What started as a place to jot down some thoughts and connect with some people on my Facebook page has turned into a whirlwind of meetings and connecting with people all over the world. Interviews, messages, Skypes, and phone calls are all too surreal. I’m grateful, honored, humbled, and honestly, a little scared out of my mind. My plan was to toss my story out there and write a little about
This is a post I’d rather not write. I am venturing out on very thin ice and I am fully aware of it. Please don’t read parts of this post or you may leave with the wrong idea. It’s an all or nothing kind of post. I have been connecting with a few people from my Facebook page that have mentioned either their spouse or mine in a comment or private message. ….if only my wife would. … you’re so luck to have done this with your wife…. if my wife would support me then….. if my wife would just stop making. ….
Anyway, today’s post is about team work. Continue reading
A new drug will hit the market in June 2018 after FDA approval. It is touted as one of the most comprehensive and effective drug to be discovered in human history. Researchers say they have never seen such a powerful drug Continue reading
This week I had the privilege of meeting a world-renowned doctor and New York Times bestselling author Dr. Michael Greger. On the return trip home I spent a lot of time thinking about how my view and perspective of doctors had changed over the past couple years. Before I even start writing this post let me be very clear about something Continue reading
I have probably heard the phrase “lifestyle change ” a thousand times. I hate that phrase and if you ever hear it at the beginning of your journey (regardless of the destination) ignore it and run away. Here’s why: there’s a guy. ….we’ll call him Tom, he dropped out of school to work in a union factory for pretty decent money. The factory ended up closing down a few years after he started.

I suck at running and I’m the first to admit it. I sucked worse Saturday because my body was overworked as I had been focused on a long distance bike ride. I was under-trained for running but I had signed up for a half marathon expecting this. I knew I was going to struggle Continue reading
I genuinely try to never tell people what to do or how to live their lives. First, most people will go into a defensive mode and shut down. Second, most of the time it is none of my business how they live. And third, I realize that if I want to become a “change agent” (for anything, not just food and fitness) the most effective way is to lead by example. When people see something good and genuine in the way you live they will want what you have, it’s that simple, all you have to do is toss it out there and be real. If they are not willing to hop on your bus then they are just not ready for change or they are not looking. Hang in there because if you stay genuine and transparent they will come around someday.

A few days ago I was commenting on a Facebook post that someone posted in a group that I’m in. The person had seen my story and was saying how she couldn’t wait to see her own drastic changes that she had seen in my pictures.
Before I even get going I can tell you I am going to go full circle with this post and totally contradict myself. Here’s why. With any journey , if it is worth going on, it is scary. Sometimes you are alone but if it’s a journey, chances are you’ve never been there before. Mistakes are inevitable.
July 6, 2012 is a day that will forever be burnt into, not only my mind, but my entire being. I was beyond scared, this was not just your normal fear, I was in fear for my life.
The fear was real but it was entirely voluntary. I had been looking through some pictures from a picnic and I saw one of me that made me really take a second to reflect. This is the one.
I had reached a point where I was almost immobile and I could hardly get up from a chair much less fit in one. Continue reading
