Bioflow Magnetic Therapy Band Review & Giveaway

John quite regularly cycles to work and it’s a good 10 miles each way. He also sometimes runs on his lunch breaks. As I’m sure you can imagine, this puts strain on his body and sometimes his muscles scream at him. John is happy to try new things now and again if there is a chance it will help him and make this amount of exercise that little bit easier on him. When Bioflow got in touch to see if he would like to try one of their sport wristbands, we were both intrigued. Bioflow explain that their magnetic therapy

Wedding Fashion For A Male Wedding Guest

Summer is the season for weddings. Most people want to get married somewhere lovely with nice weather and while UK summers are pretty unpredictable, they’re still a really nice time to get married. John and I don’t go out very much and therefore, John doesn’t really have clothes that are smart enough for weddings. I find that wedding fashion for men can get a bit boring because some places don’t offer much choice. Luckily, the lovely people at Dobell, who have a fantastic range, supplied him with something to wear for this kind of occasion. John is the kind of

When Only Mama Will Do

When one parent stays home with a new baby and the other goes back to work, I think it would be fair to say that the baby will probably end up favouring one parent over the other. Erin has gone through phases a few times when only Mama will do only this time, it’s worse! John had a week off work with me at home after my 2 weeks in hospital following Erin’s birth but in that time, he was the one doing everything for Erin because I couldn’t. John did pretty much every single night feed with Erin, he

Morning Workouts – The Race Against Time

You wouldn’t think it to look at me but I am addicted to exercise, and to food (which you would think if you looked at me!). I need to be doing one of the two and if I am not doing one then I crave the other. I have found that becoming a father has made me lazy and I tend to do more of the latter than the former. I tell myself that it is because I work 5-6 days a week and don’t have the time, but I have friends who have more children than me, and much

Daddy and Erin’s Day at the Zoo

Lyndsey recently went to London for a couple of days and I took the time off work to spend with Erin.  It is such a rare occurrence that we get to spend time alone together that I knew I didn’t just want to sit around at home with her. It just so happens that we have annual passes to the local zoo in Cromer.  Erin loves animals and so do I do it seemed like the perfect thing to do with her. We caught the train and arrived at the zoo for when it opened at 10am.  I thought this

Dealing with my wife’s PND

Roughly 3 months ago I found my wife crying in the dark after an argument we had had. The argument hadn’t made sense to me. I remember not understanding what I had done wrong. Exasperated I had left my wife upstairs alone (she had demanded I leave her alone), but when I went to talk to her ten minutes later I found her crying in the dark. She hugged me and told me she thought she had Post Natal depression. I held her as she sobbed, together in the dark. One thought going through my mind, ‘How could I not

Fitness for Fatherhood: What does it mean?

Ever since I decided to start a segment on the blog dedicated to fitness related issues, and decided to call it ‘Fitness for Fatherhood’, I have been wondering whether I really ought to define what exactly that means to me. To me, Fitness for Fatherhood is really just fitness for life. The ability to lead an extremely active and healthy lifestyle so that I can get the most out of being a father, and so that I can give the most to Erin to help her grow and develop and so that she, and I, can be all the happier

Fitness for Fatherhood: An Introduction

As a new father, it is so important to me that my daughter Erin leads an active and healthy life. Lyndsey has been amazing at making sure Erin eats a wide selection of foods. However, I have always thought that the physical side will fall to me. That isn’t to say that Lyndsey doesn’t do anything active with Erin though. She does. They go swimming together and to yoga every week! As soon as I found out I was going to be a dad one of the first thoughts that crossed my mind was ‘Right, now I need to get
