  • Blog Post: 1 Month in

    This week was one of wrap up and preparation. The end of Q3 for our financial year, preparing for a strong Q4, and all the next financial year planning that’s about to come crashing down, and that’s not to mention TechEd09 . Huge things planned there. My role this year is looking after “Community and...
  • Blog Post: Introducing the Real Virtual Shave Team

    Well we had “The Big Shave” yesterday, and whilst I’m still collating all of the photos and editing the video(s) for everyone, I did throw this quick video together to introduce (most of) the team… As you can probably tell from the brief snippets, the whole event in the office canteen, was a lot of fun...
  • Blog Post: Smackdown Crew goes Bald

    Rick “Mad-eye Murdoch” Anderson and I, “Colonel Hannibal” from the Aussie “Mobile Smackdown” crew, are about to become bald. We’re participating in the Leukaemia Foundation’s annual “Shave for a Cure” at 12pm today in the office. You can join the team and shave/colour any time this week-end, or sponsor...
  • Blog Post: Counting the cost…

    The thing about cycling to work, no matter the justifications, is that you actually have to get home again. There were times today that I seriously considered just taking the bike on the train, but I’m glad I didn’t So like any beginner at something, during that Unconscious Incompetent stage (you don...
  • Blog Post: 3 Good Reasons

    Over the last year or so, I’ve been considering cycling to work, and this morning made the first run. Whew. There are 3 reasons which led to this momentous outcome: Drop the spare tire . Yep, I’ve been up and down with weight, and of course consistent exercise (without feeling like having to sacrifice...
  • Blog Post: R42 New Tech - Suunto T6 Training Watch

    It seems I have a raft of "new tech" in my life to blog about, none more timely than my new Suunto T6 Training Watch . As you know I've been "changing my ways" and introducing exercise into my life (again) (-ish). Well it wasn't going to be long before I could find some techy, geeky...
  • Blog Post: MS Biggest Softie - Over and Out

    Over the last couple of weeks, I've been inundated with people asking me how the Biggest Loser (renamed Biggest Softie so as not to infringe on any Trademarks) ended up. Well, I came second!!! W00t!! This was due to some hard work on my part, I dug down, killed all alcohol, and exercised like a demon...
  • Blog Post: MS Biggest Loser - Under the Ton!!!

    Technorati Tags: Biggest Loser , Health and Wellness , Weightloss , Fitness Week #2 in our "blackout" period, designed to increase the surprise of the Grand Finale in 2 weeks time. Even so I can't help but declare this week's weigh-in. Y'see I'm "under the ton!" I've hit my first goal, that of getting...
  • Blog Post: MS Biggest Loser - Weigh in Wk 12

    Ok so this week it's "mum's the word" I can't divulge what I've actually lost, because then my competitors will know if I'm catching up or not. I can say that I've lost weight again, and that it lies in the range between 0.5 and 1.5kgs :) Nuff said, still losing, anyone's game. R 42 Technorati...
  • Blog Post: MS Biggest Loser - Wk 11

    Just ONE WEEK TO GO!!! This week I lost a respectable 1.2kgs, which puts me in shouting distance (but probably not close enough) to the money. You can see from this chart that the two most likely to win are within 1% of each other, and I'm 2.9% off that mark. Still, take careful note of who's line as...
  • Blog Post: Biggest Loser Weigh In - Wk 10

    Easter struck! Good and solid! Not just me either - I did actually manage to lose 200g (w00t) but others either flattened out or put on up to a couple of kilos. So I'm still in 3rd, and only 3.86kgs from winning the comp. But with 2 weeks to go I'm gonna have to increase my weight-loss by a factor of...
  • Blog Post: Weigh-in Wk 8 & 9

    Didn't get to blog about our weight-loss challenge last week, mainly because few made it to the weigh-in on Monday. But pretty much everyone was there this morning, and I'm still losing. That's despite a hectic travel schedule, ruining any chance of getting to my regular fitness training sessions, and...
  • Blog Post: Biggest Loser - Week 7

    So I was disgruntled with my poor fare over the last two weeks and have really kicked up my game. This seems to be working with a healthy 1.3kg loss this week. This brings me to a total of 4.2kgs down, and a current weight of 104.4kg . Still not trending enough, but glad things are starting to move faster...
  • Blog Post: MS Biggest Loser weeks 5 and 6

    It's been a couple of weeks since I blogged about this. Yep, Launch Road Shows will do that to you. So how're we going, last week the seven of us weighed in at 802.6kg!! Oh, so close. This week, we're at 796.6kg Yee-ha!! We've dropped below the 800kg barrier! There's nothing stopping us now. Our two...
  • Blog Post: Biggest Loser Week 4

    I know, I know, I've been lax in posting my (our) progress. Apologies for that, something about access to the numbers of the team, and a set of scales whilst I was in the USA. But I'm back now, and here's how things stand. The overall team weight is currently at 804.8kg , down from a start of 832.3kg...
  • Blog Post: Trial by Diet

    So a couple of days ago I blogged about my intention, nay, passion to maintain my diet and exercise regime whilst here at the Academic Airlift Conference here in Seattle. I thought I'd give a little visual representation of just how difficult this is proving to be. Here is my average day, and the food...
  • Blog Post: Winning the Biggest Loser whilst on tour...

    If you've ever travelled to the USA, personally, or on expenses, you'll understand the difficulty in maintaining a weight-loss program. This is the country with the highest overweight people per capita for a reason, and most of those don't eat 3 meals a day at a restaurant for weeks at a time. The truth...
  • Blog Post: Weigh-in Week 1

    Australia Day threw this week's weigh-in out by a day. Not to mention going camping meant huge temptation with Ice Creams, Donuts, Bacon & Eggs, and of course, beer, cider, and rum. Still last week was also a huge week for exercise. 3 sessions of boxercise, and besides Thursday, I'm still managing...
  • Blog Post: The weigh in...

    Some of you may know that like many people in our industry, over the last couple of years (well, ok, decade) I've struggled with controlling an increasing mass. That's body mass. So, in the spirit of the new year, and taking total accountability for the consequences of my (gluttonous) actions, not to...
