Today I was a bit achy
And only had a cardio day
2 mile early morning walk
Washed my car
Mowed the lawn
And some very light arm work
Whilst watching the football

Ooh up to 12 st 12lb this morning
Time to drop a few pounds I think
Iím holding it around my middle
Legs and arms still lean
Eat a few carbs recently
So cutting back on them will be my starting point
I ran the half marathon well considering my weight
Back to the gym again today
