Announcing: Blubbergeddon


Truth be told, I’ve been sitting behind this keyboard way too much for the last year or so, and to compound that problem, I’ve been stuffing my face with whatever was going.   I’ve knocked some of it off over the last 3 months, but I still have another 20 kgs or so to go.

Earlier this week, I was looking at Cam on Firstline thinking: “You could lose some weight Cam”.

And like a fly into a spider’s web, Travis says to me on Skype yesterday that he’s locked in a substantial running regime into his  MapMyFitness app: 100 km in the next 30 days, with the aim to shed that baby fat.

That got me to thinking:  Perhaps we should have a bit of a weight loss race:  BLUBBERGEDDON

Next Sunday, we’re all going to weigh in for our starting weights.  Proof is a photo of bare feet on a scale with the weight clearly visible.  Then every Sunday Saturday we each do the same to see how we’re all going, and the results will be posted to the blog for all of you to enjoy.

Sound like a bit of fun?  Wish you could join the race?  Well, you can.  Just drop a note to the Tipline, and we’ll put your handle on the board.   No need for real names, no need for any photos that will identify you.  So if you like to give it a go, you’re more than welcome.

The BLUBBERGEDDON race will run for 12 weeks.  During this time, we’ll see who has lost the most in real terms, and who has lost the largest percentage of weight.  And  of course, we’ll keep an eye on progress every Sunday.

One word of caution:  Yes, it’s a race, and yes, it’s a bit of fun.  This isn’t meant to be won by starving yourself.  Please take in at least 1500-2000 calories a day as appropriate, and drink plenty of water.

BLUBBERGEDDON:  Even if you lose, you still win!
