I’ve often thought that if you look back through the history of my blog, how would you describe it? With categories like 30 day challenge, Development, Low-carb diets and Photos – probably the kindest thing you could say is that I am a frustrated entrepreneur who doesn’t know what he wants.
I’ve signed up for the #Trust30. This is described as:
To celebrate Emerson’s 208th birthday, The Domino Project is republishing a work of art that’s especially relevant today. Self-Reliance by Ralph Waldo Emerson urges readers to trust their intuition rather than conforming to the will of the majority.
Sign up, and you get a daily warm fuzzy inspirational message. Funnily enough, today’s message really made me stop and think:
If ‘the voyage of the best ship is a zigzag line of a hundred tacks,’ then it is more genuine to be present today than to recount yesterdays
By Liz Bobulate:
But on reflection, if the best (insert noun – ship, space craft, person) takes a path that is never straight, why would I be any different?
I love this TED talk!
Simon Sinek discusses how great leaders inspire action:
I recently came across the blog The Art of Manliness.
I am a bit embarrassed to admit it, I first thought the site was either some sort of homosexaul, greco roman wrestling site or an attention seeking spam site.
I was wrong on both occasions!
I was really surprised at how its not gratuitous or rude. It is literally a time warp back to the 1950′s!
Go have a read!
So here’s my 6 months review:
- It works!
- Weight loss to date is 12.5kg / 27 pounds
- My cholesterol is sky high! (7.7)
- My waist measurement is 104cm (<94cm is optimal)
Mentally my outlook has drastically changed. At my age (36) and height (6’2″) I should be aiming for about 90kg. Never before have I felt so confident that I will hit that.
Physically I have so much more energy. Not in the “I’m going to go to the gym for the 9th time this week”. It is more in the little things. For example, I used to leave the dirty dishes in the sink and clean them the next day. Now I see it has something that I can do in 5 minutes.
Take for example a Neenish Tart. I would often have one of these with a coffee (~ 1 per week). Now I know they aren’t good for you and that I shouldn’t have them, but just how bad are they?
(I’m not going to promote one low carb vs another. I had great results with Michael Eades’, your results may vary). The Wikipedia article couldn’t clearly define what is and isn’t low carbs. So for arguments sake, lets say you are eating 20 – 30 grams per day.
What is in a Neenish Tart?

In my experience, going off the rails like this isn’t the end of the world, but it can be a setback.
