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...

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...

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...

After suffering from chronic back pain for the last couple of months and it getting significantly worse over Christmas, I finally admitted defeat and saw my local GP...

Recently I've come to the realisation that although people "warn" you about becoming a first-time parent, they never really tell the whole truth...

I have a 7 week old boy. He's actually starting to become a pretty cool little dude and although this little person was th...

Lo and behold, "Terry" isn't here yet! We were expecting our little bundle of mayhem (hopefully not) to arrive on Sunday just gone (15th Oct) and 4 days later the little bugger is still not showing signs of arrival...

I always joked at the start of the pregnancy - and n...

We've entered the final 2 weeks before Baby Rodgers aka "Terry" arrives and although birth could now happen at pretty much any time, I'm still in that weird place between denial and excitement. 

I've been asking myself a lot lately if what I am feeling is normal for a f...

The last couple of Saturdays have been spent at NCT classes. Granted, it's not my usual choice of things to do on a Saturday (it's often a lie-in/eat cheat food/chill/get a bit drunk day in my house) but it was recommended by my wife as we're both first-time parents an...

I hurt my back. Again. The last thing I want to be is a young dad with a bad back! 

As you all know, this is a very common injury and can happen to anyone, at any time and for whatever stupid reason it decides to. We use our backs all day, every day and due to the...
