In January 2010, at the age of 34, I began taking responsibility for my health and well being. My weight had steadily increased since I was in my early 20's and consequently my physical fitness level was at the lowest of my life. On 8/28/2009 I smoked my last cigarette, but gained almost 20 lbs in the process of quitting.

A few days into the new year I started walking around my neighborhood and worked up to a 2 mile walk. In mid February I started doing cardio in the gym, and in May I found and my journey went into high gear. By my Birthday in August i had lost 40 lbs and ran my first 5k on my birthday to celebrate.

My journey continues as I get more involved in strength training and expand my new found love for running. My initial dietary changes turned into habits and have grown into lifestyle behaviors over the year. I am a student of this healthy living game and as I learn more, my journey continues.

    Hey Bud - good to hear from you. Lady Gaga is uniquely herself in the Universe. As an artist, she is so much larger than life. I do not agree necessarily with all she represents; but I cannot deny her 'diva glammin-self' as a superstar. I listen to all kinds of music; but you probably won't find me at a Lizza Minelli concert - reppin the non-gay community. :-) Trust you're well man -

    Thanks for the Christmas ideas on my blog.
    I still don't know exactly what I'll ask for yet, but I now have a list of things that I know I want to get -either for Christmas or whatever.

    I'm probably wavering back and forth between the watch and Zumba DVDs.
    A lot of it depends on the budget after we buy for the kids.
