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 ...

Starting 2017 as I mean to go on…

I started today with a run. I haven't run in a few weeks due to the damage I did to my shoulder during the final 150m of the Royal Park's Half-Marathon in October. It still hurts when I run and now, when I walk briskly. So I made an appointment with my GP before Christmas and have ...

A change of gears required…

When I say I 'over-consumed' over the Christmas holidays, it's no exaggeration. I consistently ate whatever was put in front of me. When I wasn't eating, I was waiting on new food being prepared, or taking a short break after finishing my last meal. Or I was asleep.  Breaks between meals were short and sweet, ...

Talk about awkward baby photos…

I’m in the process of uploading a massive photo library to Google Photos, as it’s free and a handy back-up for sharing. Checking in now and then (only 22,000 or so photos to go - no exaggeration) and feeling more than a little awkward about some of the pics of me from a decade ago. ...

Tracking my (planned) weight loss…

Like many others, my mind turns to weight loss at this time of year. Somehow, I managed to put on a kilo and a half just over the Christmas break! Somehow? Who am I kidding? It was most definitely the week of champagne for breakfast, three heart-stopping meals a day and every other drink in ...
