Default emergency training lol

typical thing has happened this evening...

I finished work too late.

i was feeling a little bit low as hadnt really eaten since 1ish... so needed some food.

got in made some meat potatoes and veg only just finished it about 10 mins ago (already too late in the day I know)

I was going to go the gym for late session 9-10 but its not worth it now, as food hasnt digested and it closes at 10 so couldnt fit in the session.

now ive probably had more calories, food intake than i need given the time...

should I attempt some excercise at home in a bit, is it worth getting up real early and going to the gym or is this too late.

ort just fook it and relax.

this is a regular occurance that really messes up my planned routine - what should I of done? made a snack after work, gone to the gym earlier?

mixture of priorities fookin me up. but I dont want to give up.

I'd take some backup food with you to work which won't go off and then have this at your normal meal time should you get stuck at work - or buy some meal replacement sachets just for this occassion. Then go training when you leave work.

If you can stick it out then go training hungry - not ideal but I am a firm believer that a crappy workout is better than a missed workout.

However - if you are trying to pack on some size - then sit back relax and stuff yourself

Seriously - if you find it hard to get to the gym, think about devising a programme that is split over 3 days. One or two of these can be done at the weekend if you have time/don't work. The other can be fitted into the week somewhere hopefully.

Also - remind me what your goals are. If you are trying to get bigger and stronger then the 3 times a week for an hour at a time with a heavy/powerlifting orientated workout will work well as you will need the rest of the week to recover. The only downside is if you train both days at the weekend(heavy training doesn't lend itself to two days consecutively.

If you are trying to get fitter and lose weight then you wil have to find more time to put in the cardio hours

Or - can you train before work?

my aims are everything with as little as possible lol.

no seriously - I am mr average size at the moment id say 5'9" - 73.5kg 32ish waist - 40-41ish chest.

but if I don't work out and leave myself to go, then my shoulders and width seems alot narrower than i'd like and it limits what clothes make me feel good and reduces my confidence immensely.
Also got a bit of a belly on me that I don't like as also means that shirts tshirts etc look poor.

I want to increase size, strength, stamina (also in running & aerobic fitness)
want to weigh a lean 80kg, be able to press 100kg (can only do about 65 now used to be 80) be able to do 3 sets of ten pull ups and run half marathon in around 1,45hr! not much to ask of myself I dont think!

I was doing the 3 times a week idea. I did a really good session on Sunday, ate almost correctly - did a good hour and half training and a 3 mile run. felt great.

needed a rest day yesterday as was tired. plan was to go today so have ate pretty good with fruit bananas etc today. was hungry and felt a bit weak on leaving work at 7:00ish tonight so aimed for loading up and going to the gym around 9 for last hour and a good session. but all too late and out of time. now I feel like i've over ate for what im doing for the rest of the evening.

i'll have to look at what I can stock up at work for times like this. its quite frequent I end up later than intended though. weekends are also bit unreliable from the food and energy side as I don't often stay at home to be able to be fully incontrol of my diet.

jesus sounds like mission impossible. its not really weight coachin I need more lifestyle lol

Everything can be worked around. If you had a really good session then the extra food and rest has probably done you good.

Think about spending time every other day making up a bulk batch of food, e.g. chicken breasts and rice which you can pack up and take with you where ever you go.

Sound like you know where you are going wrong, not eaten since 1... no wonder you are short on motivation.

Best advise you can take Brian is what Paul said about Meal Replacement Drinks. I think you should buy some due to your daily routine or even keep some Protein Bars in your draw at work or in your car for the weekends when out and about!, that way you will have good nutrition to hand when ever you need it. Then straight to the gym from work at 7, and when you get home after your work out you have time on your side to feed the body and rest.

And think more positive, and stop looking on the negative side of things. chin up mate

Maybe you could invest in a meal plan from Paul to work in with your break times at work? that way you will have something to stick to and follow instead of guessing and eating when you feel like.
