Reboot Day 101: not at all like room 101

Although it did contain some things I don’t like very much… Namely Shaun T’s “level 1 drills” these are like crazy burpees which (for some reason) involve 4 press ups and some mountain climber legs O_O they are effective but not the most fun in the world. They wouldn’t be the thing I encountered in…… Continue reading Reboot Day 101: not at all like room 101

Day 139: you know Thursdays are tricky…

Well this was especially true this Thursday! Possibly because it felt like a Tuesday, and possibly because I had been working in a different location and hadn’t had much sleep, but I can’t complain it was a day away from the office and it made a nice change.
