This is me, and this is what I choose.

Do not Break and do not waiver,
Personal victory is yours to savor.
Do not back down from those iron plates
what I want hear is "add MORE weight".
Progress can only BEGIN after every LAST step
TRUE growth develops after that very last rep.
1 MORE REP - always press beyond your boundary
Muscle is the tool and your body is the foundry!

I am a 34 year old husband and father of 2 girls. I am looking forward to being active with them as they grow up. I want to be a part of everything they do and learn.

I was new to Sparkpeople and if not for my Android phone, I would not have discovered it. I am sure glad I did. SP is even more than what I was looking for. I was just looking for a calorie, carb, protein tracker. What I found was a community site that is totally focused on supporting each others goal.
It's a lot like Facebook, but with a purpose other than just trying to prove you have more friends than anyone else...lol

Mark - my bud! How ya doing? Thanks for sparking by. Doing good here. My ankle is on the mend - just had my second physical therapy session this morning. No jumping, running, or excessive stair climbing still. Doing pretty good overall. San Diego was wonderful - watching my Packers live and winning - priceless! :-)

Hey Mark,
Thanks for sparking by, bro. I am still training, just not sparking as much.
I hope your training is going well. I have been on 5/3/1 for the last 5 weeks and using the 'bodyweight' track and getting great results...
I have a hex bar on the way, and can't wait to start using it...
Hope you are too busy kicking ass to stop and take names!
Doug
