Party's Over!

This will be my new journal now!

Basically for the last 2 years I've been slack and let the 9-5 life take over. I've gotten fat and lazy and want to get back to living a healthy lifestyle again. I'm still not going to go back to the gym because I don't enjoy it and life is too short to waste time doing stuff you don't want to do. However, I will be doing body weight exercises, playing basketball, and doing cardio through tempos/sprints. Most importantly I am modifying my diet by not overeating and limiting the amount of fast food I eat.

Current Weight- 96KG
Waist- 43 inches above the belly button/40 inches below the belly button.

Goals-
Lose weight & have a healthier lifestyle.

man, you did get big. good luck bringing back the healthy!  :highfive:

you got some steady work, though? that was one of your main stressors back in the day, if you got something good going then that's great.

I've just got big bones :trollface:

On a serious note I actually put on about 20kg of fat from drinking copious amounts of beer and lots of fast food. I knew I was getting heavier but because I wasn't playing sport anymore I didn't care. The realization that I was getting fat came around a month ago when I had to buy a complete new wardrobe of t-shirts for work. I was wearing Large shirts but I was being strangled so I had to upgrade to XL. After I bought the new shirts I felt alright but than last week I noticed a lot of my trousers weren't fitting anymore. I was sucking in my gut and the buttons popped so that's when I made a decision that I've got to change. When I measured my waist I was horrified. Type II Diabetes, cardiovascular issues, sleep apnea, osteoarthritis and joint/tendon issues are all stuff that I'm exposing myself to by being this heavy. That and the fact that I feel embarrassed to take my shirt off these days as well :-[

On the job front it's going great. I love my job and I'm working in an office now, which has always been the goal. I know some people complain about 9-5 life being boring but compared to labouring or waking up at 3am each morning to work in a meat factory this is like winning the lottery. I've been working in the same job ever since I moved back to my home state in March 2014. That's one huge positive in my life and given me a lot of self-esteem as well as some financial security.

I finish work in a couple of hours and than I'm off to train. It's a beautiful afternoon here so I'm going to go down to the track and do some tempo runs. I was planning on doing some sets of 200m in 30 seconds with 10 minute rest between each set. However, I'm thinking that might be a bit too ambitious since I haven't been to the track at all for yonks. I'll do some tempo 100s instead.

TRACK-

Stretch/Warmup

100m- 15 seconds
9 minute rest
100m- 14 seconds
7 minute rest
100m- 14 seconds
7 minute rest
100m- 14 seconds
7 minute rest
100m- 14 seconds
7 minute rest
By this stage I was feeling like it was too easy so I decided to step it up a notch by lowering the rest down to 4 minutes.
100m- 14 seconds 4 minute rest
100m- 14 seconds 4 minute rest
100m- 14 seconds

It definitely lifted my heart rate taking the rest periods down to 4 minutes. 

Stretch/Cool down

This felt really good. The usual suspect (Achilles tendon) started feeling sensitive as soon as I rocked up to the track. However, my Achilles tendon plays up just sitting at work and getting off my chair in the office. I think it’s just something that I’m going to live with. I’m a real tight ass with my $$$ so I don’t really want to go and see Specialists or physios etc. but my self-diagnosis is that it’s just early arthritis or something because my ankles always crack whenever I’ve been sitting down for a while. Having a BMI of 30 also doesn't help so hopefully once I lose some weight it will take some of the stress of my tendons.

PARK-

Pullups- 3x2
Chin ups- 4x2
Sit ups- 10x2
Dips- 10x2

Bodyweight- 96KG
Waist- 40 inches


SORENESS-

Hamstrings
Calves/Achilles Tendon
Abs

I'll probably be sore tomorrow and I might've been a little overzealous jumping straight back into it but god damn I've missed running.

tendon injury =/= arthritis. also cracking your joints doesn't correlate with arthritis. i can crack a lot of my joints but only have arthritis in two of 'em.

but either way i bet losing some weight will help. pretty fast on those repeat 100s, btw, all things considered. but then you were always a speedy dude.

Thanks LBSS!
My plan is to lose around 20kg (44lbs). That would leave me at 75kg (165lbs).

I actually woke up feeling fairly good today. My hamstrings and glutes are a bit sore but in a good way. My calves are sensitive but I’m still going to do some low intensity exercise today (walking) after I finish work.

TRACK-
Stretch/Dynamic Warm Up

1x200m 28.5 seconds
9 minutes rest
1x200m 29 seconds
Felt fucked so I called it a day.

I had planned to do 3x200m but by this stage I felt fucked and my glutes were locking up so I didn’t push myself. Shit work capacity atm but on the positive I slightly reduced my rest period period (9 minutes down from 10 minutes) and also ran them slightly faster so there was more intensity. So it wasn’t a complete waste of a session.

PARK-
Chin Ups- 5x3
Sit Ups- 12x3
Assisted pullups- 4,3,2 When I used to go to the gym there was a pull up machine that you could use to build up your strength but because I’m exercising in the park I just had to use my girlfriend to help push me up haha. That’s what I’ll be doing from now on when I say ‘assisted pullups’.

BODYWEIGHT- 94KG
MENTAL STATE- Good

TRACK-

Stretch/Dynamic Warm Up
Run throughs 5x50m

1x300m- 46.6
Omg 300m is too far!!!
15 minutes rest
1x300m- 49.1
Went out a bit too hard at the start and got to the 200m bend and felt fucked haha. It was one big struggle over the last 200m. By the 100m mark I wasn't even thinking of my legs I was just thinking of my arms and trying to keep the momentum going. OUT OF SHAPE BUT I WILL IMPROVE.

Warm down

great work on these sprints.. being admittedly out of shape and committing to these 150-300m sprints is no joke. out of shape 400's just make you wish you were dead.

keep it up@!!$

eventually we need jump rope, sprint, and hunched over sucking wind icons for these posts.

Thanks man!
It's not much fun running when you're out of shape. My plan is to keep slowly building up the volume/reducing the rest periods. If I can consistently keep building up the intensity than what I'm doing now will feel like a walk in the park in a few months time.
