I'm hoping that by reading your journal, I can get more fit simply by some kind of mental osmosis.

Who says back fat is a bad thing? Maybe on a hairy guy at the beach, but not on a crab.
LMAO i used to tease the horrid exhubby about getting fit by osmosis. if he sat next to the abmachine watching tv for long enuf, he could grow a 6 pack!!!
went for another 6 k walk in the rain. got very wet but it was nice. love to feel the rain after such a long drought.
dinner was a variation on pork, prawn and pineapple stir fry with steamed veges. garlic, ginger, diced wild pork, pinapple and prawns cooked in chicken broth. smidgen of fish sauce and some grated lemon zest as i had no lemon grass. i had some stewed apple and cultured cream for dessert. a cup of coffee while i was doing the dishes. and then a cup of earl grey with ginger and cinnamon and 1/2tsp honey after i put the kids to bed,

dinner was diced venison. the offcuts of the leg bones as i got my knife sharpened. i am making broth with the bones as i axed them all in half. so diced venison fried in venison fat. i chucked a 1/2" cube of blue cheese in it once it was cooked and turned the pan off and let it melt. i had maybe 2 mashed maori potatoes which i cooked in the broth i was steaming the veges in. it reduced down so it was all gelatinous so i just mashed it all without adding any butter. steamed veges were red cabbage, golden cauliflower and 2 brussel sprouts. and i had half a reed avocado and about 5 small cherry tomatoes. all with lots of salt and pepper and a cup of water.
cup of coffee when i put the kids to bed.
It would be worth it as you always go to such trouble to gather and prep your meals that I would hope you also get to enjoy them with gusto.,

had to gym it today as the gym is closed for anzac day. left my water bottle in the car so maybe got lucky to get 100ml in swigs from the water fountain there. skin fold on my stomach is down 3mm from thursday.
close reverse grip lat pull downs to warm up for chin ups. 15 @ 60lbs. 10 @ 75lbs.
chin ups. 5,4,3,2,1. same as before but maybe a bit better.
press ups with 2 sec pause at the bottom. 5,4,3,2,1. piece of cake.

thinking about birthday cakes. i want a cake we can all eat as i dont want to have to eat it all on my own. i have thought about chocolate nut balls but i dont think the kids like them. raw fruitcake ditto. and i just found this
Naked Chocolate Cake : The Healthy Chef – Teresa Cutter may or may not be able to get away with it. i do have to confess the sidebar ad for her healthy pea protein powder puts me off big time LOL euwww!!! i have always hated legumes.
i need to think birthday menu as well. since i like cooking that is no drama. just having everyone eat the same meal without any indecent yelling and complaining about how we should have pasta instead of fillet steak will be my present.
leaning towards. surprise LOL roast venison. with maybe chocolate sauce. some roast tubers and loads of veges. i have 4 days to make up my mind. and i have to have lunch and breakfast too.
had a cup of coffee midafternoon
dinner was steak and mushroom pieces in blue cheese sauce. steamed red cabbage and a few brussel sprouts. with grated russet apple in whipped cream with cinnamon as dessert. feeling incredibly stuffed so i prob ate too much steak.
