Fatboy slim(mer)

I finally got some functioning scales at the end of Nov and found I’d gone up to 14st. I mean who knew that eating a family bar of chocolate every night & not exercising could lead to weight gain?
So I decided to take action and went on a fairly simple eating regime (tea for breakfast, smoothie for lunch, normal dinner plus cut out the snacks). I’d like to pretend it was some Homeric struggle but, combined with marathon training it was okay.
I also used this app to track foods and weight loss & today I reached the target weight I’d set myself of 12st. Not exactly skinny but lighter than I’ve been for 20 years probably.
Now, bring the pies!

Autumnal run

Having been away for a week I really noticed how much autumn has set in on my return.
Went out for a quick run before sleeping a lot. I managed to keep my run streak going in SA. Sometimes it required an heroic effort, for instance when I arrived after 27 hours of travel. I only did 1 mile, which is hardly worth it but it kept the streak going. And then after Brian Lamb [i]made[/i] me drink too much beer, I managed a 3 miler the next day. It will be good to get back to a normal routine now.
