Stop With The Numbers!….A Rant.

Grab a cuppa….we need to chat. Firstly….I’m saying this because I care. Because you’re worth more than you may think, your wellbeing is at the forefront of my mind – always. That’s why I show up here. Secondly, I’m saying this because things need to change. Immediately. I’ve been really uncomfortable about this for a LONG time. Perhaps you have too, but unless more of us speak up and say “no, this is a load of shit” nothing will change. Attitudes will remain the same, as will the guilt, self-deprecation and comparison. What the actual fuck am I on about…?

PROTEIN POWDER: Should I use one?

  So…protein powders. We’ve all heard about them, perhaps some of you use them. Or perhaps you believe they are only for the hard-core gym goers and the beefy dudes who throw heavy weights around. While this is true to a certain extent I think they’re excellent and can be really useful for a number of people and situations. Protein in this form means that amino-acids (the protein building blocks for …um…our WHOLE bodies) are highly bio-available to our system. They are quickly and easily absorbed and utilized which is why it is a great option if you are training. But also great if you fall into these categories…

Okay, I Think We’re Done Here!

Done with 2016 that is. Holy shitballs it’s been a big one hasn’t it? A tough one..? A challenging one perhaps? Yep, I hear you. For me personally it’s been full of unpleasant stuff and all of the lessons. Like…freakin’ all of them! I made a decision earlier in the year that my priority in among all this shitty stuff is to come out as a better person – “It’s now all about me” I recall saying. Whatever that takes to get there I need to do it; and I did. Often a time of reflection and throw-away New Years resolutions, I like to reflect back and choose 3 words to describe my year. So I though I might share them with you here: CHALLENGE | CHANGE | GROWTH   Allow me to share a little….
