Re: Darcy's Fitness and Weight Management Club

Hello John ;)?


Half an hour on a static bike is like brisk walking for an hour benefit wise, if you've access to one it saves time and without fear of accident or fine you can always read the paper, watch the telly or your phone while doing it to make the time fly ;)?

You are! It's not how heavy it is that's important, it's how it feels ;)?

Re: Darcy's Fitness and Weight Management Club

Nothing much to report here, not bothering weighing that often, it takes a lot longer to put two pound of meat on than it does to lose two pound of fat. Just been to the gym (first in again) to do my legs, those knee braces really help, I had to up the weight again on the leg press to 160kg and stil...

Oh I do like a giggle Becerrea, at school our drama teacher arranged for us to do a Christmas show at the old folks home in town one year and talked me into doing a stand up comedy routine, nobody laughed at my jokes but they all pissed themselves :D

Re: The Joke Page

I called the doctor's surgery this morning.

"I need to make an appointment for as soon as possible," I said, "Everything in my right ear is echoing."

"Ok," she said, "How does tomorrow sound?"

I said, "Tomorrow, orrow, orrow, orrow"

Re: Stopping Smoking

You've done very well BB ;)? That's not a lot of smoking in nine months, I guess it's like the drink really when we have to analyze the trigger moments to try to learn what pulled that trigger and see if we can change or at least be aware of the things that caused it. As yet I haven't relapsed back ...

Re: Stopping Smoking

It truly is the less of the evils and in my experience works very well.

Here's an hours walk I did recently at a moderate brisk pace of around 3.75mph average, 444 calories burned ;)? 2020-09-07.png If you have a cheap set of ear buds to plug in your phone you can take your mind off it by listening to some fave tunes, a podcast or even a talking book, it works wonders f...

Re: Stopping Smoking

I completely understand that, I was doing grand nic free using blanco vape as a placebo until the shit hit the fan after about two months.


Go for it mate, it's doable, try zero nic vape for a while till the novelty wears off and then sack the lot ;)?

Re: Darcy's Fitness and Weight Management Club

Chirpy, my advice for what it's worth would be to get in the habit of reading the labels to get an idea of how much you ae eating, then get into the habit of going for a walk for half an hour a day, aim to eat 1700 calories per day (that's a 300 deficit for a female for starters without too much pai...

Re: Stopping Smoking

So technically I am smoke and vape free, but I am using the nicotine spray daily. I’ve decided I want to concentrate on my recovery and the withdrawal from and cravings for nicotine are messing with my head and I don’t need that kind of distraction at the moment. The nicotine spray doesn’t seem to ...

Re: Darcy's Fitness and Weight Management Club

This going to the gym for about 45 minutes in the morning and then off to work is doing the job, if things carry on as they are I don't think I'll bother walking this winter! ;)?

Re: Darcy's Fitness and Weight Management Club

I lost a little over 12 kilo's of fat in about 7 months this year in Primark 10 quid stretch jeans, a Clash T shirt and cheap footwear, that's the beauty of walking, wear what you want, when you want and where you want. Hippocrates (c. 460 – c. 370 BC), was a Greek physician who is often referred to...

Re: Darcy's Fitness and Weight Management Club

I never really had a sweet tooth so I can't empathize with the comedown, although most mention it, OH suffers from it. Even as a kid when we used to wait for the shop to open so they could buy a bag of penny sweets it was the smell of warm bread rolls being delivered that turned me on, must have loo...
