    2019 weight loss and fitness accountability club

    Now this is where it gets into areas I don't understand. Is calories bad? I know saturated fat, sugar, salt are all bad. However some fats are good. If a small bowl of blanched peanuts/raisins is worse than a cake, biscuits or crisps then I'm barking up the wrong tree. Just need to work out...

    Newbie Owner QP GTS

    Best not to think of the numbers. Think of the pleasure and enjoyment instead. Far outweighs the numbers [emoji6]

    Newbie Owner QP GTS

    Well done...great car. I really wanted a QP GTS but the numbers didn't work for me today which is the main reason I went XJ. Having owned and lived with both they have very similar DNA and characteristics. Just do things very slightly different. Certainly from the same stable of ideals. Both...

    Keep it up Newton and Dan...great work. Any move in the right direction even by 1% is a win. Try not to want too much too quick. It is about long lasting results and changes. One thing Newton I have done as I'm similar in that I struggle to pass the fridge or kitchen without snacking is...

    2019 weight loss and fitness accountability club

    Haven't been weighing myself much....well...at all! Started at 83kg above and this morning 79.7kg. Could be a bit of water/food difference. I suspect much has been down to cutting out 90% of biscuits, cakes, crisps and all the bad snacks. I have cut pretty much all of these out only allowing a...

    Just bonkers

    Just caught up with this thread! Indeed bonkers. Is not life hard and complex enough without introducing more complexity? I'm very much for trying to make things simpler/eaiser and try to do this in my day to day work which is a challenge in such a technical world. Not harder and more complex...

    Stupid Tacx heart rate monitor doesn't have a two piece strap with fastener. Just one piece strap you have to step in to or stuff over your head. Are they all like that? Might need to cut it in 2 and add some velcro fastener.

    ADVICE & OPINIONS - BUY A QP OR ANOTHER EXEC/SPORTS SALOON/HATCH?

    Do you get any warning signs or symptoms before it dies? Is there a better or upgraded part? Thanks for all the engine spec detail. Very interesting. It certainly works as to see 30mpg and above on a car like this is pretty amazing. Never seen it on any other car at this power.

    ADVICE & OPINIONS - BUY A QP OR ANOTHER EXEC/SPORTS SALOON/HATCH?

    Agreed [emoji6] I was very pleasantly surprised as after the QP I thought it would be quite muted. In fact stock it has more volume that a QP. It is also a very pleasant tone. Gearbox seems tons quicker to change than the QP and both 6 speed ZF's. I guess the TCU or software must be different...

    ADVICE & OPINIONS - BUY A QP OR ANOTHER EXEC/SPORTS SALOON/HATCH?

    Indeed......but surely that is the only way forward isn't it?! It has a little supercharger as well so makes 510PS therefore runs quite well ;)

    ADVICE & OPINIONS - BUY A QP OR ANOTHER EXEC/SPORTS SALOON/HATCH?

    Bought it off Adam Weaver, Team Principal of the PowerMaxed BTTC Racing Team. Lovely guy and showed me all around his units up there. Should have taken some pics. Plenty of interesting rally, rallycross and other types of race cars being built, prepared and modified. There was a rally Fiesta...
