<<<<<< I should first point out that this is very definitely not me. As if there'd be any confusion hahaha.

So I have been saying to myself for a couple of years now that I would really love to give a pole dancing class a go, I've always been blown away b...

A friend (who shall remain nameless - Hey Chris) confessed the other day that he thought I might be a bit mad, when I first was chatting to him about doing the Ocean to City rowing race on the 2nd June, which was the result of a bit of a drunken conversation at my work...

Week 4 Day 1 (Repeat) 

My repeat of Week 4 Day 1 was far more successful than my first attempt, I did all but the last 30 seconds of the last run as I ran out of route lol just paced around the apartment complex and did some yoga for my cooldown, so will need to extend...

UPDATE- Week 4, Day 1

Oh my word - today was the first time I really struggled, I managed the first 3 segments ok 3min/5min/3min but my calves were too tight for the final run so I walked it. It's unfortunate but having missed the last day of Week 3 it was possible it w...

The last time I used a gym properly was around 2011, back then I followed a program drawn up by one of the Gym staff and I stuck at it for a couple of months, but I can't say I found it particularly enjoyable or that it did much for me in terms of weight loss. After th...

I have tinkered with My Fitness Pal in the past, I first signed up in 2011, I think I would only ever have logged in for about 10 days in a row, I would drasticly change my eating habits, guesstimate my food intake and take the MFP calorie burns as gospel even though t...
