5 tips to assist you with your recovery from training: 1. Get enough sleep! This is one the big rocks of recovery. Your chances of injury are significantly higher if you are not getting enough sleep. Aim for AT LEAST 7-8 hours per night. Studies show that this will improve cognitive function, focus, decision making, energy and hormone regulation. All of these things can help with weight loss too!!! 2. Hydrate. This is also so, so important! Humans are made up of ~60% water. Making sure we are well hydrated helps with blood circulation & by flushing out toxins or other... Read More..
My nemesis For me, going to the supermarket to do food shopping is one of the most unmotivating and annoying things on my to-do list for the week. So much so I try and drag it out to every two weeks if possible haha I think it goes back to the whole personal space thing I spoke about a couple of weeks ago. The thought of pushing that damn trolley around in circles whilst I’m in close proximity to others isn’t high on my ideal list of fun things to do. Some people love it though! Can’t fathom how...

Time to get a little deep... It’s probably taken me a good 30 years but I’ve now started to really embrace the fact that everything in this life is impermanent. It’s arguably the most basic lesson we learn yet we unfortunately have a knack of learning it the hard way. There’s not a single thing on this planet that doesn’t have an end date as the law of impermanence will eventually take its course. It truly rules everything. Moments will come and go. Days and milestones will pass. Our surroundings will change. Our goals will change. Our job will... Read More..
Bon Appetit So I’ve just found out that this is actually a thing. There’s people out there that go to restaurants to eat (as you do) but they do it without any clothes on. Like stark naked. Everyone in the room is nude. Waiters, waitresses, bar tenders, chefs and of course the guests... You kidding me or what? Who’s idea was this? and why? And who are these places aimed at? Couples, families, surely not children... surely not? Also why am I even writing about this and how is it relative to health and fitness? Well I’m not sure about... Read More..
IF YOU GET OFFENDED EASILY YOU MIGHT WANNA SKIP THIS ONE... For those of you that don’t already know I’m not a big fan of social media. Pretty much despise it. Yes I have Facebook and Instagram accounts but I use them sparingly. I’ll put up the odd post but to be honest there’s so many better things I prefer to do than get distracted by it all. By the way, 1 out of every 7 people on the planet has Facebook. Crazy stat! I can see how it serves a purpose for a lot of people though. It keeps... Read More..
Piss off will ya!!! I make sure I get the recommended check up and clean every 6 months as I know the importance of having healthy teeth and gums. Our teeth are essential to healthy living. We need them to eat and help breakdown food. We also need them to speak. Just those two reasons alone are important enough if you ask me. I also make sure I brush, floss and rinse twice daily so when it comes to dentist time there’s no real major issues and I’m not stuck in that chair for too long. You see, going to... Read More..
