Week 5

Right so this week I managed a 2.3kg loss, which equates to about 5lbs. My total weight loss is now 8.3kg not to bad in 5 weeks. Managed to up the swimming to 105 lenghts in an hour, which ain't to bad. Thanks to all the people reading this thead helped me stay motivated after the flat week I had last week.

Not much to report this week, i'm the same weight as I was last week. I've upped my swimming to 84 lenghts, but then ruined my shoulder doing weights.

All but 1 off the days I had planned for riding were called of due to poor weather. Doesn't help that a friend was visiting from Hong Kong so we went to TGIs then there was also pancake day.....

However its a new week so I'm going to start again and I still have not had any sweets or fizzy drinks this year yet...

Ridng this weekend has been cancelled due to snow as well however I should be going to chicksands on sunday.

My 3rd Week, My First Stone

Hi Guys,

Well, I had a shaky start to the week (which in this case is the weekend since weigh in is on Friday).

It was a busy week last week so mostly I just sat on the couch caught up on the weeks TV, played some PS3, oh and watched the super bowl, I didn't go the gym, and I had my first dominos.

At least the Saints one, I did want the colts to win, but since my team is the Vikings I was soon moved by the underdog story and was glad when the saints won.

Anyway I digress, jumped on the creaking scales today I registered another loss of 1kg exactly. So i now weigh 177.5kg which is 27.95 stone.

So that’s it, 3 weeks down and 1 stone lighter, I don't feel much different, but hey, I've only lost about 3% of my overall weight.

The plan for next week, well I'm starting off on the right foot, I'm going riding on Sat, then I'm of to the gym to get my weights program. Then on Tuesday I'm riding in Surrey, then I'll try to get out a few more times.

I go swimming every weekday morning before work, I do 53 lengths (1007m), half breast stroke 1/2 front crawl. When I started this I struggled with 30 lengths. I'm going to step it up this week so I'm going to start swimming 84 lengths which is basically 1600m.

Hopefully next week will be a bigger loss.

Another week another....

It's still good news this week, I'm happy to report that it is still a loss.

I was getting worried that a 3 course meal with good friends in London on Wednesday would ruin my hard work done throughout the week.

My weight this week is 178.5kg, a total loss of 1.7kg which sounds rubbish until you use lbs then it sounds better at 3.52lbs.

However hopefully next week will be better, though I do have a group of friends round on sunday to watch the superbowl so might have to step up exercise next week.

The world at risk


For various reasons, the stability of the earths crust, the delicate balance of the earths orbit, and the fact my shins don't really like it, I don't normally run, however I've decided run the risk of damaging the world and I'm going to participate in the sport relief mile.

Now I know it's called the sport relief mile, and a mile isn't very hard to run, however this year there are variations on the theme, and I've decided to do the 3mile run. Yes thats right people, 3 whole miles, and for me thats about 2.9 miles more then I usually run in American Football.

Now I'd like to say I'm doing this is for charity, and it is so sponsor me , but I'm doing it to help me loose weight.

I'll update the blog soon to inform people of how I'm going about loosing weight, but so far I'm to busy working 14hour days, so when I get some time, probably after Fridays weigh in I will.
