The Most Important Thing You’re (Probably) Not Doing.

You work hard. I know you do. You have a lot going on; a lot of pressure on your shoulders. Work is busy, life is busy, you’re needed. You’re valued for what you bring to the world and as such, you’re in demand. Maybe you train hard too. You put pressure on yourself to do […]

Life – A Huge, Inconvenient Opportunity To Practice

When we’re working on something that’s challenging and takes a lot of mental and physical energy – like body change – we can find ourselves wishing that we didn’t have to do everything else as well – that the washing would do itself, the kids would take care of themselves, work would be cancelled for […]

Is Willpower Bulls**t?

It gets a bad rap, willpower. A lot of people think it’s rubbish, but I disagree. The only reason why it comes over as rubbish is because we put the whole of our efforts to lose weight and get fit on its shoulders alone. Let’s get one thing straight. Willpower is self control and self […]

Many of you will know that I struggle with the whole dog-walking scenario, on account of the fact that my littlest, Buzzy, goes bananas every time he sees, hears or thinks he’s seen (yes, really – he does actually get all het up at thin air) another dog. I’ve tried many different permutations of getting […]

Developing The Confidence To Crush Your Health Goals (in a good way) – Part 1

Confidence in health and fitness. What does that look like? Here’s a hint: it doesn’t look like skinny. It also doesn’t look like strong. It doesn’t look like “clean” eating. And it doesn’t look like never having cravings. The things we sell ourselves on in the world of health and fitness are all the byproducts […]

Why Health Is Like Playing Super Mario

Super Mario is one of those almost universal reference points. Most people I’ve met are familiar with the little moustachioed plumber who bounds around in his dungarees in Mario Land. His task is to get from beginning to end of the level whilst collecting as many gold coins and power ups as poss and not […]

Put That Stick Down!

I was chatting to a few of my buddies yesterday about work and one of them really shocked me. He’s a professional guy, a couple of decades older than me, pretty masculine and very intelligent, and the issue he wanted to work on that day was one I never would have thought he’d pick in […]

Good Gosh, Would You Just Stop Ignoring Your Progress?!?

One of the most important things you can ever do is look behind you and see how far you’ve come. Otherwise, you’ll never appreciate that you currently hold in your hands something you’ve always wanted. Also, it’s something that winds me up like mad, because people don’t do it and then get all maudlin over […]

When You Lose Your Workout Mojo

I’ll be honest, it’s a complete a**e when it happens. You’re cruising along, getting stuff done. Staying consistent with your good habits and kickingass in the gym. And then, out of the blue one morning, you realise something horrible. Your workout mojo has GONE. Even the thought of lifting a weight or pounding out some […]
