Intermittant Fasting?

Several days ago I posted that I am doing a virtual bootcamp called Fabulously Fit at Forty. The point of the plan is nutrition and short sharp workouts.

Good purchases and bad

Freakin lovely day!

Morning all, what an absolutely glorious day! Apologies for the delay in posting, it’s been a manic week at work where I have been leaving at 5:30 in the morning and not back until 8 at night, so I have been avoiding the PC like the plague given the recent turn to good weather! It’s […]
