Hi Im Martin. Ive always been a bigger built guy from young, playing competitive sports like Rugby, Cricket,Kickboxing, swimming,running and doing weight training.A few years back i had a serious back injury during Kickboxing training.I Injured my Lower Lumbar region.I spent probably close to a month on my back and still now and then tweak the nerve/muscle while training.As the years went by ive pulled my calf muscle as well as had plenty of back spasms. My aim is to strengthen my Core and loose weight and add a little muscle while maintaining a healthy diet.On the 30 May 2011 i was able to stop smoking.I weighed 104KG However since then ive added roughly 10% weight and weighed the heaviest ive ever been.Im now on my journey back to health. ( previously used Yourtraining.com Start Weight - 104 KG 16 / 08 / 2009 117kg as at 3 /1/2012. Basically i try to eat 5-6 smaller meals a day and cut down on the carbs.I unfortunately do have a weakness for chocolate, sweets and soda's(Coke Zero/Pepsi max)but im trying to cut down :)

my goals reached:

1. 3/5/2012 - 5kg loss - weight 109.9kg ( 7weeks)

and crashed...

Starting again 7//01/2013 at 111.6 kg hoping to get to the magic 100!

Excuses
I dont think its the fear of failing that makes me make excuses not to excercise and eat unhealthy.To me its more the effort involved to live a healthy lifestyle. I for one get caught in the rat race of life with work and home pressure and responsibilities often neglecting my diet and fitness opting rather for convenience and time to laze around.Instant gratification!Sometimes when you see how far you have to go its off putting!

Getting a balace is key for me.No more lame excuses!

Length of time you exercise...
Interesting! But for me training and loseing weight is about the intensity you train at! You should be able to loose more weight in a 20 minute hard workout than a slow 40 min jog. I Think the study is a little misleading as a slow 20 min cycle certainly wont be beter than a slow 40 min cycle! Lucky for me i cant run for 60min lol so 30 minutes suits me fine xx.
