It's the daily Talk Show Episode 871 at awaken Banta welcome. Jessica Lucas. Mr. 97. How are we gronk is happening. Google. Thank you. That's good. Yes. Very good. The steps are on. So it is. What is it? October, three years, Saturday, October three. And we have started the step challenge. Jess. Are we signing up somewhere? Are you here? Why haven't you signed up already? Well, you haven't told us where to sign the link. Okay. Well, you did. She did. I kind of did where it was dancing in Asana place. So anyway, what's the what's the deal? Where can other gronk participate in the walking challenge? They can. Maybe we should do a post on social media with all the details.
And they can watch. You fail? Because you haven't met your steps yet? For the past three days? Oh, yeah. Well, so this is the problem. So I
know, I've just been working hard guys.
Early morning, and then evening, because you asked me on Thursday, you said Hey, are you hiding your steps from us? I was like, No, I haven't left the fucking apartment. And so but Bree has said that today, tomorrow, this whole weekend, we are going to go big or go home. And you won't be going home until we've done our steps.
I will just say a few for the days that Yes, exactly. Yes.
Running. Running is the worst bang for your buck when it comes to steps. What do you mean? Absolutely. What? What? So walking? If you walk the same distance as you run, you're gonna get more steps walking than you are running. Yeah. And can we just not only that, do you feel worse when you run? And it has more of an impact on your body?
Definitely. Right. I mean, I don't like running a zero sum game.
Let's just go around the room talk about how many steps that we forecast for the month individually that we wanted to kick it off. 500,000
I said 500,000. And I don't know if I want to commit to it anymore. But
just because it's it's hard. I have done it. I've done the 16,000 a day today, and it's hard to get in 80s 80s really realistically, I'm thinking 10,000 a day. So that's 300
Yeah. 310,000 steps in a month, which I think is realistic. Could you could make it up over a few days. If you miss one. You can even just make it up just
there's a manual add into the into the one foot four platform so you could Oh is there are one Yeah. Okay. So I guess.
know, cheaters. Yeah, yeah. Yeah, cuz I feel like yeah, I don't trust my so George. George's in this too. And I'm worried about him. cheating. I feel like if anyone's gonna cheat, it's gonna be George. No, great if George pulls out 20,000 steps a day. Yeah. Yeah.
It would be good to work out some sort of accountability or like, auditing that could happen. Like, I wonder if you can we can do it through Strava Strava. You can it directly hooks into the platform.
is Apple, the the apple? I mean, we're all got we've all got the iPhone. So I think that's like, if you just forgot to take your iPhone, which you want Josh?
It doesn't matter. It watching that is in the foreign. So we just, it's pretty. It's transparent, isn't it? Yeah, we just saying. We're saying that. So it's gonna rely on you. Because you'll be able to say like, specific times, I don't think we want to be doing extra activity like adding in other activities which can happen. To your point nice, where it's like, ah, I did this jog. But I didn't have my phone like, no, it all needs to be coming through the app.
Well, the whole brain is about Yeah, she will to a certain degree. I don't think she'll probably do 10,000 mica TJ because she's also doing the gym or not the gym, PT or whatever he takes. Yeah. Yeah. Well, I think there's the reality of committing to something like steps. It's not about the running. It's just about the moving or the walking. It's just like, I was looking like I was about to rob a house last night at the front of my joint. I got to like 9000
Is 200 steps and I was just like Pacey up and down like a junkie waiting for his dealer to rock up and I'm just like, I was like shuffling I was doing small walk and like but I was moving more than I would have just been doing long strides and so you start looking a bit weird Miko
like running, you know, the traffic light runners are like jumping up and down or whatever. Like if they stop, they're gonna die. Yeah, yes, exactly. Exactly. So no, it's good. We'll check in next week, see where we're at. But it's it's your own mission. Right. So Josh, I know you well enough that I don't, I wasn't going to bring that heavy, heavy handed approach like gestede today to you? Because I knew you would have said, Oh, no, you haven't been working. You know, but I know that I can do it. I know that it is actually. Like, I'm the type of guy to make up the time and to do it. I think the thing is, what annoys me is when I have a phone call, there's been a couple of times where I've had an hour long phone call. And I've thought about it after and I'm like, I could have been moving. But it's annoying because I've got a stationary bike. But this isn't a bike race. And so yeah.
