Firstly, if you are of a nervous disposition look away now! Yep, that is a video of me in my boxers.
I've been quite busy and lazy over the last few days so haven't created any time to update the blog. However, it's now March and the sun is shining so things are going to change.
After quitting the exchange late last year I have become a lazy fat bastard and now weight 101.7kg!. I was training quite regularly in 2012 and was down to below 90kg and looking good. Dissapointingly my training came to a halt, my eating increased and my weight has sailed through the 100kg barrier. So as an incentive to lose weight and return to my days of having a rippling, chiselled, tanned and athletic physique that no woman (or man) could resist I'll be posting videos of me in my boxers at regular intervals. I will be down to sub 90kg by the end of April. If I don't get to sub 90kg then I will donate £100 to charity. If anyone wants to pledge to donate a few quid to charity if I DO get to sub 90kg then pls let me know, so either way a charity will get a few quid.
I'm just going through the form for today's racing so I'll post a trading based update later today after the TFF webinar.
Cheers - Dave.
Well my weight has already dropped to 98.4kg so I'm well happy.
The trading has started to pick-up now that we've had less cancellations. I'm gradually becoming more of an pre-race/early IR trader in the win market. When I take a position at the off then I'm normally out of the trade within the first third or half of the race. This is working quite well and as I gradually up my stakes then my profits should also increase.
Time flies eh? I usually like to keep on top of my blog entries but in reality not a lot has happened over the last 2 or 3 weeks. The racing has been pretty poor, apart from Cheltenham, but now we are moving into the flat season so things should start picking up.
My pre-race trading has taken a bit of a back seat as I've been trading more at the start of races over the sticks. This seems to be working out OK and I'm gradually increasing my stakes. The place market seems to have improved slightly but I'm not holding my breath
So I'll be back blogging on a regular basis from April and I'll stick up my P&L as well to see if I can get things back to some sort of normality.
