Wow, that is very generous @mozgrame
I will still have a go at getting onto it here mate, hopefully this weekend, but will keep your offer in mind; I'm that keen to get into the book and it's advice.
I realize it's not meant to be a "miracle-cure", just more an overhaul of your life-stuff. Like most things mate, you usually get back what you're prepared to give (or put in).
And if you're looking for a starting point with the EPL "do yourself a favour" and give Manchester United a look. (AND, remember I got in 1st there, ahead of all others, lol!)
It was a nice gesture wasnt it River!
There are many good articles out there but you can also Google Nutrition or Nutrionists and do a search under their site and find some remedies for general health and wellbeing. Check out Mens Health (and associated sites) as well and search from there.
However, exercise and diet play a big part in any wellbeing.
I am 6ft 3" and I weigh around 85kgs (in old terms), so those BIG footy jerseys wont fit me.
I dont drive (wife drives - I just drive her crazy with sport even though she supports Newcastle Knights) but walk to work each day and return and down the street when I go and return.
Gee, maybe we should start a Silvertails Wellbeing thread or folder.
Even Donny Singe might come on board with us.
I wonder if Rosemary Stanton (nutrionist) supports Manly.
Moderators might see some benefit in it!
Just read the article, HA HA HA!!!!!
Excellent on inviting "mozgrame" to support The Mighty Red Devils of Manchester United.
He (mozgrame) might read this (I'm still finding my way with blogs and multiple posts in one), but if he has English UK origins or family bases and comes from around Birmingham area, I can see that his family might have things to say in supporting either Aston Villa or Birmingham - different leagues/divisions of course.
Cheers - catch ya and GO MANLY.
It is a very nice gesture and offer for sure Pete.
Things like that happen regularly here mate (@Shoe1 for example sent me a spare Manly v Roosters flag not long ago). They were free initially, but he still took the time and paid modest postage to send it my way. One member even sent a flag to @globaleagle all the way to Canada.
You'll find @mozgrame very much like me: Speaks his mind (sometimes before thinking it through); unafraid to stand his ground, but also man enough to admit when wrong, or apologize if need be. (He's also as funny as hell and smart as a whip, just quietly!) *And YES. We need to convert him to Man Utd ASAP; before those other wretches get their tentacles around him here!*
Your idea on a Men's Health/Well-being Thread is actually a very good, and realistic idea. We have the General Discussions Forum for anything and everything we'd like to discuss. And as far as I know, I can't see a problem with it (being formally started) and really feel it could be worthwhile (especially once the Rugby League season's over).
Go have a look in there when you've some time to spare Pete (General Discussions). *Do you like Boxing for one? *Or belive in God(Fate or Destiny)? *Did Robin Williams "passing" affect you at all? *Or simply enjoy a diversion and heaps of photos from all over, in "Postcards from Home". You can even add pics to share from in and around Bathurst if you feel inclined. And so on.
Regarding "Health"...For a variety of reasons I won't go into openly just yet (may well in PM as we've discussed) I'm about 6 foot-tall with-boots-on, lol. But my weight has steadily increased this past 2 years (from approx. 78 to currently 103kgs) which is a lot; is unacceptable; and it is time to get things back-on-track in the right direction. *So U should now see how a 2XXL jersey was too tight for me (and from that blurry pic). At 85kilos yourself U might fit into a 2XXL, depending on your frame, or body-structure, as you are a tall bloke. And, some people are OK with tighter clothes too, I know. I'm not. I hate tight clothes (T's, shorts, jerseys or jeans and jackets etc.) It's all such an individual thing and ultimately best to "try before you buy" when possible. *As far as I know, there's none left of any size anyway now.
Have a good weekend (with a Manly win of course), Man Utd too.
I've already got my AFL team comfortably into the Grand Final after tonight (the Sydney Swans).
Your "serve". lol.
