Doing the Nightwalk

On Friday 29 May 2009, 11 of us trailwalkers:
Team Eat Drink Walk Sleep (Yvonne, Will, Avelyn, Nathan)
Two Peas Pursue a Spud (Pauline, Paul, Sue, Spuddy)
Flying Mozzie Hidden Leech (Moz, Brett, Evelyn)
braved the rainy weather and met up at the car park in Apple Tree Bay.

After a brief discussion in the rain it was decided that we would go ahead and walk from CP2 (Berowra) to CP3 (Apple Tree Bay) with a 'safety' car in Mt Kuring-gai (just after the dreadful long driveway).

Headtorches on we headed off through the streets of Berowra towards the trail. With a few stops to stretch, count off and just to work out where the trail was, the group managed to be injury free and finish the walk in 4 hours and 14 minutes. Not too bad for limited vision on the trail and a wrong turn by half of the group. We worked out the walkie talkies don't work too good in this terrain!

Headtorches: give a surprising amount of light. But probably not enough if it was an individual person but the light from the person behind and infront helps a lot! Very different experience but certainly not unpleasant.

Fitness Passport membership locations on a map

My Fitness Passport membership is now live!  Woohoo!  So I get access to a heap of gyms and pools and classes.  For someone who isn't interested in a gym membership I'm not quite sure why I have joined!!  Peer pressure. I'm very fortunate that I have the opportunity to join this type of membership as then I can go just about anywhere in NSW.  The membership site gives you a list of them but I had no idea how close they would be to either work or home so I copied and pasted the details into a Google Sheet and then put them in a Google Map.  I thought it may be useful for others too. You can access the map by this link too:  ​

The Croissant Diet Experience with a CGM - Sept 2020

I've been on the bandwagon of The Croissant Diet (TCD) for a little while.  Maybe 6 weeks or so.  And I thought I should document things a bit. There was a great summary by Brad Marshall on Twitter on what The Croissant Diet actually is: Eat LOTS of long chain Saturated Fat and avoid PUFA like the plague. Also avoid MUFA. If you want to eat some starch, go for it! But smother them in SatFat. That’s the whole thing, really. — FireInABottle (@fire_bottle) September 21, 2020 What I'm eating: Meat - beef or lamb mostly as this is low in PUFAs and high in stearic acid. Fats for cooking - tallow or butter.  Enhanced with stearic acid.   Eggs - cos they are a great whole food.  Usually cooked in tallow or butter (enhanced with stearic acid if I remember). Butter Cream for tea Coffee - usually black Low carb "carbs" -- Atkins crispbread and Woolworths Macro bread. These have vegetable oils so not great but I try and overwhelm it with lots of butter.  But generally not some

Magic Mirror - IKEA frame hack

Somehow I stumbled on the Magic Mirror project and of course I wanted to build it.  Forget that I was in the middle of another mirror project (still not finished) but this one is now built! Here is the finished product (still a bit messy as I put a small console type table under the mirror):  The console table was added... as I needed to hide the power point from my dogs who like munching on power cables if too accessible.  Before I mounted it on the wall I had it propped up on a dining room chair...  There are plenty of resources on how to get the magic mirror tech side of things done.  The key resource is the Magic Mirror site:   I've also used Google a lot and Jayen helped me a lot too on various bits and pieces.   The main thing that is different is the way I put the frame/mirror component together.  Here are the high level details (oxymoron?): 1. bought mirror tint from Aliexpress
