Anybody want my spreadsheet for proteins and best value for purchasing them? (not protein powder, but actual food)
need to lose weight badly, put on about a stone over the summer (planned to do a lot of cycle trips etc, but a car accident/bodged knee put an end to that), any tips for weight loss/building up exercise gradually? my knee is almost back to normal but still has some internal bruising.
If you've got a poor knee then I would certainly stay away from running for the time being. Stick to low impact exercises like swimming, cycling, cross-trainer etc. Start off slow and just build up. Anything from 30 - 60 minutes 3-5 times per week should be plenty to help burn some decent calories. Also make little bits of effort throughout the day that you would usually avoid i.e. stairs instead of lift, go for a random walk etc. It will all add up
Diet wise just be sensible. Don't stick to some crazy low calorie 6 week diet because you will be miserable during and probably just gain the weight again afterwards. Eat little and often, plenty of veg and fruit, high protein foods etc. If you want to keep track of all your macros (macro nutrients i.,e. fats, protein, carbs) then download one of the apps and get logging.
My knee is getting a lot better, i had physio this morning and i was able to squat down on my one bad leg without any pain, but agian becuase the bruising hasnt gone down, it still hurts when it has pressure (it was a bad idea to get deep into a desk to reach the back of a pc on my knees the other day), but the ligament itself is a lot better, so i should be able to start within the next week or so.
Mid-week update, how y'all folks getting on?
tired from workout that work gave me (shifting 50 PCs down 2 flights of stairs was not fun) then shifting it from the ground floor to the van for collection.
Add in that last night I did some swimming and weights, and this morning I did an hour in the gym doing cardio...I am bushwacked!
Well poopy, haven't been in about a week and a half need to get back into it hopefully will go tonight to the gym.
OMG hope I get to hit the weights today in my PT session. Not done any real exercise since Tough Mudder!! #BOSH
Just started weight watchers becuase we had tried soooo much other stuff that didn't work, so thought it was time to invest money into our health.
Lost 8 pounds in 2 weeks (the first 2 weeks) just by eating what they said, but now not lost anything this week, so its time to pickup the pace and do some exercise, something which I really struggle to motivate myself to do, any useful tips for motivation? except the obivous - you'll lose weight.
Find a hot personal trainer... motivates me
