I'm aiming for a big one (for me anyway lol). Run 10km, thru hike part of the flinders ranges (looking to do this in early June) and get a new job (the current one has a terrible work/life balance culture).
Driving to town on new years eve (to get some last minute soap making supplies) and was confronted with this wall of dust coming our way at a rate of knots.
My nephew was visiting us and put his drone up just before it hit and got some nice footage. Then it rained 0.01mm just to paste the dust down.
I had a similar conversation with the Doc a couple of years ago but I didn't want the meds. I managed to drop my weight 10kg, drop 15 pts off my blood pressure and halve my LDL cholesterol and have stayed that way since. I needed a whole food, plant based diet to do it (as recommended by sites like nutritionfacts.org), without sugar, oil or salt but the results speak for themselves. Exercise alone (I used to cycle 20km each way to work) never worked for me - I just ended up eating more instead. Other diets / fasting only put me on the yo-yo routine. This one is sustainable because I'm never really hungry.
For many it's an extreme diet but for me the alternative (heart disease) is more extreme, having seen my Dad go through it, together with all the flow-on impacts. I'm still slowly losing weight particularly if I go easy on the bread, nuts, seeds, avo etc - all the high calorie density foods. If I let them in the weight loss stops but I don't gain weight either, which is nice... I'm just stoked to have found something that works for me!
Well done @RazorPlay good to see you've found a workable solution
I'm doing all sorts of research right now on diets, etc... the Doctor has supposedly set me up an appointment with a dietician but haven't had any notification of it yet.
I'm maybe going to try a KETO style diet or Dr Michael Mosley fasting style method to initially lose my 10kg then just eat whole and healthy foods after that without the pi$$ing around known as "calorie counting"
As long as I can still have a few beers every so often then I'll be happy
