Feb 29 2012: Wednesday Like a River

4:15am start to the day again, bit of a sluggish start which was probably due to the bike ride last night. The bike ride also seems to have affected overall energy and performance in the gym. Reasonable I guess – the body can only take so much! Food: Breakfast: 1 slice dry toast with vegemite […]

Feb 28 2012: Goodbye Ruby Tuesday

4:15am start to the day, up and out to the gym happily and willingly, a decent session and a nice stroll by the river once I got to Perth. This is rapidly becoming my definition of a GREAT day. Food: Breakfast: 1 slice dry toast with vegemite (pre-gym) 2 weetbix and skim milk Mid-morning: Banana, […]

Feb 27 2012: Week 5

Feb 27 2012: Week 5

Wow, 4 weeks have flown by and so much has changed already. It’s going to be really exciting seeing the results of another 10 weeks of the Walkabout Wellness Weightloss Challenge, let alone what happens beyond that! In the short term though, things got a little tougher today, with exercises being ramped up from 10 […]

Feb 26 2012: weigh-in day

Feb 26 2012: weigh-in day

Had a nice slow start to the day as it was a non-gym day. Up about 7:30am or so, a sluggish start was remedied with a gentle walk with the dog. Have a weigh-in and progress check at the Walkabout Wellness gym today; can’t wait to find out what progress has been made! Food: Breakfast: […]

Feb 25 2012: rest day, what rest day?

Feb 25 2012: rest day, what rest day?

Due to tomorrow being a 12-Week-Weightloss-Challenge weigh-in and assessment day, I’ve swapped my rest day over, making tomorrow (Sunday) the “rest” day and today a normal gym day. With things like a 1km row and 1km run/walk, tomorrow won’t provide much of a rest lol Food: Breakfast: 1 slice dry toast with vegemite (pre-gym) microwaved […]

Feb 24 2012: Later Still!

Feb 24 2012: Later Still!

Funny how perceptions can change; I used to consider getting up at 8am (on a weekday) or 10pm (at the weekend) as getting up late. After another late night (11:15pm ish) I woke up at 4:45am and considered THAT to be late. I did the gym as per usual (no skipping that for sure!) and […]

Feb 23 2012: Running Late

Despite being up at 4am, I somehow managed to miss my usual bus by a minute or so. I therefore took an alternative route into the office (so I could still be here around 7) which meant missing out on the riverside walk. Not entirely happy about that – however these things happen and I’ve […]

Feb 22 2012:  Day 30!

Feb 22 2012: Day 30!

Today is a special day – it’s the 30th day of writing daily journal entries, and therefore MORE than 30 days of doing daily exercise and watching the diet. What’s so special about this? Well, “they” usually say it takes at least 30 days for new habits to establish themselves, which means I’m well on […]

add, remove, set a goal

add, remove, set a goal

One of the things that Britt has got me doing, in addition to the actual exercise, activity and diet stuff, is to “add something, remove something and set a goal” on a weekly basis. This has proven to be quite useful, and the add/remove is essentially a version of “getting rid of stuff that’s holding […]

Feb 21 2012: Back in the Groove

Raring to go again this morning, determined to have a more positive gym session than yesteday. Mission accomplished with the minor exception of push-ups. I manged exactly zero full(toe) push-ups today. Gotta crack that one. Food: Breakfast: 1 slice dry toast with vegemite (pre-gym) 2 mutigrain weetbix and skim milk Mid-morning: Banana, walnuts, almonds, sunflower […]
