This coming week, on Monday, is the three month mark without an alcoholic drink. I don’t really consider this a particularly big deal but I do put it down to feeling so good.
Fitness and health is such a huge part of my life and it’s something I don’t give much thought to. Several years ago and more specifically the last couple, I made the conscious decision that to operate at a high level consistently, then I had to be fit and healthy.
Day in, day out, what do I have to lose?
Nothing. That’s what! Good food and physical activity, day in, day out is key. I hit the gym a few times a week but I really feel strongly about having physical hobbies and lifestyle.
Eating well is probably harder than staying active but with so much fresh fish at my disposal and an interest in good food makes this a fairly straight forward transaction.
How do we push fit and healthy lifestyles to people who simply don’t want to hear it? It’s a tough one, as most in the fitness game think gym selfies and general douchebag tendencies is what’s needed.
While I would love to get into it I feel it would be better suited to a podcast topic at a later date but I am well aware it is bloody hard to push fitness and health without coming off as arrogant or full of yourself. I realised this (again) when I tried to film a little segment in last weekends vlog and had to do several takes because self confidence, especially in our tall poppy chopping society of New Zealand doesn’t allow this talk.

Sunday was Tugg day once again with a fun session even in partial sunlight. Then I went to shoot some drone shots in severe wind
That’s it for the weeks blog, I could have very easily rambled for hours about my true thoughts on fitness and health but I will save it for another time.
The last week has been quietly satisfying. I’m not too sure why but there has been a series of small wins.
If it weren’t for the weather, which has just been plain rubbish then it’d be pretty much 10/10 out there.
I have dropped a couple of other blog posts this week, one regarding the first look at Tugg Winches which you need to check out if you’re keen on a bit of tugging. As well as my giveaway for a realllly beautiful looking pano of Omaha. Get along to my Facebook page and share this photo here.
Hours have been spent this week revisiting older photos and getting rid of some of the garbage. Quite boring but there’s plenty of gems lurking.
I’ve been out shooting a bit of footage (around this weather) and the last weekend was another great bit of fun! Speared another new spot which was holding some nice fish (not that we came back with any) and another big bronzie spotted off Ti Point. Came in quick and smashed my burley, I was alone at the time so was a good rush to see him chomping some fish heads. Find it here
Sunday we went and caught the booming West Coast swell then back to Waiwera for a very enjoyable winch session
Ripper of a weekend and a solid week. I managed to jump in the water this morning for a cheeky spear and came back in with two nice Kingfish in a hour. Smoking them up tomorrow, yeahhh boy!
