    94.8kg. Another half a kilo down.

    Made some awesome chicken last night. Marinated in lime juice and tequila with a cajun rub, seared in the pan then finished in the oven with salsa and cheese.

    Got some ideas for some workouts over the weekend.

      So there's a 21st this weekend, and with a hectic easter and such, I haven't been thinking about what I've eaten, and done no exercise. But between this weekend, and my birthday weekend, is 15 weeks.

      So the first thing I'm doing to dropping alcohol completely until my birthday.
      Then I'm eating primal, as best I can.
      And I have a workout plan to try and stick to.

      Everyday I'll take a photo of either a meal, or the exercise I'm doing.

              Had a medical done today, updated figures of 163.5cm tall and weight 94kg, putting my BMI at 35.2. Blood pressure, blood works, cholesterol, thyroid etc etc etc all normal or well below dangerous range. Absolutely nothing to worry about, EXCEPT my BMI. It's almost an anomoly in my perfectly healthy body otherwise.

                Below 90kg!! What an achievement. So happy for this to happen. First defence interview in two weeks and I'm half a kilo away from being below BMI33. Can also do 10 strong pushups (chest to ground), and 45 situps to a cadence. Need to run that beep test now and see where I'm at.

                  Is 3 weeks before Christmas maybe a silly time to start back up, considering my lack of will power? I think I spin myself into a depressive cycle by making plans and having them fall through, over and over. My long term goal is now at least 12 months away.

                  All my exercise equipment is packed up. I'm too broke for a gym membership. Temperatures have soared, and combined with my work schedule make it difficult to get out and do some exercise. I'm complaining way too much. Last day for complaining, so get it all out.

                  I will get my nutrition back on track, as close to 100% primal as I can. I will make mistakes, because I'm still learning how. No grains, no sugar is a good start.

                  I will start taking the dog every afternoon. He's missing out by my laziness. Every afternoon, run or walk with him. Eventually, twice a day.

                  I will not let my vices get the better of me. I need to focus on my goals and what I want.

                  I'm looking forward to moving town and setting my gym up, hopefully with some new equipment from Christmas.

                  I'm looking forward to my kangaroo steak lunch with salad, with leftovers for dinner. Better get cooking.
