Two things struck me this week.
Firstly, a good friend lost her uncle, largely unexpectedly, in horrible circumstances. Having gone through similar with mum, I can ap... Read more
THE PAST WEEK - GOOD AND BAD.
An interesting, insightful week....
A tough week in work, lots of change, which affects a person mentally. Workload each day has reduced, but had a l... Read more
THE HUMAN BODY IS WEIRD.... AND SOMETIMES GOOD!
5 days hovering above 285 lbs, then whoosh!!!!
God knows why - kcalories were good, but not drastically cut. I walked 3.5miles to work instead of bike... Read more
Momentum, a little bit at least!
NOT TOO BAD!
Early hours of Sunday morning, weekend's over.... Well, this weekend I've not done EVERYTHING I set out to do, but it's certainly not a weekend of Zero Days. :)

Now that's better!
Down about 4 lbs since Saturday, by not eating mindlessly the way I have been for too long.
Listened to my body today, decided to stay in bed longer instead of going in for overtime today. Feeling under it, and feet/legs/throat sore. Bit ... Read more
HOLY HELL, I'M FAILING.
Gonna be brutally honest. I'm up to 290.4lbs.
This is not how it should be. I started at 330lbs, and my next target was 276lbs. Instead i've been going backward,... Read more
PUT ON 8 LBS OVER THE WEEKEND, ALMOST LOST IT ALL DUE TO SICKNESS IN ONE DAY!
Goes to show you how much of short-term weight change is liquid (water and glycogen).
By last Wednesday, it was clear my boots were being eroded by my increased walking... Read more
* REFEED DAY! *
Feet sore, so only did 16'000 stps today. First two days this week were 30k and 33k steps. Bottom of boots is getting to the ruined stage already. Need new boots now, which means i'll probably replace them in December. Last pair were ridicul... Read more
WHICH IS MORE IDEAL: A PERFECT DIET, OR A DIET THAT'S GOOD ENOUGH?
Now, let's rephrase the question - which is WISER?
What has gone before
I've tried my fair share of eating regimes. Paleo, Primal, Low Fat, Low carb, various forms of Intermittent Fasting, Atkins, Zone, Slimming World and so on.

WHAT IF YOU COULD REWIND PARTS OF YOUR LIFE TO DO OVER? WHAT IF THAT ALREADY HAPPENS?
Each morning when you wake up, what possible ways could that day have played out previously, if it had already happened multiple times?
Did you choose to lie in ... Read more
** 163'000 STEPS LAST WEEK. :) **
Wanted to break 100'000 steps, ended up going way beyond that. 30k steps for the day is the most I've done in months. Also slept like a log afterwards. I think 150'000 steps a week is a bit more realistic now. :)

Step target? DESTROYED.
Had planned for 100'000 steps this week. I think I passed that on Friday.
On about 132'000 steps from Monday... so if I do 18k steps tomorrow, 150k step[s supertarget... Read more
WALKING LIKE A DEMON SO FAR THIS WEEK...

Yeah, it hurts my ankles after a co... Read more

Got 99k steps last week, doh! So this should be doable. Had painful walking on Sunday though - actually got the bus back from town is was so joyless.
Started yester... Read more
Mid-April update, FINALLY!! :)
I'm struggling, but hopeful!
I certainly take a while to learn the obvious... Stress, tiredness and overexterion make me forget my good habits, I start procrastinating and begin to have poor priorities. Think I need to draw a line in th... Read more
