Elle and I are sure that his appearance is changing day by day. The in-laws even mentioned that his face is starting to look more like mine than Elle’s...poor boy! Now this may just be psychological but it is still pretty cool.  He slept very well last night. Every 2-3 hours he was awake...

Daddy’s Diaries: Day 2

First full day completed including last night. I feel like we’ve hit a lot success today, and with every passing minute it feels like we’re getting to know Roan even more. The more we know him, the easier it should be to keep him happy 😃....hopefully!  I don’t know how long this will last...

Can Dad Get Morning Sickness?

I am a dad-to-be and I’d like to confirm that I have never received morning sickness.

Are Fitness Models Healthy?

Now...this is a little bug’bare of mine - the actual health of the so-called fitness models that spread our magazines.

Lucky or Unlucky: Perspective is Personal

Glass half full or glass half empty.  Everybody’s perspective on life and events can change. What we see, hear, feel, or experience may resonate with us the feelings of positivity, or negativity.  Nobody is right, nobody is wrong - it’s all down to personal opinion.  However, can you...

Will A Baby Affect My Training?

Stating this blog I had one main focus - to show all fathers and guardians out there that it is still possible to be fit, healthy, and confident whilst raising a child. Obviously, talk is cheap as I do not have a child, yet - so the other focus on the blog is to document how having...
Hello and welcome to my blog 😃 I am a new father, born 1st April 2019, and started my blog as a creative outlet and opportunity to discuss pregnancy, becoming a parent, and how I am trying to maintain my fitness levels around our new baby.
