I’ve packed on 6kg during lockdown. The gyms were shut and I worked from home right near my fridge.

Since the gym has reopened I’ve been 10 days in a row and have lost 1.5kg.

Maintaining weight is a constant struggle for me usually, so being trapped inside has been quite a nice break in that regard as my calorie expenditure is much lower. Given my maintenance is currently 3300/day, you can imagine what it was before lockdown!

Just remembered to weigh myself: 80kg.

Lost 2.5 kgs this week.  6 out of 7 days of a diet.  KFC on Wednesday was a slight blip.

155.5kgs today.  


With the best, thats a good bit of PR, though I would say the Bedford team, theres, like, you know, 13 blokes who can get together at the weekend to have a game together, which doesnt point to expansion of the game. Point, yeah go on!

Two weeks ago my wife and I started doing Tai Chi. We watch You Tube, Don Fiore  daily 20 minutes for beginners.

I had been doing 30 minutes of exercise bike and pushing myself to my limit. So I thought I was quite fit.

The tai chi still gets me though. It may be slow and gentle but we both feel the benefit.

After two weeks I still have not mastered the move " Snakes Tongue".

Headed to Cayton Bay Sunday( 6am) . Dropped wife at Filey . She wanted to run along the cliff to Cayton (5mile ish . )  I ( and dog) covered over 3 miles along Cayton fantastic Beach waiting for wife . Had breakfast in van then spent 2+ hours in the surf on kayak , dog and wife covered another 3ish miles . 1st time this year in the surf had muscle burn plus face was as red as a beetroot , not sure how as sea mist was along the coast until mid afternoon . Tide was now dropping dog still looked like it wanted another blast so grabbed the litter picker and cover 2+miles filling the bag with plastic from the high water mark . £3 to park , toilets , surf shop , controlled access to parking area . Few people on beach near the get down but loads of room . Great place to blow the cobwebs away , get the heart pumping , burn the fat .....

163.8lbs for me this week.  Had to drop a lot of activity out due to injury.  Just maintaining through basic walking and watching what goes down the gullet.

I think a new thing has benefits all of its own, for body and mind.

Living life well.

I got in an intense 30 minutes on the punch bag, but no more than a stroll today.

I have started using light weights instead of press ups or the heavy bag, and that strained wrist of a few weeks is starting to recover. More boring though.

80.4 kg

I’m changing up my fitness program.

It will have more cardio and more compound exercises.

I’ve introduced medicine ball slams, kettlebell swings, medicine ball over the shoulder drops, yoke carry and other good stuff.

In a few days I’ll also introduce box jumps, weighted sled push and rack pulls
