We have, as a society, such a completely disordered, distorted perception of female bodies that the vast majority of people are incapable of recognising what “overweight” actually looks like on a woman, let alone “healthy”. As such, we’re now at a point where women are not only…
Spending the last 3 mornings in bed watching episodes of Beauty and the Beast online was not how I planned to spend my week. I have a mega cold, potentially with a throat infection and feel awful.

What really sucks is when you are lower than low and you really just need a friend and you realise you have no one. There is no one you can run to anymore. There’s no one left. That’s the true definition of alone.
So the first meetup of our Tough Mudder 2014 team is on Saturday and (surprise, surprise!) I couldn’t be more excited. So far we’re 13 people ranging in ages from 22 to 46 and with experience levels between “Hmm, Tough Mudder seems like a good way to get fit” to ex US Army Ranger. I feel more organised, more prepared already and we have 6 months still before the event.
I have a startup training program at the gym, which I’ll be swapping in a few weeks for my Tough Mudder training program, as soon as the snow is gone I’ll be starting running again, and I’m doing a pushup training plan and some yoga as well. Intense, maybe but I’m loving it so far.
