you fat bastard

So its Christmas and I am enjoying it.

Friday night climbers Christmas meal. Let say beer was drunk black spots from the night all in all a good one.

Saturday felt like shit. Hit the Deepot felt very hungover fat and week and started to feel a bit of a cold coming on. I cheered my self up buying some shoes I can't afford. (http://www.scarpa.co.uk/Products/Product.asp?ProductId=133)
Awesome shoes interesting colour (orange) bit in the words of Ace they fit "Like a Glove"

I then eat a pizza and met up with people in the pub feeling like shit. I had 1 pint and felt grim for it and called it a night.

Sunday woke up not feeling bad had a bacon butty and a bowl of cereal and had a session of core exercises.
I met up with a load of old mates for a meal and a few drinks to celebrate Christmas. I had a Lamb roast dinner with several pints then I kept on drinking for several more hours. The session lasted from 1.30 to 10.30with me forcing myself to leave so I would get up for work.

Monday I felt awful at work ate badly and then went to football training and struggled through.

Tuesday - Chippy day. Then had a cor session in the evening and went to the pub.

Wednesday -Cornish pasty for breakfast, Sausage, egg, chips and beans for dinner. Climbing session in the evening.

So I have had a mixed time the last 5 days of mixing very unhealthy eating and drinking with exercise. I have not checked the scales I think I will avoid looking until after Christmas.

A Heavy Weekend Ahead

I have a heavy weekend ahead of me starting tonight.
Its mad Friday inuit!!
I am off out for a curry with the climbing club followed by beer. We are off to Gurkha Talhi in Huddersfield. I have been there twice before and enjoyed the place. The company have always helped the meal. Tonight its a table full of people abusing each other hope some women turn up. This will start off light but 4 pints in it will be in full flow. I can't wait!
Saturday
in the morning I am off Christmas shopping. This is a bad thing. I hate shopping, I hate town, I really hate town near Christmas and I will be very hungover. In the afternoon I have a football match to play. Hopefully I will not be too hungover by that time.
In the evening I have Vix's pub crawl, oh dear! More abuse more drinking finishing with another hangover.
Sunday
I have a late lunch with my mates from High school so it will be Nialls Andrew Josh et al giving me more abuse. More drinking. Ending in another hangover.
Monday back in work feeling like death.
I need to try and squeeze a climbing session in somewhere Sunday morning is looking the best option.

Weighing scales you bastard

So I know I have put on weight since I got my injury but lets say I surprised what I weighed in at. I was actually quite disappointed with my self.
Last night I weighed in at 13st2lbs. This is over a stone heavier than I was in summer.
On the bright side this then motivated me to have a core session and go to football training last night. It has also motivated me to look at my diet and really try and lose weight.
There ended up being a poor turn out to training last night with 5 of the players and 1 coach turning up. So we sacked off training and had a 3 on 3 match. we played with a small pitch (tennis court size) and 2 touch.
I have not kicked a ball in months so this was actually quite good for me I got lots of touches of the ball and used to having people tackle me again.
I was surprised at how well I lasted with my fitness being so low.
I managed to keep a good tempo to my game and ran me arse off. I don't know what the score was but it was just a good laugh and good to be playing footy again.
My core session was light because I have not worked my core in a while I managed to do 135 core movements. My sessions before my injury were up to 400 movements so I can really tell the difference. I can also tell the difference when climbing. I am finding it harder to keep my feet on and suck in to the wall when climbing. I am now planning to really push on with my core and work it because it really helps your climbing.
Also I want abs of steel :P
Will keep you posted as I lose weight.

So weak

I went to Huddersfield wall last night. It still sucks.
Anyway I am back on with my training and the good news is that they have reset part of the bouldering wall.
The overhanging wall has had a reset of should I say part of a reset (work in progress). They have placed a lot of big holds near the bottom so plenty of opportunity for low warm up circuits.
I warmed up on the bouldering wall then tried a few had moves. I did not complete any of them then sadly. Tom, tom and Dan turned up so I then had a laugh with them playing about on the bouldering wall. I got in the mood for routes so convince Tom smith to belay me. There is a new 6c been put up since my injury so I thought I would have a good at that while I was still fresh. I managed to get to the hold just above the roof on my first try but my feet came off and that was it. My cores not strong enough to suck my self back in and my arms are too weak to pull me up.
I tried again I got to the top hold in the roof and tried to work out my feet. This meant I hung around too long and I eventually dropped off. I ran up the red and white (6b) next to the yellow straight after my third attempt to try and build some endurance/fitness. It Tom's turn do some route which meant I got a good rest. he tried the yellow but fell off about 3 moves before where I did. We will both get it eventually.
Next I hit the new 6a+ on the slab felt hard but I was still recovering from the routes through the roof. The last route I did was an overhanging green at 6a I fell on this which was very disappointing. I lowered to the ground and tried it again. I did it second go but felt exhausted for the steepest top section I just had to power through it.
I had another rest and tried bouldering for a bit. Tom and Dan had been playing plus one. They showed me the holds. I did it first time and added in some holds. which felt good, but I was done absolutely knackered.
The session lasted about 1hour50mins which is no where near long enough. I must improve, I need to lose weight, I need to get strong, I need to get fit. Training is definately needed.

A weekend in wales

Last weekend the proper members of the climbing club went on a trip to north Wales. Others mentioning no names came up with bullshit excuses and feebled out.
Friday night we got there late on and their was a bit of snow. We had a few drinks an interesting game of scrabble with the rules being loosely followed, then went to bed.

Saturday went to Dinas cromlech its fair to say it was cold with a bit of snow. I hit the boulders and even tried Jerrys roof. Others decided to try and do some trad on the crag. Lets just say they failed and leave it at that.
Sunday was a lot better as we went to Tremadog (it was a lot warmer there). I managed to do my first trad lead in ages. Firstly I lead oberon (every pitch) then I lead the second pitch of Cynhyrchwyr. I was pretty happy with this my shoulder held up well.
Now once all the other stuff in my life calms down some proper training can begin. Bring it on
