ANNOUNCEMENT: Struggling?



  • Are you struggling? Hit the wall? Lacking motivation? MvJ has hit the wall a bit, and I see from the logs there are a few posters in that boat.

    Do not despair. This is the thread for you 🙂

    Most of us have been going a month or more, so we deserve some time off. Take it. Have the weekend off, do no exercise, eat some bad food and relax. Three nights and two full days off to relax will be better for your health and wellbeing than all the diets and exercise you can cram into that period.

    Then, on Monday, we'll refocus and aim at a short-term goal, namely a one-week burst of activity which everyone will be keen for after a great rest.

    Tonight being Friday MvJ has grabbed an Oporto chicken burger with large chips and eaten it lying on the couch. My first fast food in over a month! Next I'm going to watch Friday Night Games and drink a bottle of Poet's Corner. Ahh... bliss. (I do have a rugby game on Saturday, but otherwise it's a weekend off Fatbusting for me.)

    Who else is in, and what are your plans?



  • Fark I'm in.  Unfortuantely that has been the same most weekends.  Unlike you my Husband doesn't let me drink wine    :happy: so I will instead have a few beers.

    Have a 40th to attend this weekend too so no chance of being 'good'



  • mate off to the gym tomorrow morning, and then off to JP and Mokey's wedding, so will be food wine and beer all round.  But otherwise this weekend is an eat whatever yiou want to.  Most weekends have one day off for me at any rate, can't be a saint ALL the time...



  • Classic TSF, two replies and already it's turned into a "who can have the most hedonistic weekend competition"Â



  • :happy:

    I've started the weekend (Friday morn being the beginning of the weekend ) with a Fried brekke.  Beers tonight at a job inteview/proposal. and then the Fortieth tomorrow, started at the pub with the Arsenal game.

    After squash I take it?



  • Of Course



  • The first Fatbusters casualty will be a cardiac arrest MvJ thinks, but not in the way we might have thought  :happy:

    Seriously though, any thoughts on beating the training blues or whatever it is, let's have them fellas. By squash I assume you mean the sport and not the drink which one might mix with a stiff vodka...

    Indeed.  Squash, the sport.
    Variation helps with the training blues. When truly concentrating on getting fit, I have to mix up the types of excercise I do or I end up flagging it.  Thought about going a gym?



  • Yeah, MvJ does not do gyms. Also of value is not getting ahead of yourself I reckon. Babysteps!!!



  • I have actually had the week off from exercise :shifty: so I will be with you lads in spirit, and down the oval chasing my tail at some point as well as doing a shedload of gardening today.



  • I had Nutella today. Nutella is bad.

    I'll feel better tomorrow - going to the gym in the morning (the first bit of training I've been able to do since I got whacked by the Samoan dude) and Weight Watchers.



  • I'm not joining your fat busters yet, but im trying to sort my diet out.

    When im drinking now, I reach for the unsalted peanuts instead of the salt&vinegar chips or skittles.... its a hard change.  😕



  • This thread is well overdue. Now week 5 and total weight loss= [color=red][size=7]0[/size][/color].

    Had the flu so drank, then getting over the flu so drank, then in Melbourne and Adelaide so had to drink. At least I haven't put weight on  :shocked:

    Aat the pub on Friday night planned out a new regime starting today. Then got wasted and forgot it :whistle:

    SEconded... With the HK 7's this weekend followed by a lads weekend in Bangkok over Easter, I'm not really sure where this fat busters thing can start for yours truly.

    May?



  • MvJ, that IS the weekend off for me mate  😕

    [/quote]Well since I find it hard to motivate myself for a run (and generally hate it), I try and get in as many sports as I can. Play indoor netball & soccer 3-4 times a week, plus rugby trainings, etc.

    Pre-season I did a lot of speed training which I quite liked as I worked up big sweats and also felt like I was achieving something, and would go no longer than 30 mins. Workd a lot on footwork, etc, so it's quite a challenge to be able to master certain variations of steps when you're as unco as myself.

    Get yourself one of these from somewhere:

    And some of these:

    And then do something like this:
    [url="http://www.google.co.nz/search?hl=en&q=speed+training&meta="]http://www.google.co.nz/search?hl=en&q= ... ning&meta=[/url]

    And you can make up a program or just try do stuff on your own from material on the net. Or else get a vid or a trainer for a one-off or something.



  • Made the most of the weekend, finished off by going to the supermarket and finding the biggest peice of cow I could find and doing a massive roast.

    Feeling rather large today



  • you have been conspicious by your abscence Mr H Roo.



  • Indeed.  I think I need to sort my shit out re: weight loss.  Just doing the bare minimum ad getting nowhere apart from being more fit
