Day 275

February 23, 2011 in Uncategorized

Life quest has proven to be one of the most difficult things I have ever attempted. I lost 13 kg’s in les than a 100 days and took the almost next 200 days to gain every one kg back!

Its sad, frustrating and just downright disappointing. How I wished I could just buckle down, stay motivated and focused. But alas that did not happen, that was not part of my destiny.

How does one get back on the horse? I have asked that question now already for 6 months and have made numerous plans, as you can see in the history of my post

Truth be told I don’t know. Al i know is that I do not want to be overweight, feel sluggish and look bad any longer. I want to gain my life,

So we are back to square one. Some things did help, especially my daily accountability. Maybe i should start at the beginning, re-read my own old post!

Day 269

February 16, 2011 in Uncategorized

Ok so much things are up to a stand still. My weightless included. I am really struggling to put myself back in the process and success I had last year. In 269 days I managed to loose 13 kg’s and gain 11! So my net loss is a mere 2 kg’s

I am working towards a new goal, but the ultimate for 2011 stays I need to loose 20 kg’s, I don’t know how, i can revert back to my plan of last year, but for some reason that was not sustainable. And that’s my biggest problem! Finding an eating plan and an exercise plan that is sustainable over the long hall!

Ill keep you posted!

February 8, 2011 in Uncategorized

Ok so my daily accountability is shot….but i managed to loose about a Kg by only concentrating on what I eat. I have slowly started exercising again by playing some sports, but the upcoming op on my hernia is now getting closer…

day 252 – the update

January 31, 2011 in Uncategorized

Hi everyone

Yes its another week and i hope you all rested well over the weekend.

To update I was at the specialist on Thursday and we will have to operate. This means about two weeks away from work and a total of about a month of rest before one can start exercising again.

I have no idea where my work schedule will accommodate this, but luckily my boss took the news well and supports my decision.

For now i still need to loose weight and will start exercising again. The doctor told me now amount or type of exercise can do anything to the hernia.

So i need a plan, and that is simple. 5 steps:

  1. Eat smaller healthier portions
  2. If I cheat do so in type and not quantity
  3. Get moving at least 4 times a week
  4. Watch what you drink. Don’t need the empty calories
  5. Daily accountability

This means you will read up on me much more often again

So for now its getting back in the game…

Day 246

January 25, 2011 in Uncategorized

Another week is done and dusted.

On my side we are still keeping a close eye on what i eat and drink. Its been a tough couple of months with my hiatal hernia, but I am seeing the doc Thursday. I believe the next step would be to consider an operation.

Anyhow this is hampering my exercise planning, but i am looking to play sports and have fun. On the diet side we will just eat right. Its not that difficult is it?

January 18, 2011 in Uncategorized

Hi friends


I can slowly but surely feel the old pants loosing a bit again. I have only been watching what I am eating until I see the hiatal hernia expert. It would have been today but due to unforeseen strategic session this week I will only see the doc next week Thursday.


Anyhow i have some fitness goals for the year which include playing a racketlon tournament, starting and training in a martial arts and also returning to competitive club cricket in October.


But for now it a waiting game

Day 232 – stil here…

January 11, 2011 in Uncategorized

Hi everyone

We are still going on this side, working my butt of…where was the rest?

Anyhow at this stage its just trying super hard to look at what I eat. From next week I will slowly start doing exercise, depending on the outcome of my doctors visit to a specialist dealing with hiatus hernias. I don’t want to strain it any further, cause frankly i no longer can take the pain…

DAy 226 – 90 kilo quest….

January 5, 2011 in Uncategorized

Its a new year! Can you believe it! 2011 is here!

Well today is my first day back on the job. I rested well, ate and drank far too much and can feel the old pants being far tighter!

So this year I have one quest:

The 90 kg quest. Its simple, I want to loose weight until i am 90 kg’s and then keep that weight between 90-95kg’s

That is it

Now i have no idea what i weigh now, frankly i do not give a dam. I will weigh in in 6 weeks time, so stay tuned.

I am super motivated, and know with the correct eating plan and exercise i will get to the goal in about 6-8 months time and then buckle down to maintain that weight.

I am also reverting to what worked before in daily accountability so be prepared to get bored out of your wits with my daily ramblings!

Everything will be “official” by next week Monday, but i am already starting to look at my diet, eating four-six smaller meals a day.

For now Stand Strong and have a wonderful 2011!

Day 212 – I am exercising again!

December 22, 2010 in Uncategorized

Ok so much of my ramblings and moans of last weeks entry fell on death ears and this time for the better! I woke up Monday morning and decided to just suck it up and start again. No quests for now, that we will leave for the new year, but I am watching what i eat and also doing HIIT cardio sessions to up my metabolism. No need to gain even more weight over the festive season!

I am finishing work tomorrow and cannot wait for a couple of days R&R.

If I don’t blog again before that, have a blessed festive season for you and your families.


DAY 205 – The work year is almost done…

December 15, 2010 in Uncategorized

As I said above the work year is almost done although my vacation only starts next week Thursday.


What diet and exercise is concerned I gave that up for the remaining of 2010. Yes I do not see this as a failure just as a reality. I just did not find the time, motivation and will to continue. I am not totally “cheating” and is still trying to control portion sizes, walk the dog and do some sort of exercise. Just not structured for now.


I will achieve my goals in 2011
