Runday Monday- Ramadan fitness.

Here goes. Is it possible to fit in a workout whilst fasting during the day, and juggling everything else a working mother has to do during such a month? Shall give it a go, I suppose.

And on the sporadic gym trips the best part was the stretching. Oh yeah! I also venture into yoga occasionally and I guess everyone... Continue Reading →
