My Do It In 12 Journey – 3 Weeks To Go!

I can’t believe that there are only 3 weeks to go in my Do It In 12 journey! I’m not going to say it’s been perfect; there have definitely been highs and lows, moments of self-sabotage, a harsh word (or two), but also some real feel good moments. Lessons Learnt So Far Exercise needs to part […]
