Fitness Blues

As much as I don’t want to admit the long weekend got the better of me. Over the past six weeks I have been training at the gym three times a week without missing a single session. Now I painfully have to say I haven’t trained since Wednesday afternoon. When Friday afternoon rolled around all […]
