The Power of 10 and why it could be a real game changer for you

I was off work last week and spent much of that time decorating. I didn’t cross much else off my to-do list which, as per, is hugely frustrating for me. Yet another instance of grand plans which ultimately fell by the wayside. One thing I did manage to do though, other than touching up paintwork …

Tiredness rules my life

I’ve finally got around to writing my first post in a month. I’ve been away on holiday but that was only for a week and, truth be told, I just haven’t had the energy or motivation to do much of note lately. The holiday was much needed and another great time was had in Nefyn …

Live for today. Life is too precious not to.

I’ve heard some desperately sad news over the past 2-3 weeks. Two people I know have been diagnosed with a terminal illness.

The mental health benefits of exercise

Regular readers will know that I really don’t like how I look, primarily as I need to shed a considerable amount of excess body fat. I rarely weigh myself as I believe that people easily fall into the trap of becoming slaves to their scales (and therefore beat themselves up if they don’t lose some …

Time to change for good, starting with body fat

I had a dawning realisation this week. I’m not sure where it came from but it suddenly hit home that, despite having achieved some of my objectives this year, not least starting this blog, I’m still essentially in a very similar position to that which I’ve found myself in for a good few years now. …
