    Last weigh in (24/6/2017): 94.9kgs (209.22lbs)


    My weigh ins are less routine at the moment so I think I'll start doing my weigh ins this way, just record the last one I did. Saturday morning is normally a good time as well as it generally comes off the back of five days of excellent diet and exercise.
    My weeks have followed a familiar pattern over the last three weeks: excellent diet and exercise during my working week, Tuesday to Saturday, followed by excellent workouts and terrible eating on my Sunday/Monday weekend. The good news is my weight is still trending downward (albeit slowly). This isn't likely to change in the next two weeks as the British Lions vs the All Blacks games fall on the next two Saturdays, so it's a foregone conclusion that I'll be having beers. We're also in the thick of the grascourt tennis season, so each Sunday night, a tennis final and a pasta cookup have been my little treat. And while this isn't producing the rapid weight loss I deire, I actually feel for the first time maybe ever that I'm nailing the "balanced" lifestyle of eating, the occasional beer and exercise. I could see myself living this way long term once I reach whatever my weight goal is. Once Wimbledon finishes I'll have basically bang-on two weeks until I fly to Europe on holiday, so I can buck previous trends, exercise hard and diet well and head off to holiday on a high.

    Friday and Saturday were bereft of workouts as I did consecutive 16 hour shifts, although the eating was excellent and I had a few pints of low carb beer after work each time. As mentioned above, Sunday night was a massive pasta cookup while I watched the finals of Halle, Birmingham and Queens Club and eating wise, today was an utter stinker.

    There were however two gangbuster workouts logged in. Last night I got a completely empty gym for the entirety of my workout which was utter bliss. Half an hour on the treadmill followed by my usual chest and shoulder circuit: 2x12 shoulder presses, 2x12 front delt raises, 2x12 shoulder flyes, 2x12 smith bench, 2x12 dumbell bench press, 2x12 dumbell chest flyes.

    Tonight was the half hour on the treadmill followed by a bicep/back circuit consisting of 2x12 ez bar curls, 2x12 hammer curls, 2x12 cross body curls, 2x12 lat pull downs, 2x12 seated rows, 2x12 bent over dumbell rows.

    I've been walking around all week with a general dull muscle ache which has been weirdly motivating and somewhat satisfying, a reminder that my body is still burning calories well after the workout. Time will tell if I can crack the much vaunted 90kgs threshold by the end of July.

    Morning weigh in: 95.1kgs (209.66lbs)


    Well this has crept up fast... my proposed four months is nearly over and it looks as though I'll be able to say I've lost 10kgs after some very up-and-down habits.
    Hit the gym yesterday before work and did only the half hour treadmill, and just now got in after work for one round of speed rope before the biceps/back circuit.
    Eating has been great and look to break below 95kgs again for my "official" 1st of July weigh in on Saturday morning.

    Well, what an epic fail the last couple of weeks have been. :lol: Between Wimbledon and the Lions tour of NZ I've been on a steady diet of beers, terrible food and being glued to the TV rather than the treadmill.
    With the Championships ending tomorrow night and my Eurotrip two weeks away, I have the opportunity to "pull this month out of the fire" like I did in April. I weighed in at 99.8kgs yesterday morning, which tells me I have a substantial fluid flush in my system. I work tonight until 9 so I'm not gonna work out unless I get a serious early mark. Tomorrow I'll have a day off, so I'll get a workout in before enjoying some food while I watch Federer hoist his 8th Wimbledon, then I'm back on the wagon until I have a Blame Canada burger the Friday night before I fly.
    If I see a 95 on the scales by the time I go I'll be happy.
    It all begins with acknowledging my failures though.

    Well, logged the second workout of the month and it feels good. No idea what my weight is right now, but I look a little bit fucking fat. No point fretting over it though, can only focus on finishing the month on a high.
    Cracked out my half hour treadmill and followed it with the bicep circuit consisting of hammer curls, ez bar curls and cross body curls.
    Ate a breadless burger for lunch without fries, with some pan fried squid on the side... the chefs replaced the bread with slices of lettuce so I could pick the thing up... I didn't ask them to do that, but it was awesome!
    Very early start tomorrow so won't be getting much sleep... whether or not I work out depends on what time I finish, but I'll do my best.

    Well, I don't know how wise it was, but I backed up a 5:30am-6:30pm work day (that's a 4am wake up off about three hours sleep) with a workout consisting of my half hour of treadmill and a shoulder workout (1x12 shoulder barbell presses, 2x12 front shoulder raises, 2x12 shoulder flyes).
    I nailed it pretty easily and look a little thinner for it, as my body tries to flush out two weeks of bloat.
    As is always the case when I do the early start, my eating was shocking yesterday. It started well enough but by midday I was bloody starving, and a guy from a neighbouring restaurant brought in a bloody pizza (had two slices). I also ate a lot at night time before the workout. But, as stated above, no use fretting over it. If this is my version of being terribly unhealthy (workout and all), I'm a quantum leap better than I was this time three years ago. Will weigh in on Sunday post-workout.
