Day 3 of 65 Feedback

day #3

Stuff I put in my mouth

Lemon juice with water
3 boiled eggs for lunch
Dinner - a nice leafy salad, with tomatoes, feta cheese, red onions and about 200g of grilled Springbok. - very nice, very filling, drizzled with some lemon juice and olive oil.
Snack - had about 60g of cream cheese
All and all - a very good eating day.

Stuff that made me sweat

Nothing, unfortunately, squash partners cancelled on me. It was freeing, I was lazy.

Other stuff

Nothing much, busy day at work, parents are back from there overseas trip, wife is a little under the weather. Looking forward to getting a workout in tonight. Very happy with the way I am eating, feeling full, but healthy full, and not rammed full of carbs full. Bought a multivitamin to make sure I still get in what I need to get in!

Day 2 of 65 feedback

Day two then...and here is the feedback

Stuff I put in my mouth

Not a lot of stuff at all. 
Had some biltong again.
Had some droewors again.
Had 1 avo for an early dinner around 18:30 - I am trying to eat dinner before 19:00
Avo had some lemon juice, black pepper, and cayenne pepper - was good
Had water
Had more water
Then had some more water with some fresh lemon juice
It was a very low cal day!

Stuff that made me sweat

Had a 45 minute squash game again, this time on the B court, which is further away from the entrance. I also kept my top on and definitely had more of  a workout than Monday night. It is not a lot, but it is much more than doing nothing. As soon as this weather changes I'll start walking/running again.

Other stuff

It is still freezing, when I left squash last night it was 2 degrees, driving to work this morning it was minus 3 degrees. Not helping much with getting active and outside. Hopefully it passes by tomorrow and we will start having warmer days. I downloaded that C25K app, that takes you from the couch to 5km in about 10 weeks, and I am looking forward to that. 


Day 1 of 65 feedback

Monday 7 July 2014 feedback

Weigh in - 110.5 kg

Did not have much to eat as I was still pretty stuffed from a huge late Sunday lunch.

Had only a bit of biltong and about 3 litres of water.

Played squash for 45 minutes. Got some blood flowing, and was a nice workout. Not to extreme though and hoping to do more tonight, maybe a jog before the squash.

Until tomorrow then.



Good news, bad news, and 65 days

Bad news - I completely fell of the bus. It has been hunting trips, work trips, Cape Town trips, birthdays, parties, sickness, freezing weather, and many more stupid, inexcusable excuses.

Bottom line - I got down to 103.4 kg's. Then ballooned back to 110.5kg's. That was the official weigh in Monday morning 8 July.

Good news - I am back at it, drinking water, working out, eating right, sleeping more, and ready to dip below 100kg's.


That is what is left. That is all.

Roughly 10 weeks.

I want to drop that 10 kilos, at least.

I will do it. I have to do it. I will get this done.


  1. Try and blog every day - I do better when I blog, it keeps me motivated, and helps to show me what I am doing, also, I feel like shit every time I pick up weight and need to document it, and I feel great every time I loose weight and get to document it.
  2. Go high protein, veg, and no carb, low carb all the way. This is by far the best way for me to loose weight, and I have seen this time and time again, the problem is, when I hit the carbs, I tens to pick it all up again, so lifestyle change, not diet.
  3. Drink Whiskey and water when I have to drink - no beers, or odd brandy and cokes, whiskey and water.
  4. 1 Workout every day except rest days.
  5. Weigh in every Monday where possible
  6. Stay positive, enjoy it, be creative with the food and workouts, do not get bored.
  7. Water, water, water.
Until tomorrow then
