Thursday, November 07, 2013      0 comments

It's been 7 weeks now since I started working out consistently. Five more weeks to go. I feel as if I have already nailed it. My goal was to exercise hard and consistently at least 4 days a week. Emphasis on hard. Even if I do 20 minutes , it... Read more
I cut my nails!

Ok, so that may not seem like such a wonderful thing to some. But to me it's a serious measure of my commitment to my program. You see, I have the weakest softest nails known to men. They actually bend over backwards without causing me pain. Ju... Read more

Today I actually ran the distance. I still can't believe it though. And I'm not as dead as I thought I would be. Amazing that this overweight - make that obese if I take my BMI- body can run 10 whole kays! Wow! Ok, so maybe the pace was sometime... Read more

After a year away ( and 10kg heavier) I'm back again. Don't ask me what happened on the way to heaven. I've spent the whole year struggling to lose and only gaining. It has never been this hard before. I think the years are finally catching up. ... Read more

Fat Fast day 4
Friday, May 11, 2012      1 comments

Food is amazing. It fills us up, it nourishes us, gives us energy. But most importantly, at least for me, it makes us feel better. Which I suppose is the reason I'm in this battle with my weight in the first place. I would say today was the hard... Read more
Fat Fast day 3

Today I noted 2 big positives since I started the fast. The first is that I slept. The. Whole. Night. Most people do this every day without too much prompting. Not me. If I get 5 hours total sleep in one night I count myself very lucky. So clock... Read more

Day 2 went quite well, not much hunger except in the early evening when I thought I was going to throw in the towel. I had a long hot shower to distract me. By the time I got out the hunger pangs were gone. Thats the thing about fasting. I am le... Read more
Fat Fast Day 1
Tuesday, May 08, 2012      1 comments

I had a very interesting day today. It's quite strange to go without food for most of the day and yet not feel hungry. At least, not overwhelmingly so. Just short, almost pleasant pangs that I found easy to ignore. It felt a lot like a first da... Read more

I’m sitting in a plane somewhere above Tanzania on my way to Mombasa Kenya for a quick one day audit. Story of my life. I think I spend roughly one quarter of my life en-route to somewhere. Like I spent 5 hours yesterday driving from Swaziland ... Read more
Unmerry Christmas
Sunday, December 25, 2011      2 comments

I've managed to walk and jog practically everyday for the past 12 days. My motivation? Getting out of the house before I say something I'll regret to DH. I'm just sick of the silent treatment. I'm this close to telling him where to get off. Men ... Read more
Old year resolutions
Sunday, November 27, 2011      1 comments

The old year is almost out and it seems a good time to make some resolutions. I find “new year” resolutions so stressful, and I’ve almost always broken them before Valentine’s Day. So why not ‘old year’ resolutions? Things I want to achieve befo... Read more
