Keeping accountable: An April update

After January's moan-fest-slash-admission-of-fatness post, I thought it was time for an update. This month, after not a lot of progress, I've made a few changes to my routine and I'm happy to say they're paying off for me. Food On the diet front, the biggest change I've made is logging all my food and drink ...

Hitting the hotel gym

A short update from the front lines of the battle against my belly bulge... Amazing myself (really!), I visited my hotel gym here in Edinburgh both last night and this morning! The gym itself is very new and clean - and above all, pretty deserted. Just how I like it. I can't bear a busy ...

An accountability update

After my last, self-flagellating post, detailing my seasonal gorging, I managed to have quite a few 'healthy' days in a row. By which I mean I made it to the gym each day I was working in Dublin - and on the weekend!     I also managed to avoid cake. Except for a single scone ...

Hands up if you’re a lazy, boozey fatty…

There's only one way to put it: I let myself go completely in December. Not in a free-thinking or hedonistic way, but in a completely gluttonous, greedy, calorific way. No cake or mince pie was rejected, no drink or cocktail was politely declined. I ate like a competitive eater and drank like a student. Plus, ...

Spontaneous running joy!

Don't ask me why. But somehow, I woke up before my alarm this morning. A full 30minutes earlier than planned. @TheFrankFlyer brought me my usual Nespresso in bed (bless 'im!) and after a quick perusal of the new on my iPad, I found myself getting dressed. In my running gear! A quick glance at my ...

Food and exercise: another accountability update

I'll raise my hand right now - this has not been a good week. In fact, it's been such a 'not good week', that I've avoided weighing myself so I don't have to see the harsh reality. The plan has been somewhat abandoned for the last five days or so. Don't worry, I'm not 'get the ...

An accountability update

Since I so publically committed to shedding some of my inappropriately acquired flab, I thought it would be useful to provide a bit of an update. Accountability and all that... Things I'm happy with I'm less fat! In terms of shedding weight, I've gone from 68.8 to 66.6 kilos since I started the year. Not ...

A Huel upgrade

Now that I'm back into a semblance of healthy eating (healthy for me, that is - I'm no saint, nor am I a puritan!) and eating drinking consuming Huel regularly, I decided to expand my Huel repertoire and try new combinations. I've already identified a couple of combinations that I really like: One mixing Huel with ...

Huel keeping hunger at bay

Two days into my reformed ways for 2017 and food is never far from my mind. I'm back using Huel as a meal replacement and valuable source of vitamins and minerals. It makes for a great start to the day and keeps me really, really full. Which in turn makes it super-easy to avoid snacking or ...
