My Fat Osteopath
So on Monday I had my first session with my Osteopath that’s based in my university. It cost me £30 for my first analysis and then £25 thereafter. I went there because I have really bad runners knee and have had back pain since I was 16. Me being a guy, I’ve never of course had it checked out! Who needs help right? But now as I get older I know that it’s best to go and...
My Fat Swim Sessions Vol. 5 & 6
Monday was another good session, those are probably where I get my best swimming done, I don’t know why. Picked up a load of people on the way there and on the way back too, I don’t mind it because we always have a laugh when we do it! My fitness is getting a lot better, I know I was fit before but swimming is so different to running and cycling and it feels so good to be back in the...
My Fat Goals
…are completed? Last week I hit my goal weight that I set myself just before the blog started. I’ve worked extremely hard and now I’m there, where I’ve wanted to be for years. How does it feel? Amazing. My outlook on life has changed a lot now and I’m a more positive person. I now know the value of hard work and what it can bring to someones life. Anything is possible...
My Fat Runkeeper!
Not really a question or anything but I just clocked up my 100th activity on Runkeeper today : D. Chuffed with that. Anyone else find that it's always pretty much off 0.10th of a mile with any regular route you have?
My Fat Swimming Session Vol 3. & 4
I didn’t get to blog up on Monday night because I was so knackered, I don’t recommend anyone to do an hour swimming session after doing a 10k run the day before! Anyway onto my actual set, I managed to get everything down on the session which was nice! Warm Up 5x100 as: odds 50m swim, 50m Kick evens 50m swim, 50m pull (so swim, kick, swim, pull etc. total 500m) Second Set 8x50m...
My Fat 10k Run
Apologies for my late post, it’s been a long week!My run went extremely well on Sunday! I really went for it to get a time within 50 minutes and it’s fair to say I smashed that with a time of 47:48. Right at the end I had a sprint and passed like 20 people! After that a guy came up to me and said, “nice finish man, that was awesome” I said thanks and it brought a...
My Fat 10k...Is Fast Approaching!
I know I’m ready for it but I haven’t actually ran for just under 2 weeks now which is shameful for me, I know I can do the distance though and I’ve been swimming with the team…I can’t help but feel nervous though! Hopefully it all just comes back to me on Sunday, I’m going for a light run on Saturday though to keep the blood flowing and see how I feel,...
My Fat Swimming Session Vol. 2
Morning everyone, had my second session with the swim team and I didn’t cramp up as much yesterday which was great, I think in about a month or so I’ll be swimming a lot better and can keep with the times set out in our swimming schedules. I’ve got the usual ache’s and pains today though, left shoulder hurts and my right shin hurts a lot. I’m going to have a big...
My Fat Day
…has gone pretty well so far! I woke up to 20+ emails from tumblr telling me that I have loads of new followers which is great! a big fat thankyou to you all and I hope we can help each other through this! Weightloss & keeping fit isn’t easy but it helps a lot when there’s lots of people supporting you and us fitblr’s need to stick together! On to another factor of my...
Fit By 30: Halfway point, a brief catchup →
fitby30: So todays weigh-in signifys the mid point in my goal of becoming ‘fit by 30’. I started on March 8 2010 and my big 3-0 is on June 5th 2010. I originally started out with an aim of getting a BMI under 25. I soon realised that the BMI is inherently flawed and as such probably not the best yardstick…
My Fat Swimming Session
I always wanted to join the uni swim team but couldn’t before because I wasn’t fit enough and had my weight issues. I’ve overcome all that now and nearly lost all the weight that I initially wanted to. Firstly - it feels great! “Never Again” is what I tell myself when I think about getting big again, it’s just not worth it. Anyway on to the swimming, I...
fitby30 asked: Still can't comment back to replies on tumblr so this is in reply to your question on my post this morning... yes the 10k is the victoria park one next sunday.
My Fat Break
I’m back! I’ve had two weeks off for emotional reasons and genuinely feeling burnt out but I always look back at my August activities and I want to go back to that, so October 11th to November 10th is going to be a long hard month for me, I’m going to be training with the Uni Swimming team Monday, Wednesday and Friday starting today and my 10k Run (Sponsor Me!) is on Sunday!...
