I am trying to cut the flab man. My "before" pictures are just too shameful to show right now - my diet has been crap since I've been ill and since my relationship break-up, and I've been depressed a long time before that and not training... So my body has gone to shit. But hopefully in a few weeks I will have made enough progress to reveal why I have been cutting back on food!

I'm sure you'll progress quite nicely!

I'm a bit bashful about the before photos too but I'm almost ready.....

Best of luck man!!!

Going into full workout mode was cool, but I was smashed yesterday. I kept it up as long as I could, but my muscles just couldn't do what I wanted, so I couldn't complete the guidelines. I still ate sensibly. Today is shoulders, I'll see what I can do - I am still sore in my chest from monday which might hinder me a little

Okay, been working out on and off, diet has also been on and off. But today was a good day! Here is a photo of some progress: (still want to hide my mid section, it's not good... hopefully I will beat it and be proud of it again like I used to)

Still lifting on and off, now lifting 20kg for bicep curl, which was as much as I ever lifted before so I am happy with that. Here is a vid of me beating up the slam man with a stick:

Been depressed this week, haven't got anything done, and been eating crap. But today I am going to resolve all that, and get back to it, not going to eat any more crap. Will be going skating this afternoon. Get it together!

New motivation: my brother is getting married tomorrow, so I tried on some trousers that I bought a few years ago, and they don't fit me anymore because I've put on weight (fat). That's a shocker, I didn't realise I had put that much on... so that's given me a mental kick up the arse I think.

Okay, went to my gym today, joined that motherfucker again for a year. I did 2 hours on the bike, new personal best. Also just did a general upperbody work out to get me back in the swing of things, I feel rededicated. The gym moved to a new location, it's really awesome, I might take some photos to share because it's so good in there, much better than the gym you go to.

(^-^) Have you tried DDR / Stepmania ?

It’s bouncy, fun, and just the thing for toning up your lower body and refining your torso. It’s pretty cool too, as it hones up your co-ordination and sense of rhythm (always good down the disco for picking up the girls ;) *bonus !*) and can be a great emotional pick-me up to shake off those feelings of depression.

:D I totally recommend it !
