I’ve just got back from America. BF Chris is boycotting the States until Trump is toppled, so when my friend Dor offered me a plus one on a press trip, I jumped at the chance! BF Chris said I didn’t have morals, but I like to think it’s more about appreciating a free lunch. And then some… Being gay, I was nervous about travelling to America in the current regime but I’ve always wanted to go back to the U.S. since I had an AMAZING time in New York with Beccy in 2012. On that particular trip, we were dancing…

I have tonsillitis and it has put the halt on my new Online PT experience. It’s that type of tonsillitis that gives you a temperature, the shivers and crazy thoughts. I told my Online PT, whose app often sends automated messages to me to cheer me, that I was unwell and that I would have to delay my starting the programme to which I was told ‘if you have any problems with the routine, let me know and I can adapt it!’ Automated. Then I received ‘I’ll be in South America for 10 days!’ His out of office? I walk…

I’ve started a new fitness regime with an Online Personal Trainer. Finding the right person is a bit like Internet dating except you’re looking for someone you want to look like.

He also tracks my nutrition via MyFitnessPal. I must reset my password. It’s quickly becoming MyFitnessNemesis. If that was a real app, I wonder what it would involve? Perhaps it would enroll you in Barry’s Bootcamp when you least…

I was wearing my prescription sunglasses on the way to work and suddenly had a fright that I had left my actual glasses at home. My mind raced. ‘What if I have to wear my sunglasses around the office? Would I draw attention to it? Would people think I had gone blind over night? Or worse, think I was doing an IMPRESSION of a blind person around the office’. Found them, at the bottom of my bag. But I missed my stop   Cardio while watching Star Trek: Deep Space Nine is going well. I even watched a Quark episode.…

Summer is HERE…and the sun was up and shining through the smallest gap in the curtains onto my face from an ungodly hour. I’ve never been a cardio person. I blame my childhood asthma and at the age of 32, I still do. I admire people who can get on a treadmill for an hour and just run. Like, really go for it. I get too bored and day dream or I imagine I’m suddenly short of breathe and give up. Which I think is my childhood asthma coming back for me. My BF is a great runner. He ran…
