Hello, I hope you are well!
The health of western society is incomprehensible poor. In the UK alone 66% of people have overweight fat ratios.
I had become increasingly frustrated at the lack of direction in the medical community (who mostly do care), government (who generally don't give a nutsack) and infuriated with celebrity imbeciles, effectively dictating health policy, to line their pockets with huge wads of cash, to the detriment of the mental and physical health of most of the western world. A celebrities ability to help those in need is akin to a Polpot and Pinochet lovechild, having a genetic and/or nurtured disposition toward compassion.
After what felt like years of worrying and moaning, I got bored of my own stupid brain harping on about stuff. So I thought I would at least try to take positive action. I always expect to fail, so that’s a good starting point!
The first challenge was to write up a report of my ideas and then somehow get it to the British Ministry for health. I thought it may help if I show that I could potentially make a publicity film of it. So I created a quick video showreel. See below:
Hello! My wife, Rebecca, has already written a blog post about this day. We thought it would be a healthy challenge for me to do a blog piece about it too!
Okay here goes… So we set out on our travels, with the aim for Alfred’s nap of the day to be in the car. That worked well. The journey was decent. We saved money by packing sandwiches. I sneaked a bottle of one my favourite wheat beers in the cool bag - it’s a USA take on a Belgian wheat beer, called Blue Moon. Num num. Except it kept getting attacked by a wasp. I hate wasps, they are pigs. But I do genuinely like pigs, they are not wasps.
Hello everyone! There is a lot of info-twaddle out there in the area of health and fitness. I try to base everything I practise on sound science research and trial and error, then apply it to the real world. I was not into sport or fitness when I was young, I did not get really serious about it until I was 32.
My tips for helping people prepare for starting fitness and a healthier lifestyle, are sometimes more downbeat and counter to many trainers and coaches out there (especially famous ones). When they tell you that getting fit is easy, they are lying. It is also a load of old guff-tunnel that by thinking positive you can become wonder woman, or wolverine. You won't. If it's just a case of thinking positive and go get, why the fudge am I not travelling to Alpha Centauri in my super space battleship. I'll tell you why, because it's all balls. The positive thought brigade is a racket run by berks, who have already achieved their objectives in life. ANYWAY [slaps own face].
