FAT BOY IS GIVING AWAY FREE MONIES...

You will understand the title in a moment but a bit of background first...

Since mid-december and all the Christmas holidays I kinda slumped off going to the gym. Anyone who does weight training will know how quickly you can undo a lot of hard work. I think the actual term for it is reversability or something like that.

This basically sums up my situation as since mid-december I can't have made more than 10 or so trips to the gym and my strength etc has suffered as a result. The more you stay away and the less motivation you have to go back.

I'm not going to stop though because I was finally getting into really good shape before Xmas and I know it won't take me too long to get back there. It didn't help that my mate who I train with went off travelling for four months either.

When I train I tend to eat like a horse and unfortunately I've kept this up the last few months since not really training. I now weigh 85kg which is my heaviest for a while. When I was in Nottingham I lost a bit of weight without even realising it...pretty easy to do when most days I was eating one meal a day - in the casino. Anyway on sunday, my nan commented to me - 'you look fat today'. Coming from a woman who is 5 foot 2 and almost 18 stone I knew I had to get into gym gear again, fast!

As of right now I am 86kg and have set myself the target to lose 6kg by the end of April. That's only 2 months away and is actually quite a lot of weight for me to drop considering I will be taking my protein shakes again daily and weight training again which means I will gain some weight that way. To make sure I do this I will transfer £50 to anyone who reads this blog if I fail to meet my target my the end of April. (Just post in comments section to be included). I'm capping it at 20 people cos I don't wanna shell out more than £1k if I lose but want it to be enough to make sure that none of you bastards get a penny of my hard de-generated cash.

In the meantime I will be putting in a session of teh online pokerz tonight (=babysitting) whilst my olds are at my little sisters parents evening and will go to the gym for a shoulders and tris session later on.

I'm not bothered about the potential of winning £50 but would like some adivce on the gym!

I've done bugger all for about 4-5 years and have put on a decent amount of weight. What I want to know is, would it be better to do some cardio or swimming first, get back into the swing of things before hitting the weights?

Good luck with the training. When I was in my 20s and 30s I used to train every morning before work, Rugby training 3 times a week in the nights and play Rugby on a Saturday and Footie on a Sunday. Couldn't run a bath now.

Just get the 6kg lost - much rather hear about that than take £50 off you!

Good luck with the challenge Greek. (Junglecat03 off blonde.) I struggle with the gym a little...have to go away every month for 9 days or so to cover the latest EPT so it disrupts my rhythm of going but at last after 3 years of semi lethargy induced by the poker lifestyle, I am starting to get regular sessions and feel healthier. Hope you meet your weight target and I enjoy the blog. ;) gl

Good luck with this mate,

I expect 50p if you don't make it. That means you were freerolling on the staking you gave me ;)
