This is my online journal to gauge my progress as I embark on a mission to get myself fit, lose weight and generally improve my lifestyle ahead of my big 30 in January. I will be adding frequent updates so that I can see the difference and this should hopefully motivate me to keep up with it! Short term goals (12th May - 30th September) 1) To run the London "Run to the beat" half marathon on 8th September in less than 1:55 (the same half marathon last year I completed in 2:01) 2) To weigh less than 210 LBS by 30th September Long term goals (by my 30th birthday in mid January) 1) To weigh less than 200 LBS 2) Be in the best shape of my life! 3) Have lost the belly! (ok the last two are not clearly defined!) Starting stats: Height - 6ft 1" Weight - 243.4 LBS Weight log: 25th May 2013 - 234.8 LBS 18th May 2013 - 235.6 LBS 12th May 2013 - 243.4 LBS Wish me luck!
