A reason to start writing again...

I have been pretty bad at updating my blog and my website lately. I guess there isn't a "excuse" but I just did not feel like updating. Things have been pretty full on over the last few months. Personal training has been pretty good and I think I had succeeded to take my clients one step closer to their goals. It is hard to change your lifestyle but once you get there you realize that it is worth it.

My own training has been a bit of a struggle. I guess I get a bit lazy sometimes but if you want to maintain a lean, muscular physique 365 days a year you cannot afford being lazy. Tenacity is the key. When the football season finished I lost track a bit and I didn't enjoy spending all my time in the gym. Over the last few months I have done a bit of everything running, weights sessions, power training, some boxing and now I have finally started to enjoy the fitness lifestyle once more. I am trying to cook more healthy food and follow a set program for training.

Another thing that has taken quite some time is training Loki our 9 month old amstaff. Accordingly to our dog behaviorist Liarne Henry at a dogs life he entered his teenage stage. Boisterous, arrogant and with more attitude than he can back up made his training a huge challenge. He is doing pretty well I assume and in a weeks time he will get company from his "little sister" Hua, a 8 week old Rhodesian Ridgeback. Why make things easy, when you can make it hard. :)












































The reason I decided to write another entry was that I a couple of weeks ago did a shoot for Sporte Leisure. The crew was great and even though it was a long day time passed quickly. The photographer Warwick Gibson from Big Fish did an amazing job. Yesterday I got this image forwarded to me. It is a shoot of their rain proof jackets. Not bad right?

Finally a pair of wheels:)

Just a quick not, after 6 years living in Sydney without a car I finally decided that I needed one. So a couple of days ago I picked a 2009 Subaru Impreza hatch. Yes, I know... a hatch is a bit of a family wagon but then again I can fit all my sport gear, surfboards, dog and a whole lot more in it.

Chop-Chop

Loki has just turned 6 months and tomorrow he is going to be neutered. I assume he won't appreciate it as we will need to keep him out of the water for the next 10 days. Over the last couple of months we have been going to a small local beach so he can have a play in the water. As you can see, he is a water boy.

2010

As you might have noticed I have taken a fair break from my blog. So much have happened in the last few months and I must say that I am eager to find out what 2010 got to offer. I just came back from a longer christmas holiday in New Zealand. After working hard over the last year I felt like I deserved a break... and what a break I had :)

I took 10 days off during christmas and spent my time laying on the beach, surfing and eating some great food. In the photos below me and Camille were collecting mussels and oysters for that nights dinner. No food taste better than the one that you gather/fish or hunt yourself. Especially if the dinner consist of New Zealand green lip mussels and fresh oysters:)


































Happy New Year... 2010 is going to be great.

Loki AKA LOCO

I was starting to sick of this grey and rainy weather but the other day the sun finally showed itself and Loki and I went to the park. Over the last few weeks, me and Camille have tried to get Loki used to water as both of us surf and loves being on the beach. Before the video you can see Loki had never seen water outside the shower. At 13 weeks it was time... This is what happened the first time he got found a fountain..

Loki maybe should be called Loco?
