13th March 2021 I finished work at the paint shop. 30th July 1990 I started my first full time job. I worked for Haymes Paint in their Ballarat shop. That would be 31 years ago this year. Haymes opened a new shop in Frankston and I got to move out of home at the age […]Read More Goodbye Paint Shop.
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
Personally I don’t believe in the whole New Year Resolution thing. I think it is a powerful way of setting yourself up for disappointment. Changing the calendar on the wall doesn’t really change anything else. So many memes at the moment about 2021 not being better than 2020, well der! If you actually want things […]Read More Not A New Year Resolution, Just New(ish).
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.
Well here we are in June 2020. 4 years ago in June 2016 my beautiful little girl Hayley (also know as Warrior Princess, Catgirl, Batgirl and 1 very amazing gentleman I know named Coombesy calls her his Hero) was diagnosed with Rhabdomyosarcoma. A fairly rare type of soft tissue cancer that presented itself as a […]Read More The Summary of Hayley’s Journey After Cancer.
Someone asked recently “How Is Hayley Going?” So that will be the next Blog. The Summary of Hayley’s Journey After Cancer. Until then it’s back to me, me, me… lol. There is to be an amendment to the blog The JB and Me Challenge. With the use of a calculator and looking at Body Fat […]Read More May Update or 3 Month 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.
Well I haven’t blogged for a while. I guess I got tired of the whinging and whining. So I apologise for doing that. I have about 4 or 5 started blogs. Some a couple of lines, some a couple of paragraphs. But the motivation left the building. This one is a bit about the last […]Read More Not All Anniversaries Are Too Be Celebrated But Some Still Need A Drink.
The Overseas Chapter. So many people bag out social media as the most evil of evils but I personally believe that it has destroyed distance and borders on so many levels. 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.
Today my heart hangs heavy. All I have talked about this week is when I was in year 10 at high school. I generally don’t have fond memories of high school. I was one of the invisible. I had minimal trouble with bullies. Someone would need to notice you to pick on you. I was […]Read More Michael (Pickle) Williams
