Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread
Just started going to the gym, used to be really active as a kid/teenager, but when i went to uni it all kinda stopped.
I'm a bit on the large side at 5' 9" 16 stone 10, more of an old school rugby type build than truly fat though. Still, saying that, the aim is to lose around 3 1/2 stone.
Been at it for a few weeks now currently going to the gym 3 times a week, mainly aiming to get a calorie burn of over 1,000. Mostly on the cross trainer and bike to reduce the impact on my joints whilst carrying this weight, I'm carrying a fair amount of muscle mass as it is so avoiding the weights for now, with the intention of toning up once I'm getting down in size.
Also Playing golf 2-3 times a week which suprisingly gets a decent calorie burn due to walking/carrying clubs for 7,000 yards over a period of around 4 hours.
I've been recording my diet and exercise using livestrong.com and the aim for my diet is around 2,000 a day consumption which so far I've managed to adhear to for 11 days out of 14. So this week some of my days my deficit has been 1200-1400 calories based on a 2,000 calorie diet other days only 600-700.
Any advice is appreciated and will be taken on board with this.
Thinking of starting to record my results visually from next week to use both as motivation and a reminder once I get to my goal weight.
