When I'm doing the above program I average a diet of 11000kj a week and still lose weight =/

Is that meant to be KJ per "week" or day?

Oh. A day. ;)

Sounds like your doing great then, you must be very fit and buff.

I wouldn't go that far. I'm fit enough, but muscle mass has been slow going since I dislocated my shoulder and had to slow everything down just as I reached my peak form. That was a blow to everything after I'd been working so damn hard to reach my goals.

Still have some tyre around my stomach which is slowly going, that's what my HIIT weeks are for though. I swear underneath this last layer of fat there is a cast member of 300 waiting to be unleashed, abs are quite solid. Hoping to give Ret's a run for his money :P

I'm quite possibly the laziest dude that's in shape that I know.

I don't count calories. I eat 5-6x a day, especially when I run.

I don't design workouts for myself. Whatever feels right on a particular day based on soreness level of certain muscles.

I don't record my data. Now that I've got fitocracy it kind of changed but I don't refer back to it. I just go to max.

I think once I get ontop of shit I'll get in better shape. The only thing that saves me is being in the gym everyday.

ive been running a far bit lately, really enjoying it too for a chance. soo glad ive dropped heaps of weight as this used to hurt my legs too much. Im finding myself really bored at home, one of the girls that live here gives me bad vibes all the time and so i either head to the gym or go for a run to escape it. also helps clear my mind. also starting to notice im getting depressed again even with all the exercise and such.

OUCH! That would have been horrible. Sounds like your back on track now, well done!

That sounds very similar to me.
I do record body measurements though. From January to October last year, I dropped a total of 17kg. It was great to show clients that it can be done, without having having to over train or go on extreme diets. In my opinion if you are a Personal trainer you should be fit, healthy and looking good(not too skinny though).

I'm similar to that, it's all about listening to what your body wants. I'm hungry, I'm sore, I don't feel like it today. I can still out run most people I know.

Maybe the trick is not to change the message you are sending to your body, but to change the message your body is sending to you. If you don't eat breakfast because it makes you feel sick, eat just a little bit for breakfast and ease your self into it. If you don't feel motivated to go for that run today, tell us all here about it then you might feel a more motivated to go for one tomorrow. Then when you start getting fit your body will not want to eat the ridiculous amounts of junk food you do now or slack all the time, you will want to do these things because they make you feel good.

Oh hey Cailo, how is your progress coming along now?


Just weighed my self and came in at 60.8Kgs which is about the heaviest I've ever been I think.

Took a day off today, I guess I'm a little tired after my work days on Friday / Saturday. I did dumbbells and pushups about 5 times a few days ago and my shoulder muscles are a little sore from it. I'm sprinkling a bit of protein powder on my cereal each morning and I'm going for runs most days.

Hopefully I'll see those scales hit up to 61kgs soon enough but I have to keep at it.

Be sure to stretch properly and build up those muscles around the shoulder. Rotator cuff injuries suck and can happen with little to no warning other than soreness in the shoulder after a chest workout. Mine still persists, even though it's so minor I can barely feel it. I can't wait for that shit to be gone so I can climb without worry, or dance around exercises because I don't want to inflame it.

If have some exercises and stretches I do 3x a week to build strength if you're interested. After my injury, I've been very vocal to my friends about properly stretching and working their shoulders because it blows big time to have such a minor injury that stops you from doing any sort of upper body activity.

Also, I fucking crushed my 2 mile (3.2km) run today. It's kind of a short run for me but I pushed pretty hard. Beat my previous time (for 2mile) by 4 minutes but unfortunately it got dark and got scared for my life so I stopped at the end of my second circuit. One downside to running in the backstreet mountains by my house.

Hmm, might as well post here instead of PM rets since an overall opinion might be better. (3 opinions are better then 1 rets :D).

So anyways I want to get back down to around 60kg toned again, I was 71kg around October and decided I needed to get back in shape and dropped down to 65kg. I managed this in 4 weeks just by daily running to and from the station with a change of meal intake (Could eat like a horse).

Just wondering what exercises should I be doing to tone back up considering I have had 10 dislocations in my right shoulder alone (almost 0 ligament left in the joint with 13% bone loss). I don't want the exercises to strain my shoulders too much while toning up my mid to upper body.

I have had knee injuries in the past from soccer, which limits the length I can run before the actual pain becomes excruciating.

Note: I get my shoulder reconstruction around mid this year, yay!

I wish I was as fit as I was back in the Army, man I would walk 6 k's, then run 3 k's, then come home and do 128 sit ups and 128 pushups, even my craps had muscles, bah all history now.

here is a good shoulder exercise I do to warm up before throwing or doing intense shoulder work outs.
