100 day challenge – pull-ups

I’ve been meaning to set myself this challenge for a while, and today seems as good a day as any to make a start! Here are the rules to my 100 day challenge:

  • Do one thing every day for 100 days to see how much you can improve
  • Keep it simple so it’s easy to stick to
  • Make sure your improvements are measurable in some way
  • Post it somewhere public to keep yourself accountable – even if you just post what you’re going to do in the comments below

Why I moved to New Zealand on a whim

Moving from England to New Zealand was probably the scariest thing I’ve ever done. I hadn’t even been outside of Europe before, but somehow I found myself making the decision to move permanently to the opposite side of the world.

I had always liked the idea of living somewhere with a warmer climate and better scenery, but it wasn’t until one fateful day in Manchester that the idea started to change from a dream to reality. After eating a delicious, hangover-curing fried breakfast with extra black pudding, my friend and I were walking in the glorious sunshine discussing how much better life was when it was sunny.
