A guy I work with in Singapore has just complete his eighth marathon. It wasn't until he shared a newspaper article about it that I found out that he was in an accident eight years ago and has no left calf muscle. At all. Just not there. Hell of an achievement.

Whaaa?! Wow 8)

Also, I didn’t realise you worked in Singapore. What’s the commute like?

Squeaked in just under two hours for a half marathon this evening. I was taking it easy and enjoying the sunshine until mile ten when I realised it was possible so Got A Stomp On.

Race a week a Sunday.

Felt the black dog nipping at my heals today.

Went out on a quick bike. I have not been out on it in ages.

The weather was biblical half way. But coffee and cake helped

I think this means GJ now becomes responsible for everything we do.

So time for a shoplifting spree.

An accountability group, we've all paid in and set our goals for the month. Winner gets cash. :)

I have lost a whole lot of money on a whole lot of bad bets in casinos, but I don't think even I'd be daft enough to bet on myself not eating cake.

Well I had to come off of two of my medications after it was proven they are causing heart conditions. Hopefully reversible, no major damage done and I won't miss the palpitations, faux heart attacks (three have had me in A&E) and the peeing myself.

The withdrawal has been atrocious, as you would expect. However the upshot is without doing much of anything I have lost over two stone in less than a month. I no longer feel hungry all of the time, over eat, nor have protection against my IBS by the meds. If I eat to much now I am glued to the toilet.

15st 11. The lightest I have been in nearly 6 years. Even with a 4 month stint of riding for miles every day last year I only came down to around 16. TBH before I started these meds I was never huge. About the biggest I got to was 14 stone, and I had issues carrying it. I usually hovered around 13.5st, and a 34"ish waist. I am hoping now that I can get back there because living in a flat with 8 sets of stairs is playing havoc on my knees. I'm also hoping I can lose my "Quetiapine boobs". That would be nice.

Already though my clothes look huge on me. Two Tshirts I had to stop wearing now have about 6" of room in the front (Fallout vault boy inspired Negan from TWD).

I don't feel that bad. Nerves are shot and I ache and sweat but I know that's just withdrawal. Don't ever let your doctor or psych put you on Pregabalin. They are handing it out like bloody sweets. My cousin lost 3 fingers in a lawnmower accident and they even gave it to him. Now he's bloody hooked on it as well. And the stupid part is it only really does anything for about 2 weeks, then does sod all apart from the side effects such as peeing yourself and god knows what else.

For many years when I was young I went somewhere else with the aid of drugs. Not legal ones. I came out of that aged around 22, then went stone cold sober (never been a drinker) until I was 35 when my illness got too much and I basically had to go somewhere else again. Funny how my life seems to go in mathematical patterns of time. Any way, my vile ex is gone and I am now housed safely and with the stability I need so tbh? I don't really feel like blotting it all out. It's nice coming back to life again. I hung a picture up in my kitchen that had been waiting six months, built two bikes and am working on two more.

I don't like the anxiety, but then nothing I've taken has really worked. A week and I am back to biting my fingernails to oblivion again any way.

Heh, there's some sort of vote at the end. I'm not sure how it all works at the moment, but the accountability and support is good.

I have two this month, one is to lose 14lbs and the other to complete the sit up challenge. I think the first won't be too difficult as I'm so overweight, but even anything close will be a really good start.

Struggling with the second one as I've done something to my groin, going to the docs this morning though as I felt good after day one, so really want to carry on.

Cool - good luck!

Ouch @ the groin. I hope it's nothing major.

I did consider the sit-up challenge myself when I saw your post on Facebook. I'd just forget to do it though :DD :facepalm:

Ha! Well we have a closed group and Kovacs is doing an excellent job as main motivator. There are a couple of rest days so I'm hoping to catch up by using the first one, so just let me know if you want in.

Just in the doctor's surgery waiting to be seen. :)

So I've had a boil where my leg meets my groin. Doctor says it's deep and I have a hole about 1cm wide.

It's not hurting any more, but it is an open wound that needs to heal and because of where it is I don't think that sit ups are a good idea. :(
