I can now jog for 12 minutes without stopping. This isn't a lot, but it's an improvement.
My weight steadily increased since I changed jobs in late 2017 and was quite ridiculous by this time last year. I started working on it and lost a stone. Then my birthday came and I relaxed my own calories/exercise restrictions and never really re-implemented them until I realised how much progress I'd lost by the end of December, so I've set myself new exercise goals which are working well.
I've decided to come back to LJ. It fell out of favour for being bought by Russians but I miss it. The community that was once here is probably lost, but as a record of self Facebook has never been up to the job. So I'm going to try updating more here and see what happens.
