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...

Happy families. Nuff. Said.

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...

Despite not training over the Festive Period - I took 2 weeks off to spend properly with Kat and...

I've always been a pretty festive fellow who gets very excited about Christmas; I absolutely love this time of year, almost in a Buddy the Elf-type fashion! However, this year things were a little somewhat different...

Having a very young baby at this time of year chang...

I know it’s a bit of a bad attitude, but I like to think of December as an “off month”; we’re so close to Christmas and all the necessary festivities with friends and family, etc. and there’s so many new food and drink ideas in all the shops, that it can be quite tempt...

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...

There, I said it. I have Poor Body Image, don't judge me; in fact, do judge me, I don't care - or at least I'm training myself not to. 

So many people nowadays will suffer from negative views about their self image, especially with the continuing rise of social media an...

So exactly one week ago today, my wife and I welcomed Finn into the world and we are officially in love with him!

 

Despite being 11 days overdue in the end, he was born a healthy 7lbs 5oz, which we were actually quite surprised about - surely he’d be bigger???

The labou...

From my experience as a human being and noticing stuff over the years, it’s apparent that most expectant couples will name their unborn child something that obviously isn’t going to be their real name once welcomed into this world... A fetus name if you will; something...

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...

October 3, 2017

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...
