    After a lengthly battle with various roadblocks in my training, mostly health related - Im now at a point where i can start to get back into it.

    At the moment no way in hell am i going to be able to lift any heavy weight let alone train with weights as my joints aren't all 100% just yet, so it will be cardio (i.e. jogging with my dog) and some bodyweight exercises when I'm up to it.

    Stats - 5'11, devilishly handsome, more padded than I'm comfortable with.

    Will try and be as rigid as i can with this as i want results by the time i go away in November.

    Thanks @Pip

    First jog of the week

    Around 35 minutes, including 15 minute cool down back. Least i think it was. Jog there and 4 laps with the monster in tow.

    Had to stop due to the heat and feeling like i was going to pass out and my heart was going to come out of my chest.

    Coffee in the morning approx 10am, left the house at 10:30 am and got back around 11:15

    Not had anything to eat yet as my stomach is still in knots. Aiming for sub 1200 kcal's per day to really shed the fat

    4x Pink lady Apple

    1x small pear

    20g of cheese 30% reduced fat

    1x satsuma

    Assortment of supps 4x fish oil, 15mg k2, 5000ui D3

    salad with parmesan and sundered tomatoes

    sandwich with dr zaks bread, smoked salmon and cream cheese (got the bread piss cheap)

    300g greek yogurt with cut comb honey

    melon slices

    If your joints are a problem mate then is jogging the best cardio for you? It always kills my knees, even when they're a-pk with squatting.

    Id suggest some flexibility and conditioning excercises - yoga seems to work well for me

    For some reason impact cardio doesnt affect me much, on the bike and I'm in bits. Same with weights, its just the actual load that makes me bear over in agony.

    Best of luck.


    A few of us on here have been out with health & injury issues this year. Important thing is to do what you can & keep going.

    Shouldn't be difficult for you, you have the knowledge, especially nutrition wise, just a matter of applying it.

    Coffee ingested. Lousy nights sleep, but found out I'm now an uncle in law (well not married but close). 

    Jogging calls soon with the monster in tow. Lousy day as well yesterday had to wait an hour for my partner to come and rescue me as the key to my car broke in two, separating the immobiliser from the actual key. Cant use one without the other which is bloody stupid. Citroen wanted

    Small stir fry with satay sauce and veggie pieces

    2x wholemeal tandoori wraps with veggies

    greek yogurt with sugar free maple syrup

    olives with veggie beef slices

    Did not feel well this morning, too much food to be honest in terms of volume with the veggies and fruit, will cut back today.

    Jog was around 25 minutes this morning, same route so it seems I'm getting faster and will have to do more laps. Must try and get out earlier as the heat is killing me.

    Must keep on track today to make up for yesterday, a deadline will be met as well as my goal. November 18th, get lean or die trying!
