Last year in June I started 5.2 but was having a lunch. I was also exercised 3-4 times a week at that point. My weight loss was very very slow, but I was losing.,
I joined the fitbit gang and didn't like the step count on rest days so started doing 5k walks. Then I started running, at the end of sept I completed insane terrain, a 5k run/walk with obstacles and such.
Next was my op 4th dec, so now it's 2014 and 6 weeks post op tomorrow.
During my recovery I didn't do a full fast for over 4 weeks, I did do 16.8 every day however.
It is now 2014
I'm aiming to return to work next week (phased return). Seeing my consultant on Thursday (day after tomorrow) once I've seen him I will know if I am indeed healing ok.
So my weight..........was great throughout my recovery, it fell slightly, but then as soon as I started fasting properly ie 5.2 I started gaining, I'm not sure what's happened, only that maybe the odd shortbread, mince pie, baileys has added up to more than I should have had. I don't think I'm the only one who's reported a delayed Xmas gain
I've been walking about a mile a day since early last week.
Today I was so cross about the scales that I took myself off for a good talking to and ended up doing a 4.5 -5k beautiful river walk with ely cathedral my view on the way and the sun in my face coming back. Reward for all those steps, a piece of Xmas cake and a cup of tea.
Anyhow I can't sit around moaning about it I've got to do something. So here goes. Running starts at the weekend with 4.3. No messing
