Lockdown Lifestyle 2.0: Rethink, Refocus, Restart

What’s good everyone! Welcome to the blog for the first time readers, long time followers or casual readers

It’s been a little while since I last posted and that last post was a deep one! A few thoughts on my journey and the way I was feeling at the time, which was not like myself!

The lockdowns and all the other rubbish going on at present was getting to me but we move past that

Since then I’ve been thinking and I’ve realised maybe my mindset at the time was due to overthinking

I’ve always felt like online and on social media you have to have this brand or image! Your Instagram has to be set out in a certain way, your tweets need to get 1000s of impressions, your blog post needs to be viewed by the masses

But that’s where I have been going wrong! I don’t blog for recognition, I blog because I enjoy it and want to put my journey down into words so that I can look back on how I have progressed!

The same can be said with instagram and Twitter it’s just a journal really of my life! If people want to read it great, if not then thats great too!

If my posts inspire one person in a million then I’m happy, and if not I’m sure i will never know that either

So it’s time to get back to things and really start kicking on with 2021, it’s time to forget the lockdown and looking at it as a negative but to do as I did in lockdown 1 and look at things positively as that’s who I am!

I’ve decided it’s time to get back into some of the things I love to do, one in an attempt to stop the boredom of lockdown and 2 just because it’s what I like to do

Firstly, the journey I have been on in the past year is all about losing weight & it’s time to get back to that! We will hit our goal!

I currently weigh in around 216 – 220lb and it’s time to push to hit 190lb by the summer time

The goal is set! And I’ll be posting more weekly updates with all the details and ins and outs, as well as looking to add in some menu ideas and what I have been eating to change things up

If your reading the blog let me know what content and information around my journey you would like to know or have a blog post on

Next I’ll be back on Twitch streaming some rather bad gameplay no doubt on Warzone as well as occasional other game depending on how I feel!

It’s gonna be direct from the Xbox app which means there won’t be a face cam to start with until I can get a webcam/ Kinect sorted!

If you want to check that out at any point I’ll be live most evenings around 8pm (UK time) so feel free to pop by and say hello! Or if your at your computer it’s always appreciated if you just leave a tab open ♥️

Catch me at http://www.twitch.tv/Drage162

I am looking to upgrade the stream ASAP and I’ll be investing in a new MacBook Pro!

The one I’m looking at more specifically is this …. https://www.hoxtonmacs.co.uk/products/macbook-pro-15-inch-core-i7-2-9ghz-pro-560-4gb-space-grey-mid-2017?variant=8316067283039&currency=GBP&utm_medium=product_sync&utm_source=google&utm_content=sag_organic&utm_campaign=sag_organic&gclid=CjwKCAiA9vOABhBfEiwATCi7GL7JQc8QPZ757s6kNhy0NT-s3_1RihddHnaEOTbYfBrEwC1DsM1iGBoCTZgQAvD_BwE

• Model – MacBook Pro

• Release Year – 2017

• Screen Size – 15″

• CPU – 2.9GHz i7

• CPU Cores – Quad

• GPU – Radeon Pro 560 4GB

• RAM – 16GB

• SSD – 500GB

• Colour – Space Grey

I’ll be using this for 3 things…

1. To stream to twitch via the Xbox and Streamlabs with a facecam and all the added alerts etc to make it a whole better experience for everyone

2. It’s time to get back into music and more specifically music production

3. Continue to write more blogs

We’ve spoken about twitch and streaming

Let’s talk about number 2 on the list! Not many will know this but a good few years ago I was very much into music production, back when I had my first MacBook before parting ways

You can find a selection of my music here – https://youtu.be/dLFt-6f7GWU one of my favourite tracks featuring Free Samuda

Check it out and let me know what you think! Anyway through music I met some amazing people and got to make some great music and now it’s time to fall in love with music again I’ll be getting back onto Logic Pro & now that it’s possible I’ll also be getting FL studio and we will be doing some streams around this as well as me just doing music in my spare time

Finally number 3! More blogging! I love putting my life into blogs I’ve never been one to care about sharing what is happening in my life as you can tell from the weight loss blogs and even the money / debt blogs and I’ll be doing a whole lot more of these going over even more details and the blog will get better and better

My current blog set up is I write these in notes on my phone then copy and paste to the WordPress app which gives very limited functions and I want to add a whole lot more pictures, videos, graphics the whole works

I also feel I’m very unmotivated at times to write posts for the blog due to the process and would much prefer to type via a keyboard direct to the page

Though I will be looking to do a lot more posts going forward around everything around my life!

More weight loss blogs, more money blogs, more in depths chats

It’s time to really put what I’m saying into practise and show that I mean business this year! Getting debt free, getting fit, getting back into music & making the current negative situation in life a positive

I hope that you’ll all be here for the journey, follow me through it share your experiences with me throughout the year and let’s have an amazing 2021 together

Stay safe, stay positive, and let’s keep moving ♥️
