Seems as if Itsallaguess is getting fired up for the new year. I reciprocate his good wishes for 2019, although we have a long weekend to navigate before then.

Hi Snorvey,

I'm actually quite pleased with how my 2019 aims have gone to be honest, so thanks for asking.

I wanted to continue losing a bit of weight, which I've been looking to do for around 18 months now, and after weighing myself earlier today I can tell you that today I hit a new low weight, although there are the normal fluctuations of a few pound here and there over any given month. I wasn't, and am not, particularly overweight, but I was worried about that middle-aged paunch us blokes seem to get if we let things wander, and I'm keen to maintain a watchful eye on stuff like that if I can.

The other 2019 aspect I really wanted to concentrate on, at the same time as the above relatively low-level (but persistent....) weight-loss/maintenance regime, was to try to improve my upper-body strength, especially in the shoulders, which I've had a few niggles with over the years. Again, this is something I've been really happy with, and using a regular but not-too-intensive routine of dumb-bells and push-ups, I've been really happy with progress in this area. It's surprising how quickly a set of regular upper-body-strength routines can really help with strength, stamina, and muscle-tone, and the long-term issues with my shoulders have improved brilliantly, so that's definitely going to deliver another tick in the box for my 2019 goals.

Well that's timely, as I also wanted 2019 to be the year that I began to walk back on internet-based confrontation, so I do relish the opportunity to yet again test my resolve in this area......They are, of course, not my finger-nails....

How about you - are your 2019 goals panning out in ways that you're happy with?

Still farting your way up those mountains?

:O)

Joking aside - I do enjoy your trip photographs a great deal - it looks like a beautiful part of the country.

Cheers,

Itsallaguess

2019, so far, has been a success, thank you for asking.

Most of it has been posted on this site on various boards, but essentially my goals of weight loss, physical fitness and the rest have been met. Prior to that, 2018 was a dreadful year on many fronts and if there's one good thing New Year is good for, it's turning a page.

So as a measure, I wanted to climb a Munro and I managed that back in May and I had a go at a second, only to be thwarted by high winds. I might even get another Munro attempt in before the end of the year - this bugger in fact.

- a real Cairngorm! That's very much weather dependent though.

I should actually point out that I'm not really a climber (a fair weather hill climber at best maybe), I just find them excellent fitness markers....and when you do get to the top, there's generally a feeling of peace and tranquillity as well as satisfaction that's difficult to find anywhere else

Joking aside - I do enjoy your trip photographs a great deal - it looks like a beautiful part of the country.

Cheers.

We'll do a hill sometime if your up for it.

I keep meaning to do something about that middle age (well - 75 plus) spread, but so far it has defeated me. Arms and shoulders get lots of exercise rowing the boat up and down the loch - I have not yet succumbed to using an electric outboard motor. But I admit, I have succumbed to using a bike with an electric motor - but that still involves a lot of pedalling. And I'm still climbing up to hills lochs on fishing holidays in Assynt.
But in spite of all of this I have a definite paunch - and I don't think I over-eat. Any suggestions - short of starvation?
Bad tempered angry persons are usually slim, and contented persons are often on the plump side. So I'm getting thoroughly bad tempered by responding to Polite Discussions. Maybe that will help.

Sadly....I have found that it is impossible to exercise away a belly. Unless you are on a marathon or Tour de France type training regime.

The only option is to cut back on calories, which is a total bummer.

I've got to agree with that. If it's not a universal fact, then I can only add that it's certainly been the case with me too...

I make sure not to have as many large evening meals as I used to some years ago, and I do think that's probably made the biggest difference to my weight.

To be honest, I didn't really expect additional exercise to show any huge benefit regarding weight-control in itself, but I do strongly think that a certain mindset is the single most important aspect to this issue, at least for me, and I find that I tend to eat much healthier when I maintain a consistent exercise routine, so hitting the problem from each direction separately seems to strongly enhance my desire to maintain a good approach to both collectively, I find...

Cheers,

Itsallaguess
