Chronicle of a Yo-Yo Dieter

My blog to chronicle my transformation from lazy yo-yo dieting bum to some sort of super trim super hero type person...
Nice sweaty selfie! Oh yeah I’ve shaved the beard, apparently wild untamed ginger beards with last weeks dinner stuck inside is not appealing to my work colleagues so I was forced to shave it!

Not long until the Bristol half marathon. Got out and did a nice 3 mile run just to keep the legs ready for Sunday! 
Also did insanity, sounds crazy to do both but I feel like I’m getting stronger and cardio had massively improved!

Results from last weeks fitness test. Achieving some great results doing this Insanity program, it will be a shame to stop once it’s done.

Got my number ready for next weeks Bristol Half Marathon. I’ll run 8 miles tomorrow and have two short runs mid week then rest until race day. 
That’s my prep leading up towards a half marathon, what’s yours?

Mmm I look lovely after today’s 10 mile run, nice and sweaty! 
The run felt great and I did not stop once. Feeling confident going into the half marathon in a few weeks time.

Started month 2 of insanity so finding it hard to find time to run but I managed to get 5k in today. Felt great after a 12 hour shift at work.

I’ve been living up to my usual yo-yo dieting ways this year, there was a month where I did absolutely no fitness what so ever and ate plenty of rubbish, try and guess which month that was by looking at the chart below:

But things are now going in the right direction, I’m down to 16.5% body fat. I’m trying to eat a lot better and run three times a week. Also doing the insanity program is really helping. I’m finishing off the recovery week and heading into the famous deadly month 2 so fingers crossed the fat will continue to drop.

Not going to lie the chocolate is not gone for good, but its all about moderation. I only eat it on the weekends and when I do its no way as much as I was eating before. It will either be a single bar or a dessert at a restaurant, a huge change from the “share” bags I was polishing off each day. Its important to work hard and treat yourself from time to time.¬†

So to sum up, motivation is high, fat is going down and the beard is officially grizzly 

8 miles around the lovely Bristol Harbourside. This long run felt a lot better then the last. Did not stop once.

Work has been non stop lately, struggling to fit a long run in this week. Managed to get a steady paced 3 miler in before going for a swim. 

Cheesy grin FTW!
