The body has an amazing ability to maintain the norm, the more you burn the more fuel the body wants. Only way to lose weight is to monitor what you put in.

Why road diggers don't all look like the rock and posties like Olympic runners.

The body gets used to things. Why you need to chop up your training and break comfort zones.

Hill repeats - now those fuckers will burn fat like nobody's business.

 

Sorry - quick edit, any high intensity invernal training really, as I believe you keep burning fat after you've stopped excersing but I've only ever done hill repeats and they really worked getting my speed up on the longer distance flat runs.

Well tonight is last night of sober October. To be fair not missed it - and not had a ciggie as well for 4 weeks, which is good because after quiting for 4 years starting up again was a bit silly.

Had a few PNs which have been fine but dodged a couple of media liquid lunches. Lost almost a stone, gym everyday, think I'll probably keep on with it - enjoying everything a lot more.

Was all going great till I had a week in Tenerife, boozing every night and not exercising 

Now I'm back home, with loads to catch up on and no time to do anything 

Except keep on boozing 

Going to nip it in the bud after Saturday night 

Hopefully

See what you want to do is have three teenagers, an ex-wife and live in London and then you can't afford to do anything for yourself. Avoids temptation!

Also - I've been ploughing through work like a motherfucker - hence being on here - already done a couple of hours work, feel like one of those High Performance dickwads.

Well done with the stopping smoking, I quit on NYE 2005 and know that if |I| have 1 cig I'll be back on 20 a day, you can do it

To be honest I've had zero cravings, much like the first time I quit, no idea why I started up again but a beer and a ciggie are where I fall down so I'm going to keep dry for a while yet just to be on the safe side....!

Have walked a daily average of 12.5KM for 30 consecutive months now. 

Helps with your state of mind and Its also a trade-off for my alcohol consumption.

Always been fortunate with my weight though, even before the exercise push.
