Week 01: Alternative Exercise

July 25, 2011 Leave a comment

  Injured again. There’s a  clicking in my left shoulder after I’ve lifted 25 kg. It’s been going on for 2 weeks. Now I’m not able to lift weights. Annoying.

I’ll give it a month to heal up. But I’ll need to do something, otherwise I’ll get remarkably fat. Like what’s happened to me now. Sad smile

I’ll focus on my core (I know I’ve said this very often), pylometrics for power, body-weight exercises for strength, and runs to build stamina.

    Really Bad Copy

    July 24, 2011 Leave a comment

    This writer should be shot, drawn and quartered. Or at least left to drown in cough syrup.

    ‎”Play a lead role in working with the digital agency to execute the communications strategy, taking into consideration cross-touchpoint integration to ensure that the synergies between the touchpoints are fully leveraged.”

    As a friend of mine says, “Someone tell me what the fuck does everything after the comma mean? Sorry but my communications skills are unable to decipher such gibberish. Guess my touchpoints aren’t fully synergised. Oh well.”
