I have flirted in and out with running for the past year, starting for a week or 2 and then stopping for a couple of months.
At Christmas I decided I really wanted to sort out my diet and get to living a healthier lifestyle. At Christmas I was 13'st4. I'm 5ft9 tall.
After mostly just cleaning up my diet and the occasional walk I was down to 12'10 by the end of Feb. Since then I have worked even harder on my diet and started running again, along with regular walks (on non runing days) Also started doing a press ups app and squats app on my phone on non running days.
I dont follow a C25K or anything, just slowly trying to increase my milage every couple of weeks, at the moment I do a circuit of 2 miles, the first mile non stop but then the final mile I stop 2 or 3 times and walk for maybe 10 seconds. I do my best to do this 3 times per week. I have built up to this over the last month.
Typical diet is
8am- Porridge with scoop of protein
10 am Banana
1pm Wholegrain tortilla with Beef/chicken peppers or beef/chicken salad
5pm Steak/Chicken with onion and pepper fried (1cal spray) served with veg.
or Ommlette with salad
or Tortilla's served with Sweet potato wedges.
8pm Banana or Banana protein shake.
* I know alot of people dont like protein shakes, but the ones I use are low carb and fat and about 100calories. I use them as they're filling and I quite enjoy them.
Currently down to 12'6 Ideally would like to get to 11'10 and see how I look /feel and go from there. Big year this year as I get married end of August!
Main downfall is weekends as of late I have been blowing all the weeks good work on a Friday takeaway, Saturday Beers and pizza and then big roast and more beer!
But now I'm limiting myself to one ' cheat' meal a week and try and only drink one night per week too.
I'm going to keep this thread as a little blog of food, excercise done etc....
