Stunning Sunday morning run up to Deerfield Beach. If this is my last run in Florida, then it couldn’t have been more perfect. Amazing weather, beautiful blue skies and such a chilled, relaxed atmosphere down on the beach. I’m loving Florida, missing my family and friends but making the most of the time to myself. I will come back stronger, well rested and hopefully a bit more tanned! #running #runflorida #florida #floridarunner #ukrunner #ukrunchat #ukrunners #strava #stravarun #loverunning #deerfieldbeach #pompanobeach #fortlauderdale #southflorida #floridasun #sunnyday #gayman #sunshine #beach #gayuk #beachlife #healthybodyhealthymind #gay #proactivementalhealth #mentalhealthwarrior #runner #runningcommunity #runtoinspire #britabroad #running #runningmotivation at Deerfield Beach, Florida

Late night Ice Disco at the Panthers IceDen... ⛸❄️ I quite often talk about trying something new.. and this definitely fits that category. It’s surprisingly hard work throwing yourself around the ice but so much fun. I may have been shown up by some kids 1/3 of my age... but we had a good laugh! #trysomethingnew #sport #newsports #iceskating #skating #icerink #panthers #florida #floridapanthers #instalive #exercise #exercisemotivation #bigkid #gayman #gaysports #southflorida #ice #gayuk #britabroad #disco #icedisco #mentalhealthwarrior #goodtimes #fun #floridapanthers #letsgo #gay #healthybodyhealthymind #proactivementalhealth #sports Follow Me If You're True Fan! ->@florida_panthers_bigfan_fc Thankyou So Much! , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Rest and Relaxation is important too!! 💤 Today has been an actual rest day! ... no running, no gym. Just me. . . Very much looking forward to a bit of Ice Skating later on though and then on to Orlando next week for some fun and excitement at Universal Studios.. Such a big kid at heart really! 🤓 🎢 . . . #florida #pompanobeach #pompano #fortlauderdale #southflorida #orlando #universalstudios #islandsofadventure #volcanobay #seaworld #gayman #gayuk #britabroad #rest #restday #relax #relaxation #mindfulness #wellbeing #proactivementalhealth #mentalhealth #mentalhealthwarrior #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthmatters #floridasun #holiday #chill #chilltime #runningcommunity #runflorida at Overlook Pointe Luxury Apartments

Wet Morning Run in the “Sunshine State” ☔️ 🏃🏻‍♂️ 🇺🇸 They call Florida the Sunshine State here in the US... but when it does rain here - it RAINS!!! The warm climate actually made it very enjoyable! Feeling good, refreshed and much better for getting out. Never one to let a bit of rain (or lightning) stop me! #run #strava #running #runnersofinstagram #stravarun #runningcommunity #florida #floridarunner #runflorida #pompanobeach #gayuk #lighthousepoint #fortlauderdale #runningintherain #stormrunner #lovetheoutdoors #sunshine state #ukrunner #ukrunchat #ukrunning #britabroad #gayuk #proactivementalhealth #mentalhealthwarrior #gay #bournemouthblogger #fitnessblogger #blogger #morningmotivation #runtoinspire at Lighthouse Point, Florida

We may now be in February... but living an active and healthy lifestyle is a choice I make to improve my fitness, to look after my mental health, to increase my energy levels, to build physical strength, to run faster, to let go of negative emotions, to be more sociable, to feel good, to inspire others and to have fun! That’s why I am taking #REDJanuary in to February and beyond... #REDer #REDers #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #wellbeing #fitness #fit #running #runner #swimming #swimmer #exercise #exercisemotivation #motivation #motivationmonday #inspire #beattheblues #proactivementalhealth #healthylifestyle #healthyliving #healthymind #runningcommunity #runnersofinstagram #ukrunners #gym #gymmotivation #dorsetmind #bournemouth #bournemouthbloggers

#morningworkout 💚 Still stuck on UK time so started the day in a really positive way by hitting the gym. Benefits of waking up at 5am mean that I had the place to myself. Good all-body workout, avacaco on toast for breakfast and feeling great!

