We Don’t Like To Do Things by Halves

100km Walk Diary Entry 3: Finally the full story

I’ve been trying to write this blog since two weeks ago on Monday (and I eventually started it last Tuesday).

First pit stop in the park at Wattamolla

It’s Nearly Time! We’ll be heading to the start line TOMORROW!

Well, tonight is the last night of full sleep. After work, my teammate (a friend from work), and our two pit crew (Mr OC and another friend from work) are getting together for dinner to check we have all our ducks in a row. My kit bag is packed, my overnight bag for when we … Continue reading

Easy Peasy One Day Juice Detox

My eating habits are by no means perfect and sometimes I get myself into a chocolate fixation mode – where I buy or eat chocolate and then crave more and keep buying it for a week or two. Trouble is, once I’ve got it in my possession I cannot stop thinking about it – usually … Continue reading
