Sunday, October 23, 2011      9 comments

I was up before my alarm this morning waking at 430am. I agonised about what to have for breakfast as I don't often run in the morning and if I do I usually have a spoonful on peanut butter and then head straight out. Since I had two hours to di... Read more
Race preperation
Saturday, October 22, 2011      4 comments

I have determined that being on call does not make for good race preperation, nor does windy weather. I got two calls last night, one at 845pm that got me out of bed but I wasn't asleep and the second call woke me up at 1am and scared the crap o... Read more

Bad day/good day
Monday, October 10, 2011      3 comments

Yesterday was the first day in 6 months that I haven't tracked food. I'm sure I ate too much, which isn't why I didn't track. I think it was because I spent the entire day doing our taxes which involved entering in 6 months of receipts and wadin... Read more

This morning we decided to go on a hike. Unfortunately we couldn't take the dogs and I was a bit too disorganised to get together a picnic but we had a great time. The place is about 20min away up in the state forest. There's a day area and camp... Read more

Much better day today. Got to do a cool surgery this morning, removed a fist sized lump from a horse's penis. I think there's probably still some tumour tissue there but I removed as much as possible. Hopefully the horse will cooperate with lett... Read more

Six months ago I knew I could lose weight and more importantly I was finally ready to make the right choices to do it. I was unfit and unhappy. I am forever grateful that I found sparkpeople, I was just after a calorie counter but this site prov... Read more
