He just got home from Bootcamp in April and then returned home from SOI training in June. He is attached to a reserve unit in Broken Arrow, OK - will be attending college and applying for the Officer Candidate Program very soon!
Glenn - is my mom's maiden name, but your right - it is not very common.
Thank you for the welcome. What a coincidence! My first name is pretty rare and so is my job. Where does your son work? Being how small the Marine Corps is there is a pretty good chance that I have been to the same places.

Welcome Glen. I just do a variety of exercises as often as I can. Somtimes in the gym, sometimes at home. Some Wii EA Sports Active. Biking, swimming, jogging and tennis are all in there as well. Maximizing on what they call "clean" food (unprocessed) Making sure my water intake is at least 64oz per day. I am not a purist. I do have my fun and vices, but I keep them at a minimum. Best of luck and Semper Fi.

Hey Glen - welcome to the Spark and the Bodybuilders Team (Getting Buff too)... my brother's name is Glenn, and my son is a Marine! Glad to meet you! Good look to you and your wife on meeting your goals.
I just wanted to intorduce myself and thank everyone who has already welcomed me to this site. My main objective for starting with Spark People is that my wife has just enrolled in Weight Watchers and I can support her in tracking her points as I am tracking my calories. Even the short time I have been on here has produced noticable motivation in my wife. I also joined because I finally got sick of not having a "beach body" even though I am a Marine and am in pretty good shape. I am in the mid 190's, but my total body fat is much higher than I want it to be. I look forward to changing my eating habits so that my workouts and diet can finally get on the same page. I am living proof that training cannot compensate for a crappy diet. I am currently into training using minimalist style programs using heavy weights for low reps and using cardio to trim the blubber. If there are others that use the same style workouts, let me know what modifications have made things work better for you. I am also looking to find a program that focuses more on the olympic lifts. Thanks again for the warm reception to the site and I hope to hear from you all in the near future.
