Tag Archives: Britain’s Biggest Loser

Iron Maiden

25 Jan

Arrived home quite stressed about a story last night and initially wanted to sit by the phone and wait for it to ring so that I knew it was going to be OK.

With this the plan I settled down on the sofa and flicked the TV on to find Britain’s Biggest Loser, a show which pits a gang of self-confessed fatties against each other in an unsustainable and morally dubious weight-loss competition.

Ethics aside, I couldn’t help but be impressed by the contestants who are all enormous and for whom exercising must feel like torture as they carry so much weight because they were really, really trying hard as they lumbered up steps and puffed away on the rowing machine.

Ten minutes later I felt so guilty I had my trainers on and was out the door. If Britain’s biggest losers can go for a jog then so can this Janathoner.

I kept it short – only 1.3 miles because I was stressing the phone would go while I was out, but I think they were fast because of this.

Itunes gremlins sometimes decide to transfer a playlist belonging to RAF Brother onto my iphone and last night this was the case, the result being that I was accompanied in my efforts by Iron Maiden.

The mood I was in, I quite enjoyed it and also it reminded me of him and what a good egg he is. In that vein I then thought “and boyfriend isn’t bad either and what a lot of lovely friends and running buddies I have and aren’t I lucky not to be a fattie and have my health and life’s not that bad after all.”

By which time I arrived back home, stretched, showered, took the phone call, realised everything was fine and I was worrying about nothing and went to bed happy, another Janathon day done.
