Not much to report

As the title suggests, it’s all quiet in Bentley Town.

I’ve had a couple of days off from the gym and running. I think the long run on Thursday took more out of me than I realised and a ‘light’ recovery session in the gym on Friday ended up being over two hours, oh and a three mile walk in the evening taking a ‘100 Amigos’ photo – Doh! I’ve also had quite a bit of muscular pain in my back and shoulders from a weights routine, so I thought it best to chilax.

I’ve been okay with food and I’ve maintained the ‘not eating after 8pm’, August mini project, so I’m not concerned that I’ve let things slide. It’s all a part of developing a ‘balanced’ approach to my life change. Remember, I’m not on a diet and it’s not all about losing weight. I am far ‘healthier’ today than I think I ever was and I’ve no plans to stop now. I WILL be in the gym tomorrow and hopefully I’m going to start having a proper look at nutrition.

Jan (my infinitely better half) said something funny to me yesterday. Apparently my head is looking smaller haha. I said, “surely you mean my face is looking thinner babes.” “No,” she said, “your head is smaller.” I laughed my (smaller) head off it was that funny. I guess it’s true though right? If you lose weight around your face and skull, your head will become smaller, just like your stomach or your thighs. Priceless observation by Mrs B.

Well, believe it or not, “th th th that’s all folks!!”

Catch you all tomorrow. Finish this sentence for me, “I Can…”

Adios amigos,

Paul (Kracker)



About paulbentley

My name is Paul Bentley and I started my blog in May 2011. I live in Liverpool in the North West of England, UK – I have always had ‘issues’ with my weight! When I got to 27st 13lbs (177kgs or 391lbs) I finally decided that ‘enough is enough’ and I need to make changes. As part of the process I decided I need to make myself accountable, so I’ve decided to be accountable to you. Thanks for offering ;-)

    Love the wisdom you are using to take it easy and not feeling obligated to do something. Love the photos from 101 Amigos!

  2. Sometimes the quiet days are needed! Just wish I could convince myself that 🙂

  3. Sounds like you needed and deserved the rest.
