From level 1 to 20

Friday, September 19, 2014

It seem a long while since I started this journey in fact it is just over 2 years. Suddenly it hit me I was obese but only just. Having been a little overweight it was quite a shock to find out.

The question was what could I do about it! A few years ago I managed to loose weight but in some 6 months the weight had come back on with its brother. After that I did not bother and got to 89k (I am only 5ft 7 tall).

While getting over the shock I found SP and my journey started with a goal to get healthy in 7 months. Well jumping ahead I did it one week early. I did find out a lot in that time about myself, thing like it is hard work, fear is a friend and that I need the exercise. I also found that I like to exercise.

Fear kept me on track and this also kept me from putting on weight the who of the 7 months. I had never realised I was that strong (we all are once the mind is in gear). I never lost more than 2k and some weeks a lot less.

When I reach my goal weight in March 2013 I thought that if I stop I would go up and down above my goal weight so I decided to move the goalposts to give me room. SP gave me a goal of 70k but I dropped that to 67k. a little bit more than I was 40 years ago. I have kept to this over the last 18 months. I do go up and down by as much as a K but is well within my limits. This is all due to my friends on here (SP).




2011 8 months before I started my journey am the one on the right in

I
Me just before my goal weight (I need a new picture).

Yesterday I reached level 20 and still going strong

Aylesford classic car show

Tuesday, September 16, 2014


Sunday was the Aylesford classic car show where some 500+ (could have been as many as 800) cars where on show.

Martin and I put on Martin's 1961 Morris Minor along with a few others from our club. This was the biggest this show has got over the three years that I have been going. I think they had to use another field for overspill.

I am only putting a few on here because of the size restriction that SP have on picture size. There will be plenty more if you go to www.flickr.com and look for Trevc.


Filling up













That is it for now.

For those who saw my last blog "Just what is lirking in your gym" the spider has moved out and not been found.

Just what is lirking in your gym?

Tuesday, September 09, 2014


I have a home gym that i put together over the last few years. This I keep clean and thought that I did a good job, that is until the other day.

I was walking on my treadmill, just warming up before going for a walk or run. I then suddenly saw this:



It had been hiding under the back rim of the treadmill for I don't know how long.

After a while of my walking it can down its web and then hid under the rim and when I stopped to look it "sat there" looking up at me.

Now I am not worried by spiders so thought I would give him a home. He is still there but come out at night and sits on his web and hides under the rim by day. I don't know what he eat as the are not that many flies around this year.


Last night there was a low moon in the sky. This is one of my better pictures of it.



Have a good day

    It seems to be the time of year for them - I've seen some pretty large ones lately. I live in an old cottage (though I'm not sure that really makes much difference - although there are lots of nooks and crannies to hide in) and get plenty of them. My friend and neighbour is terrified of them - I'm so glad they don't frighten me!

    The only spiders I dislike here are the Black Widows. Luckily, they mostly stay outside. Do you know what type of spider that is? Maybe it exercises when you are sleeping. emoticon
Beautiful Moon shot Trev!!

    I don't like going into the spiders home so I don't like them coming into mine. Spiders are NOT my favorite critters. emoticon

    Whoa. I don't mind spiders too much, but I usually take them outside when I find them. It's always nice to have a workout buddy, though! emoticon

School fate

Sunday, September 07, 2014

Yesterday was the Stanstead School fate in which the Morris Minor Owners Club went along to put on a display. 5 or 6 of our members turned up along with a few other cars.


our line up

There were a few sideshows and stalls but being a village out in the wilds there was not as many as there would have been if it had taken place in the town.

Our club put on a small stall for the kids



We have just bought a new "event tent" which we all helped to set up to keep us dry if it rained (it didn't)




Being a school fate it was aimed at the kids.



With a fancy dress parade





The hall with tea, coffee, home made cake and of course ice cream

In all it was a nice afternoon out with a lot of interest in the cars.

Next week I have the Aylesford Priory

    I recognised the name of Stanstead but, having left Kent nearly 39 years ago I couldn't quite remember where it was but I knew that I knew it and had been there and driven through on many occasions. It's not that far from where I used to live. That really brought happy memories back.

I once had the opportunity to have a Morris Minor as my first car but I decided against it. Now I wish I had bought it. You live and learn.

It is all your fault

Saturday, September 06, 2014

The first line says it all

As we progress into 2014, I want to thank you for
your educational e-mails over the past year. I am
totally screwed up now and have little chance of recovery.

I can no longer open a bathroom door without using
a paper towel, nor let the waitress put lemon slices in
my ice water without worrying about the bacteria on
the lemon peel.

I can't sit down on a hotel bedspread because I can
only imagine what has happened on it since it was last washed.

I have trouble shaking hands with someone who has been
driving because the number one pastime while driving alone
is picking one's nose.

Eating a little snack sends me on a guilt trip because I
can only imagine how many gallons of trans fats I have
consumed over the years.

I can't touch any woman's handbag for fear she has placed
it on the floor of a public toilet.

I must send my special thanks for the email about rat poo
in the glue on envelopes because I now have to use a wet
sponge with every envelope that needs sealing.

ALSO,now I have to scrub the top of every can I open for
the same reason.

I can't have a drink in a bar because I fear I'll wake up
in a bathtub full of ice with my kidneys gone.

I can't eat at KFC because their chickens are actually horrible
mutant freaks with no eyes, feet or feathers.

I can't use cancer-causing deodorants even though I smell
like a water buffalo on a hot day.

Thanks to you I have learned that my prayers only get answered
if I forward an e-mail to seven of my friends and make a wish
within five minutes.

Because of your concern,I no longer drink Coca Cola because
it can remove toilet stains.

I no longer buy fuel without taking someone along to watch the car,
so a serial killer doesn't crawl in my back seat when I'm filling up.

Have a good day emoticon

    You know you have some serious concerns and the best thing you can do is to share them and now you have done that. We hope this has taken a bit of weight off of you mind. With heavy heart I am thanking you for sharing this with us.
