Well, well, well. Itís been a little while since I posted about my weight loss and health journey, hasnít it.
It has been 19 weeks since I started the 5:2 diet. Iíve not done the best I could but Iíve still lost about 14 lbs (1 stone or just over 6 kilos). My target remains 185 lbs (13 stone 3 lbs or about 84 kilos) but first I want to get under the magic 200 lbs mark. I reckon if I behave myself this week and next week I should be able to do it! After my second fast day of the week I weighed in a 203 lbs so it is definitely doable.
Fasting obviously went well. Iíd added a few pounds over my birthday and itís taken me a couple of weeks to knock them back off again. So onwards and upwards!
Last Sunday I also ran the British 10k London Run. It was 30 degress by the time I crossed the line in 1 hour, 2 minutes and 8 seconds. Most certainly not my best time ever (by some 4 or so minutes) but I felt good to get through it.
Tomorrow, myself and Lucy along with some 10,000(ish) other runners will be taking part in the National Lottery Olympic Park Run. Itís 5 miles around the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in East London. Itís going to be brilliant. And thankfully not as hot as last week!
