Yesterday I had my meetings for this week cancelled, meaning I can work from home today.

We've had our flooring samples arrive, and I think I've already chosen our flooring. :)

Having a chill in the park.

Car is being serviced and limited with options.


It is a bit cold but it is really relaxing.

You only need three chords to be a one hit wonder.

I did my personal best 'one sided planks' today! 1 minute on first side then 50 seconds on the other. Could only do 30 seconds each side last week.

Trying to improve my core to help my back.

Never joined in with the dance along to Boothby Graffoe, but tonight I did, and it was joyous. Next solo gig on Thursday 11th at 8, £5, if you fancy some of that lovely energy.

I did another HIIT workout last night even though I’d flirted with the idea of taking a rest day. It was probably the toughest yet with loads of squats and lunges while holding weights or incorporating bicep curls and a tricep exercise that was really tough. I think my body has been trying to kid on it’s defective and was shipped without triceps so that was definitely a wake up call. Feel great after as usual and we’d planned to make a burger if we did the workout. When we played up I was looking at a portion of a burger that looked pretty tasty and a meagre amount of sweet potato chips but it tasted like absolute heaven and it was all balanced for my macros and 100% on plan.

Then we treated ourself to a couple of beer since neither of us had work today.

I am loving how much I’m enjoying these HIIT sessions.

I got a sticker. It's not a bible reference, but a note of the time I was allowed to leave i.e. as I was driving they wanted to make sure I was OK.
