V-cycle was off today so decided to do my weights instead. The effect at the end was that I felt like I had more energy. I didn't do the sit-ups and tried to do one-handed movements. This chnaged quickly when I realised it was too tough at the weights initially chosen.

I used the machines as well for chest and back both set @ 80kg. My form wasn't good hoewever.


Dumb-bell bench press: 4 sets, 6 reps, 2 x 28kg

Dumb-bell pullover: 4 sets, 6 reps, 26kg

Dumb-bell romanian deadlift: 4sets, 6 reps, 2 x 28kg

Machine fly: 80kg

Machine chest press: 70kg

Lat pulldown: 80kg

I couldn't bear to look at the scales this morning as I know I'd have been disheartened.

Started the day with protein shakes. Thinking about the gym later.

But the kids are watching too much telly so I need to get home early enough to switch it off.

Nat won the Manager's Player of the season award - I'm chuffed as he deserves it.

Dropped Sara off at Rivers. Too early for the reception staff though.

Another failure!

Just to say I had some easter egg yesterday which made me insatiable for the rest of the night. I didn't gain any weight but didn't lose any either!

Time for drastic measures. I've started the day on a low-carb basis. So far 2 scoops of whey protein powder plus fibre. I've consumed a diet coke too. Managed to resist the biscuits at this morning's meeting but tonight will be the real test - as ever. I figure two weeks on this will lose me a stone.

Salad day

I've been munching on left over salad for most of the day. It's very large and filling. I needed something sweet so have had a couple of cans of coca-cola light. At lunch after failing to find Gilder's in Rotherham I went and had a chicken tikka deli sarnie from McDonald's.

Can I fast for weight loss?

Weighed in at 14st 8.4lbs this morning. Not very impressive but understandable due to the constant eating and drinking during Sunday, which was glorious.

Anyway another crazy scheme to get to my goals.

Cardio - Spinning (39 mins)
