Feet up!

The Rock Show, Rock On!

Being of a certain age my Friday night radio listening used to revolve around the late Tommy Vance's Friday Rock Show, which I'd invariably tape and re-visit during the week, rather like a late 70s/early 80s style podcast. Now I'm listening to Ewan's rock podcasts every Friday on the Podcast Network, Ewan seems to variously title it TPN Rock, or just "The Rock Show". Whatever, it's all good to me.

He's discovering new bands that I've never heard of, which sounds grim at first, but the majority are superb and I've not heard a truly duff one yet. If you're into pretty much any genre of rock music I'd suggest giving Ewan's rock music podcast a few listens.

Week 1 of Lard Watch

Mixed results after the first week, some progress, but not quite as much as hoped for, and the exercise programme hasn't fully kicked off yet.

Anyway vital figures are, current loss 1kg, so 12kg to go.

The Excel charts are reporting a trend of 0.6kg loss, but the trend is following a longer term moving average so it hasn't quite tipped onto the downslope yet. Given that I had 3 days eating/drinking more than planned I'm pretty happy with this week, next week's goal is a further 2kg.

Guilty of trying to run a race

The US non-GP proved at least one thing, that when it comes to creating a FIAsco the FIA are in a league of their own.

Because of this we've gone into mourning on Fun-1 abandoning our apparantly traditional scarlet colour scheme for a fetching tone of funereal charcoal.

Not content with severely dropping the ball 2 weeks ago, the FIA have now decreed the teams to be guilty, well we've scratched our heads and we can think of three things they're guilty of, but it's not what the FIA's comedians have come up with.

Battle of the bulge

The bulge being my waistline.

A couple of months back I set myself a target of trimming off 10kg by midsummer, I'd have been happy with 5kg and it would have reversed the Xmas period gain that I've not shed this year, but 10kg seemed acheivable and would have been good for my long term health etc. I didn't plan any particularly serious exercise or diet, I was just trying to do a little more of the former and cut back overall on the latter. So how's it progressing? Pretty poorly to be honest, which is why I'm blogging about it, sure I can do many more situps and pressups than when I started, and the morning run to the station has become faster, but the goal is now 13kg away. Therefore something more drastic is called for.

Hence my blogging about it, I'm going to post a weekly update in here to shame myself in public to keep off the pies and booze. Exercise wise I'm going to be more rigourous and disciplined, and I'm currently working out a timetable for activities I can fit in around my day.

I'm using the Hackers' Diet for dietary assistance, so expect to see plenty of charts etc later. Atkins sounds tempting but a little too extreme for my omnivorous tastes.

So today is Day 1, the goal is 13kg away, lets see how much closer it will be next week!
