Went shopping right the way across town after breakfast, heavy load of shopping on the way back. Chocolate porridge with 25g raisins and […]

Went to the gym today. Did some curls, flys, dips, lat pulldowns and a bit of back work (pulldowns and some pullups). Pullups are still pretty hard but my back/ribs aren’t feeling as uncomfortable as before. My glands (thyroids) are still up and down, they were ok during the workout but have been up afterwards. […]

Had the induction at a new gym today. My membership at the last gym ran out at the end of January so it’s been 4 full months where I haven’t even been a member of a gym. That doesn’t sound like that long, but before that I’d not done anything really since mid-September: 8.5 months. […]
