In the next three weeks i have to do thirty dives for commercial diver training ,It's going to be like boot camp, with heaps of exercise, i told my girl i'll have a "six pack" when i get home, her eyes lit up and she licked her lips. But i don't want to get her to excited, i need my sleep and i've got a bad back. :D [8D]

Being a fully funded geek of some sorts, I have managed to get around the recently blocking of diveoz on the work computers, I should now be able to post more regularly (esp when on night shift!).

Been going well, renos are nearly done and been getting a few dives in. Noticed the difference in weight on the first dive. Went in with my usual amount and hit the bottom rather quickly, nice not to lug that extra weight around.

Have a good April peoples!

but another day done - will see tomorrow when i got on the scales if any of this is working

Got a bit sick when i travelled home and into the cold weather so haven't done anything this month yet. Might start tonight depending on how i feel after a day stuck in planes and airports. Then Friday is my normal gym day going to push some heavier weights.

A kind friend has loaned me a wetsuit I can fit into, so we abandoned the usual Easter plans for camping up the Murray in favour of my first dive since last April. So of course last week I got my first cold for months and so diving has been postponed til next weekend [^|^][^|^][^|^]
Did have a great day Friday collecting for the Royal Childrens Hosi Good Friday Appeal. Good to see the generosity of Ballarat people after all the industry that has closed and jobs that have been lost here in the last couple of years. On top of a great effort raising funds for the Bush Fire Appeal, Ballarat donated a record amount for the Good Friday Appeal! :) :D [8D]

haha duuude its not too bad. The only hard part is rescues. I nearly spewed up doin mine, you make yourself work so hard!!

and the only excercise you will be doing is with your drinking hand. Marty has a big thing about not excercising before/after diving. As for sleep, be prepared to come home, cook, drink sleep. And then do it for the next 4 weeks :)

Still bed bound. Been three weeks now. But bought my two boxes of Optifast Chocolate and Coffee Shakes to knock off 20kgs....

Looking forward to being a skinny cripple instead of a fat cripple.

Way to go barjumper...... hope you get better soon or you will be a skinny cripple with bed sores????????? [?|?]

Walked up & down "Tip Hill" yesterday- one of Ballarats few decent hills (and being a Kiwi I nearly chocked writing that )
I'm fat and unfit but I would have done it with out a stop, unlike the friend I walked with. Was a nice to change to the flat area I usually walk, but its over the other side of town & I don't always have time to drive there

As expected was a bit sore today and my P.T. had no sympathy. Still pushing ahead with heavier weights, now i can feel more muscles crying out.

I am the lightest i have been for years and my body fat is decreasing slowly according to the scales but i still see myself as carrying a spare tyre even though it could pass as a space saver.

It's not so much the off season because i have only ever played a handful of games in the field, i used to play in the goal but that was ten years ago. I'll get to try out the slapshot tomorrow night in my first game this year (besides mixed).

I came down with gout so had a slack week, still getting over it but the pain and swelling has settled quite a bit.

Did a boxercise session yesterday and went to the gym tonight so still doing a bit of exercise.

Played hockey tonight we ran out of legs in the 2nd half and went down about 6-1 (lost count) but had a good run with only one sub and a few guys were carrying injuries. They put me in the centre half so had to be on the go contiuously.

Im back :) [8D] Three weeks of Commercial diver training,,man i am knackerd i lost heaps of weight, we started at 7 or 8 in the morning and finished at 6 we didnt stop for lunch or smoko. The water was 11 degrees at 27 metres so using phnuematic tools
and making knots and heaps more stuff while all the time on video servailance was quite a challenge, then there were 3 rescues to perform-- while on surface air supply using a full face mask or band mask also used was a gorski helmet we had to recover an unconscious diver about 30 metres from the boat in 9 metres of water, it was'nt easy with all that gear on.
Well anyway i passed, so it goes to show,,, us older guys and gals can start new careers if we put are minds to it. :D

I didn't watch the series but I caught the end of the Greatest Looser last night. I could not recognise any of the final contestants with their original photos.

Wow.. to the winner who lost 87kgs.... wow.

I may have to watch the next series to get tips on diets
