    Just kidding. Don't worry, I am always very jolly when I kick someone in half.

    Well, Matt - imho you're on the right track, You know, you could eat more stuff like those near-zero calorie shirataki or yam flour noodles, if you can stomach their rather questionable texture. Of course you'll get very little nutritional value from them so you'll have to be careful.

    Good luck!

    dammit, this just got harder. I did so well today too. Salad sandwich lunch. Grilled pork chop on rice for dinner. Snacked on fruit. Drank only water and one glass of herbal tea. I did so well....but....dammit, this just got harder. Tomorrow night - close friend's birthday, dinner then clubbing. I can't miss it....one of the inner circle. Shit. Will be very hard to not drink. Very hard. At least I can go to boxing first I guess. Thursday night - my company is doing the launch of a new bar and restaurant. I've been roped into MCing it. Very hard to not drink at the opening of a cocktail lounge, very hard to eat healthy at the opening of a fine dining Chinese place, esp when it is your client AND it clashes with boxing, can't go. Then it is the birthday of another mate, held in an expat bar. Not one of my besties, but my absence would be conspicuous. Argh.
    it's fucking Australia Day today! Everyone keeps inviting me for beer and barbecues. It's like God is teasing me with His sausage and calling on Aussie pride and free beer as extra incentives. Must. Be. Strong.

    What's your goal?

    hard to say - the most important thing is to be able to sustain it for 20 years, that is my stratigic goal. I have set a fee specific physical tasks that I want to achieve - run 10 km in an hour without it being too difficult, do 100 one arm swing and overhead presses with a 24 kilo kettlebell, squat 300 pounds for 8 reps X 3 sets. I feel that if I can comfortably do all of these things, I can sustain the body size and shape for years or decades.

    in terms of weight, I am hoping to settle at under 180 pounds - 75-85 kilo.

    ok basically navigated the day successfully.

    Avoided all Australia Day festivities. Pled headache and ducked out on friend's birthday at Lush. Feel a bit bad, but am buying him lunch tomorrow to make it up to him.

    Lunch was a 3 course set with the PR faculty head of a university here. Had tomato soup with seafood for appetiser and penne pasta for main. Not too bad. A little carb heavy, but not a lot of fat. It came with apple crumble and ice cream desert, I'll admit to cheating a little and having a couple of spoonfuls of the apple crumble, left the icecream well alone.

    Had a meeting downstairs from my gym, got done at 4.30 so joined the stretching class, then boxing. Sore as hell from lifting yesterday, so I was pretty useless at boxing, but hey, still burned more calories than I would have by coming home and saying 'im too sore to go'.

    Dinner - grilled tuna and vegetables.

    Drank water all day too (other than my morning ca phe sua da, which is pretty calorie heavy, but fuck it, it's my only indulgence, and kickstarts me most days).

    Imma call it a success. Early night now, try and run in the morning, and lift again in the evening.

    2 days down.....tomorrow a low risk day - nothing major going on either socially or professionally. Thursday trickier.

    woke up early, ran 5kms (took me 27 minutes, is that decent for someone who basically never runs?)

    Had a breakfast meeting at 8 at a place best known for its grease, so I skipped eating and just had some tea. Got to office and had breakfast of Corn Flakes in skim milk. Lunch at the sandwich bar again (tuna salad sandwich, side was salad). Aside from my morning coffee and the tea with my client, have so far drank only water. Forgot my gym gear though, had planned to lift tonight....guess I'll drop in home, get changed and head out again...

    Certainly, while still leaving a good base for improvement. [​IMG]

    I have been running that distance and about that speed for almost a year now. I have no desire to run any faster or farther than that. [​IMG]

    you know, when I wrote this, I thought 'I bet this bites me in the ass' I went to Cambodia with a good friend on the weekend, he's still traveling (going all over the place for about 5 weeks). His superawesome Japanese gf stayed behind as she struggles to get a night off work, let alone a week or five. Cos she works the way she does, she kinda has no friends, which sucks, cos she is really one of the coolest people we know. Anyhow, last night she got the night off and called me and my best friend out for dinner (cos she really knows very few ppl other than her bf's friends). I go meet her, Frenchy is stuck in the studio (my bestie is a music producer from France) so have dinner with her at a Jap hotpot place. She gets sulky cos I won't drink and she wants to 'kampai' cos this is the first night she has had off work all year, she signed her biggest ever contract that morning, and finally resolved some legal issues that had been plaguing her company. She's so sweet and also kinda down at the moment that you can't really say no to her, so I order a beer. I do my best to not drink it (probably had a quarter of it, and kept filling her glass up from my bottle) but still...I broke No Drinking Rule. Fail 1. She orders for us in Japanese, I look up at a table full of fried chicken. I ate a bit...probably like 3 nuggets worth. Dammit. Fail 2. The rest was super healthy - steamed pork/chicken/vegetables. Finish dinner, her and I head over to meet Frenchy for frozen yogurt. Had a small non-fat blended with fruit, so at least I wasn't throwing chocolate chips on there, but still: Fail 3. Dammit. At least I talked her into kancho-ing Frenchy. Plus today (Thurs) I can't work out...client event where I am opening a restaurant and a bar. Will be very hard to duck food and alcohol and play host on this one....

    This more than makes up for all 3 fails.

    So, you do realize that liquor doesn't have any carbs right? I did locarb and just cut out beer and wine, lost 35 lbs. Repeat after me, "I'll have a dry Sapphire martini, stirred, with a twist." And you know what, I haven't looked back [​IMG]

    got a bunch of calories though, right?

    vodka shot ~50 calories
    whisky shot 50-60
    rum about 60
    gin 50-60

    ...and that is before the mixers.
