Today self measurements are due in and I'm quite happy: Weight: 90.8kg (down from 95.7) Chest: 100cm Bicep: Left 31 (unflexed), Left 37 Flexed Tummy: 91cm Thigh: 57.5 Hips: 103 Waist: 98   I can't remember my original figures (I'll try get Elan to hunt them down for me) but I think there's improvement there..

4 Hour Body: Day 3

Posted by Rob July 28, 2011, under Personal | No Comments

It's Day 3 and so far I haven't grown tired of anything on the 4HB – the recipes are many and the food is pretty good (Not sure if it'll continue like that but I guess we'll see) I'm getting into the routine of everything now – wake up 6:30 (which I would anyway), drink [...]

4 Hour Body: Day 1

Posted by Rob July 25, 2011, under Personal | No Comments

So, after having looked at a number of diets, plans and so forth, I've settled on the Four Hour Body that Tim Ferris is behind. It sounds interesting, touting high-protein, low carbs and some quite interesting ideas. Measurement is important to the 4 Hour Body and since I do so enjoy seeing actual physical results, [...]

Setting some personal goals

Posted by Rob July 10, 2011, under Personal | 4 Comments

Hi, my name's Rob and I'm an IT guy. I'm pretty good at it actually and I'm continually exercising my mind with new coding so that's all good. Unfortunately, I'm beginning to adopt what I will delicately put as the "typical IT guy" physique and that just won't do. So, personal goals then – which [...]

Incredible Connection are idiots

Posted by Rob June 25, 2010, under Personal | 2 Comments

The avid reader will notice a trend with most of my blog posts. I choose an idiot and I blog about them. It's a simple formula and the subjects usually provide themselves pretty easily. I don't think anyone would argue that there's a dearth of idiocy around. Today it's Incredible Connection.   I guess it's partially [...]

The End of Lost (spoilers)

Posted by rob May 24, 2010, under Personal | 2 Comments

At the moment I'm a little torn. I'm not sure whether to feel upset or happy but I'm guessing it'll settle on a mixture of both.   On one hand, I don't feel as screwed over as the Wachowski Wangs made me feel. But on the other, I'm left with a sort of empty feeling. [...]

Bad Movies (Part 1)

Posted by rob May 20, 2010, under Personal | No Comments

When I work I inevitably watch bad movies. It helps me pass the time and I know I don’t have to spare too much attention in order to get by.   So far I’ve had: Deep Blue Sea – 5/10 Terrible plot, horrible CGI but Samuel L Jackson has a great moment. Screamers – 3/10 [...]

I’ve learned two things

Posted by rob May 14, 2010, under Personal | No Comments

I don’t need anything more than 4 hours of sleep a night. Kick ass.   It’s taken me a while to arrive at this conclusion because it takes some time to form the effective habits that allow me to do this. Now I manage another 6 hours of work every night. How awesome is that? [...]

Kicking my own ass today

Posted by rob May 9, 2010, under Personal, Technological Prowess | No Comments

So, I’ve been working on and off on a number of sites that are my own personal projects (as if I didn’t have enough to do).   Lately though, I’ve been slacking a little – hence the stagnation that is BlogNation.co.za. No more of that though. This is the time that I’ve started working.   [...]

So, I need to become a billionaire.

Posted by rob May 1, 2010, under Personal | No Comments

billionaire ( ) n. A person whose wealth amounts to at least a billion dollars, pounds, or the equivalent in other currency.   I decided last night that I need to become a billionaire. It's not all that crazy is it?   Well, perhaps just a little. Still, it gives me something to aim for. [...]
