Paul’s Before and After – 12 Week Transformation Challenge

Happy Tuesday   I hope you all had a wonderful Queens birthday!   Doesn’t the Queen look good for 91 years old?  - Not that it is the actual Queens birthday 😉   Did you know, the reason the Queen’s birthday is celebrated on the first Monday of June is because of the weather. A tradition started in 1748 by George II. George was born in November and felt the weather would be too cold for a birthday parade so he moved it to June. All British Sovereign's now have the option of celebrating an ‘official’ birthday and a ‘real’...

Happy Monday everyone! Hope you all had a great weekend. Krystie here today!!

Waiting for Paul to put his make-up on, we missed the sunrise, but headed out anyway. Along past the water, through to Haumoana, then ended up in Havelock, where we caught a ride back to our place from my parents! The bike ride all in all took us a leisurely 1 hour 40. We then headed out for brunch.  ...

Can you be FAT and FIT?             Last Wednesday a major UK study came out indicating that you cannot be fat and fit. The study that took 3.5 million Brits health records and data between the years or 1995 and 2015 found that those with excess fat increase the risk of suffering from coronary heart disease by half even when blood pressure and cholesterol were normal. People regarded as fit but fat...
