Project Whittle Oct 31

On my trip to Boston I had time to catch up with an old friend. She looked amazing. When she said she had worked her butt off over the last year, it was inadvertently a literal statement. Her butt was gone!! What was also so inspiring was that her health was the best it had been for a long time and her life outlook was top notch.

So with this inspiration and muse to hand I looked me up a personal trainer back in Sydney. Naturally I did it via the internet as thats what mr google is for! I had the assessment session all lined up before I even landed back in the country. While it was good to do the assessment 'twas not fun to get the results. When I wasn't looking I went up to 106 kg. Actually there was bait of good news here. The last weight check at the doctors was 108. So finished today my first session and feel so much better for it.

Zen and the art of BBQ Oct 31

Finally got around to getting the BBQ!  Took some time as I only have a small space to put it into.  After some checking things out I went with the Billabong 2 Burner from BBQ's galore.  All worked out really easy.  Did I mention I love my new car as well!  Mazda 3 Hatch – PERFECT for carrying BBQ's.  

Put it all together Saturday night and then only wasn't hungry at all so didn't get to test drive it with the rib eye steak i got from the meat specialist over the rail tracks!  (Did i mention I love my new homes location!).

Not to worry as had friends coming for lamb and lunch!  John brought some prawns so the first thing that sizzled on my BBQ was prawns.  Its terribly cliche and I couldn't give a damn!  It was fittingly perfect.  And the prawns after a marinade of garlic and chilli were BBQ grill perfect! 

The lamb also worked well, took a little longer to cook than I expected but came out tender, juicy and ultra flavour!  Gave a spin to a new salad as well.  Mango, Feta and red onion with squeeze of lime on top.  So so simple, and very tasty.

 

A great way to spend an afternoon.  Tonto has decided that he also love BBQ and all the little bits people feed him cos its out doors.
