As well as pushing the boundaries, today I crossed one. For the first time in a while my weight dipped to 79.2kg and as you can see that trips me across from “Overweight” and into “Healthy”.
Now I’ve always taken these charts with a pinch of salt (although I hear that’s not healthy either), and I’ve always contested the overweight bit as frankly I’m not sure that there is a one size fits all approach to this, (although I’ve taken to choosing Extra large sizes in T-shirts recently). However with the objective of being able to fit into my wing walker cat suit readers will know that I’ve ditched a few of my unhealthy eating habits of late. Mostly its been relatively easy, I’ve changed my lunchtime habit of a sandwich and skipped the evening Beer and Wine and thats been about it. I think I’ve developed a bit more of sweet tooth than I had before so there has been the occasional cake or donut slipped in for good (or bad) measure. However yesterday I faced an eating out lunchtime conundrum. I’ve got my folks down for the weekend so we visited the beach and stopped for lunch. I was faced with row upon row of sandwiches, pies and scones, for more than a brief moment I actually considered a pre packed salad, (just for the record I have never ever chosen a salad while eating out in all of my 5 decades), happily I maintained my unbroken record in that respect but it was a close call. The voice of moderation kicked in and I restricted myself to just the one sandwich (I never know what constitutes “one round” so it was two slices) and it was on brown bread with no chips well smug.
Todays music homage therefore has to be from my all time favourite singer in his Thin White Duke Period. I can’t quite bring myself to share the 10 minute title track which references him but from the album station to station is the fantastic golden years. Watch out though for future blogs when I will be looking for an excuse to share Young Americans as I just realised it has a reference in it to the Mustang.
