    Baba O’Riley

    I did not want to get out of bed this morning. Yesterday was a tough one for eating discipline, plus exercise. For the first time I can remember, there was a scrabble to find a snack before my scheduled class: I was light-headed. It would have been a struggle to do 55 minutes without it. As […]

    No One Knows

    Hey, it’s Saturday. I’m first up, even though I could stay in bed, and after this cuppa I’m walking to the Gym. I’d love to say I have some amazing glob of wisdom to impart before I leave but I’m just keen to go exercise and then relax with a green tea in the Bar. […]

    I’m not very good at building my part up on most days, but when it comes to entertainment? I think I’m FUCKING FABULOUS. Mostly this is because nobody else is going to have the belief that you’re writing a good story, and if all this time and effort’s going to be shoved summarily into words? […]

    Part of my health routine, as the weather has progressively improved over the last few weeks, has been to walk to my Gym from the house rather than drive. It’s approximately 20 minutes on foot at a reasonable pace, and what this allows me to do is stick in a gentle warm up before I […]

    I’m largely arse about face this week, mostly because I’ve pushed the priority set around in an attempt to reorganise the way stuff happens. That means I’ve not written personal posts until much later, and I can now see how things would use to get away from me in the past. It’s taken a real […]
