    Progress over perfection

    Stick with the rest days. The first time I did the ZR training, I did Mon, Wed and Fri, but I always noticed on Wednesday, Maxine would say something like "see you in two days' time", so the next time I did it, I did Mon,Wed and Sat and that seemed to work with what the programme said. :)

    The Adventure Begins...

    Good idea to ditch apps that cause stress! I had one briefly but it just stressed me out by showing that most of my daily calories were consumed in the form of biscuits I had with my tea. So I cut the biscuits, then got stressed because it said I was only consuming about half of my daily...

    You can do it, @Laura Rainbow Dragon ! Are you a plotter or a pantser? I averaged 3,500 words, and I know a lot of it is rubbish words, but the story's still there. Just work on getting that story down, don't worry about making it pretty or perfect - do that on the edit. One YouTube video I...

    A Journey of Strength and Spirit

    Ah, I remember watching the Wall on the you-beaut set-up - you know, surround sound, big screen, the works - of a work colleague of my brother. My bro and I were so totally tanked and belted out the lyrics with gusto and (at least on my part) surprising tunefulness. He never invited us over...

    Exercising towards a better tomorrow!

    I hate waiting for tradesmen! I recently had to wait for an electrician who was supposed to come between 8 and 1 (!) and he finally came at 2:30!! What a waste of my day.

    What workouts/programs can I do if I have scoliosis?

    I don't jump much because my scoliosis has resulted in fusion of some of my lower vertebrae, so I now lack the 'bounce' that a properly curvy spine would give me. But I still jump. I just don't jump high. And I try not to jump too much at one go, especially on a non-rebounding surface. Superman...

    Hello, @Storm I used NaNo (for the first time) to get myself back into some solid writing. I left gaps with square-backetted things like [insert (whatever) here] for when I could spare the time to do some research. I used it as a discipline, really making myself write every day, and that forced...
