoothie when I got home, 250ml low fat milk, a handful of frozen berries and a scoop of low-carb protein. Never tried that shit before. My house mate recommended it.

Weight before workout - 109.2 kgs
Weight after workout - 108.6 kgs

Yeah I know it's mostly gonna be fluids and is likely to fluctuate. This is just how I like to check weight. I'll be Updating my food shit soon.

Thanks, man. The truth is I didn't stack on that 32 kilos (Or 70 lbs for imperial folk) because I hate to exercise... Quite the opposite! My problem has always been that I'm a shitty eater, and while I've had the occasional 'fitness kick' over the years I've never really had positive results because I pile in on either shitty food, tremendous amounts of reasonable food (Sushi, etc) or tremendous amounts of shitty food.

This time I'm having a genuine crack at frequent, goal oriented exercise coupled with an aggressive diet. As soon as I can find a good calorie counting website (And if I can be arsed) I'll try and keep a food log here, too...

Weight before workout - 109kgs


* Speed rope - 5 x 3 minute rounds

* Treadmill - 30 mins
Pace 10km/h inlcine 1.5, 2 half paced breaks of 2:30. Tore through the run today. Felt good!

* Heavybag - 5 x 3 minute rounds
Still completely shit although I did concentrate a little more on technique today, which felt good. This saw my volume decrease, however.

* Speed bag - 5 minutes cool down
Done at a moderate pace. First time I've touched a speed bag in about 2 years and glad to see my sense of rhythm is still there.

Weight after workout - 108.6kgs

Hows the intensity in those rounds? Looking at that I'd say you were in pretty good shape to be honest.

Not the best. I'll try to work out a rough punch count today, about to get in there now... I feel like my heart & lungs are doin' okay, I used to do this workout with a core routine and a weights session or anaerobic calisthenic circut on top depending on the day. And the run was done at 11.5km/h at an inlcline of 3.0. So I got some work to do, and I just gotta stop eatin' like a stupid dildo...

Weight before workout - 108.9kgs

Finished with double unders to failure. Turned otu to be 20 seconds.

Punch count for rd. 1, 133

Moderate pace

* Treadmill - 30 mins

That's kinda annoying. Expect to see a slight loss by next week.

Weight before workout - 108.2kgs

* Speed rope - 4 x 3 minute rounds
Got cut short because the gym was so friggin' busy today...

* Treadmill - 30 minutes
Pace 10km/h, incline 1.5, 2 half paced breaks of 2:30. Finished it pretty comfortably. After a fortnight I'll knock it up a notch.

* Heavy bag - 5 x 3 minute rounds.
Grueling. Caught myself getting sloppy several times through the process. Shitty bag session. Also have a pinch in my bicep from throwing the straight left.

* Speed bag - 5 mins cooldown.
Pretty happy with my speed bag work. Mostly done at a moderate pace, but sped it up a few times. Startin to regain my relaxed cadence, transitions are getting better.

Weight after workout - 108.1kgs

My eating so far today has been reasonable. Frozen berry shake for breakfast with 2% milk and a scoop of protein. Ate a frozen meal for lunch, and hammered a subway sandwich probably a little too early to count as dinner. One of those healthy ones, but I got cheese and fatty sauce. I did have to do a bastard cunt of a three hour walk today, so I think that can afford me a few extra calories.

Have to recommend those sprint rounds on the heavy bag. I used to have to do them for boxing. If done properly they are great calorie burner and youll definitely see great increases in stamina.

Sprint rounds. Constant, high volume, right? How do you work them around your technique sessions? I used to train with a guy who made us do 30 seconds of volume at the end of every round. While it's benifit cannot be questioned I know I'm not ready for that yet. It will destroy the rest of my workout.
