Reviving this old thread as I'm starting again....as heavier than I was on 2017 but only by 2 pounds....but much of the small amount of muscle has slowly turned into more fat.

From the little games I played I noticed how unfit I was, from being 23 yoa bowling 15 overs straight to 8 overs at 30 yoa and then not being able to chase after a ball I found quite depressing.

Whilst this thread only lasted 5 months...I would be interested to know if people carried it on or looking to start again.

If anyone is interested I thought I could start a WhatsApp group as I found that by not looking at the thread I didn't have to keep up, I also don't live that local to mates that are sporty which leaves me with the pub guys.....when daily motivation, chatting etc. would be a better option (I've been working from home since March and the only exercise I have done is cricket, not even netted once)

While I have no background in using gyms, fitness plans or the like, just trying to find something that get me fitter without me hating it. Will be starting of cycling with some basic sit-ups, press ups, squats and plenty of walking. Food wise, I cook healthy already (Mrs is Veggie so therefore I am 90% of the time), just cutting portion size, adding juicing, cutting out takeaways and booze.

My 31st tomorrow so I am giving a health kick as a gift to myself....as they all say....you are the only one stopping yourself.

DM me if interested.

End of every season I tell myself I'll sort out my fitness for next year, interested to hear how you get on and what works for you.

Walking wise, if you haven't already I'd massively recommend picking up some type of fitness tracker (Fitbit, etc) to count the steps. Really helped me to have that constant reminder.

@Jimbo found my old Garmin doing a clear out so will be using that for the steps.

Anything moving is good.

You need a bit of discipline with your diet though or you'll struggle.

I've kept up the fitness regime. Go to the gym 3 times a week, have a home gym i use also along with thai boxing twice a week, running etc.

Only thing that keeps me sane  :D

Good luck mate! I'm sure you know but for weight loss just keep in mind veggie doesn't always mean 'healthier' in terms of calories etc. I'm veggie but find a lot of veggie products still have a high calorie content or fat content. Obviously cooking from scratch with veggies is different, but I see a lot of people thinking meat free is 'healthier' in terms of fat loss, but this isn't always the case.

However the cutting out booze and takeaways will definitely help if you monitor the rest of your diet.

I've started something of a health kick after putting on a further 2 stone in lockdown.

Pretty depressing when you can't run a three without feeling sick and cant walk for 2 days after a game at the age of 23!

About 6lbs down in 2/3 weeks so far
