I never really got back onto the healthy eating and exercise thing after christmas.
As a result I'm now 14 stone 6. Considering a couple of years ago I was close to 13 stone I'm not too happy.
I'm blogging this in the hope it provides motivation to change lifestyle. Kinda like Gym membership but cheaper to the tune of 30 squid a month.
The recovery program has already begun, with the purchase of a new bicycle last week. I'm starting with a ten mile ( ish ) route I used last time I was cycling after work. After a few weeks I'll up the distance to somewhere around the 25 mile mark ( I must measure it ).
Today I did my second run on the bike. 49 minutes and 26 seconds, normally I wouldn't bother with seconds over such a distance ( traffic lights and other road users make it a lottery ) but its just under a psychologically important barrier
so I'll let it stand - just this once. Next target 45.
Faith in the process will be required whilst my body adapts to the new lifestyle.
