Project 44: Day 13 Oops I did it again…

Ice badger and the kettlebells of power!

ok…if I were a superhero and I had a kettlebell of power, I would certainly need super strength…it doesn’t actually sound like the most convenient power item.

Janathon day 20 (Insanity max 30 day 9): Done

As I haven’t done this for a while, I thought I would give you some more detail on my PT session.

OK…I wasn’t an actual cat…I didn’t dress up or anything… Day 337 Saturday Saturday was my cat day…a day of sleeping, studying, more sleeping, more studying and a bit of crazy moving about!

Day 319: A vast improvement over recent tuesdays

Well, for the first time in a while I don’t have to break out the I hate Tuesdays cat! It may have been helped by the fact that after a bank holiday I am always slightly uncertain about what day it is… It may also be because I had excellent PT and did not break…… Continue reading Day 319: A vast improvement over recent tuesdays