If you're gonna need to be in front of your computer. Yes. I mean, that was a concern that you had. But I think about work hours guys.
Know what I think that's the thing, right? Like work hours on.
This was actually before the first of October when I was sort of actually did more steps leading up to October than I have in October. But the
but TJ you and I had like a walk meeting over the phone. And so you can you can have them but I guess you need something like a second brain like drafts where you can be putting in the data as you go. I would like to sort of flag something if we are doing walking meetings.
I don't want them. You can't use your air pods anymore. I take mine off. Because I know how annoying they are for the listener. So I hold my phone because once you hold Okay, I just got a text message. Bodie just did a shoot in the yard. No.
What are you gonna do is cross it's fresh, freshly mowed grass. No. It's gonna stick to it. It's gonna roll it out. Like I told you the story.
Sorry, I'll get back to what was I wasn't even told Oh,
I'll get to that. But I mean, just followed up with a comment from Bodie, just as he was about to do the ship, which was I just want to be I just want it to be like the park. On which needs context. This needs contact now. I think I get it right. dogshit I know, shout at the park. The other day.
I took Bodhi the park. And he's toilet trained now. He knows what to do. He questionable Yeah. And.
And he's like, Okay, let's go back to the cafe, this cafe, where he's got them all under his thumb. They let him use the toilet. And so we got there. We went in. I sat him down. actually do we wait. And I get it, I get it when you're busting and you have to act actively start. Start moving your body. And it actually goes up back in. It's like it's going back into its cave. And so he's been like, he's like, No, I don't feel like it anymore. So I was like, okay, you sure? Yep, sure. walk back to the park started playing next minute. data needed to poopoo
coffees had his coffee from the cafe.
But the thing is, I wasn't going to risk at this time because I knew that he'd had some time. You know, for it to sort of just really sort of start manifesting. And I was like, Okay, oh my god, I Manifesto. I've got I've got some tissues in poker. And let's just do it in the bushes. No. So we went, we went to the bushes. And I had him up. I had him over my leg. And it was like he was on a toilet. And he just pushed on out. And it was ginormous one piece just to pick it up. At least.
I wish I went and got something from the bin and I put it in poo bag. You're gonna have to stop carrying a bag.
I put it I took it put it in the bean. It was it was a white. But he thought it was hilarious. This the problem. And so don't just let him shit why not just let him shoot. I feel like shitting your pants is actually a lesson anyway. He's gonna Yeah, I feel like
what was the risk of the judging himself? It's an app's
Load paint Josh he's not a child anymore really think about you doing it and then mention you sitting in the car. So like just think about
that now five K's so too far to walk way too far to walk and so anyway, I let him do it and in my head I'm justified in thinking mate Look at all these fucking dog walkers around here they let the people watching I pick it up now know what I wouldn't do someone's watching you know? Cuz I feel the embarrassment he doesn't yet cuz you were set up like a toilet site.
Oh man, it was bad. Anyway, that's what's happened. But this is the consequence of that. Just Do you have any time back? Yeah, just you have any poor stories if you have
not that I want to share with you, JJ are really
none of you almost all my listeners.
Bush ways. Bush What? Yeah. So three things we used to go and have barbecues out in the bush with the family and whatever. And my pop made a bush toilet for us that we could see it. And every time we'd go, he'd dig a hole. He'd pop the toilet, like the chair and the toilet seat over the top of it. And just be like, Oh, no more toilet into the into the ground. What do we need bury it after? So what's the actual barbecue? in the bush? What do you actually what are you rocking? Like? What are you using?
