I've been sort of started on new diet and exercise regime seriously for the last three weeks. Really just working up to where I am now. I've invested in a set of Withings Body Scan scales and I'm waiting for a Fitbit tracker which will hopefully be delivered tomorrow. I've signed up with Runkeeper too which integrates with MyFitness Pal and the Withings Scale. So I can monitor just about every calorie taken in and worked off.
Over the past week I've worked off 5lbs. which is good going but I'm now settling into a more modest rate of weight loss. I'll be happy with a pound a week which is my goal. So I'll reach 13 stones by the beginning of August. My long term goal is 11st. 7lb. by Jan 1st 2014.
Nothing like a worthwhile challenge!
Welcome to my blog. The blog posts are mostly about my runs and my 'Life Lessons from Running'. You'll find too notes of things and people that give me inspiration. There's so much to be learned of life, a huge abundance of learning about oneself and the world; and life offers so much for the picking. I hope you find something here to inspire you. If you'd like to get in touch. Feel free!
