Matt beats his ass for two and a half weeks - Page 10

post #136 of 182
Thread Starter 
Just finished my last run and gym session...I am 76.6...just under a 4 kilo loss in about sixteen days. A tick under ten pound for the sake of metrically challenged Americans. So there we go....not bad, right? I fly to Tokyo tonight, so I guess that's the end of this thread and this little exercise. I said in my first post that I hover between 73 and 76, and I am almost back in that range...given that the next week will be in Japan, walking a lot, and presumably eating local food, which is generally pretty damn healthy, I will probably be back in that range by the time I return (although alcohol will be promptly reintroduced to my system). I think I have done really well actually. I have turned down all kinds of stuff, ranging from pizza to countless nights out (well, not countless, 16 ), and with the exception of a work function that morphed into a date, and another date, I haven't had a drink. I have endured a sea of torment from my friends. Bastards. I love those boys. The least healthy thing I have eaten is lasagne - and that was bought for me by a caring roommate when I had a splitting headache and just grunted to get me 'whatever' and closed my eyes again. I have had only two or three sodas, a couple of juices and morning coffees, otherwise, all water. There's a bottle beside me now actually. I have been honest when I have failed both to myself, and have transcribed it here for all to see. So I guess there we have it...I have said often on these boards that my pet hate is when people start 'how do I ____?' threads that they use only as excuses to say that they looked into it and it is impossible for them because (whatever). I have a busy lifestyle, both professionally and socially, and I managed to fit it in. I live in a place with less dining options than probably anyone else on the whole forum - it is harder for me to eat well here than for most of the rest of you - but I managed. I am nursing a fucked knee courtesy of bad technique and an overzealous kickboxing sparring partner, and I don't think I even mentioned it, I just strapped a band around it, stretched, and ran anyway. I'm not overly concerned about maintenance. Typically, as per my response to GQ's earlier doubts, I maintain just by lifting and boxing, and I will be back to that post Tokyo. I needed a shot in the ass, and I gave myself one. I think that's a good thing that I both recognised it, and delivered on it. I don't really know how to end this post...it's erring on the side of self righteous already, but I am happy with what I have achieved, and not shy about admitting that. Good luck with your own goals, and see you after I get back...

Just checked back in. Congrats M@tt. You are one of those fortunate souls that gets to eat what they want because they are not gym pussies. Conversely, you slowly become a food pussy. When you get fat, you can beat your ass at the gym because you're not a gym pussy. I'm writing a book.

The signifier is the signified, but the signified is not the signifier. It's complicated. And shit.

son. of. a. bitch. I'm back up to 81. Fuck. In case that wasn't clear. Fuck. OK, here we go again, as much for my own sake as for anyone else's I am going to document out my kick-my-own-ass regime again as I try to get back into the mid seventies where I belong. Some things happened late last year that had me rendered pretty-fucking-busy, and as such I neglected exercise, but even then, stayed within my typical maintenance band of 73-76 or so; however Christmas, New Years, and Chinese New Year spent back in Australia (fish and chip shops and extensive array of chocolates oh how I miss thee). So, now, have to pay the price. I have decided on the following exercise regime: 1. run 20 mins 3x a week 2. punching bags 3 rounds 3x a week 3. boxing class at least once a week 4. lifting regime as documented earlier - basically major compound muscles - 3 x a week 5. 10 km cycle 2x a week. I watched a Robert Cialdini presentation, he said the phrase "we live up to what we write down" so I am documenting it here for public humiliation purposes, and keeping a piece of paper by my laptop so I can check those things off as I go. Diet wise, I have made a simple commitment...I know that if I go an introduce science into this, I just won't follow it. I don't have the time to count calories etc. But I have a decent idea of what's good for me, so, my diet regime will boil down to the following binary query: "is this shit?" If the answer is either 'yes' or 'kinda', remove mouth from vicinity. No alcohol. No soda. Fuck. No chocolate. Fuuuuck. OK, here we go again....

boxing class done, pho for dinner with ice tea (VNese ice tea, not the bottle sugary kind), riding the bicycle in the morning. I have lasted three hours already. Wasn't so hard

Keep it up Matt!

FWIW, I'm trying to cut a few before the next race in five weeks. If I'm lucky I'll bottom out at 73 but 75 is more reasonable, which also should keep me from depleting.

This should definitely be interesting
