I AM OLD
I eat well and other than that > I'm not doing $HIT  ;D

ROFL :) That's the spirit!

I bought a treadmill and i've lost 7lb in 2 weeks, started including the rowing machine too so i'm in for the REcommit :)

I've never been much for breakfast, still juicing after nearly 18 months now i think.

Diet is good apart from the weekends when i hit the weed-vape, eat pringles and pizza and drink beer ;+}

Forgot to add, i bought a fitness tracker for only 30 quid and it's great, does everything some of the over-100 Fitbits do (including linking to Google maps for routes etc) :

https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B073WVF4SV/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o04_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

But it did shock me that i only did about a thousand steps a day, mostly from the home office down the stairs to the kitchen for a cuppa tea then back up! But the treadmil changed all that, a half-hour jog at 6MPH does around 5-6 thousand steps.

I posted upstream in this thread about Louise's success with the cheap-ish Fitbit Flex 2.  $60 USD.  Accuracy proved to be good on the wrist but excellent on the pants cuff.

Managed a run and a climb last week. I don't really track, but I remember those two.Mostly not much exercise because...

This week will see four ski days and we'll see what else.

Seems I pushed a bit hard and need to chill a bit due to adrenal fatigue. What a pita.

Got sick last week after my first workout but did get a dirtbike ride in on Saturday so 2 last week. Out probably most of this week, maybe next until I'm ready to hit it again.

Went skiing 4 days out of 5 last Sunday through Thursday, went bouldering on Friday, rested on the the Sabbath, hiked to a cool spot on Sunday with substantial vertical gain.

Then yesterday I ran four miles. Mile 2 was at a 7:06 pace and mile 4 was at 7:18. That's very fast for me (and that was on trail at over 6,000 feet, so I think I could go under 7:00 on a track). That inspired me to revive a 2016 goal - run a 6-min mile on an official track. Something I haven't done for many years.

I managed to get the 4/4 in last week and not trash my diet during this time of plenty, so I am happy about that.

Check in folks!

4/4 last week again.  Also, I managed all the holiday food well and weigh a pound less than I did in November.

Didn't do any last week but 2/3 this week, number 3 coming friday (treadmill and rower).

Also stopped smoking (forever!) and drinking (for at least 1 month).

I don't have any hard goals here but like to keep a basic fitness level through cycling to work most days.  Its about 5 miles each way, each taking about 25 minutes through south London's congested streets.

This year I turn 40  :o and I keep telling myself to stretch more.  That's one for the 2018 goals thread.

>> stopped smoking (forever!)

That is HUGE. Congrats!

I've lost another couple of pounds since I last said anything but haven't quite made it to my goal of 100 pounds off.

My goal is (still) to shed 100 pounds. Just a couple to go ...
