Again I found myself at that strange point in the morning. I got up a little too late to hit the gym but I had a little too much time before work.

The circuit can…

An open letter to fitness goals.

March 6, 2016

There is a traditional fable detailing how a gaggle of blind men felt an area, but only one part, of a large elephant. After they compared notes – learning they didn’t compare – they were in complete disagreement. Why the alternative start to a blog post? Obviously radio 4 has got to me. Or just like one of the blind men when it comes to the understanding your goal in…

The Spartan work out – am I ripped yet?

February 28, 2016

  Today… I was procrastinating (get off your high horse – we all do it) and I came across a video on the ‘Spartan workout’. Obviously a lot of the male species got broners (defined below) when watching ‘300’.

Chicken burger with mushroom bun

Today I stepped away from the conventional burger bun and unleashed the BFG of the mushroom world, the  portobello mushroom.

Which created the above little number!!!!! Ingredients = Coconut oil A chicken bosum Cayenne pepper Italian spices Salt An avocado a third of a…

Alc_h_l – sometimes alcohol is the answer

February 13, 2016

I like to drink socially. I also like being healthy. Yes, I know these two things are not 100% aligned, but that’s between me and my god and the rugby culture I was brought up in. Because of this I thought I would detail the best options for a healthier night (please note the below doesn’t make it healthy- it makes it healthier for a diet!). Did you know a…