Today I am setting off on a mini adventure... I could easily write a very long post about how I came to this point and why I’m choosing to do it. But to put it simply, I’m doing this for me. That may sound selfish, and at times I feel it. But I’m trying to put myself first. It doesn’t come easy to me to say that, let alone do it... but I’m going to embrace it and enjoy it. This is a quote from one of my favourite ever films and I can’t think of a more fitting quote... #adventure #adventureisoutthere #proactivementalhealth #selfcare #blogger #mentalhealthblogger #mentalhealthblog #mentalhealthwarrior #healthandhappiness #holiday #vacation #quotestoliveby #quotes #quoteoftheday #wellbeing #mind #mentalhealthadvocate #florida #miami #pixar #disney #up #bournemouth #bournemouthblogger #blog #healthymind #lifebalance #disneyquotes #pixarquotes #pixarup at Florida

Morning #SPIN class. Starting the day with a blast of energy by doing my first spin class for a couple of years. Forgot how hard you have to push yourself and feeling great for it! The puddle I left on the floor at the end was evidence of how hard I had to work for it. Start the day is a positive way by doing some #exercise. I guarantee you will feel amazing for it! #proACTIVEmentalhealth 💚 #goodmorning #morningworkout #spinning #spinning #cycling #gymworkout #gym #gymselfie #gayman #gayuk #exercisemotivation #morningmotivation #healthylifestyle #healthyliving #healthymind #health #pushyourself #pushyourlimits #mentalhealth #gymmotivation #trysomethingnew #gay #selfie #sweat #bournemouth #bournemouthblogger at Village Gym

#parkrun 🌳 - With #poole parkrun being cancelled due to the icy weather, I went and joined the run in Upton Country Park in Poole, #Dorset. A beautiful morning, lots of #runners out in force and a great course, support and amazing volunteers as always. Took it easy with the conditions but fairly happy with the time too. Have a great weekend 💚 #loveparkrun #parkrunuk #loveparkrun🌳 #runner #ukrunners #ukrunchat #runnersofinstagram #runningcommunity #runningmotivation #winterrunning #goodmorning #weekend #weekendrun #saturdaymorning #saturday #weekendtime #loverunning #strava #runningtherapy #proACTIVEmentalhealth #healthymind #healthybodyhealthymind #morningrun #stravarun #bournemouth #bournemouthblogger at Upton Country Park

#ThankYou I know people often say with social media “don’t read the comments”.. but I just have to say how blown away I am by the amount of people that have engaged with the things I have been sharing over my social media channels. I have had so many likes, comments, private messages from people supporting me.. some that know me personally, others that do not but can relate to my experiences. I really do appreciate it and will continue to keep going. I’m not a person that would ever let something like this define me as a person. I am so many things outside of this.. I am a father, a friend, a son, a brother, a working man... (among many other things!) Illnesses do not (and should not) define you, so please do not think otherwise. But if I can share some of my experiences, lessons learned and inspire someone to put on a pair of trainers or talk more openly about taboo subjects then I have set out what I wanted to achieve with my pages. Thank you so much, Andy 💚 www.instagram.com/afitminduk www.facebook.com/afitminduk www.twitter.com/afitmind #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthwarrior #mentalhealthwarriors #blogger #bournemouth #dorset #bournemouthblogger #gayman #gayuk #fitness #motivation #inspiration #appreciationpost #gay #fitnessblogger #fitnessblog #thankful #wellbeing #selfcare #selfreflection #healthybodyhealthymind #proACTIVEmentalhealth #healthymind #mentalhealthstigma #healthylifestyle #lifebalance #taboo #runtoinspire at Bournemouth

#REDJanuary 2019 - Well... that was one hell of a month! I set out trying to push myself to stretch outside of my comfort zone... vary the exercise I do on a daily basis, meet new people and do my best to motivate others to live a more active lifestyle whilst promoting the benefits it can have on your mental wellbeing. I have shared a lot of personal experiences that have been incredibly tough on both myself and my close support network.. and that has not been an easy thing to do. But I’m so glad I have. I’ve met some truly amazing people on the way and feel like I’m only just starting my @afitminduk journey. January was all about painting it RED... and I look forward to continuing it forward in to the rest of 2019 and beyond and am thrilled that the walks we have been with Dorset Mind will be continuing throughout the year, which from the get-go was something I was very passionate about! 2019 has started in a very positive way, and I look forward to working on and progressing myself to health and happiness throughout the rest of year ♥️ 🏃🏻‍♂️ #redjanuary2019 #REDers #mentalhealth #beattheblues #wellbeing #exercisemotivation #appreciationpost #gayman #gayuk #fit #fitnessmotivation #fitness #exercise #healthybodyhealthymind #healthymind #proactivementalhealth #selfcare #mentalhealthwarrior #mentalhealthwarriors #running #swimming #runningcommunity #ukrunners #ukrunchat #gay #bournemouth #bournemouthblogger #dorset #blogger at Bournemouth

