Diets!! We’ve all tried them, haven’t we? I certainly have, every now and again I’ll try something else to try and lose weight but so easily get fed up with eating very little and splurge on junk and take-a-ways.

My running is slowly heading in the right direction but I still need to lose some weight. About 4 weeks ago the Wife started at Slimming World and I agreed I would give it a go with her but all along thinking it will last a week or so and back to eating rubbish. How wrong could I have been…

It’s not like been on a diet, it’s more a way of changing how and what you eat. I still feel as if I’m eating more than enough and slowely but surely the weight is starting to go. I started this weighing 13 stone 4 pounds and at the minute I’m around 12 stone 8 pounds, not massive amounts but it’s coming off 😉

Another plus from all this is I’ve even started to help with the cooking and like today I even managed to cook a whole meal by Myself….

Chicken Pizzaiola 😉

So if anyone has tried diet after diet and is wanting to lose weight try slimming world (no I’m not sponsored by them, although if they want to send freebies feel free)

My Garmin, My Dad!!!

1 Feb

I’ve been having a few problems with my Garmin Forerunner 410 just lately and it got me thinking about how technology has progressed over the last few years. We can now strap on our watch and head off out the door and our watches will track our mileage, our time and break it all down into segments so we can see how we performed at every moment of our run and then….

We upload it all to various sites, Strava, Facebook, Twitter etc., for the whole World to see.

Let Me take you back twenty-odd years, I used to run in my late teens early twenties and at that time my watch probably had Micky Mouse hands 😂 so how did I know how far I ran and how long it took?

Well that was down to a Special Guy, My Dad! If I wanted to know how far I had run I would ask him to come with Me and He, along with My Mum would jump in their car and drive alongside me. Out the top end off Roseworth, along Blakeston Lane to Thorpe Thewels and then along some Country Roads until we got back home. No poating to social media then either if I wanted to let someone know, I had to actually speak to them lol

Looking back now, I can’t believe My Dad used to do this for Me! Love and miss you loads Pop x
