SparkPoints: 36,608

Fitness Minutes: 3,248

My Goals:
I would like to lose a pound or two a week by following a more healthy lifestyle regarding both my diet and my physical routine.

My Program:
I work with a terrific Personal Trainer twice each week doing Cardiac Phase 3 rehab. She has me do both cardio and strength work. If you're in Birmingham and looking for help, let me know and I'll connect you with Andrea!!

I try hard to do 30 minutes of cardio on the other days of the week [but don't always make that happen, I'll admit].

Personal Information:
I'm Robbie Grier.

I grew up in Gastonia, NC. After college, I moved to Charlotte. Later I moved with work to Atlanta, South Florida, North Florida, New Orleans, Birmingham, AL and now Dallas, TX.

I had open heart surgery in May 2012. I have bounced back pretty good. I'm working on keeping a focus on my weight/nutrition along with increasing my physical activity level.

Other Information:
I love all types of music from Pop to Rock to Country and Western to Bluegrass to Opera to Classical to . . . [Well You Get The Idea]!!

Some of my favorite authors include: C. S. Lewis, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Henry David Thoreau, Sara Paretsky, Scott Turow, John Grisham, and Sue Grafton. My favorite set of books are the stories of James Herriot. I find his stories about his years as a country vet and the animals he treated (and their owners) to be fascinating.

My movie tastes are pretty varied. Iím a big James Bond fan (yeah I think Sean Connery was the best). However, when asked to name my favorite movie, I almost always say either Brian's Song (the story of Brian Piccolo's life and death from cancer - the original one with James Caan and Billy Dee Williams), What's Up Doc? (a hilarious Barbra Streisand/Ryan O'Neal romantic/comedy), or Braveheart [depending on my mood at the time of the question].

Hi Robbie, Just stopping in to tell you I like your song choices in the game. Love to see what you and BobHook come up with. Keeps me on my toes! See you at the game.

Hey realized you actually started this game!! Great idea!!!
And the ONLY James Bond, as far as I am concerned, is Sean Connery!
Remember the movie What's Up Doc too!!
