Smoke 18ck a Kipper, He'll Be Back For Breakfast

Do you have any links to the Hounslow diet? My boyfriend and I are, it sounds like in concept, doing something similar to lose weight and cut back on costs. I had trouble finding anything via the googles.

Ah, sorry, I was just joking with myself really it just means "Eat the kind of food we used to live on when we lived in Hounslow before we moved to Kew and started shopping at M&S.", so nothing special about it really, although obviously there's a lot more feah veg and dried pulses because they're cheaper than restaurant food, prepared dishes and fancy meat type things.

Sorry, I should make it clearer when I'm being facetious really...

Pretty good day today. I had a lie-in then ran to the club in my vibrams, did a little over 4k out to Hammersmith, slowly and concentrating on technique, then turned round and went balls-out on the way home, covering the distance in about 16 min, which is a decent time, really, especially so early in my training cycle. It's averaging 9 miles an hour in a single.

When I was climbing out of my boat, a little assassin jogged past with her mummy and waved at me. She came back and joined me for the weights session afterwards.

Me: squats, OHP*, Rows, first ever deadlifts

Her: little dumbell curls, pull-up bar dead-hangs, skipping, box jumps.

On the way home we did some handstands and bridges on the grass then had a wrap and some big, cool drinks to refresh ourselves.

*spellcheck thinks I mean "PCP" but I do not.

I'm late for breakfast, but I'll take beans on (warm) toast! It's what I have on the morning of the FA Cup at my friend's house who is all about England and the footie boys!

 

I completely failed my deadlifts this morning, but it was the first time in almost a year so not surprised or too dismayed. I like that you're getting sweaty in the gym! Flyer19 makes awesome salad faces too.

 

Now to go post my thread. Good luck 18k! Sub'd

Hi Championship contender, I wondered where you'd got to! 

Beans on toast coming up (although it's not just for breakfast, you know!

Speaking of deadlifts, I posted a form check video over in the form check forum about mine. I always feel like I am too unco-ordinated to do any of this stuff right. I'd love to get strong but I don't want to get broken in the process.

I saw your posts in preview, without photo. And so without the photo context I thought of "salad face" meaning a face you make when you eat salad. Which reminded me of this very strange Tumblr. Note: I work in a biz where I spend a lot of time looking at stock photography, and it's true. "Pretty happy lady with salad" is a thing.

Also . . . PCP at the gym is probably a really bad idea. Crazy sweaty dude dodging behind the weight racks screaming about the monkeys and why do they keep following him. (I actually don't really know what happens on a PCP trip, but that's what i imagined . . .)

Be careful with the deadlift as it goes straight (no pun intended) to your lower back. I'll check it out and give newbie pointers to newbie lifter!

Oh lordy, I wouldn't want weights with me in a boat. Or at least not a sculling boat. It sounds like a bad idea. Thanks in advance for the tips though!

Mm, PCP and weights go together even less well than weights and boats.

Woah, I think there is food porn up there!!

Didn't you tell me, when I called you 18ckipper, that "kipper" meant over-sleeper? Or am I crazy? I just want to know for what I'm in store :)

I can't remember the context but might have been a pun.

Kipper = mackerel, herring or other sea-fish, split and smoked.

Kip = sleep, usually haphazard sleep like a nap or maybe a few hours on someone's couch or whatevs.

So maybe I was making some crap dad joke based on the similarity between the two...?

Thanks :-) I think you definitely get a light sabre. My two are 3 and 1 so I get the power to smell disturbances in the force! It can be hard but my daughter has become absolutely Tough Mudder obsessed. She likes to wear her "My daddy is one tough mudder" t shirt and one of my headbands and count my reps for me :-) Looking forward to both of them getting to the age when they can come out on their bikes or running with me. Good work with the bridge! I'm hoping to be able to do one, one day.

Hi TFC, it's good to see you back for more. Yeah, the Spartan race is just the sprint (5k) version and my assassin friend is doing the junior on the same day. It's going to be excellent fun. I like the idea of Jedi Parenting (Hm, spellcheck tried to change that to Jewish Parenting...) do I get a light sabre? My daughter is very strong and sporty and a lot of fun to spend time with so in my case it's not very demanding but it was trickier when she was little and I'm sure people with lots of little ones must find it really hard. You have two don't you? How old are they?

News report today on a serious news program about some disaster that happened.

"Officials at the scene described it as 'like a Zombie Apocalypse.' "

And with that same sense of proportion, I must say that's what to say has been like for me. Food God almighty. How have I managed to kill nobody today? I clearly have the patience of a saint.

Did almost nothing g towards my goals though. Too busy with work and lawyergeddon. Why is it that I'm always in the zone between challenges and then get an attack of the lazies* when it starts? If only challenges lasted a week and had six weeks between them I'd be a cross between Arnold Schwarzeneggar and Chrissie Wellington by now.

*spellcheck says "attack of the ladies". Glad I caught that one...
