soooo, back down the gym this morning and found it tough going if i’m honest! could feel the belly a little more than usual, while on the rowing machine. took things relatively easily with the weights – after all it’s just a part of daily life now so there’s nothing to “prove”. felt great afterwards, […]

spent most of the weekend feeling tired, achy, sneezing and having headaches, so it was a relief to wake up this morning and feel fine. once I got into the gym session though, it became clear that my energy levels were well down, so rowing times were up and weights were drastically down. had a […]
