Project lockdown Fitness: Day 34 – Crying and Squats

I have decided to write these things up an a more daily basis, it turns out if I leave things for more than a day or so i have no idea what day anything happened or what went on. Such is the nature of spending every day in the same place doing more or less…… Continue reading Project lockdown Fitness: Day 34 – Crying and Squats

PWG Days 12 – 14: Exercising in the heat is hard work!

Well…this heatwave isn’t going anywhere is it? This weekend saw people like me trying to exercise in temperatures as high as 32 degrees… according to my car anyway, and my car is as reliable as the met office right?

PWG Day 10 & 11: Walking and dancing and rest…

Day 10 I suppose a day that includes dancing and walking can’t really be designated a rest day, but it was. I walked around in the sunshine during my lunch break, then danced around outside a pub for the evening 🙂 These things were good things, especially the dancing which was a fun evening with…… Continue reading PWG Day 10 & 11: Walking and dancing and rest…

PWG Day 9: this may actually be insanity…

Well, this heatwave isn’t abating at all is it! I know…how British, talking about the weather, but this is so unusual for the UK that I am telling you about it!

Juneathon day 30, Project Warrior Goddess day 6: learning from my mistakes…

Last Wednesday I did my insanity before I did my dancing… this proved to be a mistake and made my dancing very hard work indeed. Today, I learned from this and I did my insanity after I did some dancing 🙂 Today’s dancing was at the local firebird brewery. They were having an open house…… Continue reading Juneathon day 30, Project Warrior Goddess day 6: learning from my mistakes…
