Dobbs is still kicking it with the smoothies. My nutrabullet is taking a beating…but in my opinion it’s 100 times better than a blender due to its ability to extract all the nutrients with ease. Lately I have been cleansing my body with celery. It reportedly has so many benefits it’s was hard not to […]Read More Still smooth….
Last week my body was destroyed by the Noro virus. I lived for three days on the bathroom floor it was brutal. It also put a complete stop to my workouts. Jumping up and down in that state surely would of created a Jackson pollock inspired masterpiece from floor to ceiling. It did however have […]Read More Time to nourish…
Hearing “Daddy!” Screamed with excitement when I come home each day from work is one of the best feelings in the world. Seeing his smile warms my heart every time and I couldn’t imagine life without him. Shocking as it may seem….i actually never wanted children. True Fact. The thought of giving up my freedom […]Read More Joys of being a Dad.
My snacking has gone from bad to worse lately. Mainly because I’m not prepared. Chocolate bars and biscuits are a fav in my household – purchased mainly for school snacks…..but within easy reach of Dobbs they soon live in his belly to destroy the hunger. Luckily, with help, I found a beast of a product […]Read More Can’t do without a treat or two…..

Dobbs was so wrong. Exercise breaks muscle down, hence why we get […]Read More Loving these rest days.
Wow! This ones a blast. High intensity workouts followed by weight training. The best of both worlds. It did worry me doing pure weight training programs that my cardiovascular system wasn’t getting a big enough hit…but on the plus side I loved the growth just lifting was giving. Typically, a HIIT workout will range from […]Read More The workout I’ve been waiting for….
I love fitness. But I try not to let it dominate my life. My biggest problem is calories…..I don’t get enough of them to get the results I want….it has taken me a long time to realise this. But it’s never too late for change, it’s called progress. I’ve learned so much over the years […]Read More Progress won’t happen over night….
I’ve always resisted the urge to buy protein bars – mainly because the ones I have bought in the past have always been chunky, dry and hard to digest. Often leaving a yucky feeling in my belly 🤮. This could be down to the fact that I always bought cheap bars as I refused to […]Read More Snacking issues…
Alittle change of topic to the usual, but something I feel strongly about. Everyone has good and bad days. It’s normal. It can be a very stressful world we live in and the pressures can build up.
