Fat lazy git: Donsteppa



  • Right, after my good work getting down from 86.5kgs to 83-84 over January and early February, I've spent the first week of fat busters playing a game of touch, scoffing Pebbles, drinking coke by the tanker load, and at various work lunches during the week availing myself of as much food as possible.

    Current weight: 84kg
    Height: 1.77m
    Goal weight range: 78-80kgs
    Timeframe: As long as it takes  :happy:

    WIll post any progress today once I do something other than scoff chips in front of the cricketÂ



  • Right, just dragged myself out for a 30 minute bike ride and a 20 minute jog. Unfortunately it is not an instant miracle cure for fat gittishness and I want my money back...

    Also discovered that the ferals are back in town after my usual cycle route so far over the summer took me past several student parties not recently encountered. This earned me plenty of abuse from strategically placed couches.



  • sling some abuse at them as you go past to add a sprint option to your cycle  😁



  • Judging by the amount of glass around there'd have been a slalom session dodging the flying bottles too!  😁



  • Right!

    Played touch for about and hour and a half, biked there and back, and mowed the lawn. Big feed of Chinese for dinner though...



  • 20 minute cycle and 20 minute run, along with some free weights. Not to mention a "gourmet chicken burger & fries" at lunch and about a litre of coke all up. Wonder if I've cancelled the exercise out... hmmm.  :nta



  • you drinking coke Dons?  Try that coke zero - had one with subway tonight - it rocks, almost can't tell the difference between it and the real thing.  Still like the taste of diet coke though!!

    A litre of coke, isn;t that 3 cups of sugar worth?????



  • I'm slowly gathering the will power to try Coke zero given the rep it seems to have. I've always been a big fan of Coke & Pepsi - but any diet versions thereof or of any soft drink are viewed as bilge water  😁



  • maaate, ots got the same sickly syrupy sweetness as the real thing.



  • Yeah the Coke Zero is pretty bloody good Don. A mate of mine is a fiend for the regular stuff but is amazed at the taste and says if it wasn't for the lack of sugar he'd drink it all the time. As it is he drinks a strict 1:1 ratio, but then he dragonboats nearly every day so needs the energy.



  • Still hovering around 83-84kgs but seem to be losing fat (slowly) and gaining muscle.

    Yesterday: Biked to rugby training and back and helped out with a couple of the drills as Assistant Gopher as requested. Got to watch JP fat busting instead of participating as I'm likely to be out much of the time with work this year. Then did some free weights, situps, ad a 20 minute jog.

    Today: Mmmmm. KFC.  :whistle: 25 minute bike ride and 25 minute run, situps and free weights. No coke though  👼



  • No coke today. Biked to and from training and got roped into the last fitness drill which was more than enough training for Donsteppa. Then biked up to the Uni fields to jog a lap, and did some free weights when I got home. 83kgs.



  • Time for an update. A few half-pie efforts at exercise in the last few days but nothing too noteworthy. 83kgs still.

    That Coke Zero is good. Becareful though, it has more caffeine than normal coke (but less than diet coke).



  • Still 83kgs, been a bit mixed on diet and exercise. Had a fill-in game yesterday for the Presidents against my old/current/not sure what I'm doing this year under 85kgs side as they were a bit short for the preseason game (that I'd planned on watching). Lots of work needed would be a fair assessment...



  • Just back from Wellington. One run round Oriental Bay... but visits to Burger King, Maccas, and being fed by work for morning tea and lunches negates that somewhat...



  • On balance, a relatively useless week all round!Â

    However, still 83kgs and plotting to get back into it this week.



  • Don you're an inspiration to us all



  • Keep at it steppa, I know the work thing makes it tricky.........Shark and I are almost expected to get trolleyed once or twice a week on the company, plus the dinners etc

    crips I almost feel sorry for myself!! free piss and kai what the............... :whistle:

    Yep, that's how I found myself fat-busting  😁

    Could possibly claim an 82kgs today but it was before breakfast and after a visit to the bog  👼



  • Still 83kgs. Been for a few irregular runs/bike rides over the past couple of weeks but work keeps getting in the way.



  • Amazing, despite running only twice a week and eating like a small pig I've been wavering between 82kg and 83kg. Giving me incentive to step it up again to really get some resultsÂ

    Still thats down from 87kgs at the start of the year  👼 😁



  • well done small pig  :happy:



  • That'll do pig. That'll do

    😁

    Have tried the Coke Zero and while it's not quite the Evil Filth that is Diet Coke, it's still on a slippery slope.Â



  • Four days of cycling and running in a row. This calls for a pie.



  • Do your exercise first thing the morning steppa, apparently it is the best time to burn fat.



  • is alos the best time for a sleep in Weka...



  • Five days in a row, this calls for the pie to be washed down with a burger...

    Unfortunately Bart is correct.

    However, I've discovered a cunning plan of taking running gear to work, getting Mrs Steppa to drive the car home at the end of the day and me running home instead. Only a 20 minute run but a way of avoiding the coming winter blues of getting home after dark and being too lazy to go out again.  😁



  • running in hams in winter fog, take yhour long johns Mr Steppa.  Brrrrrr.



  • Not much movement in the last couple of weeks but down to 82kgs now - 2 since Fatbusters and 5 since the start of the year. Time to get back into the exercise side of things on a regular basis methinks... 80kgs is so tantalisingly close as the next milestone!



  • Once under 80kg steppa you should be barred from this site!!!

    Thought it was fatbusters???? Not wanna be jockeys!!

    I believe Emma the Moderator is now under 80kgs...



  • Fat busting should be suspended until daylight savings is closer again.

    Suspect there will be very little fast busting progress until that time.  😁



  • Still on hold for the winter. No fatter, no thinner.  😁



  • Was just liught enough when I got home from work to entice me out for the bike to the lake/run round lake/bike home circuit. Took me about 5 minutes longer than it did back in March - now an hour all up



  • well done that man, getting fit for the upcoming NPC eh  😁

    It's a tough job strolling up and down the sideline with a hot d... camera... in my hands, but someone has to do it.  :happy:



  • 5 runs in the last week - maybe I dpn't need to wait till daylight saving. It not being so frigging cold outside might be helping though.  :happy:



  • it nice running in the cold though if you have the right kit - the full tracksuit, wooly hat etc.  Have been for a few runs in Hams over the years (very few), and enjoyed them, fog, etc.Â

    If you stop running in the fog, and no one sees you stop, does it count...?
