Nailed It! (NZD #9)

Since it's been raining here, I've been using the treadmill to go for runs.

Fore! (NZD #8)

They finally opened a golf course here!

Do not let the hero in your soul perish in lonely frustration for the life you deserved and have never been able to reach. The world you desire can be won. It... Continue Reading →

We get it, you work out…

“Training gives us an outlet for suppressed energies created by stress and thus tones the spirit just as exercise conditions the body.”- Arnold Schwarzenegger So far, most of the posts here on this blog have been about eating food that, while good and delicious, is not very good for you. This is not all that... Continue Reading →
