No co-incidence!!

It really is no co-incidence that my last burst of fitness activity was in the run up to the arrival of our first child, or that the drop in fitness followed the exciting arrival. If you then put a temporary job on top of all that, and the quest for a better contract over the following months - it all makes sense, doesn't it?

I haven't really kept up with blogging, and ended up facebook'ing baby pics and things instead... if I ever sign up to twitter then I fear for my blogging I really do, hahaha

I know that I got a few pounds (between 3 and 5) over 15st again in recent weeks, but I am really curious to see what my 'official' weigh-in on the weekend might bring. Somewhere around 15st I think, which looking at the trend line isn't all that bad really. Of course being on the move isn't simply about weight, but being functional active and healthy. So I do have quite some work ahead of me in coming weeks.

Happily I do have a target, my rowing buddy (laughingly reffered to as my 'rowing wife') is away for three months and we have resolved to come back to the boat in the autumn fitter than we both are now! Though I think on recent form I have a bit more work to do, but nonetheless targets are key to some good basic motivation :o)

Time flies...

Time flies when you are busy... sadly though the passage of time hasn't been so kind to my waistline. I opened this blog to pick up my efforts of all things fitness, and saw the last post was my boast... whoops... it lasted some time, then Christmas festivities and and great many other things came along and took my attention away from weighty issues.

Of late I have had a few sage comments from my wife about my whereabouts on my all time trend line, all of them pointing to the fact I have slipped by a few pounds (I will weigh in on Sunday and then adjust my chart to help my renewed pledge to get on the move!!). Noticeably I am not as fit as I was, the stairs in the office are tough at the moment, and rowing is okay as long as we keep it short and sharp?!?!?

Perhaps I'll even get around to diagnosing the reasons behind the slide ;o)
