Welcome to my latest update! My energy levels are good and I’m continuing to lean out as the home stretch begins. The training is going well. I’ve settled into a routine of three regular weights sessions a week, a couple of runs, lots of walking, and the occasional extra gym catch up. It sounds like a lot of work but what it really means is that I work hard, feel good, sleep well, and still have a social life.
I’ve got a month to go until #citytobay16 so I thought I would get over to Torrens Parkrun. Parkrun is a great initiative, run by volunteers, where you have a timed 5km run over a marked course. Perfect for measuring progress.
Risks come at us everyday in our personal and professional lives. We do our best to avoid them but more often we protect ourselves with insurance. We accept that life involves risk. Risk happens!
‘Life is a risky business, no-one gets out alive’
Health concerns all of us to some degree and we try to improve our health or at least to manage it. Some risks are foreseeable but some are not. These drive our uptake of health insurance. Health insurance is therefore a bit of a ‘grudge purchase’ – we don’t really want to buy it but we don’t want to do without it. Is it worth the money we pay for it? Some high profile voices say no.
Your health is your wealth, as the saying goes, and you build wealth by spending wisely. Your GP can be a great ally in navigating through the health system, a great support for you in times of need, and a great investment in your health.
So remember, we’re all here to help You. Drs Nick Tellis and Nick Mouktaroudis will be there behind the scenes and whenever they’re needed to continue and support the great high quality care Partridge Street General Practice is known for.
When I was a child I played cricket in the backyard. Great times and great cricket – back in the day. ‘Autowickie’, ‘new bowler’, and ‘six and out’ were heard loudly and often. So was ‘eat your potatoes’!
It’s the present day and both potatoes and ‘six and out’ are things of the past. Low Carb High Fat (LCHF) is here and my visceral fat is on the run. So am I. Half the deal was getting my weight down but the other half was getting my performance up. It’s six weeks in and I am not out.
Keep watching to see how it goes. See where I’ve come from here:
