  • Change


    Day Three of having a piece of exercise equipment that can support my weight. I could have gone and found a tree in the woods over there [/points] and really would have. The benefits of lifting my own body weight have already been shown with press-up practice. Now, however, I can do this after a […]

  • Give it Away

    Give it Away

    Take a second, and look at the header image for today (you might have to go back to Social media for it if you’re not reading this from a feed) Is this a picture of two elephants touching, or is it a wooden fence panel? I see both, but imagine one: the female on the […]

  • Walk the Line

    Walk the Line

    25 minutes into that workout, I wanted to cry, give up and walk away. Then I got over myself. pic.twitter.com/1MfOv8TsIa — πŸŒ— Sarah Reeson πŸŒ• Precarious Epithet πŸŒ“ (@MoveablePress) March 29, 2020 Progress is never an easy ask. A lot of the journey is adaptive reasoning: I can work harder, how do I work harder, […]

  • Musclebound


    Week One of February is already done. I’m already behind in writing terms, but this weekend grants a useful opportunity to make up the shortfall. Next weekend I’m in a forest, and realistically what needs to happen then is lots of photography and very few words. Between now and then, THERE ARE GOALS to think […]

  • Happy


    When I began my exercise journey, there were blog posts about it. In fact, if you go search my archive, you’ll find them. Things were considerably simpler back then, which seems quite bizarre right now to say, considering how much fear was felt.Β A great deal has changed in that intervening couple of years, not just […]

  • Three


    On July 7th, 2016 (it was Thursday) my PT, who I’d been seeing for a month, asked me to weigh myself at the Gym for accountability. Three years on, there are some interesting numbers to digest, as another significant exercise milestone is reached. My Fitbit is no longer primary means by which attainment is judged, […]

  • A Whole New World

    A Whole New World

    I put a lot of stock on my fitness devices and the result they provide, but today’s post is a reminder that sometimes, numbers are not the whole story: 59% effort looks, on reflection, like I didn’t try.Β In this case, nothing is further from the truth. What those numbers don’t show is how long I […]

  • A Whiter Shade of Pale

    A Whiter Shade of Pale

    Plus, in Interesting Aside News: at least one piece of my constructive criticism has been acted upon at the Gym. Stuff can and does change if you find the right words to use.

    The Sun Rising

    DAY 2: I’ll just leave this here. Just had the post-Christmas weigh in and, I'll be honest, this is rather satisfying… pic.twitter.com/MTIFNzA0Vq — 🌊 Sarah πŸ“ Redefined Metrics 🌊 (@AlternativeChat) January 2, 2019 Sugar cravings are non-existent.
