Always nice to see a new blog - and good luck with getting back into the plodding.
Couldn't figure out how to follow your site - is there a simple way to get e-mail update? I'm rubbish at remembering to check into sites...
If you're interested, my blog is at:
I'll follow and support on here if that's ok? Am trying to shift around 17lbs myself but am still out there running. Suffered from a lack of mojo for a while but on average run around 15-20 miles a week. Am just embarking on an 8 week schedule to try and crack my 10k pb of 58 minutes (I'm a plodder too!).
Good luck but why wait, can't you start with a walk 1 min run 1 min schedule or something similar? That's how I started.
I agree with Trigger
when i started i bought Bruce Tulloh's book 'running over forty'
it starts with some easy achievable walk only, and walk/run schedules that are managable by most people.
you may be able to find it in the library to save cash
good for you, good luck
great blog by the way!
I used the Beginning Runner's Handbook - starts at 30 seconds run, 4:30 walk and slowly builds. It's a 13 week programme and ends with a 10k.
Can highly recommend it.
Not sure what dietary plan you're going to be using but I've used SW before and shifted 2 1/2 stone in about 7 months without any exercise at all.
Will check out the blog later - am posting from work and it won't allow me access!
Well done! Checked out the blog from home. The most I've ever lost in a week is 7lbs so can appreciate how hard it is.#
Look forward to hearing more
A bit late entry, I hope it's ok!
Good job Shit2Fit.. Cool blog as well!
@PBAB: Great blog as well! Much enjoyed it!
Thanks for that!
If you are following a 6-meal regime, you will absolutely love the Abs Diet by D. Zinczenko (from Men's Health).. Nice, balanced, no fuss, realistic and easy to follow when time is an issue (which I guess always is! At least for me!!)
Not dropping too low on calories as well, will prevent you from plateu-ing and keep your weight loss slower but real (i.e. fat loss not muscle loss). You should also consider adding some resistance training to tone up without messing with your weight loss.. Something quick and effective like Craig Ballantyne's Turbulence Training maybe? It's good because it doesn't even require gym membership and it only takes about 20 minutes. You can have this mini sessions the days you're not running!
(can't find how to subscribe to your blog btw.. am I having a blonde moment? )
