New Year, New Blog

Happy New Year

New Years Day. So create a blog. Well, there wasn’t much good on TV, Sherlock aside ๐Ÿ˜‰

I’ve been considering writing a blog around my interests for a while now, and today I actually had some spare time to think about what I want to write about, and to get things in place. Like a domain name; gotta have one of those. Blog software; fairly necessary. I may also be a geek, but I don’t want to have to hand craft posts. Life is far too short!

I suspect this site will cover my training, my eating, and my home life. I like lifting heavy. As my sports massage therapist will attest to. Ask her about her thumbs and elbows when I’ve been in! Kettlebell sport is something I took up in 2013, and I’m loving the physical challenge of that. My eating was like most children growing up in the 80s in the UK (crispy pancakes anyone?), then used to be OK, went a bit wrong for a while (long story), and has been back on track for the last couple of years. However I’m now learning about eating for training and getting lean as well. My home life involves a fantastic husband and cats. Currently three of the little nutters, all quite young, after we lost our older pair in 2011. I love them all (aww)!

My day job (and sometimes hobby) is writing software. Very much a sedentary role. I don’t think swearing at code burns a lot of calories, though it may get the heart rate up. I doubt much of that will appear here. I have professional outlets for that sort of thing. And quite frankly, after a day of wrestling with the latest mobile device “features” I often don’t have the mental energy to do more in the evening.

Posts will be random. Sorry about that. It’s the realities of life for me ๐Ÿ™‚ Still, keep tuned. Hopefully there will be something of interest to you in my ramblings and photos.

Oh, and have an awesome 2014!
