I had my first
the other night. I'm not sure that is a good thing, I think I need to spend more time away from the computer. Anyhoo, in my dream
HuisyG and I were walking to work just chewing the fat, as one does, although at some point the dream morphed but I'm not going to blog the details of that part of the dream
that concerns a certain AnD artist (who actually hasn't blogged this year - tsk tsk).
, some of you are like me - on a mission to shed some kilos. Bloody hell it's hard. One wouldn't believe that several years ago I did the Coast to Coast (from Kumara on the West Coast to Sumner on the East Coast, South Island - run, bike and kayak 243 km across the Southern Alps) and the Kepler Challenge (60 km mountain run). I was really fit and healthy and I let myself go kicks self hard Here are some photos of these events. I will not post photos of my worst weight moment until I have shed it all. I must add that I started training for these events with no athletic history at all so my goal was merely to plod at the back and finish them - which I acheived
The Kepler Challenge, Dec 1998 - actually at this point, most of us are walking and just run past the camera guy
The Coast to Coast, Feb 2000
that's my finish line beer he is holding.
Anyhoo I am trying to get back into shape when last year I plateaued. Bob the Biggest Loser guru says "you have to eat to lose weight" - he's worth marrying for that sentiment alone. So I am not starving myself - and I never will coz that is
stupid. But I am going to have to start drinking trim milk in my tea sob, it's just not the same and as from today no alcohol (cept for my birthday which is later this month). I grew up on beer and just love it but gave it away when I first started on my skinny mission. Now I'm going to have to give wine and spirits a miss too.
Mind you my liver will probably thank me for it
. Here is my cousin and myself enjoying a cold brew in the seventies. (I'm on the left)
Hope y'all enjoying the weekend
oh and, help fight the Dark Side
