August 15, 2019

I feel like every couple of months I've been writing that I'm in a rut and just doing more or less the same thing over and over again to get out of it.

I have more or less gained back 2/3 of the weight that I lost in 2017 and maintained through 2018. 

The weight loss its...

Ok, so throughout June/July I was trying my hand at a hypnotherapy app to help deal with my binge eating, initially it did seem to have some impact on my eating habits, although looking back I think this might have just been pure determination to have something work. I...

I've been missing in action again for a little while, whilst I've been busy at work, so haven't had time to focus on the blogging, but have kept up my food logging and staying active.

I am still bouncing around the same few pounds, all my own fault, I haven't been as di...

So it's a little while since I last checked in with you all, my last post was at the beginning of June. I have kinda taken my eye of the ball with my weight loss and gained about 5-6lbs over the 2 months. 

So, the start of Autumn seemed to be as good a time as any to pr...

Tomorrow marks a 500 day streak of logging in on My Fitness Pal, I did actually start a month before that but took a small break from logging in whilst travelling, but who is counting?

So looking back over those days, what have I learnt? What, if anything, would I do di...

I've been at this weight loss thingamajig for just over 10 months now, I am past halfway to my initial goal of 85kg (187lbs) so I figure now is the time to look at increasing my calories a little as it's a good idea to slow down your loss gradually as you get closer to...

It feels so good to be back on track with strength training again, I haven't gotten much running in on account of the rubbish weather but I did try to out running on a treadmill for the first time (I am not a fan) I managed about 15 minutes at 8km per hour but found it...

I head to a music festival every year, it's kind of become a tradition since 2011, this year was no exception. 4 days of camping, drinking games, food trucks, music and hanging out with my best pals. Calorie counting has to kind of go out the window, so it was the perf...

June 16, 2017

It is now just over 6 months since I took control of my health & fitness, stopped making excuses for myself and started doing what I needed to do start losing weight. Losing weight itself has not been too challenging, although I confess there has definitely been the od...

April 27, 2017

Today was a good day, not because I have hit a goal weight, not because I've lost inches off my waist and not because I feel any slimmer, (especially after the Domino's pizza I had for lunch), today is a good day because I confirmed that my hard work is paying off and...
