    Day 38:
    Weighed in this morning at 102.7kgs, which is a new best weigh in since the start of the year! Oi! I am buoyed by the fact that I had two days over the weekend just gone where I ate huge cookups of bolognese sauce (no pasta) and sausages and stuff and still managed a decent weigh in.

    Today I ate decently well, almost as good as the 3 point effort above, but caved to temptation a couple of times: one was about six potato chips, another was a chocolate bar that was sitting at work, and the third was a slice of vegetarian pizza (deliberately picked a disproportionately smaller one). These actually aren't all that bad, but all the same I'm deducting a point because they technically aren't allowed on my diet.
    Almost didn't make it into the gym because I stayed back at work, then couldn't find my pass tag when I got home, so only managed the 30 mins cardio, which is 10 mins rower, 20 mins incumbent bike these days.

    Fair play, mate! I was thinking of making it another three month thing, then resetting again. Thoughts? In that context, a week or two is something you can make up for!

    Day 39:
    Weighed in this morning again at 102.9kgs, so pretty much even.

    Started the day with three boiled eggs, then had some peanuts at work. Had a small serve of fried fish pieces at midday, then for lunch I had five lamb kofta balls and some steamed veg with mushroom sauce. Faltered again with a chocolate bar and about 10-15 potato chips. After work I had a small wheel of camembert with 10g smoked salmon, followed by two small tubs of the dairy free yoghurt.
    To think I cursed myself after eating the small amount of chips and chocolate. :lol: If not for those it'd have been a three point day, with those I'm still good for a two, some very good eating there.

    Did my half hour of cardio on the rower and incumbent bike followed by the bench press routine comprising three different exercises. Packed it all into 50 minutes so it was all done at pace and worked out a good sweat. That's three workout days in a row, tomorrow will be a long one at work, so good eating is imperative.

    Best of luck! I'd tell you to hang strong with the eating, but in the same situation I'd be bloody useless. :lol: :sad

    Day 40:
    Ate pretty well all day, as I knew I wouldn't be able to manage a workout. Avoided all the shit that was constantly being waved under my nose... chocolate, chips, fries, pizza. Ate three hard boiled eggs for breakfast, had some fried squid pieces for lunch, some lamb kofta balls at about 4pm, then towards the end of the night, two meals came down from the kitchen that had been mistakes. An eye fillet steak and some herbed lamb cutlets. I fuckin' claimed both as everyone else had been eating junk food all around me all night, and absolutely nailed all the protein and veg off the plates, and left all the creamy mashed potato.

    Day 41:
    And as has been the pattern on Saturdays, after an insane long work day on the Friday followed by a 9am start, my tiredness absolutely fucked my resolve up the wall and I ate fairly badly. Had a chocolate bar, then had a parmigiana for lunch (melted cheese and all) minus the fries, then when I got home I tried to do that thing where I bought a pie and sausage roll and eatthe meat but chuck the pastry... and failed miserably, just ate the bloody things. Fell asleep by about 8pm and slept right through until 8am. Wrecked.

    All zeros

    Day 42:
    Well, a bit of a better recovery this day. I started off the day with three hard boiled eggs, then for lunch had a doner/chicken box with salad and no bread. Went and played tennis with my my mates for about two hours, then for dinner had six beef sausages, each worth about 4g of fat each.

    Day 43:
    Weighed in at 102.3kgs this morning. Had another six beef sausages for breakfast along with two fried eggs. Went into the gym and did 10 minutes on the incumbent bike followed by a leg routine aimed at strengthening my suddenly shit knee. 10x5 smith machine squats, 5x20 leg presses, 6x10 leg extensions, 5x20 dumbbell calf raises. Had about 12 small chicken wings (non-battered and rotisserie cooked) before I went to my two hour tennis group lesson. Did plenty of stop-start running. I'm satisfied to give myself a full six points today given my eating over a long period and effort in a few different exercise disciplines. Knee is a bit sore now, icing and elevating, hoping for the best for tomorrow!

    I know your pain... my week starts off civilized enough... then as it wears on I get into the 12 hour, then 14 hour days.
    Are you making it into the gym at 5am?? Fucking hell, staunch effort! I've categorically failed at getting into the gym in the mornings.

    Day 44:
    Weighed in at 101.9kgs this morning. Best weigh in of the year so far!
    Started off with three hard boiled eggs, two oranges at work, then a total of nine small lamb kofta balls and a small serve of squid over the course of the day. After work I caved and had a protein bar followed by some ash brie with Danish salami, so a bit fatty, but good carb-restriction overall.

    Gym session was a fail though. My knee was fucked all day but managed about 20 minutes total cardio on the rower and the bike, but once again allowed myself to get psyched out of going into the weight room. Pissy effort really, but a very minor setback. I looked back over previous journals and I'm doing pretty well for this time of the year weight wise, and especially with my bum knee.

    Tomorrow will be all about great eating!

    Day 45:
    Fuck... that's about halfway!
    Weighed in at 101.6kgs this morning. The goal by day 60 is to crack below 100kgs, and my next cheat day is 4th of March... well on track!
    Sadly I got kept back at work tonight and ended up pulling 13 hours, so no workout. Eating could have been a 3, but a chocolate bar and some fatty salted peanuts right at the end of the day fucked it up... I always get hungry like that at the end of a long shift... Doing two more in the coming days too! No excuses. I have to be ready for that same feeling tomorrow night and the following night as well.
    Other than the shit listed above I ate three hard boiled eggs, a can of tuna, some cashews, five lamb kofta balls and about five pieces of fried squid.

    Day 46
    : Weighed in at 101.2kgs. Power of dieting.

    This habit of boiling 8-9 eggs at once and leaving them in the fridge has lifted my breakfast game 300%. I'm a bad morning person, usually barely make it to the bus, so cooking/preparing a healthy breakfast has always been a challenge. Now I just grab three of the ones I've boiled up, crack and shell them, slam into them with salt and pepper and I'm good for hours!
    Followed it up with 5 lamb kofta balls and some fried squid, which is turning to my go-to fare at work. Low in carbs and controlled portions.
    I did fuck up by eating yet another chocolate bar though, probably the only thing keeping me from a 3, as dinner was a salad with chicken and avocado.
    Stayed back at work again and barely got into the gym with 15 minutes. But at least I did I guess... Did 5x10 smith squats with weight plates under my heels to elevate/isolate the muscles around my knee (advice from someone who'd been through knee rehab) and FUCK SAKE, what a challenge. After that I struggled getting down the gym stairs at the end as I felt like my quads might lapse!

    Also did 5x20 leg presses and 5x10 leg extensions.

    Didn't have time to do the calf raises, which is a pisser
