Cyclopark Skatepark

We managed to get out to a skatepark for Karta’s first post-lockdown session of the summer. We met up with one of Karta’s buddies and spent the afternoon at Cyclopark near Gravesend.

The park is easy to get to, cheap to enter and has a very chilled vibe. We will be going back next week!

132.8KG

A slow start to my weight-loss journey. My biggest vice is eating food late at night. If I can force myself to break that habit, the weight should fall off of me. So, from today, I am only going to eat between the hours of 2 pm and 7pm – although I will continue to have my morning coffee with milk and sugar!

Here are the stats for today.

  • WEIGHT 132.8KG
  • BMI 39.7
  • BODY FAT 41.5%

The NHS website says that I should be aiming for a target weight of 85KG and a BMI of 25. I have a long way to go, but by my calculations, if I stick to my plan I should hit those goals in just over a year.

133KG

It is time for 85KG. I’m going to use a low-carb/fasting combo, mixed in with daily exercise.

Look out for random updates on my progress. Coronavirus doesn’t like fat people, and as a fat person it is up to me to minimise my chances of developing complications should I ever contract the virus. I don’t want to die hooked up to a ventilator. Paranoid? Maybe, but why should I take the risk?

I’ve been thinking about a new hobby, Bonsai growing is at the top of the list.

I am struggling to focus.

My meditation practice needs a little fine tuning. I’m still rubbing along somewhere between sleep and consciousness. It feels like I’m surfing on the boundary of reality.

Free Headspace Pro

I had an email from Headspace with the offer of a year of Headspace Pro, for free! As I am one the millions of people around the world that has lost work due to the coronavirus pandemic, I am eligible for the offer.

That is all, I’m off to meditate.

The Berry Box

The Berry Box

We have been taking regular walks across the fields to the Berry Box vending machine. The machine provides sizeable punnets of Raspberries and Strawberries at £1.50 a pop. Short of picking your own fruit I would suggest that this is the freshest fruit available in the area. Straight from the adjoining farm to the vending machine daily.

As I wind down my digital life, I have decided to turn my back on social media as a form of entertainment.

Being Buzzed by Apaches

I was sitting in the garden with my son when one of these flew low over the village? Not something you see every day, especially in deepest Kent.

Course Correction

This morning I woke with a realisation that I have lost direction. I have lost sight of my horizon and I need to make some changes to get myself back on the correct path.

Back to Cake

So, this lockdown and furlough thing got us thinking. What can we do from home that we’re good at?

Rhona can make awesome novelty cakes, and I am pretty good at marketing. Is this a match made in heaven? Stay tuned.

Digital Detox – Redux

As a family, we spend far too much time on our digital devices. That said, not all those devices are bad. Let me explain.

It is Sunday and we are nine weeks into this accursed lock down. Just lately the news seems to be filled with tales of overweight people being at a much higher risk of complications due to the coronavirus.
