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...

gaywifelife asked: Tell us kind sir, what is your running app?!

Hello! The running app I use is nike+ running. Add me as a friend - retrobanjo

Another 5 miles in the bank this week. Which brings this weeks total to 12 miles. 
From doing nothing in the last 2 weeks to running 12 miles this week, I’m cream crackered!

Alternative Running Tip No.3

When running an event and you walk to the start line they usually like to position you based on your estimated finish time. 
Don’t get cocky, I like to go to the back of my estimated finish time group or join the one behind.
I find if you are to far in front, to many people will overtake you which can demotivate or force you to peek to soon and gas out.
If I start a little behind I can find space easier and overtake lots of people which gives you a huge confidence boost.

4 miles in the bank. Feeling good. That’s 7 in total this week. Aiming for 5 more on Friday.
Got to stay focused, eat right and keep the game face on.

#GetYourMilesOut

After some time off I managed to dust off the running shoes and get back out there and hit 3 miles.

Alternative Running Tip No.2

Plan your running route around your house. Avoid running 10 miles in one direction then 10 miles back. 
Runners trots is a real thing, you don’t want to be stuck in the middle of nowhere looking for a gap in a bush, using leafs or a stray cat as toilet paper.

Had an awesome week off work. Went to Alton Towers to scream like a girl on some roller coasters and spent a few days in London to visit the Queen and walk around her tourist filled streets.Finished the week by cheering on my girlfriend and her family watching them complete a 5k to help raise money for cancer research. They did wicked, and for people who are not very keen on running, they loved every second of it.She is raising money for Cancer Research UK, a charity her late granddad was a huge supporter of who sadly passed away last year. If you want to sponsor her, you can do so at this link:-https://www.justgiving.com/Durbins/Back to work tomorrow … I’m dreading it!

Back to work tomorrow … I’m dreading it! 

Sorry I’ve not been posting much, I’ve been off work and enjoying the time off, so to be honest I’m not that sorry! 

I love my running, but my girlfriend who always supports me can’t understand the fascination. This Sunday the roles are reversed and for the first time I become the spectator and she is running her first ever 5k.

She and her family are running the Bristol 5k to help raise money for Cancer Research UK, a charity her late granddad was a great supporter of who sadly past away last year.

If you would like to sponsor my girlfriend and her family to help raise money for a great charity and earn me some major awesome boyfriend points  - Please click the link.

Another 5 miles in the bank running around the graffiti filled city of Bristol.

Plus Insanity day 10 on top. I’m now dead. If anyone needs me you’ll find me passed out half way up the stairs.
