The Dark Heart of Africa

I'm an Aussie geo who has been working as an expat in Africa for longer than I care to remember, time just seems to fly as you're having fun right?! I've worked in Ghana, Mali, Guinea and some other West African countries, and am now based in the Democratic Republic of the Congo in Central Africa.

My Goals:
My first goal is to lose 10kgs in the next 20 weeks, I figure slow and steady wins the race.....

I also need to drop my cholesterol a wee bit as it was just over the limit for normal in my last annual checkup pre-Xmas.

My Program:
I am going to basically get off my you-know-what and move more.

The Master Plan is to move more and watch my calorie intake. So will be doing cardio 6 days a week for at least 30 mins/day, and also 30 mins of weight training 3 times a week.

Hi Jane! I noticed that you have stopped participating on your team and decided to help you out. I think your team is a wonderful concept, it's one that I appreciate. I hope you come back to share the leadership. I have just started but I know firsthand how difficult it is to lose weight and maintain health in the tropic. I live in Puerto Rico. Your life and work sounds so interesting! emoticon

Hi, I left the expats when there seemed no interest. We have been in Mexico 4 years now and it has its ups and downs but on the whole we love it
