"If you’re bored of your usual routine in the gym, you should perhaps try something different"
Another social activity will always get the adrenalin going & help get your mind active to set new fitness targets for yourself, as they say,"Don't just sit by the river doing nothing for change is inevitable but progress is not"…
Get away from doing the usual routine like the computer surfing in the evening, by connecting online, we are disconnecting offline, if you’re always on the social networks its not really going to help your cardio fitness goals is it?.
You can learn a trick or two, pick up a few tips here and there, but ultimately your going to miss out on allot more from life as a result.
What critical moments do we miss that we didn't even know passed us by? make sure you get out & about & make an effort to try something you’ve not done before or put aside for a while, because you haven’t made it a priority.

Breakfast tip: The best meal is usually the first meal!
You all know I like my food, I need to fuel up as I am looking forward to a good week & working out 3-4 times (roughly 1hr 15mins each) with weights & cardio & another two 45min foam rolling & mobility & stretching sessions.
Keep it simple & rich in protein & choose your supplements to fit your own personal goals.
"Breakfast"- The most important meal of the day, don't skip It, change it up weekly & start the day as you mean to continue.

Daily alcohol consumption will slow or stop your results, plus the drawbacks are probably going to far outweigh any health benefits.
Your liver can't metabolize alcohol and fat at the same time. It will always get rid of the toxic substance (alcohol) first.
That means that as long as there's alcohol in your system you won't be burning any body fat. If you have one or two drinks, you might stall your fat loss for a few hours. If you have quite a few drinks, it might be as long as four days before you're metabolizing fat again".
So let's recap those calories...
Carbohydrates and proteins have 4 calories per gram. Fat has 9 calories per gram. Alcohol has 7 calories per gram.
Remember you don't burn any calories from Fat if you have alcohol in your body, zip, zilch, zero, none!.
Drinking also dehydates you, raises cortisol levels (goodbye muscles), raises estrogen levels (hello hips), lowers inhibitions (pizza anyone?).
Combine that with the fact that alcohol promotes abdominal fat storage (of all places!) and it's really not worth it, not even on free day, not if you're serious about making a major transformation.
Yes you have heard that before & correct it is going to be repeated again.
