The success diet

So I have had reasonable success when it comes to weight loss in the past few years. Helped and encouraged very much by my wife who works for a famous wellness brand. What’s my point? Throughout my weight loss journey and even today when I weigh myself weekly, I keep an eye on what theContinue reading “The success diet”

Why giving 110% is not helping you succeed.

You must have heard this, if not succumbed to the cliche and muttered the phrase “giving 110%” at some point in the past. The thing is, it is unrealistic, in fact mathematically impossible so, it needs to stop to allow for your success to happen. We’re gonna need some metaphors for this discussion, and youContinue reading “Why giving 110% is not helping you succeed.”

One man went back to work…

Having pretty much preached the positives from my time on Furlough (sorry) it was with some trepidation that Friday 1st May arrived. It wasn’t that I didn’t want to go back, although with a gun to my head I could have quite happily taken another month off. It was that I didn’t want to letContinue reading “One man went back to work…”

In a world of messy hair and prickly chins

I’m writing today with reference to the workwear choices and lack of attention regarding grooming which seems to be attached to working at home. Priorities have slipped Whilst your new routine probably affords you more time and hopefully, you have managed to squish something constructive into those extra magic minutes, somehow your normal hair, shaveContinue reading “In a world of messy hair and prickly chins”

One man went Furlough: The Final Countdown

I found out a few days back that my time on Furlough would come to an end on Thursday and as of the 1st May I’d be back in the saddle with the job I love so much.I’d like to start by saying thanks to anyone who has liked or commented on my posts overContinue reading “One man went Furlough: The Final Countdown”

One man went Furlough: The gift that keeps giving

So after my initial frustrations with the additional 3 weeks of lockdown, I’m planning once more to turn barriers into opportunities and really hoping to pull some great positives out the bag. The first fortnight of my leave has been productive to say the least and I’m excited to see what else I can achieveContinue reading “One man went Furlough: The gift that keeps giving”

One man went Furlough: The sun always shines on the inside

As many of you know I don’t eat chocolate, but I am still partial to sweet treats and have successfully slaughtered a bag of marshmallows instead of a seasonal foil wrapped egg, in a period of 24 hours. Eeeek! Let’s rewind a little though, the past two weeks I have completed more exercise than everContinue reading “One man went Furlough: The sun always shines on the inside”

One man went Furlough: Make Mondays great again

Monday’s have long been the butt of all jokes. The tricky second album after a cracker of a two day off debut, but even if they don’t follow the form that you’ve previously been tapping your foot to, let’s not write them off. They are typically a different pace, the words are different but theContinue reading “One man went Furlough: Make Mondays great again”

One man went Furlough: Welcome to the 7 day weekend.

After a late rush of positivity yesterday, I dragged my backside out of bed this morning and set about my regular jog, before the day starts properly. My trip took me past some of the biggest houses in our town, massive driveways, a brace of cars with personal plates and quite often a sign writtenContinue reading “One man went Furlough: Welcome to the 7 day weekend.”

One man went Furlough: Day 3, or is it 4 or 2?

I’ll be honest I woke up and couldn’t be arsed this morning, I slept badly, skipped my jog and had run out of milk for breakfast. I am sat writing this on my permitted exercise time – a most pleasant solo cycle to the beach. Which seems to have done the trick. Trying to keepContinue reading “One man went Furlough: Day 3, or is it 4 or 2?”
