Second fast day today. Why do fast days go so slowly?

You fast on a Saturday??? :-O Wow. You must have a will of steel. I did a 10-miler this morning though, which is roughly the same calorie deficit I reckon.

I stopped doing 5:2 in January, after the regime had taken me down from 105kg to 84kg. Since then, I've pretty much 'flat-lined' at 84-85kgs.

Back doing one semi-restricted day a week from this week, both to show solidarity to my wife and to just lose a tiny bit more.

I'm so glad that I stuck with 5:2 through 2013. I now wear "M" tops instead of "XL". I also slip into 34" trousers, instead of 38" ones with 'elasticated' waistbands. As to my running, I'm loving it.

Keep the faith.