Is it like a
bottle and it would just yeah, it was just like a
like, Is it like a like a camping? Like a stove? portable thing? Yeah. So you go to the bush to then cook or you're staying at the bush and you just say I just the weird bit is we would Bob like barbecue in the Boynton like you would go to the bush to cook and then you'd go home or you staying there overnight. Now we never said I don't like camping.
I mean, we have these bushy, bushy areas very close to you. Right? It's like, Yeah, you did live in the country, essentially.
Yeah, do. And there's a Yeah, there was like places that we went. And it had like, heaps of vast land and rocks and boulders and stuff everywhere. That would just go and play as kids and take the four wheelers out and stuff. And yeah, just pet barbecues in the middle of the bush.
Yeah, so that was one thing. And then I remember Did you guys ever like when you needed to stop to the toilet on the side of the road after a big road trip or whatever? Your dad or your mom would have to like hold you up against a tree and you put your legs up on a tree and we do it that will that make
it like we can just stand up and do it. So we don't have good icons inside the car and peace out the window. That's the privilege. Yeah, but you're right. No, Jess, I hadn't even thought about that. Like for Bodhi. The difference with Bodhi is, I have him standing upright. And then I hold his chest and I lean him frontways. So he's like, on an angle on a 45 angle so that he so it doesn't go on him. So it's like the girl thing. My friends just had a baby girl. And he has a son who's the same age as bardi. And we were just talking about He's like, Yeah, man, it's a different thing. You know, this is like for a dude for a guy, real blokey bloke that has to, you know, navigate that as a parent. It's, it only makes you a better human. Definitely only makes you better human when you're dealing with you know, he's seen all that anatomy before though. Yeah, I mean, it's different when it's you, your, your daughter, I think is a, as an immature man, that could, you know, think about ways in pose, which most of us are, there's something that comes over you when you have to do it for your own child, where that disappears. And it's just focus mode. It's like fucking This is what you're gonna do front to back, but whatever, you know, work this out. If I can get it.
Did you guys bound?
heard of it. I never did it. My brother. My brother did it. Sammy absolutely loved it. He did it in.
He didn't use Zealand. It's like the house.
It's like, I'm sorry. I feel like I've heard of private schools in Melbourne doing it. You go away for a week or so. And you literally just have to, you're in the bush for a week. And you have to like his amp and you have to hike everywhere and dig your own toilets and that kind of like a veto thing. Or like, Can we confirm it's for private schools? Because I was I was under the impression It was a private school thing. I've heard of Outward Bound like I remember hearing about it a bunch. I went to a public school but I mean, TJ you went to that place.
In the in regional Victoria, what was that called? Where you would sort of? You went there for a bit with the school. Yeah, it was called clones. And it was that same, same theory, when they get to you nine, and they're probably you know, you know, causing ruckus taking drugs. Let's send them away for a month. Oh, yeah. Cuz you're describing mom, and he's got a plan to this is that a plant that is always head? It's
a cat at the moment.
I am sorry, just on the Outward Bound thing. It's actually an organisation outbound Australia
about Outward Bound. And so as a team,
there's their three to five day programmes, or you can do the seven to 12 day programme.
It's essentially self development. It's a self development week like workshop like, they've got agreed here. People place process impact, soft skills, authentic adventure hearts, like it's a real discovery of, of your human self. So where did everyone go with just like, I mean, you were grew up in Bendigo. And so like, I feel like when we went on camps, we were going sort of regional idea. Camp. A Waterman was one which I think was like maybe the Danny Jones or something yet they all have flying for they will have the same thing. Yeah. flying robots. Yeah. Oh, that's an archery
and a lot of a lot of link links, deodorant. But the
way you going into the city for your camps, or what were your school camps, now, so we went I remember we went to Ballarat, the sovereign Hill.
Place one there
is a camp to actually stay there though. Yeah, we stayed there. Yeah, it was one night. That was like a grade five or something thing. Did you get dressed up?
Um, I don't know if I got dressed up that time, but I definitely have been dress up that before. Okay. I love sovereign Hill. Yeah, we could go. Yeah, it's good fun.
