After 6 days writing this blog i have found myself onto the Google listings, search “real fat boy run” or “the real run fat boy run” among others and there i am!! Brilliant!! Which means i should now start to receive some organic traffic to the blog, which is the only way it will grow. Starting on the 23rd April my view numbers have gone; 6, 15, 96, 131, 102 and today so far its on 20. I cant really argue with that can i…..?

Today is a recovery mission to get back friendly with my girlfriend, we had a bit of a tiff last night. You don’t need to know the details, but its a long running disagreement between us that usually ends with the same result, me getting a smack!!  To be honest i think she is scared of me losing the 6 stone, being fit to die for and attracting the glares of many more women folk… But i might be wrong so don’t tell her i said that!! I must still be in the bad books because its 1.17pm and i still haven’t had any dinner…..

Depending on how well you know me, you will either be happy or upset to know that the Vietnamese River Cobbler (Pongas) did not kill me. BUT…. I did have my appendix out 3 weeks ago and my other half still thinks its a good idea to punch me square in the belly button. So i do have a pain there this morning, time will tell if its the fish of little motorbikes or punch of little girlfriend. Her excuse is that I’m tall and she is not (i am 6ft 6 and weigh 22 stone, she is 5ft 1 and weighs 6 stone) so when she punches me its the only place she can reach, I’m yet to be convinced. But giving the final words to the fish..It was very nice!

15 days to no more cigarettes and my legs moving for more than a trip to the fridge….

2 slices of toast, a ham sandwich and for tea……………….. Dirty Vietnamese fish apparently, River Cobbler or to give it its proper name Pangas Pangasius, straight from the land of little motorbikes. Bought from Tesco you wouldn’t think anything of it but if you google River Cobbler you will get a hundred sites saying that it has caused illnesses including sickness and stomach cramps. Apparently they are injected with hormones derived from urine… Sound great don’t they. I will not fall for food propaganda, so in for a penny in for a pound, if there are no posts after tomorrow you now know why, wish me luck!!

Maltesers or Skittles? An 8 year old knows, “if you don’t get me skittles ill kill you dead”. Harsh words for someone who also likes Maltesers dont ya think!! So out the bath and into clothes, that never makes sense to me, bath – shorts – tv and nothing else…. Shower and out, fair enough but not bath! Stick my ipod on, nothing gets me to the shop better that Witchita Lineman, although i did walk!! Why am i telling you about my trip to the shop? Because after spending a fiver (£5) on rubbish, its “would you like a carrier bag? 5p please!” Ouch!!!! I never have and never will agree with paying for sodding carrier bags!! Am i tight??? As i write this, Watchdog is on in the back groud, i think they should have something on about the price of carrier bags!!

16 days till i stop smoking and start moving my legs, i have lost nearly 2 stone since i came out of hospital so I’m sure it will start to come off quite nicely when i actually start moving……
