My son would like to watch Blue Bloods with me, so he has asked me to be quick with my blog post today. How can I be quick though when I have some momentous news to share with you guys. This news is so good, so huge, so important, that I can’t just be quick about it. I need to savour the moment and enjoy the telling. I need to fully express my feelings and convey my excitement. Plus, anyway, I really enjoy writing my blog so Joel (and Blue Bloods) will just have to wait.
To be honest, it won’t take long to tell you what I want to tell you, so I will also update you on my ‘yard project day two’. I’m sure you are all desperate to know what’s happened haha.
So, the main news. Well (as ever) the clue is in the title of the post, today’s being, “Superman is dead.” People of the blog-osphere, I am very happy to tell you, so very pleased to report, that as of yesterday (although I only found out today) I am no longer ‘super morbidly obese’. Yes my friends, you heard it here first, Paul (aka Kracker) Bentley is no longer a super morbid man. He’s left that team, he’s served his time and given notice that he will NEVER return. You see, with a new and improved BMI of 49.8 (yes I know it’s still horrendous but it’s dropping) Mr B is now a fully fledged member of the ‘morbidly obese’ club. Okay enough of the writing in the third person, I can’t remember who is speaking.
Guys, my BMI has dropped from 51 (super morbid) to 49.8 (morbid) and I am totally, as we say in Liverpool, ‘made up’. Look I’m not stupid, I know it’s only (in the grand scheme of things) a tiny drop in BMI, but, that’s not the point! The point is this, I know belong to a whole new classification and for the first time (like forever) it’s a classification in the right direction, namely, DOWNWARDS !! I’ve got a long way to go until I hit the next classification, ‘severely’ (39), but hey, this aint’ no 100 metre sprint I’m running. No way people, I’m in this for the long-haul. It’s taken me 42 years to get to this obese state, I can live with it taking me a few years until I’m just ‘overweight’ (26-29), or, ‘ideal’ (19-25). To be honest, I’m not sure I will ever hit ‘ideal’ or if I even want too. The upper range of ‘ideal’ for me, works out to be 182lbs (13st). I think if I hit that I would look too thin. What do you think?
BMI isn’t the final say on looking and feeling healthy. It has gravitas for sure, but there are alternatives or (more accurately) other complimentary methods which you should also consult for a holistic view of your healthiness.
49.8 hey! Well I never. This is just the beginning people. With hard work, accountability and encouragement I’ll make it! You see, I now know and I really do mean I know, “I Can Do It…!”
Yard Project Day 2 (see photographs for details)
Day two has gone really well. The rest of the pond is gone (down to a level we want to keep) and the dog kennel has also been smashed to smithereens (nice word). Rubble and rubbish is now piled up high and the next stage is ‘clearing the decks’ ready for the decking to be fitted. There will be a few days delay now as we need to wait until Monday before we can tip the rubble and it will then be another couple of weeks before it’s fitted, but that’s no big deal.
Enjoy the pictures below and let’s all ‘keep on keepin on’.
Adios amigos y amigas.
“I Can Do It…!”
