 Well for those that care - good Rugby tonight ;Hurricanes vs Highlanders - who would have guessed 17-17 @ 75 mins! ? wet ball game looks like its turning for the Canes - shouldn't really have been this close ..... Blues are in S.A not feeling good about that result.

Great news on Hockey front India are over for few weeks playing Blacksticks - hope to get to one of the games: Cricket tour starts next week as well .....

Hockey muster trials in a couple of weeks so not too much time for TV sports watching - probably won't stop me though.....

Been off track with Nutrition/wok hours/sleep etc this week - think some of it was me going into self destruct mode - don't ask me why I just do !!! - last weekend started to see the gradual benefits of recent weeks etc & saw have got that athletic body I want - can't ask much more a few weeks out from 40th B'day can you ???

So this week back on track - keep the focus & keep the faith that I do deserve this this - just gotta keep the love of work in balance with staying physically healthy & enjoying life ! - Keep it simple

Got up early this morning in part for the football BUT also as its forecast to be 30-40C over most of the country today - with Auckland humidity that will be a killer - was 24C & over 80% humidity when i went to the gym   .... Still got a great if very sweaty workout in  -  nice cloud cover which now seems to be disappearing - its going to be a HOT one !

Perfect day to lounge in front of the TV in the afternoon watching cricket - 4pm start by then that's all I will want to do :)

Last couple of days have been a bit hairy with the wither bomb which has hit Auckland
see here for bit more info:

Even so did some bodyweight circuit yesterday - & braved the horizontal rain/wind for some bare essentials.

While the weather bomb has continued - Hockey was not cancelled today - so in the madness of the rain & wind we WON! 3-0 I think was the final score.

on a annoyance level lost power last night about 8.00pm - got returned in the early hours of the morning so missed the Rugby ......

Now I have going to go & warm myself up from the wind chill factor with hot soup
