Today is day 15 of Body Beast
workout: Beast abs & Build Shoulders

Feeling good about this being the start of week three and tomorrow being a rest day will hopefully make it even a smooth transition to the next block in the workout set next week. Pretty much all the exercises I did the same except for one exercise I was able to go up in weight. Progress even if just a little progress is still a step in the right direction. Hope everyone is enjoying their 5th of May.

Nearly 2 years strong into this game.

What keeps me going? No it’s not what I see in the changing in the mirror. But it’s what has changed between my ears. 

Education, discipline and happiness. 

Master it, work hard at it, and if you don’t love it, what the fuck are you wasting your time for?

There are so only so many fitblrs, blogs, guides, diets, nutrition plans, progress pictures you can follow and look up too. 

But you gotta find what works for you.

 And remember, WE ALL STARTED SOMEWHERE AND REALLY WE ARE JUST BLAGGING THIS LIKE EVERYONE ELSE!

REMEMBER THE PERSERVERANCE YOU USED TO GET THROUGH THIS PLACE?

Remember the set backs?

Remember how you kept moving forward even if you couldn’t see progress?

Remember the pride you felt for getting it done?

Yeah… now go kill those weights with that same will power

A selfie after every workout I’ve done so far this year.

Just a gentle reminder to anyone setting themselves new fitness related New Years resolutions..

Don’t worry, even to us guys who’ve been doing it a while, it never gets easier. You just get better. We’re all in the same boat.

Keep going, you’re doing better than the people on the sofa.

YOU can become apart of something great.

Help me grow this incredible network I’m so proud to be involved in.

Are you gay, bi, trans, queer or just generally fucking amazing? Do you have a story, visions or achievements to share? I’m looking to build a rainbow coloured collective of kick ass individuals making positive and healthy decisions in their life. Fitblrs with a difference.

I have MY story on my blog, but I’m looking for yours. You will feature the ‘Your Stories’ tab on my page, a long with a back link to your blog.

Please, share, spread the word, but more importantly, share your story with me. Inbox me for details!

I DID IT.

I survived my first ever CrossFit competition. 

…In fact, I did more than survive. Out of 24 teams, my partner and I came 4th! 4th!The other top three where a mixture of amazing atheletes and people I had seen compete before.. and I was just behind them.

I can’t quite fucking believe it. Thank you ALL for your lovely messages of encouragement. Photos/info to follow soon. The workouts were disgusting, I’m sure you’ll love to hear about all the pain I went through.

Fuel yo’ self.

Top, my breakfast every day. Bottom, a normal lunch I would consume.

Let me be upfront honest. If you are not having breakfast, you are doing life wrong. 

Sorry, let me rephrase that. If you are not eating correctly,you are doing life wrong, you will make no progress. See no differences. Make no gains, or improve your health.


Nutrition is NUMBER 1. Think, before you train, what are you running on? 

I eat according to my training (high intensity, muscle taxing, 5-6 times a week, very physically demanding) I must eat to match that. (Regularly, large portions, complex carbs, high protein and natural fat content). Wether you want to loose fat, gain muscle, increase your fitness or are just starting out, you must:

  1. Eat breakfast. This is number 1 for a reason.
  2. Consume protein, complex carbs (like fruit and veg) and natural fats. 
  3. Fats. Yes I said fats. Natural fats, like avocados, olives, nuts, so forth.
  4. Cut out the shit. Do not buy it and you won’t have it staring at you in your cupboard. Is it whole and natural? Buy it, consume it. 
  5. Eat regularly, sensible portions, and regularly. Again, regularly. Regularly. 

It’s been a year since I started this blog and finally found the courage to change my life.

I found a new sport. I found what I want to do in life. I’m the happiest I’ve ever been.

I’m inspiring individuals and I’m showing the world being gay is not synonymous with being athletically incapable.

Believe in your self.
