It's another New Year and I haven't lost anywhere near as much as I would like. So I'm starting afresh and working to score myself points for everything I DON'T eat and every time I say "No" to the staff room chocolates. Although it'... Read more

Yes, still at it - Bootcamp is surprising me! Why? Because I'm still doing it, more than 2 weeks in! Never before have I had this stickability - it's too easy to give up for any reason - too far to the swimming pool, too much effort to ... Read more

I'm loving this bootcamp! Yes, I had to buy a new swiss ball - I couldn't find the plug for my old one - but this one is girly pink and quite an incentive to use in itself. My mother-in-law will be stunned to find I've spent her Christmas ... Read more
