Weighing in at 68.7, only 3 walks this week totalling 19 miles but eating well, plenty of salad stuff, fruit and only a little meat.

Looking back I didn’t eat any fish which is unusual for me.

Not being a drinker or smoker my Xmas presents consist mostly chocolate, biscuits etc, I’ll be glad when I’ve finished ‘em all😀

I've had a really good week this week training and cutting out the rubbish and feel much better for it. No drinking and sticking largely to my main meals makes such a difference and I know I've lost weight but will check Monday after a full week. Out have been chocolate, biscuits, crisps etc and the likes of sneaky mid morning sausage rolls and Cappuccino's at work. I've tried to cut down on bread too. In have been fruit for snacks and I've generally tried to make most meals a bit healthier but nothing crazy. All going good so far.

Business trip this week, weighed in at 80.3kg so not too bad.

Signed up to do a 2020 walking challenge for the year, 5.5 miles aday, on target so far.  Only noticeable change is the dog has lost 1kg and had to up his daily calorie intake!

Won't get chance to weigh today. I suspect no change so leave it at that.

149.0 oops


With the best, thats a good bit of PR, though I would say the Bedford team, theres, like, you know, 13 blokes who can get together at the weekend to have a game together, which doesnt point to expansion of the game. Point, yeah go on!

162.5 lbs this week.  Crocked myself falling on ice this past Sunday, going to be a fun week doped up LOL.  Giving myself a week before getting back to major activity.  Focus on food intake instead and not eat the frustration.

Yeah I've been training for a good few years to be fair. Upper body always seems to lag massively behind unfortunately!

78.9 this morning. Decent 5 mile training run last night and improved eating. It's pretty basic theory on losing weight, harder in practice!

149.8.  

Next week will be a struggle as I'm away with work on expenses.... so 'free' breakfasts and restaurant every night.  I know you don't have to eat the menu... but when someone else is paying....

I travel on business. If it is Wednesday, I have to remind myself to eat like Wednesday, not Saturday night.

You're doing business wrong.

My issue at the minute is multiple work lunches. I am doing these right 🙂
