The lucky number 7 – Fitness Circuit

Again I found myself at that strange point in the morning. I got up a little too late to hit the gym but I had a little too much time before work.

Obviously a lot of the male species got broners (defined below) when watching ‘300’. Because it was like looking at a room full of individuals who you would swap anything to look like … until you realise what they go through daily with eating arrangements, exercise etc.   You’re a…

Which created the above little number!!!!! Ingredients = Coconut oil A chicken bosum Cayenne pepper Italian spices Salt An avocado a third of a…