Slow out. Yeah. Raspberry drops are the best on a
date. They're one time it was really? Yeah. Why? What a spot tornar because it was why we were adults. And was what was it? Yeah, I mean, I won't.
It would have been
it would have been 21 you're 21 I mean, so what's the deal? Like what's the is it cute? through the 1800s like holding hands learning about the golden Nike? I yeah, I just felt it was a little bit weird for a date. Because he went away and I was like, I love the beach. Like, let's go to the beach.
Suffern. Whoa. Did you on a day? We saved him Bella. Right. Okay. Yeah.
Yeah. And he got dressed up for them. This is so bizarre. No.
I just remember saying to my boss, like, I just really don't want to go like I don't want to go like how do I get out of this? Like he's paid for two nights. You have to go. Oh, no. I mean, how did that happen? How did like this and poor communication? Yes. I'm really lucky that he wishes. Yeah. Okay, she came. Nani says, Have you worked out what you're going to do? In regards to dates going out and about because you've basically gotten away with not doing a single debt like you've had you've had a girlfriend for what is it? How long has it been now you counting down the month? It's almost almost six months, almost six months, he got a plan for went to the six month mark. The six months is on the 10th
It's huge. It's huge. And so what's the hitch? When I was when Brian I first started dating for the first year, it was like the I remember mom and dad or like just people in general get pissed off when you like, it's our one month anniversary. It's like well, and he's like he but whatever. And so I would do something
every month was is quite costly, really. But Have there been any sort of? Do you do any sort of milestone stuff? I see my face that you haven't? Nope.
The only the the I guess the first sort of milestone would be the six months but I didn't. I don't think we're doing anything. We're not doing anything big for it. I don't think okay, I've seen anything for mice. Don't worry about it. And when I booking say the Kelly invites for all of us during you know the
on a Sunday for the week. I always say sibs has blocked out the Saturday night he's got it in the day called everyone's like breakeven, so my calendar because I've got Mason's on there. She's like, cook night. What are you what are we cooking? Just ignore that.
My rents jus but it's just yours, Josh.
Yeah. And so, so maybe I don't know if I would agree with what TJ and Jess are saying I think of it. Step up
like it is nice to over deliver Yes, you don't actually have to in the most part with these things. You don't have to do anything in this world however, doing nothing even romantic like the what is romance? I reckon romance is doing something for someone like your partner that you don't actually have to do. And so
to do exactly the filter the filter of Now you don't have to do it like there's a lot of people who would live by that and they just should make a point yes. I don't mean Darby romantic Mason, but I don't want you to go out and say grace, let's go on a date because it's our six month anniversary or our seven month anniversary just do it because you want to do it because you want to be romantic and stuff said yeah, yeah. Well, I mean, the like, the thing is, I think I think we would we would celebrate it in that
what he's really
not doing to Josh said, I have to do something. It's gonna be kind of romantic to listen to. But what do you What's something romantic that you've done in the last two months and I'm asking you you don't ask me
too much No, we probably did it too. Well, like when when we when we do date nights and stuff like there was a couple of times where there was like getting candles out and then like I wanted to put them on the floor but that's a bit of a fire hazard so they ended up just sitting on a desk
yeah right right next to our computer that we bought again
right that's a dangerous mode
you're ahead of the you're ahead of Josh and I if you're even booking in Saturday
we're deep in the rise and ship and tell you what those Kelly invites would come in handy to make me sort of snap out of it Why have said to break every night it's a date night which could be saying this
slide cop out. But so what is the
what is it that like if you were to look at outside of ISO, what have you promised Grace? What is what's on the list of things like sovereign Hill I'm sure like it's outside your radius at the moment, but that will be high up on there. What else do you want to do?
love we want to go to the beach. Okay, love to go to the beach. I think day out would be fun going to the beach.
Our will has it probably has to be down like pawty or lawn or something like that. You can learn something a bit nicer than like St Kilda or Sure. Definitely. The sun killed as a cop out, you know? Yeah.
What else? I mean, we haven't actually spoken about like, date night going out. When things open up.
