I'm feeling very strong and have started trying to get the weight of, my short term goal is to below 15 stone for Christmas, then having 9 months to loose the additional 2 1/2 stone.
The aim is to loose the initial weight through diet and weights, then in the new year start the cardio.
I weighed myself today and I'm currently a lean 16 st 7lbs, I feel this new way of training, hitting the weights more frequently is creating a leaner me.
The gym at La Forge enables any one staying at the holiday cottage with private pool a great workout.

New guest arrive tomorrow for a weeks stay at the holiday cottage then there is a 3 week gap before the next guest arrive on 23rd October. For the first time ever the swimming pool is remaining open throughout October and heated, why not enjoy a week or longer at La forge during October and take advantage being away from crowded tourist times.
The Brittany holiday cottage with private heated swimming pool is open all year.

As the guest left the Brittany holiday cottage with pool today I decided to let the girls have a rummage around the garden. The hens are producing 2 eggs per day with an average of 5-6 that are double in size and double yokers per week.
The turkey is also putting on weight, I'm feeding them with corn every day in addition to the chicken pellets.

Just 25 minutes away from the Brittany holiday cottage with private pool is the medieval town of Josselin with its spectacular Chateau. The holiday cottage is ideally situated to see all the delights Brittany has to offer.
September for the 4 year running is enjoying some great weather and with the pool open and heated through to October La Forge is a great place to stay.

After a week back in the UK working I returned too the Brittany holiday cottage with private pool and gym and enjoyed getting back into the gym. This video was taken on Thursday 16th September 2010 and was my last set of 8 sets finishing on 160 kg for 7 reps, I still had a little fuel in the tank but training alone I could not risk any more.
In my prime I used to do 3 reps at 220 kg, I feel I might get up to 180 or 190 kg within the next few months, if I do get up to that weight I'll get it tapped.
For guest staying at the holiday cottage the gym is at their full disposal and I am always around to provide assistance or advice.
The weather this week has been wonderful again at the Brittany holiday cottage and its great to be home again.

I started using the Udo's oil about 6 weeks ago and feel really strong again, I have changed the way I train in that I have gone back to how I trained in my twenties, hitting the gym 5 or 6 times per week on a 3 day split. In my early thirties I read that you should only train each body part once per week in order to grow, I did but in the wrong way as I lost my condition, going back to the more frequent training I feel alot leaner and have indeed lost 8lbs in the last 4 weeks.
The weights I'm currently lifting are: 160 kg squat for 8-10 reps
100 kg Bench press for 8 reps
60 kg barbell curl for 8 reps
100 kg pull downs for 7 reps
The gym at the Brittany holiday cottage with private swimming pool allows for any ability to enjoy a good work out.

On several nights they have enjoyed a swim under the stars, as the pool is heated the difference between the night air temperature and that of the water is a lot and the pool feels like a warm bath when you jump in.
The swimming pool season runs until the end of September at La Forge but this year guest have requested that the pool remain open until the end of October so why not enjoy the delights of a private heated swimming pool in October and come away for a very cheap week at just £350 for up to 6 people and enjoy the delights La Forge and Brittany have to offer.
