Never that. Just an aggressive calorie budget! If I can manage to get below 103kgs by Saturday I'll be eating about 1.5kgs of Spaghetti Bolognese over the course of the day... As a reward!

Week 2
6/11/2009

Weight before workout - 104.4kgs

* Speed rope - 5 x 3 minute rounds
Another good rope session. Sprints and body cross double-unders in every round.

* Heavy bag - 12 x 3 minute rounds
In your ****ing face, universe! Given that I missed my heavy bag workout yesterday I wanted to try to make it up today, or maybe just a bit of it if I became too gassed. But I felt great! The pain in my joints had subsided and I really mauled the ****ing hell out of that thing! Working of my 1,1,2 combination, working high and low with it, power combo's. I did 5 rounds, felt alright, then immediately decided to go the full ten. Then when I'd done the ten I decided to suck it up and punch through a couple of championship rounds (Wanky, I know, but it got me to the finish)! And in those last two rounds I went totally for broke. Extremely happy with my bag workout today!

* Speed bag - 10 minutes cool down
Doubled my workout on this for the same reason, but there's only so excited one can be over an unusually good speed bag session.

* Treadmill - 30 minutes
Pace 10.5 km/h, inlcline 1.5, 2 half paced breaks of 2:30 for 25 minutes run, 5 minutes active rest. After the effort I put in today this was pretty tough. Still, I got through it.

Weight after workout - 104.2kgs

I drank a LOT of water today. I expect that after my workout, healthy eating and an 8 hour bar shift tonight I'll be well below 103kgs by tomorrow. I'm well on course for my reward meal.

Just a note... I actually can't understand why I had so ****ing much energy today. It's my fourth workout day in a row and I worked last night 'til 1am, getting only 6 hours of sleep. The only thing I can think of is that I drank a double espresso at approximately 10pm last night. I used to take 200mgs of caffeine before exercise but stopped on a doctors advice and have since laid of stimulants nearly altogether. My sensitivity may have risen but the coffee I drank only had 160mgs of caffeine... Anyone (Who can be arsed reading this long-winded drivel) know how long that stuff is likely to stay in your system?

Keep up the good work man!

I lost 45lbs 2 years ago. Went from 225lbs to 180lbs.

I was able to maintain that weight for 2 years but I've recently started to get lazy.

I've packed about 10 lbs in the last 3 months. I need to get back in the gym! It's hard tho. I hurt my knee last winter and I can't run anymore without having excruciating in my left knee afterword.

Running was my favorite workout.

Thanks mate! I know what you mean about getting lazy, that's pretty much what landed me in this predicament...

How's your swimming? If I wasn't so shit in the water I'd definitely give it a place in my routine. Apparently it's great for your aerobic and anaerobic energy systems. I don't know if that's any better for your knee but I'm familiar with the toll running can take on your joints.

Week 2
7/11/2009

Weight before workout - 103kgs
When I said yesterday that I expected to be below 103kgs by today I meant 104 (As my weight was only slightly above that). So to clock in bang on 103 before my workout was an awesome feeling.

* Speed rope - 5 x 3 minute rounds
My fitness has definitely increased over these two weeks. Having worked out 4 days in a row prior to today my limbs were tired and heavy, I expected to feel extremely sluggish and lethargic. But after about 1 minute on the rope my legs were pumping and shuffling well. My body is able to kick right into gear when required. Good rope session.

* Heavy bag - 5 x 3 minute rounds
The joint soreness was back with a vengeance. I started quite slowly and maintained a relatively relaxed pace throughout today's bag session, with sporadic power combo bursts. My volume was satisfactory but I wasn't all too creative with my jabs. Now's no time to develop shitty habits.

* Speed bag - 5 minutes cool down
I didn't die of a heart attack so all went well, I guess...

* Treadmill - 30 minutes
Pace 10.5km/h, incline 1.5, 2 half paced breaks of 5km/h for 25 minutes run, 5 minutes active rest.

Weight after workout - 102.9kgs
New mother****ing number! Eking ever closer to glorious double-digitsville!

WEEK 2 SUMMARY
2/11/2009 - 8/11/2009

Weight at beginning of week 1 - 106.9kgs (235.7lbs)
Workouts - 5
Weight at end of week 1 - 102.9kgs (226.9lbs)
Gross weight loss for week 2- 4kgs (8.8lbs)
Overall weight loss - 6.3kgs (13.9lbs)

The calendar reckons there's one day left in the week, but so help me god I'm resting tomorrow. In other good news I've lost 1 stone (6.35kgs, close e-****ing-nough I say!), which entitles me to a reward meal! Now I can't decide between getting this;

[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]+[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]+ [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

Or making a massive pot of
[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

I gotta lose another stone before I get another one so I can't **** it up!

Week 3
9/11/2009

Ah, a new week. My goal of double digits by weeks end may well be hampered by my mate's wedding which falls on Friday. I'll just have to be extra well-behaved through the week and maybe I can make it.

Decided to go with the bolognese for my reward meal, and by cripes it was like hardcore taste bud pornography. I made about 1.5kgs of the stuff and ate it all in one sitting, no shit. 1 bowl after another 'til all I could do was lay flat on my back and watch Rocky II. Glorious! Anyways, onto the exercise.

Weight before workout - 103.4kgs

* Speed rope - 5 x 3 minute rounds
Typically high-quality rope workout today. Rhythm is improving greatly.

