- Chub Club 2020
I’m in. Sorry for the late entry, Rob. Never managed much last year what with kids, work and constant allergies. On weapons grade anti histamines which are helping greatly, trying to be more assertive re my need for exercise, trying to not shovel shameful amounts of crap into my body (it’s a wonder I’m not much bigger than I am). Started out around 87 kilos last year, today’s weigh in has me pleasantly surprised at 83.5. I was actually down to 80.something after dropping out of the chub club but then tiredness got the better of me as the eldest decided that sleep wasn’t really his thing and the old cycle of no exercise and crap food came round again. Seems like so many of us are caught in these cycles. On a brighter note for me, three cycle commutes to work (only 4 miles each way but you should see the bike, looks like I’m going bikepacking 🙄) and a run on Tuesday on my break at work and one pencilled in for tonight as well. Exercise is key for me, it helps me cope with life, if I can exercise then everything else should follow and as I keep saying to the gaffer it’ll make me a better dad and partner. Anyway, thanks for listening to my drivel and good luck fellow chubblers. 👍Posted 1 month agognusmasSubscriber
Just weighed myself 😲 Not the heaviest I’ve been but pretty accurate to what I’ve been telling people I’ve put on over the past few years through comfort eating (especially the last 18 months). I’m by far the biggest chub there lol.
Conservative target put in but hopefully a bit more too. Just hope I have the motivation to do this now, I know I need to 🤞Posted 1 month ago
Heaviest I can ever remember being mostly down to hardly riding for a month and a half due to injury and coinciding with my annual increase in Stella consumption.Posted 1 month ago
Bought another zwift set up over Christmas so will be getting in the miles on that as well as at least one proper ride a week. Also due to changing job in Nov, which means I no longer have to be up at 3:30am, I can now get back to karate a couple of evenings a week.
Chicken breast is about 150cals per 100g, and 30% protein so two of them gets you most of the way there (working on the basis that a Tesco pack of two breasts is 300g)
Thanks but I don’t eat meat. I’ve done a bit of research and looks like it isn’t too hard. Tofu, Greek yogurt, nuts and eggs are all stuff I enjoy.Posted 1 month ago
5:2 worked for me when I was 3 or 4 nights away in a hotel per week with work. Although 5:2 is ‘eat normally’ for the non-fast days, if you want to still be good you can usually find something relatively healthy, ask for extra veg instead of chips etc. so you aren’t overeating too bad. And then 2 days a week really be strict – bowl of porridge or weetabix or scrambled egg in the morning, and then ask for something like grilled chicken or fish and veggies for dinner, and just drink a lot of water in the daytime instead. Warm water for me seems to trigger the ‘I’m full’ feeling but drinking warm water is crap so I usually put a bit of stock in as well to give it some taste.Posted 1 month agonaffaMember
Hi Rob, I havent heard from you so I’ve sent another pm.
I weighed myself Wednesday and feel confident that I can lay claim to the ‘chubbiest of chub club 2020 members’.
Cut out all the crap food for the last few days and been doing 30 mins a day activity which turned into run 1 of week 1 couch to 5k today. Had to leave it until after dark to run or I’d have been in for abuse from the locals.
If anyone is interested, I’ve started an Instagram page to chart my progress and maybe inspire other fatties to get more active too. Feel free to follow ’30_mins_a_day’ on Instagram.Posted 1 month ago
