This morning I weighed myself. I haven’t done this for a couple of months. This morning standing naked I weighed 80.2 kg (or 176 lb for my friends in the USA). Since about Easter I’ve felt myself thickening a little. At the beginning of the year I was about 76 kg. At Easter I was suffering from ManFlu and then had an ankle problem which meant exercising was not a high priority for me. Coupled with some more extravagant eating it should come as no surprise that I’ve got over 80 kg.
I really need to stop eating so much, exercise more and watch what I’m eating. This last week has been a little out of control. Let’s take a look.
Now we need to remember I started the week with the ham hock (which was delicious). I also experienced my birthday (and much of Bron’s generosity). Finally I had one of the best quick meals I’ve ever had last night [click on the links for the images in the posts].
So in between I also ate pretty well.
Roast belly pork
Yes, I ate all that to myself and there was nothing left over.
Friday morning signalled my last Friday working in the department so I had my last Friday Mavi breakfast wrap.
This doesn’t mean my last Mavi breakfast wrap, just the last one on a Friday. From next Friday I start working as a Visiting Medical Officer in Pathology at The Canberra Hospital every Friday.
On Friday night I was late at work and so that means takeaway
I wanted something yummy from 2YUMMY
I chose a laksa of course
My char siu laksa.
My breakfast on Saturday wasn’t sensible.
It was a lemon meringue tart from Elk and Pea
Before I went to see GI Joe Retaliation I needed lunch. I don’t want to spoil this for anyone. I loved the movie. It’s well worth watching if you like ninja action, guns, heavy machines and very athletic looking actors. I will definitely purchase the DVD when its available.

A movie isn’t a movie without, you guessed it
For breakfast this morning I splurged and had some toast
Not just toast but half an avocado plus two poached eggs
For dinner I braised some gravy steak with vegetables
This was pretty nice and it was lean
I’ve included the rest of my week in instagram
If you click on any image in this post you’ll see the IG comments made by my IG friends. Some are pretty funny.
New speed dampening cushions have been installed on local streets. I’m not a fan of them. I am a supporter of better road safety.

Mr Owl this morning. Beautiful blue sky.

On a depressing note, my footy teams have not done so well this weekend. The Brisbane Broncos were defeated by South Sydney. The Reds drew their game. The Melbourne Storm were defeated by the Canberra Raiders. So very very sad…
