Ordinary Bloke, 50 years old.
Challenged by ADHD & depression.
Trad climbing cycling & swimming - plant strong diet (9 months 100%), the cure.
Last Fridays weigh in taught me you can’t get complacent. you want to lose the weight, you have to spin them legs!
So today is a fasting day, got up, made some cordial for later on today, made a soup to take out on the bike ride and set off, with a vague idea of doing the 43km loop. Was out and feeling good in the morning sun, so thought I’d do the extra long loop past Mitre and around the back of Mt Arapiles.
Just goes to show you don’t need to continually hammer high cadence or push big watts to lose weight, you just need time under load to burn them cals!
Wow, checkout this amazing creation by @deirdre.robertson ! Makes me wish I had a real kitchen!

Strawberry, Raspberry, Dragonfruit and Kale Smoothie topped with Puffed Amaranth, Buckwheat Groats, Dried Dragonfruit, Banana, Raspberries and Strawberries! Just found these little delicious delightful @erbology_london puffs, and couldn’t be more pleased! Also, yep ... haven’t tired of those mini cutters! And, if you are wondering how I got my kale and that fabulous smoothie color ... I used a heaping Tbsp of @nature.restore kale powder! Getting my greens and keeping my color! Boom! As for the rest of the smoothie ... I also added kiwi, lime, banana, agave, matcha, maca, coconut powder, flax seeds and water to the raspberries, strawberries, dragonfruit and kale powders! 🥥
At my place there’s only one hill. Literally you have to drive 120 kms to the Grampians to ride up a hill, so it’s multiples of the one I got
If you aspire to completing a standard or Olympic distance tri, then @alistair.brownlee is great for inspiration ..... and now crushing 70.3
Aaaaaaaaaand the challenge to break 79kgs still stands. 4th week of intermittent fasting and I’m back up .6kg to 79.3kg. No super surprised, hit the Nati cafe and cake pretty hard last weekend.
No cake this week rice and potatoes dominate my future
Went into Horsham on a round trip, 70km. Commuting and training in one. And yes, I deleted the first post to get the Strava numbers in the pic. If I’m gonna look like a fat man in public, I’m gonna have the effort in the pic
@braddlesofficial learning the ropes, and setting natural pro. Top roping day at Bushranger bluff
Sure it’s ugly! To start a day of climbing 🧗♂️ I need some good hippy stodge to fuel my day. Mashed potatoes and sloppy joe. Plant powered
And it’s another fasting day down, this is the start of the cordial making process, the 415 cals of energy I consumed today came from that raw sugar. So very flat it’s time for bed!
While I was born in the year of the goat, I felt more a rat, a drowned rat.
25 mins into Nati, 52 to return to the mount through howling wind and rain. Oh well I burned 550 cals
The amazing cashew raspberry flan I had for dessert last night. After an epic bike ride in driving wind and fierce rain, I feel justified coming back to the cafe for a cooked breakfast. .
I couldn’t resist another piece, damn those friendly cafe staff! It’s off to the pool to put in some laps and burn off that cashew tastey-ness
Vegetarian harvest bowl, last nights dinner OMG So good! So tasty! So much food! The raspberry cashew flan was also really good, I inhaled it so fast I forgot to get a pic
