iOS 12 ScreenTime and parental controls

If you have a family with Children who use iPads and iPhones this maybe helpful. Today Apple released iOS 12, one of the biggest features is a new thing called ScreenTime. 

ScreenTime allows you to monitor and control when your children can use the devices along with which apps, for example you can block games across the day except between 4pm and 5pm or allow them only 30 minutes across the week. After this time is used it will disable the app. Its a very easy way to control your Childs use of the device. There are now no excuses for kids being on devices late at night when they shouldn’t be.

The best part of this is that you can control it from your own device, so you don’t even need to physically use their iPad. Along with this you get a weekly report of how they are using the devices – what times, which apps and how often they pick up the device.

I found a guide here which shows you how to set it up. Before you do this, your devices need to be updated to iOS 12.

Cleans work in progress

Forever working on my lifts, I recently purchased a Perchmount from The Wod Life so that I can record my sessions and watch over them.

I noticed the other week that I wasn’t timing my jumps very well, so that has been my work in progress. This was a session from this morning, we were doing some clean complexes and finished with some singles. Last week we did a 1rm test and I did a PB of 102.5kg (225 lbs).

 

Healthy Habits Challenge and progress

Just under 2 years ago I started CrossFit, I weighed 82.2kg and was 21.4% (17.6kg) body fat with 37kg of muscle. I thought I was fit… Fast forward to last weekend and I’m about the same weight 81kg, but 11.9% (9.7kg) body fat with 42.1kg of muscle. Following CrossFit Box Hill’s Healthy Habits Program since January and training program has brought the biggest changes. Continue reading “Healthy Habits Challenge and progress”

AnchorFM

I came across and interesting iOS application last week for creating and distributing podcasts easily across all major platforms including iTunes, Google Podcasts & Spotify.

It’s called AnchorFM and is available for free on all iOS devices. It has an easy way for recording segments, transition music and getting listeners to call-in. The quality seems pretty reasonable, though an external microphone would still help.

There is even the option to do it through a web browser at http://anchor.fm

La La Falls

At the moment I’ve been sick with a bug I picked up, so on days like these I like to rug up and head into nature.

Today I went to La La falls in Yarra State forest. Checkout my short video and pictures below about it!

Welcome to the UK

Ash and I have come across to Europe for our honeymoon, we had in fact had this holiday booked over a year ago so it kinda worked out!

For our first few days we stayed in London, we spent some time in the city exploring the sights and sounds and just walking around taking everything in. Continue reading “Welcome to the UK”

90-Mile Stars

I’ve always had an interest in space and astronomy, there is something I find quite interesting in seeing and understanding something that is bigger and older than us all. I recently finished a Post Grad certificate in astronomy for the purpose of just extending my own knowledge. Continue reading “90-Mile Stars”

CrossFit Achievements in 2018 so far

2018 has had a bumper start so far; I’ve managed to get a few achievements before we are even a quarter of the way through the year. I’m still not 100% sure why I’ve managed to achieve them now instead of earlier, but none the less here they are. Continue reading “CrossFit Achievements in 2018 so far”
