Happy Holidays to you my valued reader. I hope you had a lovely Christmas and Boxing Day, and you are looking forward to a great 2015. I can’t complain about my Christmas experience this year but I have to admit it was very different. This year we didn’t do BBQs or eat ourselves to constipation like we almost always do every other year, but we had a lovely time together as a family; yes, that includes the dog too.
It's that time of year again. December has come and with it all the joys of Christmas. This year somehow feels different in the sense that the Christmas mood somehow feels dampened. Actually it seems like as years go by, or as we grow older the excitement about Christmas reduces. I don’t know exactly why but I guess the pressure that comes with the season could be part of the reason.
The word “Ebola” has been on almost everyone’s lips in the last few months especially after it started affecting people in parts of the world where it was never expected to touch. I have to admit that when I first heard of the disease a few years ago, I never thought it would be such a serious threat to the rest of the world since it was just in West Africa.
If there is anything that is challenging, it is losing fat, especially belly fat after you have accumulated enough of it. It reaches a point where you get disgusted by the image you see in the mirror when you look at yourself because you just can’t believe how much fat you have accumulated around you. Well, I guess not everyone feels this way but I have to admit this is something I have been dealing with for the last month or so and even though I know I didn’t accumulate the Michelin tyres around my tummy in a day, I still wish I could get rid of them in one workout.
