Frustrated? Good.

If progress (or your lack there of) is frustrating you. Good. Driving home after a long ass, caffeine deprived day I was in a shitty mood. Not your classic commuter rage. No bulging temple or red face to be seen here folks. Just that low hum of anger that tints the way you see the world. To get the ball … Read More

Don’t Eat the Cookie

To be honest, I don’t even want to eat the cookie. Sitting at this beautiful café in the middle of the gold coast you could easily be fooled into thinking that the world is perfect. The sun is shining through the floor to ceiling glass to my right and the awning is just perfectly obscuring that superb sunlight from my … Read More

Back to the barbell

For me the barbell is a base point. Like a homing pigeon I return here time and time again. A home base. A recurring theme from a younger, more vibrant stage. A comfortably uncomfortable pair of shoes that you love slipping into when the time is right. But why was the time ever wrong? What caused you to stray into … Read More

Fishing sucks, if all you want is fish.

I have been thinking hard on process vs product goals for months and have had some huge realisations. Setting your “goal” is about as useless as tits on a bull if you don’t then set forth the requisite steps needed to achieve it. Then make THAT your goal. Sometimes (read as most of the time) the steps needed are not … Read More

Early morning musings

As I sit writing  this for you at 4:30 in the morning, I want you to know I am happy. Sitting, smiling like a fool tapping away on my keyboard on this dark, cold July morning. This is not a story of how great my life is and how yours pales in comparison I promise you. I don’t own a … Read More

The day after perfect: Don’t worry if it breaks

This health and fitness thing isn’t easy. Its simple. Frustratingly so at times. But it isn’t easy. I want to talk to you about the day after I last decided to really “hit it” for a month. I totally flopped it. Waking up that morning, everything was looking perfect. I had a short day at work, my food was prepped … Read More

Don’t be a donkey: Fitness advice from the 14th century

Don’t be a donkey. Move your ASS! This one is going to go way back. 14th century sort of way back, when French Philosopher Jean Buridan described the paradox of free will using a donkey. This poor donkey (or Buridan’s Ass as it later became known) was stuck in a dilemma of choice one day. Equally hungry and thirsty, and … Read More

Fitness tips from a Lioness

Sleep, it will make you happy. A few hours short here and there and you are at a disadvantage (whether you feel it or not) My point: I bet you don’t sleep enough. AND I bet you are slowly becoming grumpy and fat. Sleep is natures wonder drug that is going to transform you from a tired, overweight, stressed out pessimist. … Read More

Why are you even here?

Before you run off, please pause. This is not another ‘find your purpose, find your place’ piece. Its not even a ‘go and buy this book’ post, although you probably should. By the end of this article I just want you thinking. Sitting for a moment and really drilling down into why the hell you want to be fit and … Read More
