I’m not going to lie to you folks, I haven’t missed this rain and I am very ready for a couple of days off after what has been a tiring week. I’m not going to be posting a long one today, sometimes short and sweet is the best way to go and what we have time for!
I had this written for Friday, but The Killers ran a lot later than expected, so it’s a little late posting, sorry guys!
Fat Friday is a weekly blog post tracking my weight loss and fitness journey, used to keep myself accountable, keep a record of my progress, and share hints & tips that have helped me. To track my progress, or read my previous entries, click here.

I was in work last weekend for the first time in a little while, and I have to say it was odd to be in the office on a Saturday and Sunday, but then have a day off on Monday. I’ve had quite a full on week at work,I’ve done some overtime and made a lot of bookings and I’m starting to understand sales, and I’ve just been in a lot over the nice weather. The office embraced football fever and went all out, and although we were knocked out on Wednesday, it was nice to see everyone coming together.
I re-discovered an old trick this week and went to the gym when the sport was on. I used to do this many years ago when the Champions League was on ITV, so this week I have taken advantage of the screens at the gym and enjoyed watching the tennis and World Cup from the treadmill and exercise bike. I even ventured to the (unsurprisingly) empty gym during the first half of England’s semi-final. Maybe if I’d stayed the whole match….well done lads!
Aside from that, bits and bobs have happened this week, I’ve found my appetite to be a little less now as the heat and humidity has hit a constant level. We’ve had lots of burrito bowls, ice cream, and healthy snacks this week, it’s felt quite summery, and I largely resisted the snacks that were on offer at work for the football!
WEIGHT: This week: -3lb Total: -32lb

I’m going to see The Killers at The Macron Stadium in Bolton tonight, so naturally the first time it’s properly rained in the UK would be when Emma and I are going to an outdoor gig. Sigh.
*update* We went, it was dry, it was brilliant, it was a long night and I will tell you all about it next week.
