Mid May update

I just updated my "now" page... and rather than hiding the photos there as I'd wipe them in the next update I thought it was good enough for an actual blog post.  Because without a photo I'm not prompted to update...

I'll do a couple of retro updates too for the previous months as I think it's pretty good to have a curated set of photos indicating what I've been up to!

Non photo'd progress is that I'm being coached by a developer. Let's me flit from one topic to another from using Sourcetree and understanding git principles to learning to evaluate code.  All for working on BadgerMe.  It's going OK except the tech is letting me down.  And that's getting me down.  Argh.  I spend one day of the week working on my own stuff including BadgerMe and other bits and bobs.  I still have dreams about New Home Review but it may never come to fruition as it's just a lot of work.

Ridiculousness at work has seriously broken me.  I discovered a small windup toy in the work kitchen and just had to play with it.  Seriously (personally) hilarious.  (I don't think most of you would get it.  It's just something I found and played with and felt embarrassed about when caught by someone coming into the kitchen).

Oil rubbed bronze spray paint.  Can fix the bling that I don't like (shiny brass or shiny silver is just not my thing!)  Thank goodness Will is an expert spray painter!

Minions.  I need them.  I need them at work but not when they are BANANA flavoured.  Bleah.  But hilarious enough to take a photo and post them into a work Slack channel.

Mother's Day steam boat at our place.

We bought an investment property!  Off the plan.  Doesn't settle till end of 2017.

Visited the pwc offices to do some filming with Metarove.  So this is how stock photography with the diagrams on glass is done...

Ice cream.  Nitrogen flavoured.  OK not quite nitrogen flavoured but yummy stuff.  Don't squirt the syringe of sauce on your neighbour.  Just don't.  Others aren't as forgiving as me...

Fun at home.  Dogs may be able to stay at home rather than being driven to various places during the day.

Tried coffee at the Little General & Co in Riverwood.  Nice coffee.  Brekkie is all pre made.  Nice but not quite hitting the mark.  Great decorating though!

Ah memories.  Memories of being judged when pitching.  This was the progress review for the current cohort of Founder Institute Sydney peeps.  Garry was in his element and showing off his new pitching judging app.

Let's hope this purchase isn't a dud.  Needed a replacement bluetooth headset.  This is a little on the big side but comfy so far...

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:  ​

Sauna at home and Vivid Dreaming

Due to the current situation where we are all at home and most public places are now closed I've invested and bought myself a sauna.  I got a Valo 2 person sauna and it's been great so far.  I purchased it for ~A$1600 (before a price rise due to the exchange rate).  If you are reading this in early April 2020 they may still have stock here of the same model: I had looked at a number of sites for a sauna that would fit into my 1 bedroom apartment and more specifically on my balcony.  I briefly thought of a 1 person sauna but I'm so glad I got a bigger sauna as it's already a bit like a confinement space and to have a smaller space again I think would be a bit too claustrophobic.  Originally I had thought to buy the sauna from Appliances Online due to my previous great experiences but the delivery timeframe was too far away so I cancelled my order and ended up buying it from Luxo Livi

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
