Fat to Fit at 48

Working out alone in a tiny, converted man-cave, a 48 year old man drops 30 pounds in 18 weeks to prove that he shouldn't have let his ass get that big in the first place. For those who are interested. here's the basics of my diet and training: I trained 6 days a week - 3 days cardio, 3 days weights. The cardio covered running, cycling, rowing, x-trainer & boxing, starting easy and rising in intensity throughout the program. I tried to keep the weights as balanced as possible, but didn't go too heavy. This was partly because I don't want to bulk up any more and partly because I have to be very careful of health and safety training on my own. The exercises varied from bicep curls, shoulder flares and bench press to chin ups, dumbbell shrugs and tricep extensions. Diet was pretty standard and balanced, but with the following rules. No bread, no desserts, no snacks like crisps (potato chips) etc., 6 meals a day but no big ones and no alcohol. I kept strictly to that for 6 days a week and the 7th day was a free day when I could eat anything. A typical day is as follows. Meal 1 (7am) Bowl of cereal with zero fat yoghurt. Meal 2 (10am) Small snack, the size of an energy bar, and an apple. Meal 3 (Noon) Small salad dominated by protein. Meal 4 (3pm) Small snack, size of an energy bar (usually a banana). Meal 5 (6pm-ish) Main meal. Good quality stuff with good protein (salmon etc), vegetables etc. Not too many carbs. Meal 6 (No later than 8) My wife has a Nutribullet now, so we have a fruit smoothie. Golden rule is never eat yourself full and NEVER go to bed on a full stomach.

My last big 18 week program before I settle into a lifetime of maintenance.

Keiko - Our Beautiful, Nutball Akita

For those who are interested, here's a full description of the breed: A wonderful family dog - playful, loyal, affectionate and, once trained, extremely well-behaved in the house. Very good guard dog, good with children and people in general (as long as you are not in the process of breaking in, in which case you're on your own), a dog you will love with all your heart and have that love returned with interest. Important to note that Akitas are a very dominant and wilful breed and are not easy to train, so should not be taken on without full research and consideration of what is required. Strong hunting instincts and the need to dominate other dogs should be allowed for when out walking (Basically, they would make good Sumo wrestlers.) Give them plenty of love, train them properly and allow for their natural instincts and you will never regret the day you decided to adopt one.

This is how I do maintenance. It's a wonder I'm still alive but at least I'm enjoying the ride. The Big 5-0 is next!

Here we go again. Started 2014 in pretty decent shape, happy with my fitness and weight despite the usual debauched Christmas and New Year. Then again, maybe I'd just gotten real good at sucking in whenever there was a mirror around. Time for another crazy training program in a futile but enthusiastic effort to recall my long-lost youth. This video covers the first 10 weeks (of 19)...

Keiko tries her hand at seagull hunting while on holiday in Wales, and turns out to be totally inept.
