    FB-ATB I take a couple of electrolyte tablets a day and add a pinch of salt to my lemon and ginger tea to help with the thick head. Also drink plenty of fluids, I have a serious sparkly water habit!

    Don’t over do the salt though unless you want (or need before weigh-in 😉 ) disaster pants.

    Even on just a reduced calorie diet (not keto) you’re…[Read more]

    Lost 5.8 pound, so very happy with that! 1900-2000 cals, low carb (50-70g carbs) and some turbo and walks. Really my first proper week so obviously a lot of water loss.

    Hoping the gales here subside enough for a couple of hours on Sunday to get a real ride in. Force 8-9 today and inspecting something on the coast at work was a bit stingy with…[Read more]

    Had a very well behaved low carb week with some walking and turbo and expecting good news tomorrow 🤞

  • longdog replied to the topic Chub Club 2020 in the forum Chat Forum 1 week ago

    Blimey after a relaxing low carb day at home I had a dump and reweighed myself just now… 2lb loss over night!

  • longdog replied to the topic Chub Club 2020 in the forum Chat Forum 1 week ago

    Well instead of 2lb down I’m 0.2lb down 😂

    Home now anyway so I can crack on with no excuses. Exercise will be largely turbo and real riding whenever there’s a break in the gales, plus some walking. The plan diet wise is lower carb, no sugar no grain.

    Crap week for me, but I’ll weigh in the morning.

    The short story is an unplanned week in an apartment in Aberdeen on my own. Ate a fair bit of takeaway crap, but I did do about 60km of walking.

    Weigh in tomorrow then take two…

  • I have a blackview 5800. 5800mah battery, waterproof, drop proof.

    Lasts great biking and hiking with mapping and wahoo fitness app or strava running and taking photos.

    Yeh I think I’ll atleast need to be intermittent fasting while away. Luckily drink isn’t an issue, but access to takeaways is. I’m a sucker for a kebab or a burger even sober 😂

    Hopefully not going to fall at the first hurdle, but now unexpectedly away in a hotel 3 days this week before a long awaited hospital appointment 😖

    No cycling available, so will just have to walk as much as my knee will allow and try not to eat too much or any junk.

  • longdog replied to the topic Chub Club 2020 in the forum Chat Forum 2 weeks ago

    Oh bugger I surely need new scales or a battery, that can’t be right 😤
    Oh well, onwards and downwards, I hope!

    Cheers got the email 👍 Moment of truth/dread in the morning 😱

  • HHH just use white chalk here.

  • longdog replied to the topic Chub Club 2020 in the forum Chat Forum 2 weeks ago

    Dagnamit! Forgot it was today (I blame the lack of email 😉) so have already drank a gallon of tea 😤 Will weigh tomorrow!

  • Both me an my wife have both found chiropractors useful. I had a really bad back issue years ago that was lumbar factet joint and sj joint with some oa present (from xrays). GP was just anti inflammatories. Chiro gave me a large degree of instant relief and then slow improvement over a couple of months.

    Despite the cost I’d happily go back. GP is…[Read more]

  • longdog replied to the topic walking to work. ( 5 miles). in the forum Bike Forum 1 month ago

    I’d say 90mins. I’ve been thinking similar, though getting the bus one way, but it’s be 10km on roadsides for me with it all up hill until half way and I’d allow 2 hours.

    I figured less faff at either end than cycling, but cycling only takes 30min and nearly half I can freewheel or soft pedal.

    Not sure how my metal knee will take it as a…[Read more]

    Me and the wife haven’t drank for years so it’s more an issue for others who seem offended that a cuppa or soft drink is fine for us.

    Not a fan alcohol free wines and beers, usually just have Sparkly water or a coke.

    All the best for it

    PM’d. 20kg to loose after knee replacement and then enforced rest for a while due to heart issues. Thankfully the fitness is now on the way back up, but the blubber needs to take a serious dive.

    Emotional eating with all the health carry-ons over 2 years has been my downfall, plus it seems to be in my nature to love the shittiest food going. My…[Read more]

  • My brother was on the subs for (I think 11 years) out of Faslane. Many antics, drunkeness, coffins dreams, and harsh conditions, but obviously made some great mates for life. He did say if you’re on the subs you either become an alcoholic or fitness addict.He had some great experiences despite extended lengths of time under the sea with no idea…[Read more]
