Get fit: the best thing I did in 2012!
The old facade with new block in distance
Looking back at 2012 at my highlights of the year I certainly have to include winning a Born Digital Award for the best investigative story and the IWC Personality of the Year. However, the best and most important decision I made was to get fit again.
Too many hours in front of the computer and not enough exercise inevitably took their toll. Fortunately when the restored Forest Hill (London SE23) pools opened in mid-September, I decided to use the new fitness gym included in the new facility as regularly as possible. Less than four months on I can certainly feel the benefits: my blood pressure is down dramatically, I have lost five or six kilos and I feel a lot more lively.
I intend to continue exercising in 2013 – this will be a New Year Resolution that I will keep!
