How are all your resolutions going?  Are you sticking to them?  Have you been able to change those habits you're determined to break....or make.

Us humans are habitual creatures.  We generally do the same things at the same time each day.  If you're a bodybuilder then you'll definitely be a creature of habit eating and training the same time daily and probably eat the same foods everyday too.
Habits, good or bad, make you who you are. The key is controlling them. If you know how to change your habits, then even a small effort can create big changes.



Aahhhh nothing like a good old makeover to make one feel refreshed and have a new outlook on life, fitness and work. Since these three factors are so closely intertwined in my life ie most of my time is spent either thinking about what to put on Go Figure, gathering stories, pics and uploading on site or training Go Figurec clients. Go Figure is a big part of my life and alot of my time is spent on bringing you the full on site you see today.

The New Year is here!. The time of year when we ponder the past and evaluate our achievements (and perhaps failures) last year and when we vow to better ourselves this year. It is usually the time when we make resolutions for the year with the hope of achieving them.

 What's your resolution this year?

Maybe you want to lose weight, to live healthier, quit smoking, compete in that fun run you've always talked about or even give bodybuilding a go.



Its the festive season. Time for work functions, lunches, dinner invites, drinks for work or with friends.

With so much socialising on our agendas, we're definitely entering a potential disaster zone for our bodies which we've worked so hard to shape this year. On average, a person will increase their weight by two to five kilograms over the festive season. Drinking an extra glass of wine, eating handfuls of party nibbles and eliminating a daily walk will produce a surplus 500 calories of unused energy. Keep that up for two weeks and that's a one-kilogram weight gain, yikes!
