We were throwing away a load of food weekly shopping, and this makes it easier to try new meals, that are healthy with no waste - plus no more shopping.

its not cheap, but we do it for the weeks we’re not in/back late so we’re not just having takeaways - that way it saves money, we eat well, throw away less and save time.

Fair enough. I'd have thought it was just as easy (and cheaper) to get stir fry stuff etc? How's the running going? Are you going to go mental with it like MB and do an Ironman?

Work has been a bit busy since Xmas so it’s dropped off a bit - still doing 10/15 miles a week and 10k races every month or so.

didnt get into the great north run, so going to do a couple more halves this year. Would love to do more and a marathon, but I just don’t have the time at the moment, or I’d have to live like a monk. No Ironman for me; maybe when the kids are older! Still, it’s  keeping the blood sugar down!

Managed 3x gym sessions this week. A 25-min boxing session. And 2x 3.2km runs. Oh, and a 4km walk on Monday. Rest day tomorrow.

Think I'm going to have a crack at dropping the carbs again next week for a fortnight. Could be tough!

First c25k session done

Will be at the park run end of march

First week done, all pretty easy. 1 minute running is no great shakes

Week 2 starts Sunday. Think we are up to 90 seconds at a time

After a bit, I get bored and start missing runs. This time I'll just be patient

I hate running

I'm off out for copious amounts of booze and dirty unhealthy food this weekend. Don't tell me gp as I've got high blood pressure apparently.

Done really well so far this year, after ditching beer at weekends for spirits and diet mixers, ditched a slice or two of bread with my evening meal, bought one of those packet of sandwiches for lunch from Tesco with less than 300 calories in it and when I get peckish, just snack on peanuts & raisons and I'm ready for my May holiday already, speedos here we come!

I notice that you carry your lunch around in your speedos.
