This is the month that was…

…January. New year, new challenges! January is the month for setting goals – I say goals as resolutions for me are there to be broken. As with many people, I focusing on my health as I *may* have overindulge last year with everything going on and somehow managed to put on a stone. So January 1st, the hubby told me about this boxing fitness “game” he could get a demo for on the Nintendo Switch (Mr Knight is a bit of a gamer). I gave this game a try and promptly reserved myself a copy from Argos. And I’ve done it 6 out of 7 nights a week…boy I ache from doing it!! But it’s a great stress reliever after a rubbish day 🥊🥊

So have you guys got any goals you’ve set yourself?
