Difficult De-cember

I liked the idea of Liz' De-cember goals, so thought I'd throw one out there of my own. I'm going to be focusing on adding more difficult exercise to my training. I'm pretty happy with my food intake at the moment but need to bump things up on the exercise front. I worked out that I'm only doing about two hours per week of 'difficult' exercise at the moment (I don't count foam rolling, dynamic warm-ups or walking TJ as 'difficult'). I'd like to get that up to about six hours per week. I won't be doing it all at once (as I'm likely to fall apart - plus I find it's easier to be consistent with my exercise if I only add a small blocks at a time) but from Monday onwards I'll start adding a bit more 'difficult' exercise each training day.

Sounds like a good plan - and the slowly, slowly works well too.
:) cheers Liz ;)

How do you prepare your tofu?

Thanks Liz!

Hi Kathleen, the Soyco brand I've been buying lately is marinated so I just eat it straight out of the packet, but I'm thinking about trying to make some 'tofu feta' (tofu marinated in apple cider vinegar, lemon and salt). Just have to find a recipe...
