Exercise update for the festive period, New Year and Jan 2009

I've been thinking over the past few weeks that I want to change the angle of my blog to a more technical nature and having posted a couple of programming related posts recently I've decided that 2009 is the time to do this. I will keep a record of the exercise / beer ratio which I've been doing for a while as I've been using it as a log of my exercise. It's nice to keep a record of what has been happening.

So this is Januarys monthly post, it cover the festive period of 2008 as well. The main aims of 2009 is to loose some weight, get better at disc golf, improve the UK and local Disc golf scene and continue to work hard at my career. It's a tough time at the moment with the current economical climate and part of my aim for 2009 is to help my work push the envelope and work our way through it.

I'm also going to use these monthly posts to keep track of my aims; including the exercise and beer consumption and weigh ins. So as of the beginning of the year I was a chubba of 12stone 4 pounds. My target weight is at least 11stone 7 by the summer; more would be good tho!

So end of the month is here and I've been keeping track of the weight over the past 31 days and after hitting an all time low on my birthday (28th) I hit a 12 stone 3/7 pounds, so almost a loss of 4 pounds in a month. I can live with that ratio of a pound a week!

So here's the monthly roundup ...
