Me and my life!!!

Lets get it out on the table from the start!

I had a Heart Attack at 40!!!

Thats right, on 3/21/2011 I was flown in Jacksonville's Life Flight with 100% blockage of my LAD.

A day I remember as the day my two most important successes could have lost their dad and my wife... her husband.

Clearly, I was "fixed" and luckily received little damage to my heart function, although I remain the only 41 y/o with a Stent. Not something to be proud ...

I had a Heart Attack at 40!!!

Thats right, on 3/21/2011 I was flown in Jacksonville's Life Flight with 100% blockage of my LAD.

A day I remember as the day my two most important successes could have lost their dad and my wife... her husband.

Clearly, I was "fixed" and luckily received little damage to my heart function, although I remain the only 41 y/o with a Stent. Not something to be proud of... But if telling other people about my life experiences can help others, I'm proud to do it.

So, even after a life changing event such as that, I have gone from eating a perfectly balanced diet and a regimented exercise program with "Clearly" no effort to do so, to gaining almost all the weight I lost, back. Again, with little to no effort.

It often surprises me how I can lose focus after such a life changing event, and that is something I consider daily.

And yet, it's taken another "scare" to get me back here... I'm clearly the most hard headed person I know!

My goals are simple...
1) Enjoy my life
2) Live my life
(I used to have a very definitive understanding of what the above two meant... not so much anymore. Still working on it)

3) Be Healthy - Isn't it really about choices and the journey?

The point is this...
Each day, I will make progress toward being a healthier individual by making choices that I can own.

My Blog will be my notebook of my thoughts... No guarantees they will always be positive or supportive, it's just my notes. I hope, if you read them, you will keep it in perspective and comment accordingly.

Peace -
Nick

Thank you for your touching comment in my blog re: my father. Seeing him slowly fade before our eyes was difficult as he fought so hard to live. Although we miss him dearly we realize he is in a much better place.

You're correctly in saying if only they could have been with us one more day. What a wonderful tribute to your father to have your daughter carry a part of his name.

My belief is those that have past are still with us, we just can't see them.

Have a wonderful day!

Hugs,
Keke

Hi....we all struggle from time to time, but if you can think of positive words to put in place of the negative, I believe you can, but you have to really want to, not only for you, but for your family as well.
