Ultimate Hubber

Ultimate Hubber (6/6)

  1. Only person who can make this call is you and Reinet... but from my side, I don't think spending your last days in a hospital bed is what you're all about. Suck every last ounce out of life in your remaining days - do not go quietly into that good night.
  2. Legend... let's get designing you some awesome custom kit - will make sure it all gets sponsored
  3. I'm in for R500 as well... hopefully more if I can. Cois, I have no words for you, but can only seriously say you are an absolute f#cking champion. Endless respect
  4. Bit late to the party, not been on in a while, but just made the deposit as promised... hope it helps in some little way Cois. Keep fighting the good fight - look forward to that post-ride beer/coffee one day!
  5. Main reason I pop onto bikehub these days is to check in on you Cois... I don't think you know what sort of an inspiration you are to many people you don't even know. It's tough times out there in general, and a lot of people are struggling a bit more than they are used to, but seeing your fight and determination puts it all in perspective. Thank you for that - you've lit a fire in me personally that I know is already moving me in a very positive direction. Great to see that pic of you looking so strong - you're a bloody Yster man. Keep up the good fight! And on the crowd funding, for whatever solution you find or need to ease your mobility issues - I'm in for R1500 Just let me know where and when Thank you.
  6. Going to be a very interesting Euros... lots of good teams, pretty wide open in my books. A lot will depend on which team gels during these few weeks. Looking forward to what I am sure will be some cracking games. France vs Germany already in the first round! Bring it on
  7. I'll definitely tune in for this! Magical man
  8. Strongs to you Cois! We're all rooting for you! Hope it's nothing too major - keep us in the loop!
  9. From the look of things, I am just shifting fat at the moment - certainly no obvious sign of muscle loss or drop-off in physical performance. My little bit of reading on this also suggests as much. I guess it will become a bit of a balancing act when I up the training, but I'm pretty confident I will get it right. I will not be shy to eat properly post exercise to ensure my recovery - or even during exercise to make sure I am getting in a good session. I will probably just manage the training times to fit my fasting where I can. But weekends which are my main training times in general... I'm not strict on my fast at all. I think that is another thing I enjoy about this - I eat without feeling guilty... even if sometimes I get it a bit wrong, or have a few too many pizzas in a week - the few bad days are far outnumbered by the good days and offset them quite easily, keeping that downward trend going. Honestly, this past weekend was a proper test on how far I could push beating my midweek losses - I had three birthday parties, had a good time, had beers, pizza, ate cake etc By Tues I was already back down lower than what I weighed on Friday.
  10. I'm not training much, mainly just focused on the weight loss for now... Activity wise, mainly just 1.5hours of squash on a Friday and then the odd run on weekends where I don't follow OMAD strictly at all - all depends on what I am up to with the kids etc But certainly a lot busier on weekends than during the week where I am at my desk 90% of the time. The Friday squash works out quite fine, even if I have been fasting for nearly 20 hours by then... I have moments when I'm a bit pap, depending on how hard the game is, but generally I can hold a solid energy level. I do though eat something for recovery as soon as I get home after... I will likely do much of my training in the evenings (which during the week is what I normally do anyway) as I've found my recovery is severely compromised if I don't eat after exercising in a fasted state. I did a long midday run fasted on a public holiday, didn't take anything after and held my fast til dinner time, and despite cruising the run comfortably... my muscles took a good three days to come right. It was very obviously noticeable that it wasn't a good idea for heading forward. So I will break my fast post exercise when required. I also ran Oxpecker with my wife a couple weekends back, ate my three meals a day, felt great, cruised through the weekend and slotted straight back into OMAD on the Monday - no real setback all. This is one of the reasons I am really loving it. It's robust. I have thought about how it might work training in the morning, and I might well in that case make breakfast my meal for the day, but how well that might work, I am not sure...
  11. I'll be under 90kgs in the next few days... still enjoying the OMAD, and probably more than anything, the fact that it's easy to jump in and out of as required or life dictates... weekends I'm generally only skipping breakfast. Week days I generally hold it well and only eat dinner... 8kgs off in just over two months since I switched to OMAD... 5kgs to go to my goal weight Winter generally not the best time for weight loss, but I'm focused to getting this over the line asap
  12. Just a small follow up... Got a call from Ricky last week and everything is going really well with the Nyathi clan. Ricky is loving his bike and putting in many good miles - even riding socially when he can. Queen has also found work, so things certainly on the up for them. They've been really busy, but just wanted tore-iterate their thanks to us all. Was really great to hear from them I must say. We did a really good thing here as a community - real change, for real people, in the most challenging of times.
