“The day starts at 8.30am…with a Joe Wicks work out with my son…and walk together in the evening… nutrition and exercise have become a much needed lifestyle change that I would like to continue… I’ve lost half a stone so far!” Tracey Golden.
“I have tried to exercise Mon-Fri as I’m lucky to have some equipment. No insta transformations here though, the beer and food have literally outweighed the training. I look forward to putting on some work trousers and a shirt – less excited about trying to button them up” Richard Bradley.
“At first I was overwhelmed with the ‘helpful’ soundbites about what we should do….Joe Wicks, Jamie Oliver et al …after I stopped shouting at the TV I decided to have a go at yoga. (Exploring the mind, glad that’s not on video!) Louise Plant.
“Lockdown has made us love our house more…we’ve had 3 years of rushing in and out of it daily due to ‘normal life’ …we have recently dug up one of the lawns and planted some veg. “I have eaten way too much food like homemade paella (shown above). However, I’ve also eaten loads of chocolate & crisps which I wouldn’t normally eat. COVID’s fault…! Richard Bradley.
“I ordered a new computer desk and sunlounger…from now on I would like to be known as ‘The queen of flatpack!” Tracey Golden. “Silence! – for those that know me I am not a silent person. After over 30 years working in and around bustling offices I have had to come to terms with extended periods of silence punctuated with dog barks.
I have taken up Persian cooking, exploring new flavours and discovering new music on Spotify. Think I may be a little bit culturally richer when we emerge! Louise Plant.
“After a real test to get some bread flour and ending up buying a 16kg bag of artisan white flour, I found I’m not bad at baking bread!
Its the weirdest thing, knocking some flour, water and yeast together, bashing it around for 10 minutes, leaving it in a warm place then coming back to the creature of the blue lagoon 3 hours later after its tripled in size. Love it.” Mark Thewlis
“I hate gardening, its Dave’s job! But I actually got a lot of satisfaction from this” Justine Evans.
