I read a sort of blog on here of a guy who completed the insanity workout and i have decided to do my own, in case anyone wants to do it together or plans on doing so in the future...
My name is Ged and i am 32. I have struggled with my weight most of my adult life. The heaviest i got to was just shy of 19 stone in my mid twenties. i decided enough was enough and started jogging, first of all a hundred metres killed me, then it improved until i got to a mile.
from here i got fitter and lost weight, done a first half marathon and got 2hrs 2mins. a second 1hr 50m a third and final 1hr 47m.
last week i completed the liverpool marathon in 4hrs 29 and decided my distance running days were over.
i am still just over 16stone and know my food choices are the primary reason. I have always blamed alcohol for my weight. a simple example would be go out saturday night, have 12-15 pints of lager, a kebab on the way home and then miss sunday football with a big head. oh thanks mum a full english, may as well go and have a few more pints and watch the live footy, etc etc!!
whilst i was marathon training i cut out all alcohol and genuinely wanted to get to race day 15 stone. i never lost any weight because i ate greedy amounts of chocolate and rubbish. i am now slightly annoyed with myself!
so speaking to a chum who lost two stone, he used an iphone app called myfitnesspal to log his food and exercise calories, i have decided to do the same.
Starting today i am doing the insanity workout for the next 60 days and cutting calories to 1750 (before exercise) as this app says. My aim is to get in the 14s for the first time since school. 14 stone 13 will be ok for xmas!!
i will update this as much as i can and will happily chat to other people doing it, done it or wanting to do it.
My waist is 39
my chest is 42
my weight is 16-4
lets see how i get on....
