Diary of a fitness-phobe #7: couples who Body Coach together, stay together…

… or, one half of said couple takes to this rigorous diet and fitness plan like a duck to water and the other half just craves all the cookies all the time. This, I feel, is the more realistic scenario. Angus and I (mostly Angus) decided to embark on the Body Coach 90-day Plan. For…

Diary of a fitness-phobe #1 – getting motivated

Everyone always thinks New Year’s is the time to get fit. But then October rolls around and we realise we haven’t exercised since January. This is me. Up until this point, I’ve been blessed with a flat tummy and a speedy metabolism. But since starting work and sitting at a desk every day, the muffin…
