Definitely!
Is there Still loving hut etc in Christchurch?
Have you ever loved someone so much you didn't care what happened to yourself?
You Just had to be with them.
If they look at you, your heart stops.
If you feel their breath on your skin, you just ache.

On the Advice of a couple of different Exercise physiologist I always do 4 times more back than chest... Helps keep my shoulders moving in the right plane etc

Eating a lot more lentils (Dhal etc) and whole foods if it's good enough for Avi lehyani, it's good enough for me...
Supplement wise, a bit of Nitrofusion with some berries and low fat soy or nut milk and BCAAS

What's that? A lot of places in Chch are gone now after all the earthquakes, if you have been here before it looks completely different now to what it used to be.

Not all bad though, the temporary city centre is pretty funky :wink:

Ah I think I actually meant the Lotus Heart... Haven't been to Christchurch since before the Quake, looking at Google Earth I can see that there are still whole blocks that need to be rebuilt
