MF yeah mate thanks for that. I shall take you up on that :) thanks for the support it means a lot - anyway hope you are enjoying your break.

Hey Karen that makes me feel brilliant that I help you in that way. It seems many of us are feeling the financial squeeze at the moment - good people who don't deserve it. But if we can keep each other motivated and positive we can get through it.
The same offer MF made to me applies for you - if you feel you need a chat and blow of some steam PM me.

In the meantime have a great weekend ( the sun has finally started break through here in UK :) ) and look forward to seeing new trading entries from you ;)

Enjoy the sun while it's here mate!!! After the rain for almost two weeks we're owed one wkend of dry weather! If only my legs weren't sore from squatting I'd go do some hill sprints. Have a great Sunday...

Eating my body weight in carbs, peanut butter & proteins helps :)

So today we had an extended lunch at work as part of a the companies get healthy policy. 2 hours paid time to go of and do something fitness related.

What did I do? I played cricket! Fantastic, I forgot how much I enjoyed the game. We just played in the nets but I got the chance to practice my spin bowling. I also had a chance to get in and bat. Very intimidating when a fast, extremely hard ball comes at you :(

But very enjoyable. I didn't realise just how unfit I let myself get as it was very exhausting! I feel knackered now but shall see if I can get some full games in the future. This has reminded me how important it is to work on overall fitness and try to incorporate some fun cardio into my fitness strategy.

By adding some team sports into the mix or something you enjoy can help keep up the motivation :)

Haha, thanks, MF! I took that photo on the Holistic Holiday at Sea vegan cruise a couple months ago. They make lots of crazy designs out of food - it's awesome to see! Anyhow, I finally figured out how to do the avitar thing, so figured it was about time! :)

Hope y'all have a great weekend!
