Monthly update on health and wellbeing, and I mention this twitter account which runs best album polls which I've found a good way to pass the time. https://www.youtube.com/embed/tOGJx298pBk Any thoughts? You know what to do. BETEO.
I don't know why I've always wanted to skinny dip, I mean, like most people I did it as a kid but it doesn't really count does it? I think the idea started when I was at uni and a friend of mine confessed that they'd gone skinny dipping and it seemed daring and risque … Continue reading Bucket List #20: Skinny Dip (video update)
Got a new vlog up where I talk about my feelings about my body and, specifically, my beard. Bit longer than I expected, so maybe grab a cup of tea or a snack. Any thoughts? You know what to do. BETEO.
Okay, so I know it's not the end of the month yet, but the March update of my weight loss attempt is going up now because I'm away the end of the month on holiday and I'm not going to weigh while I'm away. It just seems daft to spoil what should be a relaxing … Continue reading Fat Boy on a Diet: March 2019 Update: You don’t weigh on holiday
If you're on social media, you can't have failed to miss the recent #10YearChallenge, which has seen people have been posting photos of themselves from 2009 and the present, to compare how much they've changed. I've heard some say it's been popularised so that facial recognition software has more to work with and can develop … Continue reading Ten Years Gone: Reflecting on the #10YearChallenge
Let's be honest with each other folks, while November ended on a positive note, with a consistent run of weight loss, none of us expected December to go well. I resolved to try my best, but with advent ticking away and Christmas looming ever larger on the horizon temptations began to pile up. Family events, … Continue reading Fat Boy on a Diet: December and 2018 Update
After October proved to be a bit of a mixed bag in terms of my weight loss journey, I was hoping to go forward making a few small changes and resisting temptation better. While I have had a few indulgences over the last five weeks, I have taken a few healthier choices and thanks to … Continue reading Fat Boy on a Diet: November Update: November to Remember
So, the new "2 lbs a week regime" didn't work out that great, and while I was aiming to be 8 lbs lighter I'm actually only 1.5 lbs down on where I was at the end of September. Bad times. I suspect part of this is down to the fact that I was off work … Continue reading Fat Boy on a Diet: October Update: Falling Short, Feeling Fine
I've been trying to be good the last couple of weeks, and have exercised more regularly, routinely breaking my 10,000 steps target for each day. I've also taken some steps towards eating healthier, mainly by just not stuffing myself like a pig and switching to buying fruit instead of chocolate at work. I've felt like … Continue reading Fat Boy on a Diet: September Update: Good News and Goals
So, yesterday I finally climbed onto the scales for the first time in a while. It didn't make for good reading. I've put back a bit of weight and the gains I made a couple of months back have been wiped out. There's no excuses, this is all on me. While I have been getting … Continue reading Fat Boy on a Diet: August Update Part 2: Saw That Coming
