It’s been a long time since I’ve posted anything here. Unfortunately, I’ve been away due to falling out of love with blogging and running and this shitstorm was compounded by losing my mother in 2021.
On Friday I posted an article on Reddit on the Exercise out of Depression subredditand I received a lot of positive feedback from it and realised I missed the accountability this blog had afforded me over the years, especially since I got sober back in 2015.
As a result of my grieving process, I stopped running and any notions of getting fit and well took a back seat. I have gained 50lbs and I’ve struggled to lose it as exercising in my old way had become incredibly difficult and I was seriously pissed off with myself for letting it get that bad. However, I have decided that it’s time for me to get back on track and reclaim my life.
Starting today, I will be blogging about my journey to lose this weight through a combination of running, healthy eating, and spirituality. I plan to document my progress here and share my experiences with all of you.
This time I won’t be just blogging about running, I’ll include some shit about indoor cycling, healthy eating, my attempts to poison myself with my own cooking and some spiritual and mental health shit.
The old content has all gone and I’m starting afresh.
Furthermore, I have decided to fundraise for the charity, Marie Curie, while on this journey.
Finally, I would like to introduce you to my long-lost identical twin cousin, M.C. Schnappchenheimer. He is currently cycling across the world and getting into all sorts of silly situations. He will be reporting his adventures and sharing his experiences with you as he manages to offend everyone with his silly shit.
Thank you for your support over the years and I hope that you will join me on this journey.
