Weigh In

Posted November 27 by John Birmingham

Dropped 2.3 kgs in six days.

Still drank some beer and ate a lot of barbecue.

Body feels like I've been beaten with extension cords.

Getting regular beatings from disgruntled Harvey Norman employees appears to be a rather extreme way to lose weight. On the other hand it does appear to work.

I think you'll find that Harvey Norman has sales drones, not employees.

Drinking water helps (1.5-2 litres a day), as does swimming. And a trip to the sauna to tie it all up.

John Birmingham ducks in to say...

My local gym has a lap pool which I normally dive into after a work out. I used to live in an apartment with a sauna. It was awesome. But that's a thousand miles and thirty years away now.

when I lived in Northern suburbs of Brisbane, some of the car parks outside supermarkets felt like a sauna in January . These were simpler times.

ah the pleasures of youth :)

Beer and bbq - proper nutrition and hydration is important!

Nothing like a post-beating hangover. Good times.

2nd week in a row played a full game of oztag without subbing off. Because we had no subs.
Have progressed from crawling to shuffling on a Wednesday.

I swam a thousand yards today, which is double what I normally swim. Building towards one mile and beyond.

No weight loss yet, drank anyway.

Hey Murph. Swimming is the best. Shame I live rural, the nearest pool is some half hour away. Been running instead for the past couple of months. At first I used my old shoes from overseas, they still had moon dust in the crevices. Finally threw them away and bought new pair. Slight weight loss, definite build-up of endurance.

Never been much of a runner. The foot doctor this past week found a bone spur on one of my heels and told me I had high arches. He said that explained the chronic shin splints I had in the Army.

So if I want land based cardio it generally means breaking out the bicycle.

Feeling inspired now.
I like the idea of increased exercise and decreased caloric intake...
Let's see how it goes.

John Birmingham has opinions thus...

Posted November 29
Haha. Yeah. A friend asked me how I was doing it. I said, "Eating less than I want, and exercising more than I feel like."

I've started taking the dog for a walk/run in the morning with a pack with 5kg in it... I'll build the weight and distance up over the next few weeks.

My dog used to be really keen to go for a walk with me, as I'd usually let him off the leash for a while. Now I'm running and making him stay with me, he is less thrilled.

You guys are making me feel very bad about my sedentary lifestyle. I plan top put the Gin bottle further away in future and crush all limes by hand. That should do it.

My fitness regime, pisspoor as it was, has now gone completely out the window. Shingles. What a bastard of a virus!! But it didn't stop me eating so its a lose-lose scenario. So much for getting shirts off on Fraser in January, and the doctor is not happy as his instructions were to lose 10, not put on 2.
