Well here is My 5 Year Story and my 7 week update. (for anyone who has time for a read) May 2016: I hit the heaviest (99kg/218 pounds) and widest (waist 113cm/44.5 inches) I have ever been in my life. Partially, deliberately. I had written a short film called Not Yet about a guy who […]Read More My 5 Year Story
Sorry it’s late. Will talk about that in the next Blog. One of my inspirations to get started on this journey was seeing a photo my son took a photo of me using his VR headset back in December 2019. It took until late Feb 2020 to start but I DID start. At the end […]Read More June, 4 Month, JB and Me Update.
Still moving in the right direction. Most of the time. I missed my Move Ring target of 2,500 kilojoules (598 calories) 6 times, all in the last half of the month. Twice I didn’t even hit last month’s 2,000 kilojoules (478 calories) target. I missed the Exercise Ring target 4 times. If it was easy […]Read More April Update or 2 Month Update.

I’m going to stop drinking! For a while anyway. I have several Facebook and Instagram friends over the […]Read More Wish Me Luck…. Please!

Sadly that has helped the bigots and ignorant also share their crap and hate over a much larger area too but it has also […]Read More The Amazingly Generous People Part Four.
I got told about this a while ago. I was worried that my slackness this year may have moved me off the list. But guess what, I am sitting at number 84 in the world of dad bloggers according to Feedspots – Top 100 Father Blogs And Websites For Dads To Follow in 2018 So a […]Read More This is cool. Thank you.
Last month (July) marked 27 years since I was given my first full-time job after leaving school. Yep, on 30th July, 1990, I started working for Haymes Paint in Ballarat, Victoria. Since then I have seen many changes in the household paint industry and some things that still haven’t changed. Some brands leading the way […]Read More 27 Years Of Paint Part One.
What did you do this week? Guess what I did. Photo screen capture from Hercules Returns starring David Argue as Brad McBain. My favourite film of all time. That’s right!
