So I’ve had my lets not bother with what we’re eating month, drinking most nights mainly on the wind down from the cricket season ending and all of a sudden I’ve got time to kill, evenings are back watching the TV rather than visiting cricket grounds and no coaching.
So after putting on about 5 pounds even tho I’ve done the most miles ever on a bike in the month 443 November is fitness month try and get back into shape again, the Friday squash sessions are back at etone with the TOPPS, Saturday is becoming MTB time (mainly due to my bro wanting to get in on the act) and Sunday will be Whitesone Wheelers as usual (steady 50 miles)
I like a drink and I’ve had periods where i don’t bother mainly due to using a good book Allen Carr’s easy way to CONTROL ALCOHOL only downside is that its not a control book its a FINAL DRINK situ at the end, not really what i wanted as a nice bottle of red on a Sunday is a nice finish to the weekend.
So weight loss time to take a steady approach on the booze can i drink 2-3 times a week not talking loads maybe 2-3 beers and a bottle of red at the weekend lets bloody try.
at 6ft 2″ i want to get under 13 stone and at nearly 40 in Feb id like to see a six pack before i leave the world not sure I could and will power will probably leave me at some stage trying.
onwards then November detox and maybe the magic 500 monthly miles gets cracked
UPDATE 7th December 2012
Stress and a new baby coming 8 weeks early haven’t helped, i decided to go on the Bradley Wiggins vodka and tonic diet (get smashed most nights)
with the misses in hospital for 2 weeks and then Cameron being moved 45 miles away travelling and hassle took me back to the cosy drinking most night, not good so except for crimbo activities I’m going on the no booze for Jan/Feb and most of December
as you can see body isn’t in bad or great shape
1st March update
lasted 53 days with no beer, but finally shared 3 beers (over 3 nights) with the wife B’day treat, and only 1 takeaway / sit in curry again b’day, 1047 miles (507 for Feb) so hitting the road well, squash every Friday and started on the swiss ball after watching active channel on sky 282, really glad I took the photos shows without a big change and no alcohol the body looks a lot different that 2 months ago !! lets keep it up limited drink consumption for March again really want a flat stomach and no sign of a beer belly full stop, LIVE BEGINS at FORTY
