as is Movember and any other wanky month-based bollocks.

 

If you want a beer, have one. If not, don't,

But to be honest, nobody gives a fuck whether somebody else is having a beer.

Absolutely, though I went to curry cottage for a takeaway Saturday, after a day of digging.

Whilst waiting ever cunt was supping and I could have murdered a kingfisher. :)

No chocolate, crisps or alcohol for me yet although other events have influenced that. Joined Slimming World with an opening weight of 19st 13.5lb. We'll see what happens.

FML. That’s a serious starting weight. Good luck Mike. Guessing it’s a side effect of early retirement?

Pretty sure a few life adjustments will get it down quickly.

Not much of the weight has come since retirement. A load came when I gave up smoking. I reckon a stone every couple of years since November 2006. My own fault; I should have joined a gym with the cash not being spent on cigarettes but it just gor swallowed back into the cost of family life.

As long as you are now up to addressing it, best of luck. Tough, but the first few stones should drop off quickly once you reverse your trends.

 

Was chatting to my local landlord on Saturday night (even in my state) after getting back from Brentford. He looked like a totally different person. Lost 5-6 stones in the last 6-7 months. He'd been diagnosed with diabetes. Was ex-army and since having a pub, he'd done zero exercise and was averaging around 60 pints a week - plus the bar snacks and pub grub. Was a bit of an epiphany for him. He became a grand parent and felt totally unfit to even pick up his grand child. He's done the majority of that weight loss by eating the right food. Only now is he starting to do a bit of exercise to shift the last few stones.

I think park run is fantastic. Loads of folk all ages shapes etc all getting out there and enjoying some fresh air.

This is the point of it for me (although I don't tend to do them anymore as I have to get my longer runs in on a sat or sun) 

 

If you want to know more about the Bolton Parkrun and why it's important have a listen to this https://marathontalk.com/shows/episode-403-rowan-ardill/

 

There is an interview with the guy who does the Bolton parkrun and the stories about him trying to get more people to it, just to become fitter (or just have more confidence) are really interesting. The points be makes about social class being  one of the biggest barriers to exercise is shown in the attendance figs - so for example somewhere like Bromley when I go if I do is rammed but in poorer parts of the country its much more difficult to get people to attend.

 

Its an interesting listen, and if people want to show off people they've gone faster than they thought they could, or even just turning up and finishing it, fair fucks I say - its difficult for many people to get the courage up to step out of the door. If parkrun has stopped people getting illnesses later on in life or helped them lose weight, great. Its free, its accessible, its non judgemental and its supportive. World would be a better place for more things like this.

Not always true, I’m quicker now than I have ever been due to running for a year. Times are still getting better even as I approach 40..

 

Aye, did 3.5 miles today, average pace of 8m 18s a mile, fastest since June 2014

Always been around 11.5 stone (6 foot tall). Never been on a diet as such, drink every weekend, but i've never snacked and don't like chocolate and cakes etc....

 

My family are all keep fit fanatics - my partner is at the gym 4 days a week - size 4/6, and weighs just over 6.5 stone - amazing body for her age.

 

My son runs around 100 KM every week and my younger daughter is a runner too, both without an ounce of fat on them, although their diets could be improved.

That's genuinely impressive. Snacks are my vice. Biscuits, crisps etc.

Got more chocolate this Christmas than ever before- could open a shop. In all reality I'd rather have had a bag of clean limestone or some such useful stuff.

At any time

 

I cannot bear running or going the gym in the AM, it knackers me for the day, swim at best

 

Early afternoon the best time

 

Used to run any time of night in any weather but over last few years I feel less inclined when it's either dark or cold
