30 Nov 2012 – dog days are over

an early start today, so i managed a full friday session for a change (i.e. did the treadmill stuff and still had time for the weights). a bad day food-wise though – Movember fund-raising morning tea, and some weird eating patterns for the afternoon/evening… which is a shame, because the scales were telling me a […]

29 Nov 2012 – till i collapse

a late night on the computer could mean only one thing – late start to the day and no time for the outdoor session. which is just as well, considering we’ve got raging winds and torrential downpours at the moment (we’re finally having the winter weather we should have had a few months ago, except […]

first things first, there has been absolutely no net change weight-wise since I weighed myself a week ago. not entirely sure what’s going on because i’ve been really good with my eating. not going to worry about it – it could be a delayed impact from the focus on eating, or any one of many […]

27 Nov 2012 – power

building work down the road slashed today’s session in half – not sure exactly what happened, but the net result was a complete power outage at the gym. as i headed home there was a small herd of hard-hatted blokes stood around outside trying to fix whatever they’d broken. it’s a bit disconcerting having a […]

not too sure what’s going on with the sleep thing at the moment – in bed early last night as I was more than ready to sleep by 8:30. I then woke up pretty much every hour from about midnight onwards 🙁 finally got up just before 3am – had a good session at the […]

25 Nov 2012 – hello

after the excitement of a night out Friday, I got an early night last night, which translated to an early-ish start to Sunday. had a decent gym session, plenty of sweat and a good dose of hard work on the treadmill and rowing machine. first treadmill stint was done at 10km/h – but a combination […]

23 nov 2012: the fighting machine

another night of punctuated sleep, this time waking a couple of times. finally hauled myself out of bed at 3:45 or so – even as i wrote the session details out in the notebook i knew it was going to be cut short – better to do half a session than none i say! in […]

woke up around 2am and figured it was a bit early to hit the streets – woke again at 3:45ish, leaving just enough time to fit in a short jog and still catch the early bus… ended up doing just over 3.5km in just under 20 minutes – which surprised me when I calculated a […]

20 kilos in 20 weeks weight loss challenge

20 kilos in 20 weeks weight loss challenge

having spent a good few months hovering around the 119kg mark, i’ve decided it’s time to put some focus on diet for a bit. while there have been significant improvement in areas like body fat percentage, i really need to concentrate on dropping a few more kilos: firstly because i still need to break through […]

21 nov 2012: waking the witch

made it down the gym today and did a spot of fairly gentle rowing. didn’t push too hard, just eased back into things really. felt great afterwards – legs and joints are aching a bit now, and tiredness kicked in on the bus trip into the city. Summary Time got up (today): 03:45 Mood (1 […]
