No lager is pretty hard to do! (David Donoghue)

Posted on 12:19pm Wednesday 8th February 2012

We are now at the halfway point in our eight week torture, oops I meant to say fitness regime and i have got to say that i am really enjoying it, well most of it , I have found it a little hard at the weekends, not because of the training, but the lack of not having any lager!

Aches and pains show 'something is happening'

After my fitness test on Monday I have been aching ever since - which hopefully shows something is happening. I feel better eating healthier even though its only been three days.
