I think the leagues worked well last time round.  Maybe add a Last Man Standing (lowest scorer for that week drops out)?  They did that last season on TwoPlusTwo and it was a fun sweat.

Is this an actual automated option or is it a manual management jobbie?

Will get onto this mid week next week and start emailing out to thise interested so keep the views coming in on leagues

It's a manual thing.  I'm happy to help administer it, if there's interest.

Matt,

Thank you for the detailed reply and the ongoing support it is greatly appreciated. My daughter is a Doctor and she says exactly what you say about, weight not that important but waist is more so.

Firstly I don't see it really as being on a diet, from a food POV I have just cut out all the bad things and eating slightly smaller potions and during a meal asking myself do I need to finish this plateful or have I had sufficient. Stuff that's probably sustainable. I come form a family of skinnies and am confident that once I get rid of what is clearly excess around the midriff, providing I exercise 2/3 times a week I will be good to go long term. 

The lose a stone and 4" thing is only a target, it helps with direction and motivation so don't see it as an end, just as a datum point. I think with my ex Military back ground, upbringing and general OCD tendencies, I have an over whelming desire to complete something I set out to do.  Hence I must finish T25, even more so as my wife, my son, my DIL and one of my daughters did not get past week 2.  However I am aware that I have the one thing that stop many people completing these such programmes and that is time.

T25

To answer your question on how I get on with plank walks etc., I don't.  I do the best I can every time and  when I collapse, I take a nano second break and crack on, I clearly struggle with the press up elements and normally have to drop down to my knees to keep the ball rolling. I am aware of this weakness but am sure that when I tackle my press ups and waist exercises this will improve vastly.  I am sure that you are aware that the T25 package has a tick chart with it and after every session you can tick barely made it or nailed it (or words to this effect) of the 36 session completed to date I have ticked nailed it just the once, so I think I am being very honest as if I have to stop or collapse during the session I cannot say I nailed it Smiley  I think they need a column somewhere in the middle, which I would hit a lot

Yes I will cherry pick certain T25 sessions and maybe some Insanity too.

Funnily enough I am enjoying the Beta session more than the Alpha, they seem to be a bit more cardio and  a few more "REST" exercises throughout, so surprisingly fairly enjoyable.

Pain
I hate moaning about aches and pains it just seems a bit, bleh however,

I still ache every where but some of that comes from being a certain age.  But my knee issue is the major problem, last night it kept me awake as when I turned it really hurt when in certain positions. During T25 it is ok, although I can feel it in certain spots and I just hold back a little.

We moved house 6 months ago and did 80% of the full refurb my self, during this time I did what I think is pulled a muscle in my left bicep, it only hurts in certain positions and I was hoping that it would heal its self. Obviously that has not helped press ups and the like either, but as it has been 7 months now I feel a visting to the local witch doctor needs to be done before I head for the  "Long Term" target of 50 press ups Smiley


Keep up the good work.

Steve

Mahrez hasn't left. Vardy most certainly will play for eng under Sam. Might actually Olay a style that suits him too

Might get to see Vardy and Deeney together after all under Big Sam Smiley  I'm convinced Deeney is Vardy's perfect strike partner.

Eventually didnt play tournaments all week, my body clock from jet lag was just way way too fucked. Managed to play a full session today though.

It was kind of weird session, was 1/13 in the $2.6k on Party but basically bubbled, lost 2 crucial pot each for 3x+ average both times. I slammed my desk for the first time in a long time Cheesy

Bubbled an EPT Package in a hand where villain opened bob (3 handed) 3x, i peedl qts bb. flop QJ2ss, he check call, turn 4, he check call, river QJ24T he donk shoves, I mean I obviously have to call, but he had AK and that was that.

Came 14th in the $1k on Stars AK<JJ for 500k in std spot.

Managed to win the Crocodile on 888 for $12.6k so wte, pretty happy I guess.

Tomorrow I have to do a lot of stuff including going on the Thinking Poker podcast, fixing the new Mac I bought and some last minute shopping. Tuesday I'm taking my parents to Mallorca until Sunday (obv Cheesy) should be nice to relax, can't play from Spain ofc so wont even be on the mind.

I would hazard a guess that it depends on the gym owners and what sort of establishment they run. I've been in some gyms where this wouldn't be allowed and others where they would encourage it.
Probs more likely to be allowed to happen in an mma gym

Well they won't even have any shitty jobs when Hammond agrees to flood the country with cheap Chinese goods to save the bankers.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-36877573

So don't negotiate a free trade deal with China and the Government would have failed.

Negotiate one with China and we are bailing out the bankers.

In the doubleup world you would be criticising whatever the outcome.

Anyone with an ounce of common sense would agree that agreeing a free trade deal with one of the largest economies in the world which will continue to growth significantly compared to the developed western world is a sensible and pragmatic move.

It's not like our Country isn't already flooded with Chinese goods. May as well get the best deal we can

Two bets with firms we can get on with on the above watered down masters event.  

Djok 4/6 bald £240 win

Cilic £50 ew at 28/1 victor

http://www.sportinglife.com/bettingzone/tennis/67/10511784/cilic-can-pounce-in-toronto

Tough to disagree with anything posted here about Cilic.  Pretty solid write up.  Djok should't be 4/6 for this event given the field.  He went off 4/5 to win Wimbledon with all the faces playing.

Do you think Fedor will stick to his "walking away from poker" position?

Yeah, I'm probably the only one who does think so but he owned 25% of my company and he was doing little work and getting v good dividends and he had to leave because he wanted to get out of poker asap. I spoke to him a while ago and recently about exact business models he's looking into doing and helping with some research.

He will still come and win a bunch of high rollers, but the life of a proper poker pro is long gone for him i think.
