April’s Best Efforts…

April’s been quite a pleasing month. Vice wise… Onto a fully raw diet now, but had to go back on the vape to do it. It seems at the moment it’s one or the other. I just crave bread, beans and potatoes as soon as i quit nicotine, and the cravings are intolerable so i read more »

March’s Best Efforts…

March was so, so much better than February. Vice wise… i’ve finally managed to quit the vape. Yes folks, no more nicotine. Admittedly, i put on a bit of weight as i allowed myself to eat a little bit of refined crap during the withdrawal phase, but i’m slowly getting my diet back together. It’s read more »

February’s Best Efforts…

February was not an easy month. Firstly, i hate winter and the cold weather. I just get really depressed not being able to get outside in an enjoyable way. Bring on Spring and Summer and sunshine and warmth. But i’ve managed to survive my first miserable winter without alcohol, so i’m well pleased with that. read more »

Burpee Challenge…

Here’s a idea for your cross training… I’m going to replace my push-up and squat sets with a set of each of the four burpees in the video, they look like a great all round exercise. I’ll give it a four week try out and see how i get on and report back in four read more »

January’s Best Efforts…

My crappy January… I started the year in a bit of a crap state. To be honest i still hadn’t allowed my body to recover from the 200 miler at the beginning of December properly, going back to pushing things too soon, when, with hindsight, i should have eased back into it a lot slower. read more »

Lowest Minimum Heart Rate…

I finally smash through the 40bpm barrier to get 38.62bpm. 😀 While doing a CO2 apnea table with one breath, 10 second, rests… Not bad for a 53 year old.

I’m Training for an Ironman…

October’s Best Efforts…

Well i think i’m very happy with my October’s efforts. Still off the alcohol, quit all the leftover vices i was still clinging onto as i said i would, but ended up back at the vape and cacao as i couldn’t stop craving and picking at cooked food and drinking coffee. So gave in on read more »

September’s Best Efforts…

Well, i’m still off the alcohol, but September was a difficult month. Mostly it’s gone fairly well, but the cooked food was creeping in a fair bit and coffee and cacao and vape have been taking more and more of a space up in my life. But i just accepted it until this last weekend read more »
