Science Showoff Oxford 2 – 20th September, SIGN UP TO PERFORM

I had so much fun performing here last year that I have signed up again. So come see some awesome performances.

Science Showoff

It’s always such a pleasure to head to Oxford, home of such incredible history and a comma beloved of one-upping grammar pedants everywhere.

We’re coming to town on Friday the 20th for a gig in East Oxford Community Centre (it’s just off Cowley Road (44 Princes St, Oxford OX4 1DD ). This gig is being run with Phil Dooley, an extraordinary communicator of science through chat, demos and song, for whom it is the last public performance before he returns to Australia.

But we need more acts to perform alongside Phil, and to make this a proper massive Showoff gig for Oxford! Old friends and new ones are welcome to perform, and you can do any kind of performance about any kind of science you like. Music, jokes, demos, video, talks, theatre, stories, literally anything you want!

You’ll need to grab a 9-minute slot here:

The gig will be…

3 week update to diet

In my last blog post I started a new diet and exercise plan:

45″ waist
14″ Right Biceps
14″ Left Biceps
25″ Right Thigh
25″ Left Thigh

So that is where I was at three weeks ago, since then my scales have run out of batteries. But my new measurements are:

42.5″ waist

23″ Right/Left Thighs

14″ Right/Left Biceps

So 6.5″ inches total from my various circumferences. I’m pretty happy with that though I don’t know if that is good or bad.

Starting a diet and exercise program

To get me started and motivated I am posting my shame here so that I can track it weekly. Last week I weighted myself at 228ish but I have been away so I haven’t really been able to get into diet and exercise totally yet.

So initial weight in today:
226.2 Pounds
43.2% Body Fat
45″ waist
14″ Right Bicep
14″ Left Bicep
25″ Right Thigh
25″ Left Thigh

I have managed almost 2 lbs without much effort, so hopefully next week will be better.
