New post on the site today. All about new year resolutions and how to keep to those goals.
Today, is Blue Monday. The most depressing day of the year, apparently. It's said to be due to a combination of factors including, weather, time since Christmas, debt (due to Christmas) and failing New Year's resolutions. However the reality is something different - Blue Monday was a PR stunt back in 2005 by a travel agency.

Monday Motivation - Start the week right. Onwards & upwards.
Entered into the draw for the New York Marathon in November, fingers crossed! Anyone else considering or signed up for a marathon this year? #2017Goals
Happy, belated, New Year! Yep, I know i'm late with this. Finally back to blogging. What are you goals for 2017?
Yep, totally guilty of this and have been for the last 6 months whilst I have prioritised work & everything else instead of my fitness, training & blogging goals. Work hard & train hard but don't lose sight of things that benefit you personally. Your health is important.
Good morning all! Have a great Monday. Start the week right, train hard, get stronger & fitter.
Having suffered, am suffering, from depression for as long as I can remember, especially recently, I saw this on Men's Health and thought I would share. Do what you can, but do something, exercise does help.
Do you know a great Personal Trainer, or maybe you even are one. Then get nominating for the Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard Personal Trainer Awards.
Sorry i've been quiet on here and on the blog for the last month or so. I'm back now though, thanks for sticking around. Have a great Monday all!
