About Buff Blogger
WELCOME TO THE WONDERFUL WORLD OF BUFF BLOGGER
A compilation of fitness, nutrition, motivation and, most importantly, entertainment. I had spent several years in the blogosphere before I realized that my life’s true passion for fitness & a healthy way of life needed a home of its own. After seeing countless sites/blogs with the same old approach to fitness I decided it was time for something new and in 2009 Buffblogger.com was born.
WHO IS BUFF BLOGGER?
My journey into fitness/bodybuilding began back in 2001, the year I graduated High School. Coincidentally it was the same year I got my first gym membership (Lifetime Fitness). Before I dove head first into this new lifestyle I had previously struggled with finding my place in life. I struggled with obstacles like getting expelled from school, being arrested, and substance abuse. Finally, the day came where I had hit my rock bottom. I recognized that this life of drinking & drugs was destroying me. I still recall the moment when I decided to change my life forever. I was holed up in some sketchy hourly motel room after binging out for 2 days when I looked at myself in the mirror and said, “I am Ryan M and I am better than this”. That was it: the moment I decided I was going to take control of my life, be strong, and leave all the rest behind. The decision to make change in your life can often be the hardest one to make and even harder to follow through on. The friends and daily routines that I used to turn to for comfort all slowly faded away. Many friends resented my new attitude and ultimately disappeared. The goal I had set in my mind was now in control of my life and for the first time my friends, drugs, drinking, and partying were not. Everything starts to come together when you finally have a GOAL for your life; a plan that you know you will see through till the end. I believe it gives your body and mind the strength to carry on through anything. It’s the key to a meaningful, successful, and rewarding life.
My mission is to provide any and all information that I’ve learned over the 10+ years of my healthy way of life. I talk to people everyday who tell me they wish they were happier, more confident, or still struggle with obstacles in their lives. If any of the lessons I’ve learned or advice I can offer helps a single person for the better, then I couldn’t know any greater joy. I understand that wanting to change your life can often be scary and seem like an impossible task. However, if it was possible for me, then I know it is for you as well. No matter what stage you are at, I offer you my ear without judgement and in confidence. I don’t know you and I may never meet you, but I want you to know that I believe in you & I’m here for you.
