Hey 18ck (I had to delete the first thing I typed, as I promoted you to 28ck without authorization).

If I make it someday to your side of the Pond, I wanna hang out with your family. Maybe even you too! *smirks*

 

I am jealous of your ability to get in the kitchen and make things. Keep up the good work.

Cheers and Hugs for Everyone

28ck us my dad. Thanks, I think it would be fun to hang out with you too.

How are you doing? I'm embarrassed to say I don't think I've so much as looked at another person's challenge this time.

Still doing whole 30 like a boss except someone sabotaged me today with some hidden flour. Grr. Oh Well, small blip, move on. I've spent spent three hours cycling and attended circuits at rowing club

Boom.

Half way through now. Working, working, working all the time but the rigid, puritanical strictures of the diet stop me from reaching for the toaster.

I went to circuits on Thursday and for a short, fast run today. I still haven't looked at anyone else's thread. Solipsism, thy name is 18ck.

Still dodging the carbs, and chalked up one more run, 5 sets of diamond Push-ups and a Portuguese session.

Made a killer stir fry this evening, with all good stuff and a home made sauce, just added noodles for Flyer (Mrs 18ck is out watching Florence and the Machine) and we did some maths and watched an old episode of Dr Who from the seventies like a couple of big geeks. Heaven.

Yeah, it was episode one of Robot, so he was Pertwee for the first couple of minutes and then emerged in all his glorious Tombakerness.

Three weeks in now. I feel like I've lost weight although I haven't a clue how much. Not spectacular, I think, but noticeable, certainly. Today was circuits at the rowing club so I smashed myself at that. Actually, I'm starting to feel pretty good about general fitness levels. Got to focus that and translate it into a good 5k result now.

Are you a baker aficionado btw? I think one of the first telly programmes I watched when we arrived in the UK from Singapore when I was about six was an episode of Dr Who - from The Ark in Space, I think.

Day um... 24, i think. Made a Hairy Bikers liver and bacon creation with the flour and ketchup taken out. Plus vegies.

Cycling and geocaching with Flyer, booked my riding lesson, and did 22 diamond Push-ups in 5 sets. Doesn't sound like much but it was more like 8 at the start of the challenge, so...

Feeling good, and I've been out for short, fast runs every day this week, plus bonus rowing on Tuesday. Only a couple more days left before the end of whole30 and planning what to do next. Still no time to post properly. It's half past one in the AM and I'm still working.

Day 31 of Whole 30. I weighed myself and... Well, I didn't weigh myself before so I've no idea how much I've lost. I've definitely got breathing room in even my tightest trousers though, so that's good.

Anyway, enough of this weighing nonsense. Today, the 18ck family went to the Bear Grylls survival race - a new obstacle race set up by a sort of celebrity special forces bloke (is he famous in America? Oh I dunno). Flyer kicked off with a strong cub race, doing so many badass things my head was spinning. I missed the filter on my 5k race and ended up doing 10k instead. Oh Well, it was good running and I had quite a lot if energy despite the lack of carbs - I just wish I was better at climbing ropes! And lastly but not (as Martin Amis's dentist would say) leastly, Mrs 18ck did her first ever obstacle race. We had a fab time and came back with medals and scratches all over us. Mrs 18ck had fish and chips and wine to celebrate the successful whole 30. She's going to return a more-or-less paleo mode though (she's lost 10lb after all!). I didn't have any treats other than those I made myself

... And i'm just staying in the whole 30 mode for a few days or weeks longer, I think. It seems to work well for me, so why not stick with it for a while, eh?

Had a couple of easy days after the race, but still on the Whole 30 thing (apart from realising the handful of nuts I'd just stuffed in m'gob had peanuts in it d'oh!) and I've done another half hour fast run and the long-awaited horse riding lesson.

Still working pretty much all the rest of the time though, and still, I'm afraid, haven't found time to look at anyone else's thread.

Thanks both!

I'm staying up all night tonight (did I mention work was busy?) it's been an ok weekend though. In between bits of work I managed a run in Saturday, a row this morning, another run while Flyer was at her lesson and some more diamond Push-ups (they're getting easier). Now of course if I hadn't done those things I might be in bed by now but alas you can't change the past (and wouldn't anyway)

Caught up on my sleep, did another long run and some more diamonds. Today was circuits at the rowing club but I was on cooking duty which meant that (a) I missed circuits and (B) I ended up hungry and surrounded by rice and beans so I guess I've ended my Whole.... Um 42, i think it was. Oh well. That was a pretty good run. Going to stay in paleoish mode for a while though. I'm still not eating the chocolate-dipped coconut macaroons I happen to know are in the cupboard as post-school treats for Flyer.
