  1. 70,000 steps a week which can be walking and/or running plus a kettlebell workout three times a week. To drop six pounds by the end of the challenge.
  2. Hi Guys It has been a fair while since I have been on here, this has been mostly due to my long term naff ankle deciding it has given me enough warnings and saying "screw you" and giving out entirely; no excuses, all my own fault but the high I get from running outweighed the pain I was getting and then....arghh. Six months plus with no running appears to have cured the problem although tbh I am wary of putting it to the test; a very brisk walk of 5 miles seems ok but you never know. Still cycling which i do enjoy but it does not give me a running high.
  3. Hey girl, I hope you are on the upward path now, it seems so from your posts. Best wishes from London lol.
  4. This afternoon STUPID STUPID STUPID I had not eaten since 6-30 the previous night so I decided to go to the gym at 1pm today. 15 minutes of kettlebells and then I started a 60 minute run at a high speed (at least by my standards) after 25 minutes I felt like death was stalking me. What an IDIOT and its not like I have not done this before with the same result.
  5. Minor things that make a major difference. A bit of smuggery (is that even a word?) here. I can now: Tie my shoelaces without a struggle Bend down to drop a dropped coin without grunting Get out of the deep armchair in my lounge without needing to push myself up using my arms. Touch my toes without bending my knees. Not a big deal to many but it means a great deal to me.
  6. Hi guys, no posts for a while due to having 20 days on holiday from mid May, I have got behind on my work and needed to do a bit to catch up, excuses excuses LOL. The exercise has been in a "steady as she goes" mode. The diet has been a bit off kilter but the calorie level has been about right. A few posts will follow this one I just hope I don't bore you all.
  7. Todays idea. Nike says just do it, may i add "just do it again" See you guys on Wednesday.
  8. ONLY!!!! 45 miles, you are to hard on yourself, I would hate to guess what portion of the western world could ride 45 miles but I would think it would be below 2%.
  9. 7.5 minutes a KM is pretty damn good and a great achievement after 11 weeks, congratulations.
  10. You have that right, I tend to get home an hour or more earlier from work than she does and it normally goes something like this. "have you been to the gym yet" (me) not sure if i will tonight (her) Ok then you better get the dinner started and their is some ironing to do (me) I think I will go to the gym. LOL.
  11. No dropping out, remember the only bad challenge is the one you dont do not the one that does not complete all you goals. Glass half full is the way not glass half empty.
  12. Sue, thank you so much for your kind and heart warmimg words. My wife is a truly supportive person although she does have an ability to see through my sometime bullshit and call me out on it. The good thing is we like mostly the same things but also have our own spaces. My trust in her is 100%.
  13. Hi Terinatum, sorry about your problems, I will be thinking of you.
  14. Thanks fearless. I love hot days, i love walking along a dusty road and seeing the heat haze shimmer on the concrete, i love sitting outside a bar/cafe in the sun drinking a cold beer, i love walking along the edge of the sea in the sun. Someday those clothes will fit that is a given all you have to do believe and do what you know you should do. It wont be tommorow but in a years time you will love yourself for what you did today so keep on keepin on.
  15. 10880 steps yesterday 6.8 km travelled No gym work. Not altogether a good day on the fitness/diet front. Did not eat until 1.15 then had a small slice of pizza in a cafe followed by cake. My team West Ham utd are moving to a new stadium (the Olympic Stadium) in 2016 so my wife, myself and a group of friends went to the sales office to sort out our new seats (the presentation and the computer generated views are brilliant) all done we then went to the pub. Two pints of Peroni plus a chiliburger and chips (fries to you colonials lol) followed. Arriving home we then had ginger cake at which poin
  16. More reports/posts please, let us know how you are getting on.
  17. All looking good, more reports please, dont be a stranger lol
  18. Todays thought We are not on a journey to find ourselves, we are on this journey to create ourselves. Or to put it another way "its never too late to be the person you always wanted to be" this is the Fatface clothing store logo and something I truly believe. Since I have been on this journey i feel that i have become a calmer, more patient and generally a better person this is probably because i am no longer disgusted with myself, fat acceptance is mostly a good thing but was never for me.

  20. Not much to report on yesterday however I have lost two pounds and the target jeans feel somewhat looser so I am adding a new target for this challenge which is to be comfortable in said jeans. My last pair of target jeans are a 30" waist which I bought 32 years ago, in truth I dont know how they are still around. If I manage to get into them I will have completed my weight journey if not my fitness journey as I will have lost 12" from my waist (8" so far).
  21. A gin and tonic hangover! They are the worst that and a Peroni hangover.
