Back to normal again

Below, yet another example of an easy, relatively cheap and very yummy lunch! Easily achieved by finely chop raw cauliflower (my food processor gave up on life a while back, so I am back to the traditional trade of chopping board and a workout with the knife!), broccoli and however many cloves of garlic that…

Cutting out the shortcuts

Guys, I have to admit something rather embarrassing! For many years I have more or less blanked warm up activities no matter what my subsequent routine have been. I have felt like I didn’t have enough time and that it wasn’t that important anyway. Shortcutting my way to the ‘real’ training instead. Pretty silly right?…

Sunshine and gym

Tuesday is here and I am in love with the gym.

Tuesday already, I have had a grand start to the week though. Yesterdays gym session went swimmingly and I managed to add weights to some of my sets. It is a huge win when that can happen and I still can sustain a controlled movement and work the correct muscle group(s). I love to lift…
