  • my plateaus are all self inflicted by too much food. i will ring the man who sells maori potatoes for a laugh to see if he has any left but i really am not sure i need potatoes. i am like the chick in the marathon running on fat thread. i cant carb refeed as it makes me want to keep carb feeding. disciplinewise i prob could just eat potatoes if i could still have my coffee but i would worry what would happen to me when i stopped.

    • ok so here is my accountable post from the morning after the night before comment - I am gonna up the exersize !!!!!

      Went for a 3.5 km run/walk this morning, how path-et-tic is that !!!!!!! but that is how far I went and so, I suppose it is a beginning. I must admit that the last time I ran this distance (1 year ago) I was slower than this morning !!!! Then I was fit eating crap, and now I am unfit, 8kg lighter, and eating very clean !!!!
      anyhoo I am rambling. Off to do a couple of strength exersizes and "THE PLANK"

      catch you all later

      • Really really sad that this old Gwamma can only do a 1 minute plank. I suppose it is something to begin with, and i can only get stronger and hold it for longer - we shall work on it !!!!

        • Ugh, I hate the plank! I can barely manage 1 minute without looking like I'm having a seizure. My abdo muscles have all separated since having the kids, so I get that real attractive pyramid thing going on when I do situps. I really need to work on mine too - perhaps we should have a 'plank off'? LOL that sounds way ruder than it ought to!

          Hey 3.5km is way better than none - and thats exactly what I did yesturday.

          • Thanx LizzieLou - a plank off sounds just like the ticket !!!! However if Misabi is gonna be part of the challenge, we need some rules cos he will already have hard-as testosterone induced ones !!!!! LOL

            so count me in !!!!
            Should we do it week by week ????? or a one month challenge or ???.... guidance please

            • I'm thinking that we'd have to do 'the biggest increase in planking time' to make it fair for our testosterone enhanced friends. We could do weekly time-ins to chart our progress and then after say a month(?) we can declare a winner.

                  It would be interesting to see how many other takers we can find.

                    • Do you know what a thread killer is Gwamma? hint hint lmao i so hate planks! i am gonna pretend i havent seen this. change the subject. but before i do that. check this out
                      20 Core Shredding Plank Variations - YouTube i reckon the only way to plank is to distract yourself while you are doing it so as you dont watch the clock. i also like renegade rows far better.
                      i havent run anywhere today. mob handed and overrun but heading down the back straight. 4 days to go. i did have a swift sprint up the hydroslide a few times this morning and then swum 600m or so. but that doesnt really count.
                      anyone on here potatoing yet? i just prefer fish right now and cant face those horrid white supermarket potatoes at the best of times. let alone to the exclusion of anything else.

                      • When you say potatoing.......?

                        I have planted lots in my garden that I mainly plan on feeding to my family with the odd feast for myself along with the Maori potatoes. As far as eating them right now....not so much. I did have some on the weekend while we were away, but I don't plan on making it a trend. A couple of kumara a week is enough to keep me happy.

                        • i mean the amazing all potato diet? i have planted all my potatoes. it is the kiss of death growing your own potatoes as you never will be able to eat a shop brought modern one without feeling totally had lol i havent eaten any potatoes for ages precisely for that reason. i dont mind kumara but they dont grow here and the organic ones are so expensive i cant be bothered. i much prefer roast yams or even parsnips. i missed out on the asparagus again today. forgot at the supermarket and the stuff in the organic vege store was $20/kg so i got brocolli instead. i am gonna look at the farmer's market at the weekend.

                          • Where is the hydroslide ????? have you done the hanmer one ?????
                            yes I made a start on the potato thing. One feed in and I had a coffee and cream.... re -read what you are allowd - which is not coffee and cream !!!!!!!!!
                            so maybe another day.
                            Sorry that I am a thread killer - hopefully it doesn't become terminal !!!!! cos I am gonna try this for at least today LOL
                            I have maori potatoes on my list. Do they sell them at Countdown ?

                              • it is out of season for maori potatoes. you may still be able to get some of the little purple ones but the others a whole heap nicer.i would very much doubt you could get any from countdown. usually organic vege stores or farmer's markets sell them. my main issue would be the lack of coffee and cream too!! hydroslide is at the pool in town. i have been needing an excuse to go to hamner. is the hydroslide there huge? note tho do NOT wear boardies on the hydroslide. i couldnt be bothered to shave my legs the whole way so i wore my boardies and they act like a brake. a bikini is far more fun.
