The test results are in and they are… actually rather ok

This morning I had my InBody checkup done to check the December damage. I must say, I was quite surprised by the results. It looked better than I expected. A total score of 90 out of 100. Quite subjective, but still happy with it šŸ™‚ My blood pressure was almost by the book, 127/83.Ā My blood pressure has always been OK, also when I am pretty stressed out. So not too...

I used to use Live Writer a lot when writing blogposts, but it seems it hasn’t been updated in a while. 2012 it says, but it sure as hell doesn’t work like it should in Windows 8. I find it easier to write my post in a desktop application like...