Mainly, I mean, this is I guess. Yeah, I guess if you need some help, bro. Just ask because I know it's I reckon Jesse's you go to ask okay, because you're it's you're not going to somehow know that the good restaurants are here. Because it's You haven't? Since I've known you. I don't think you've ever been out for dinner. And so
other than to check out chicken in Baldwin, but I heard that's pretty good. So I fuckin will give you that one. But I think you got to take into you reckon Jess? Is your producer have your date nights? Nothing? Nothing to be ashamed of, you know? Can we do that? Can we do that? Just be sorry, happy to take that on for you as the producing the idea of producing a date. It just reminded me of last year, there was a couple of times where restaurants would reach out and say, Hey, we want to offer you to like go and have dinner.
Like, basically like free of charge because we influence it, you know?
Twice. Can you believe it? It's a real rifle. Anyway, and I was excited. We met offensively, but it was
Yeah, it's an influence. And so anyway, you two pieces of shit.
I did it once.
And it's a very, very strange situation. Because I come out they say like, what do you want and all that sort of thing. And it's not that like a PR person has booked it in for you. And so you just sort of, and then it's like a bit like from a tipping perspective. It would still not be nice. Like, I feel like I should tip at this point. And now Surely, in 2020 during a pandemic, one things open like is there going to be any influencer? That's not going to feel like an absolute scumbag going to any form of hospital
tality and getting a freebie I feel like that's the repayment is parsing and you drive people there. Sure, but I felt awkward even though like I was posting and all that sort of thing. It just, we should create a movement around influences. It's time to pay back your pills.
That's a great idea.
Jess, have you when you before joining us you worked in PR? Did you ever look after a restaurant or somewhere where you'd be giving influences? freebies?
Yeah, no. But when I used to manage the stables of karma, we would have influences coming all the time. Yeah. And what's the what's the sort of etiquette or rule? Or how do you sort of because I guess it's this fine line where it's like, you don't want to like even when we went to Los Angeles and well, with tally and
grant smiley was very generous at his restaurant, giving us free champagne or something. I remember Mason, I don't drink champagne.
But do you remember that?
You want the champagne daily?
Yeah, so what are some? So?
Yeah, I just the influencer thing worries me. But I would like to know,
in regards to the feedback or thoughts around what he could do from a dating perspective, if you were to give or do a weekly thing, one piece of dating advice from Jess.
Yeah, I mean, 30 and you're single. So I don't know from a dating advice.
there's a lot. Yeah, there's a lot of masculine energy here. This is nice and female perspective. Yes. Ah, okay. Great. Started. All right. I think first Can I start off with one now? Because
I've got a date, to be honest in the next couple of minutes. But
you know, that was waiting room for me, I think
at the moment, okay, it's the weather's picking up. We're allowed outside we're allowed to see it on grass in a park. Sorry. I think what your first date should be is a nice picnic with a nice blanket pillows.
Maybe a basket if you have one and just like chill, like to get some cheese and fruit and go chill. And also get a dress to means
always put hives. Okay, that sounds good.
Can you send us the date and time and Josh and I will be there with a long length. Yeah, we will pass it Yeah, no, I'd be happy to do that. I don't know that the picnic things funny. I see people online doing picnic picnics like some will go over I'm I do this. Like there's no doubt but like, you're going for 45 minutes or an hour or maybe even two hours for a picnic. And like people always over cater these things like I love over catering but it's like who needs three lots of quince paste? And you've got like you've got a whole haven't seen my Queen's ratio. Yeah, there's like, but anyone like quince by the way just quince pies. Yeah. Anyway, I love Christmas. Yeah. Really? In your taste buds.
He comes in those those. One of those things that people say Nick hampers. Yes. Just never get in a house. Never get Satan. Okay. All right. Anyway.
I've got like, some picnics, but we can talk about it tomorrow, right. It's a daily talk show. If you enjoyed the show, leave us a review on Apple podcasts. also share it on Instagram. Otherwise, enjoy the rest of your Saturday and we'll see you tomorrow guys have a good one. Say guys