#FitnessGoals #BodyImage I have a different approach to some people when it comes to training and what I want to get out of it. For some people, it’s all about their physical appearance and how you look to others. I understand this - it’s nice to feel good about yourself because others show an interest. It’s built in to our human nature. However my approach is always very different.. I train because of how I want to FEEL... my body is my tool to do all the things I enjoy in life. There is no better feeling than being able to wake up in the morning and know that I am able to go for a run... a swim... go for a nice long walk... play a game of badminton... take my daughter for a bike ride. I can do all of these things and I am so fortunate I can live a healthy and happy life. I do not take that for granted.. there are so many people out there who simply cannot do all of those things. I work hard so that I am able to live and enjoy that life. I will never let a particular training plan stop me from living the life I want to live. I may not have a “perfect body” but I’m happy and confident with the one I have and work on for myself. I’d like to leave this with is a couple of questions to ask yourself.. Why do you train? Who do you train for? 🤔 💭 If the answer isn’t for yourself then I would question why that is? Love yourself, live the life you want and enjoy every second. 💚 #proACTIVEmentalhealth #bournemouth #blogger #blog #bournemouthblogger #fitness #fitnessgoals #exercise #exercisemotivation #motivation #gayman #gay #gayuk #foodforthought #selfreflection #gym #gymworkout #workoutroutine #mentalhealth #positivebodyimage #loveyourself #selfcare #enjoyeverymoment #running #swimming #badminton #lovetheoutdoors #walking #selflove at Bournemouth

#REDJanuary is coming to an end... But that doesn’t mean the constant balancing act of exercise and necessary rest will not continue. Both exercise and rest are essential to maintain “A Fit Mind”. Like all things in life, everything is good in moderation. It’s one big balancing act, but living an active and healthy life is something that I am so passionate about because I have learned from experience that I feel the benefits of doing so and have also lived with the consequences of what not doing so can also have. ⚖️ This month I will be talking more about the importance of taking accountability of your OWN mental health and how having a proactive approach could make all the difference. I am no medical professional/expert, but I hope that by sharing my own experiences it will at least challenge others to take a moment to take a step back and challenge their own thinking and approach. #proactivementalhealth 💚 #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #wellbeing #beattheblues #REDer #redjanuary2019 #running #swimming #runningcommunity #ukrunners #balance #active #activeeveryday #mind #healthymind #healthybodyhealthymind #ukrunchat #exercise #exercisemotivation #runninginspiration #loverunning #loveswimming #workout #selfcare #bournemouth #bournemouthblogger #dorset at Bournemouth

Sometimes your body will tell you to #slowdown ... make sure you listen to it! My post on N.E.A.D is coming soon where I talk about how I failed to listen to what my body was telling me - so it stopped me! The mind is a very complex and powerful thing. Don’t underestimate the importance of looking after it! #proactivementalhealth 💚 #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthwarrior #slowdown #rest #listentoyourbody #restdays #mind #mindfulness #selfcare #quotes #quotestoliveby #relatable #relateablequotes #anxiety #stress #lookafteryourself #bournemouth #dorset #bournemouthblogger #mentalhealthblogger #wellbeing #blog #blogger #nead #fnd #mentalhealthquotes at Bournemouth

Looking for a good book to read grab yourself a copy of Red Flag! By Author Soneakqua J. White. This book helps you break down real-life examples of manipulation and abuse that people fall prey to. Then it goes even deeper into the triggers that can be experienced after the trauma has taken place. Most importantly, it gives you options of how to recognize, avoid and/or deal with the circumstances. https://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/red-flag-soneakqua-j-white/1128982002?ean=9781732209435 #author #authorsofinstagram #proactivementalhealth #bookrecommendations #redflag #lessonlearned #manipulation #lifechanging #thoughtprovoking

A Time to Heal is temporarily out of print. Why? Because when I contacted my publisher to find out why I wasn’t receiving my royalties they told me “when it comes to how I keep my books and your royalties my office hours are from...”😂🤦🏾‍♀️Stay tuned for the relaunch! It will be available again shortly under new management. #authorsofinstagram #proactivementalhealth #writersofinstagram #writingcommunity

There’s nothing like having someone to talk to who will not judge or tell your secrets. Hopefully, you have a friend who can be that for you. If not, there’s always therapy. But, there will be those times when you cannot reach either of them. When that happens you can reach for your journal! Writing out your thoughts and feelings can be a useful tool to ease symptoms of stress, tension, anxiety and depression. It can also aid in helping with effective communication with your therapist, friends and family. However, if you’re unsure of what to say or how to begin, journaling can be difficult. So, here’s your journal helpmate! This book includes 200 prompts to choose from. Some days will be easier than others for you to get what’s in your head onto your paper. On those days, just jump right in and start writing. In those moments where you get stuck, just crack open your book and pick-a-prompt! This is in no way a replacement for talking things out, but it is an excellent positive coping mechanism to adopt. If reading is fundamental then Writing is Life! Available on Amazon! #author #proactivementalhealth #bookrecommendations #authorsofinstagram #writingprompts #writingislife #writingistherapy #writingismyfreedom #selfcare #thoughtprovoking #grabacopy
