Nutrition Update

In my head I still consider myself a newbie to the fitness world but after nearly two months I guess I am verging on the other side and becoming as they say a regular gym user. I’ve become comfortable with my regular gym sessions and don’t feel right if I haven’t been three times in […]

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 […]
