October 2017

not just rowing

Had a good weekend, mostly house stuff – making some renovations that I might post seperately at a later date.
Did an hour of R18 on Sunday, but I felt so wasted it turned out I was going at a slower pace than I had for the last 18 months.

Made a nice dinner with mashed potatoes, vegies and a mushroom sauce on Saturday. Was quite nice – hardly miss meat at all (he says after 1 week)
We did have a slight cheat day on Sunday though. We had a second breakfast at 12:00 which turned out more like a brunch (the kids joined us, having just got up)

I must have eaten more than I wanted, as I did manage to put on a few pounds over Saturday on the scales… no comment

Yesterday was back at work though, so no distractions. We even went to the gym for a weight session, where I even managed to up the weight on a few excersizes.

This morning the scales reported that I was back on track. I do need to make sure that the weight loss isn’t too quick tho.

Start of Diet: 15.10.2017
Start weight: 104kg

Actual weight 97,7kg

Garmin Index Smart Scales..

so I bought some scales…
unfortunately i didn’t approve the purchae beforehand with the wife
– so it was the wrong colour – the new ones are on the way…

but back on topic. They do work fine – wlan connection updates automatically to the garmin connect..
I did however discover one bug – I noticed that the weight recorded differed from that I saw on the scales.
It turns out that the value from garmin watches overwrites or averages the weight out.
Well I’ve deleted the value that was in there, and I guess we will see if that fixed the problem or not.

The GAT diet is still ongoing (day 2) – looking for some good recipes for the weekend 🙂

A new Era…well maybe

I haven’t updated the site in what feels like years, mostly because I didn’t have anything spectacular to post.
Training took a dip with me starting a new job and time becoming unavailable. Added to this, some health problems and marzipan meant I wasn’t in a nice place.

I’ve started to look at a new approach to my diet. Having recently being operated on both knees and having the meniscur and some cartlidge removed, meant having a little athritic pain, when doing certain excersizes.

My wife having similar difficulties (Volleyball/Skiing injuries), got hold of a book about healing athritus which pointed us towards the GAT diet.

Basically, it relates to the fact that we have been eating wrong and the Ph level of the water in our bosied is acidy.
By eating more basic foods/ regional and seasonal we can improve this, put our body back in balance and “hey presto” – no more pain …..

Well, early days for this call sign. After two days fasting and this being my second day on the diet i’m still getting used to it all.

I will try and update the blog and write any finding here.

Oh.. one good thing so far.

Lost about 5kg since 15.10 (5 days) from fasting….watch it bounce back though
