Turning my Back on Booze

I just remembered I’m nearly 5 years booze-free. This definitely isn’t a preach-session by the way! I know I used to exercise after a wild night out; yet it started to interfere with my training, making me sluggish and was also making me unhappy/acting as a depressant.

Whether it be Weight Lifting, Yoga, HIIT, Cardio, Pilates, Walking; it’s so important to allow your body and mind to recover (properly) from exercise during the week. In the past, I thought that resting was backtracking my progress, only to find that it amazingly contributesContinue reading “Resting: An Essential Part of Training – Part 1 – ‘Body is the Boss’”
