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 3 mile run on a sunny Saturday morning. Really pleased with the pace for the first mile, just need to work on maintaining it for the entire distance.
I’m now going to spend the rest of the weekend debating if I should shave my “manly man” man beard off.

Bleeding for my sport! 10 miles done! 
My legs are like jelly! Was going to quit at mile 9 but pushed right until the very end. 
Quick question to settle an argument … When out running and there is no pavement (or sidewalks as you Yanks like to call them), do you run with or against traffic?

After a nice relaxing bank holiday weekend it’s time to get back in the zone as the Bristol Half Marathon is now just a month away. Starting the week off with a 5 mile run. Really pleased with the pace, getting faster and feeling stronger in my stride.

Done the weekly food shop and for the first time in a long time I did not purchase any chocolate! Go me! 
Instead I picked up some green beans, broccoli and peas as I’ve seen a number if people make some good looking bulk meals with these. Only problem I have no idea what I’m doing! 
Sounds stupid but I’ve never cooked veg before! I need help! I Is this going to be enough? Am I missing anything else? Should I add pasta or rice?
Is there such a thing as “food stupid” because that would describe me very well.

First run of the week because I’ve been super busy with work. Still trying to explore my new neighbourhood, I live close to a Nation Trust estate full of picturesque cottages which were first built in 1811. They look like little hobbit houses!

Tumblr Right of Passage - Random 9 questions

I’ve been on Tumblr for a while and get tagged in these things from time to time but I can never remember to reply. But I feel like I owe it to you guys to reply to at least one seeing as its a bit of a Tumblr right of passage. So here is my Random 9 question tag thing!

Rule1: Always post the rules.

Rule 2: Answer the questions the person who tagged you asked and write 9 new ones.

Rule 3: Tag 11 people and link them to the post

Rule 4: Actually tell them you tagged them

I was tagged by runlittlepiggie, her questions for me are:

1) What is your dream job?

WWE superstar, I would love to get paid to run around half naked and hit people with chairs while beating up my boss in front of millions of people

2) Do you prefer fruit or vegetables?

Fruit. I really hate vegetables. When eating veg I look like i’m chewing a wasp.

3) What’s your weirdest sexual experience?

Got to many gross experiences that I won’t share, but one of the funniest is getting hot and heavy while doing the nasty stuff and our bellies rubbed together making a huge fart sound. Totally killed the moment but made us both laugh.

4) Do you think girls should have to make an effort when they go out (i.e. do hair and make up)?

What ever makes you feel comfortable I guess. As long as you don’t stink I don’t care. I used to work with a girl who never showered and used to stick her hand down the back of her trousers and sniff her fingers.

5) Favourite exercise?

Boxing. You either hit or get hit so you got to work your ass off.

6) Those things I call trousers, do you call them pants?

I’m English so I call them trousers. Pants are underwear. Sorry America, you got this one wrong, but you gave us Oreos so I forgive you.

7) Do you think weed should be legal?

Never smoked it, so I don’t really have an opinion 

8) Favourite book and why?

This sounds bad but I’ve not read a book since school. so it would have to be Of Mice and Men

9) Do you like kids? 

I love my nephew and niece, so yes I do like kids.

And I’m done, now I get to bug other people with some of my random questions. I would like to nominate seechrisrun megorun elkay723 mydailyoaths ohheyhey4444 fitnessappreviews vegancupcakecommander thr33s7ven sam-slash-b

Here are the questions:

1) If you had to dispose of a dead body, how would you do it?

2) What is your favorite movie line or scene?

3) If you could dis-invent one thing, what would it be?

4) What household chore have you never done?

5) What one thing annoys you most at a restaurant?

6) If fat, calories, cholesterol, etc were not an issue, what two foods would you feast on?

7) 
What’s the #1 most played song on your iPod?

8) If you could meet anyone, living or dead, who would you meet?

9) Which celebrity do you get mistaken for?

Start of week 3 of insanity and I can see some progress already.

3 mile run to finish the week off. Ran around #Bristol Harbourside which is nice and flat! This helped me push my average minute mile under 8mins.

Mmm look at those peaks! 6 hilly miles to add on Mondays cross country 4 miles. Where I’ve moved has a nice variety of routes, not found a flat route yet but I’ll keep looking! 
Giving a nice thumbs up after showering and jumping into bed, I’m now going to spend the rest of the night in bed watching The Great British Bake Off, love it!
