Now I’m past the second anniversary of starting the diet it’s worth giving an update. I’m still dieting on Mondays and Wednesdays. Indeed today was a diet day and I had a tin of sardines with a salad of lettuce, tomatoes (home grown), radish, celery, sweet pepper and cucumber with a ‘light’ dressing plus some Branston pickle. Followed up with a navel orange.
So my most recent weigh-in (Tuesday morning after a 6m run) showed me at 10st 10lbs – and I’ve been below 11st now for around a month. This may partly because my running schedule has been pretty heavy in preparation for a marathon (full) coming up.
I’m still going to the gym two mornings a week if possible, though sometimes only once, as with this week, as a result of other demands.
I’m still feeling good, indeed my training times are now as good as they have been for many years so it all seems to be working.
So anyone out there thinking about it or just on the diet and wondering – it works! Once you are used to it it just becomes a perfectly normal part of life….
