This week and today
I have had a great Xmas week. I only went to the gym today and did a serious 2 hours total body exercise.
I did 30 minutes of cardio and at least around 45 minutes of resistance and weights. I also tried a new exercise. It’s called Cable squat Row and pull. I tried this one as it works on your whole body; legs, back, torso and arms. I would recommend you try it once if you have a weighted cable.
Quick note: You should not do any workout if you are in sharp pain, if it is a muscle pain and anything below the neck it should be OK. But consult a doctor before doing anything.
This weekend I am planning to go to the Islington (platinum) fitness first in the morning and then head to my university to revise for the day. I am planning to eat some home made sandwich to bring or I could put some tuna in a container with some green pepper, tomato, olives and other things that I can find at the store.
Tomorrow I am planning to do some cardio and some little bit of weights. Maybe I would be doing some rowing and running. I might even try for 1 hour straight running! My longest ATM is 40min at around 9km/h or 6mi/h. And that is on around 1-1.5 incline!
I’ll post up on an update soon!!

I think I have hit a plateau, for the past 2-3 weeks I have been around the 91-90kg mark.
What causes a plateau?
1. Lowering my calorie intake: by going down on the calorie intake, my body would get into starvation mode, this means that everything I will be eating will be stored up as fat faster. And because my body is an endomorph I am already pron to storing fat.
2. Lost of muscle mass:
3. Got used to the regular program
Solution:Get a personal trainer and change your routine and add more reps/sets to your work out to burn parts of your body.
I will try to change my routine for the following weeks and month. I will only stick to one routine for 2 weeks until I change so that it keeps my body active to the unplanned work. I will try to incorporate a lot of different exercises and do more reps and eat better.
Below are some screens of the guide I described before in a previous post. Please use it to help you lose weight
This week was quite different from the weeks in the past few months. This is so as this week I went to the gym 4 days continuously and did around 1 hour of exercise.
After 4 days I feel quite burnt up and not stressed out as much. I feel quite warm and hot atm, might be the metabolism being risen.
No revision done so far, I am aiming to do some tomorrow.
Recently I posted about something I found on Men’s fitness. If you are in the UK and is aiming to lose weight I would recommend to spend a few £ on this month’s issue.
Basically there is 9 pages from page 54. It has a really good and rough guide to getting to your goal (which I presume is definition or weight loss (fat loss)).
It breaks it down to the 3 body types; ectomorph, endomorph and mesomorph.
If you missed the issue I can help you out in getting a copy of the section, it is definetly worth getting!
After work today I went to the gym again, not too tired.
I also found something new today after reading men’s fitness magazine. The best way to burn fat is to do continuos cardio on a fatburn zone. the fatburn zone is 60% of your target heart rate.
By doing that you are more prone to burn fat.
I will be trying it out for a few days and see what happens.
BTW this week I am aiming to get around 90kg and below. This is my goal for 2008, and I really want to achieve it.
I’ll post update soon
For the past 9 months or so I have not felt this sick feeling after over stuffing on food before sleeping.
I used to chew down a lot of food before sleeping and it made me get a heart burn.
Now I don’t get this so often due to the portion control and continuing to aim at my goal.
Today I hit the gym after work.
I felt really sleepy finishing off work tonight. I felt like not going, but I eventually took the car keys and went. I was not disappointed, it actually helped.
Well it could have been the coffee I had before going, but anyways I had a good 40min cardio and 10min core exercise and a cooldown.
I also need to start doing some revision for January as it will be pretty fucking tight! I will have my first exam on the 5th when I come back from holiday.
Tomorrow’s plan is to get all my shit done for work, head to the library if I am not tired and maybe go to the gym.
For some reason I have been really sleepy all day for no reason. It just got me and hit me hard. I nearly dozed off at work.
I probably need to get something checked up asap at the GP.
Well enough talking for tonight, I will post a little bit more tomorrow.
I walked for around 3-4 hours in the freezing cold today with just a big jacket, fleece and gloves. From a quick calculation it worked out that I burnt more than 900 calories walking, which is pretty good.
I hope tomorrow will be the same and that I will be able to hit the gym quite early and then burn some more. Then I will try to concentrate on my coursework and revision for January!
I also did something bad today, I ate a muffin and a few chocolate. I skipped my normal lunch and had a pasty as I wanted something really hot.
I went to Morissons to get a veggie pasty, but to later find out that the pasty was super cold! I waited for around 10-15min for it and it was not worth it!. Fresh not!
I’ll keep you guys updated now that I have some more time on my hand.
