The burn goes on Nov 23

Well after a missed session on Monday I was looking forward to today's session.  As usual it did not disappoint.  Trent is brilliant at switching up and changing the sessions around.


Today's involved a whole new muscle set that I am sure will be felt upon the morning (update from the future – definitely feeling it when sitting down)   The last bit of cardio row 20sec full bore, rest 10sec sounds easy, it is not!  Had to go looking for my breath afterwards as it had gone on an independent search for oxygen.   The piece de resistanc of Trent's routines and the only constant is the stairs back up to your car!  Good five stories worth.  The day I can do a session and go back up those stairs and not look like a physical wreck I will be happy,

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.

Me and My new face have coffee! Feb 20

Well its now 11 days since the surgery and the healing process has gone really well.  They took the first set of stitches out on Monday, and the second set Wednesday.  I’d had a few sneak looks at the damage during that time, but Friday was my first day without any dressings. The team at the hospital have done an amazing job and while the upper lips feels all odd and still number its looking really good.

All you can really see is a red line below my right nostril to my lip and now that the dissolving stitches are doing there thing and dissolving thing are all moving back into the right place.  Visually its looking great and you would never know that I’ve actually had quite an extensive reconstruction done.
