Some years back went to the local Indian to get a takeaway. Anyway sat reading the usual catering literature and a review of pubs/beer selection on offer.

Fast forward a few more years and having a weekend break at a place that has one of the pubs from the review.

Sat in the beer garden at the far end on a sunny day drinking draught cheery flavoured beer, memorable.

So, where was I. This is the pub and beer garden

No idea but them Trappist beers are great. Only started on them last year, not had many but very nice the ones I've had. Only one I've found in a supermarket is this fizz bomb

Late start tonight. I've been planning to start my new fitness regime at the start of the new month. Got my multigym set up after the nuts, bolts and washers saga. Given up trying to get a treadmill until the autumn now that it's getting warmer. Decided to weight myself for the first time in over a year. 13 stone 7 pounds!!! :o :shock: :shock:

I think that's the heaviest I've been in my life. I don't look or feel any fatter than I was a year ago. :lol: Looks like it will be less time in the beer garden from next week, less pizza and crisps, more healthy cooking and pounding the streets if I'm still capable of running for ten minutes. :lol:

Guarantee you fail! People like you are suffocating, you plan to fail because there is always a reason why you can’t. At the same time you spend your time telling people they can't because you couldn't.... for your sake, prove me wrong! Go for Derek, get fit.

I raised my desk once and put a treadmill under it. I did so after realising I thought more clearly while doing physical exercise.

I lasted 5 minutes before I put my desk back down and sold the treadmill :) Gave me terrible sea legs and a headache. I now know that I am not a chicken (They have the ability to keep their head level while running).

Edit: On reflection, perhaps that may have worked better if one had their VDU's at a distance of 10 meters...

When have I ever told someone they can't because I couldn't? That's one of my pet hates - especially with traders. :)

You're stereotyping people James. I've been a fitness fanatic for most of my life. Most of the 13.5 stone is muscle. ;) It's just since I've moved two years ago I was busy with other things, didn't get round to assembling my multigym, injured my shoulder digging the foundations for my shed. Now that I'm raring to go it's not really a challenge to me.

Running breeds success. It's hard (for a fat git like me) to begin with, but the more you train the easier it gets, the easier it gets the more you enjoy it, and the more you enjoy it the further you run. Hoping for a good summer. :D

Did you go for a run this morning ya "fat git" or do you have an "i couldn't excuse" :lol: don't sweat it though (I know you're a bit of a sweat dodger) I'm yanking your chain.

Good luck with the new regime Derek.

I know how tough it is to get back into it after being inactive for an extended period. Definitely worth while in the end though if only for the health benefit and sense of achievement if not for the six pack! :)

Last drink and pizza before my new fitness programme starts. I was looking at the film channels a few days ago to see if I can find a film to watch while I have my last meal. When I see plain boring film titles like The Dead, The Sand, The Killer Mermaid, I feel as though reading the title is as good as reading the full script - you know more or less what happens. But Nude Nuns with Big Guns really jumped off the page. I realise it's not a comedy as the title made me think but it can't be bad with a title like that. :D