* Heavy bag - 5 x 3 minute rounds (Boxing)
An oddly sluggish hand session considering the rest day. For some crazy reason it was difficult to simply hold a proper guard today. Fatigue was a real issue...

* Heavy bag - 2 x 3 minute rounds (Kickboxing)
Presto! Found my wee dose of variety for now. Slipped into an orthodox stance and threw a few punch/kick combinations and had a wicked stitch within minutes. **** me sideways, I understand why kickboxing and MMA fights are scheduled for fewer rounds now.

* Speed bag - 5 minutes cool down
What does this thing actually do?

* Treadmill - 30 minutes
Pace 10.5km/h, incline 1.5, 1 half paced break of 5km/h, final minute 12km/h at an incline of 8.0. Total 27:30 run 2:30 active rest.

Weight after workout - 103.1kgs
Although it was an altogether sluggish, tired workout today I managed to get through it and add a few extra challenges. After some walking and healthy eating today I expect to be well below 103 after tomorrows session.

6 rounds of all out 20 second heavy-bag sprint punches (basic 1-2s)
** rest 90 seconds after each round

you can choose to increase a round or decrease the rest period by 5 seconds for progression when you want (but this is more than enough for a start). Don't increase the 20 seconds though, because you will no longer perform at your "best" after that time span. This is a high intensity interval training exercise that's an addition to your current workout. You will hate me if you try it.

How long do you rest in between each 20 second sprint... 90 seconds ?

Week 3
10/11/2009
I kind of messed up on my diet last night, got some lean chicken skewers but also a pretty big serve of mash because I was hangin' for a substantial meal. Not the worst of slip-ups, but got an unpleasant surprise from the scale this morning.

Weight before workout - 104kgs
GET ****ED! That pisses me off... But there's a lesson to learn here. No time to piss and moan, just need to get back down to business...

* Speed rope - 5 x 3 minute rounds
Felt pretty light and springy considering. My coordination is improving every day.

* Heavy bag (Boxing) - 5 x 3 minute rounds
Not a terrible hand session, but could have given more time to effective movement. Volume was okay...

* Heavy bag (Kickboxing) - 5 x 3 minute rounds
****ing hell kicking sucks the wind out of you. Output was mediocre but I honestly challenged myself when it came to leg-kicks. Hard session.

* Treadmill - 30 minutes
Pace 10.5km/h, incline 1.5, 2 half paced breaks of 2:30 for 25 minutes run, 5 minutes active rest. Last 5 minutes was run at 11km/h.

Weight after workout - 103.3kgs
Okay, so that drastic drop probably means a lot of the excess weight I was carrying was fluid and other crud, but I still hate taking a backward step. Better eating for the rest of the week...

Week 4
17/11/2009
Where to start? My fat ass fell off the bandwagon in a big way come my mate's wedding. There was beer, champagne, red wine, white wine, big **** off jugs of Pimms with fruit and shit floating in it... Wedding cake... Fatty food... ****tails. And to make matters worse I remedied my hangover with day after day of shitty food. Terrible, terrible lapse. Alcohol is my kryptonite. I's failed to record a workout on the 12/11, after which my weight sat at a low 102.9kgs.

Weight before workout - 104.9kgs
I expected worse, but sometimes I'll get a delayed jump in weight. back down to business is the only thing now.

* Speed rope - 5 x 3 minute rounds
Felt tired and lethargic, plus my rope is about to die. It's frayed almost to the middle by one of the handles.

* Heavy bag (Boxing) - 5 x 3 minute rounds
Terrible punch output today.

* Heavy Bag (Kickboxing) - 5 x 3 minute rounds
By now fatigue in my shoulders was becoming a real issue, almost no torque on my left whatsoever. Extremely disappointing. My kicks were okay but didn't feel the satisfying pain through my obliques that I got last week.

Weight after workout - 105kgs
Clearly there's still a lot of crud in my system. No excuses, have to lay off the shitty foods and juice again. Cunting cunt of a week.

Week 4
19/11/2009
Took a day off yesterday to buy some new gear I needed. Trainers, hand wraps, speed rope, shorts... While I wasn't necessarily happy to skip a day at this point, it psyched me up pretty good.

Weight before workout - 104.7kgs

* Speed rope - 5 x 3 minute rounds
Pretty good workout today. Slack with the double-unders, but I'll build it up through the week.

* Heavy bag (Boxing) - 5 x 3 minute rounds
My jabbing and movement was essentially non-existent today. All power combos... Output was good but I need to concentrate more on boxing the bag, not punching the shit out of it, next time.

* Heavy bag (Kickboxing) - 5 x 3 minute rounds
Kicking was alright, could push myself to do more. But when my kicks failed I made up for it in punches... Not he worst, but I could have done better.

* Treadmill - 30 minutes
Pace 10.5km/h, incline 1.5, 2 half paced breaks of 2:30 for 25 minutes run, 5 minutes active rest. I bought trail x-trainers yesterday, the girl told me that the only difference between them and regular x-trainers is the more rugged soles. I wish she'd told me how heavy and cumbersome they are. Ah, well... Whatever doesn't kill me...

Weight after workout - 104.1kgs
I don't wanna speak too soon but it looks like I got off rather lightly for all my shitty eating and drinking.
