This is DADBOarD

A journey into fatherhood, one ab muscle at a time...

Welcome to DADBOarD, thanks for stopping by!

This is my blog, aimed at all you dads out there - whatever stage of parenting you're at - who, like the rest of us, probably struggle to balance normal life and looking/feeling good.

I’m here to share with you my journey from a soon-to-be dad to a fully-fledged father, all the while trying to keep fit and not get that so-feared DadBod! I'm passionate about living a healthy lifestyle and I'm here conducting my own experiment to show you that we can stay (or even get) fit, feel great and not bust a gut doing it, all whilst enjoying life and starting/having a family!

I hope you enjoy reading about my experiences...

We’re now well and truly into the New Year and I hope any resolutions you made are still very much alive…

I’m still doing my best to eat Primally and do my morning routines, despite having a set back earlier in the week, when my first scheduled cheat turned from a weeke...

Despite knowing in advance that all ideas about training, eating well and abstaining from booze during the week would go completely out the window over the Christmas break, I took the opportunity to quit the gym as my New Year's Resolution...

Most people (and by most pe...

Last month I shared with you my thoughts on accountability and how each one of us is responsible for our actions and making things happen – especially when it comes to what we do with our time and how this can either positively or negatively affect our physical (and me...

Once again I find myself needing to pull my finger out of my ass and get on with writing a very long-overdue blog post…

Ok, so this one isn’t going to be about my experiences on Shared Parental Leave, as that’s going to be a bit more in-depth and probably require a lot...

I know I haven’t posted in a while and I have no excuse other than I have thoroughly been enjoying being a stay at home dad, spending quality time with my little man and seeing some major milestones happening...

Recently, the little bugger has decided to start...

This week marks the official first week of my SPL; I’m taking 11 weeks out from work to be a full time dad and use the last (unpaid) part of the 38 weeks leave available to working families...

So far this week has been good, not necessarily too hard but still a tough jo...

HFD to all you dads out there, whether you’re like me and this is your first time, or you’re a seasoned vet of fatherhood and a dab-hand at being a dad. Congrats, this day is for us...

Like every other day with an 8 month old, this day was like no other (plenty of poos,...

So, my "experiment" failed abysmally. 

It all started with good intentions and lasted approximately a week. Not directly through any fault of my own, but as a result of tearing a muscle in my back! 

I know I've complained (numerous times) on here about having a bad back,...

Being a fitness enthusiast, I not only want to look decent (in and out of clothes) but also feel good too. Why put so much effort into getting into "shape" only to feel crappy, tired, bored with food, etc.? It doesn't make any sense to me. Neither does Food Guilt; why...

What I've learned as a new parent is that when it comes to your baby, everything is normal for a newborn. 

In a nutshell, I mean that when you become a parent for the first time, you will worry about everything when it comes to the health of your new arrival. Not o...
