Well done with your nutrition intake over the Chinese New Year.

Thanks Craig. You're certainly an inspiration for my challenge with what you have achieved!

A solid effort today. Workout wise I could not get to the gym as had to prepare my apartment for the visit of my in laws, but no problem, I worked out at home with an HWR workout. Was a great workout. Feeling strong on the push ups and squats. It was the 19 minute 20-10 workout.

Nutrition was good.

Breakfast ... Oats, protein, blueberries, strawberries, some walnuts and a bit of peanut butter
Snack ... Apple and almonds
Lunch ... Leftover home made chicken and bean soup. Had this with some romaine lettuce.
Afternoon ... Had a protein shake, with greens powder in it plus a banana
Dinner (after workout) .... Roast chicken, broccoli, a couple of new potatoes, a small amount of guacamole and tomato salsa


Tomorrow I will be able to get into the gym in the afternoon and do workout A, the first workout of the final 3 before I move up to the next level. That may be mid way through next week though as I am going on holiday for 5 days on Thursday to a beach destination in Thailand as we have some public holidays for Chinese New Year.

Can't wait but I don't think my first hotel has a gym so I will do HWR workouts. Second place definitely does so will finish up TT intermediate there.

Aside from my TT workouts it should be a very active trip. Planning walks along the beach in the morning, a lot of swimming and some snorkelling and scuba diving.

I love the HWR workouts. They're a good "go to" when short on time. You really stuck the nutrition the other day despite the celebration - kudos to you. Keep it up - you're doing great!

Default Holidays

Hi Tom - you are tracking along nicely by the looks of things.

Social and / or work functions are tough. I don't know about you, but I get given a hard time when I choose to refrain from the drinks / eats. At the last party I went to I kept a full drink in my hand as a diversion tactic. Think it worked! And the office is another matter - all of my Egyptian colleagues are so lovely and always offer me yummy treats. Sigh.

I'm really enjoying the combination of TT2.0 and HWR. The advanced series in TT2.0 was quite a step up from intermediate, but I can feel the improvement in my strength and overall fitness even after the 2nd week.

I'm travelling back to Aus next week so that will be my big test. HWR will be my backup if I can't get to the gym while I'm away. And the long plane ride will be a great opportunity to fast!

A beach holiday in Thailand sounds just awful! Kidding (obviously). Hope you have an fantastic break.

Thanks Heather!

I can definitely improve with my consistency and I'm trying to make progress every week towards cutting down on my non compliance to my plan.

My aim as I go through the weeks is to see my fitness and conditioning and hence calories burned will go up as I work through the workouts, combined with gradually improving compliance.

I'm looking to get to the 90/10 compliance ratio for long term from about 80 per cent at the moment.

Thanks Shona. I've definitely found it a challenge with the social occasions too! What I'm trying to do is make better choices, and factor them into reward/cheat meals. I've reduced my alcohol intake massively over the past months which helps.

I'm doing less socialising now too with my wife being pregnant so this is really an ideal time for me to reach my goals.

Good luck back in Aus. I definitely find it a big struggle when I go back to the UK and there's friends and family to catch up with. The weather should be good I'm guessing so you'd have a lot of opportunity to be active.

Avoiding the plane food is a good idea. I always feel sick if I eat it. I've got a long flight to LA next month myself - not sure I'll fast but will pack healthy food choices and snacks to keep me going.

I'm really looking forward to progressing to TT 2k3. I'm doing the same combo as you.

I forgot to add rock climbing into the activity plan. The place I'm going is famous for it. I hate heights but planning to give it a go anyway.

I love climbing and have only been indoor, but I would expect outdoor to be even more awesome. There's no place around here to do it - indoors or outdoors. Definitely one thing I miss from the more progressive area I lived in previously (11 years ago now) where at least you could get into an indoor gym. I'm somewhat afraid of heights, but climbing didn't get to me. I hope you enjoy it!
