Goal 92 – six-pack stomach.

I am a little hesitant to actually sign this one off as being achieved. This goal, like several of the others, such as learning Spanish, or learning to play the harmonica, is somewhat subjective. I will be the first to admit that I am not quite ready for the front cover of Men’s Health magazine, […]

Getting fitter!

On Wednesday evening, as soon as Val got back from work we headed out to The Incline again. I have set myself a personal challenge of beating 40 minutes before I leave Colorado. Feeling good, we started our climb at around 5.30pm, and both did very well. Val almost made it in less than 30 […]

Batter up!

On my return to Colorado Srings on Sunday afternoon I managed to ride what must have been more than 100 yards, plus starting to get to grips with turning left and right, almost managing a full figure-of-8 at one point.

I am also wanting to get on with writing the book, and […]

Some weighty issues!

Well, as I find myself still jobless in Perth, and therefore with a bit of time on my hands, my thoughts have turned to some weighty issues, and in particular, my goal to get back down to my previous weight of 70 kg (154lb, or 11 stones). I don’t really consider myself to be overweight […]

New learnings.

During my travels over the last six months, being motivated to get on and achieve new goals was pretty easy. In fact at times, I was quite amazed at how easily some of the goals almost just fell into my lap. As I reflect upon the trip now, two such examples come easily to mind. […]
