2013 was the year of breaking down walls and adjustments. Because of a job where am constantly on feet and moving round, I was able to flush 75 pounds down the toilet- great start, but now the real work begins!
2014 is back to basics. Drink my water, eat more balanced meals, add non job related cardio & strength. I need to balance a schedule that changes and the rest of my life. Taking on things like the 5% community challenge and other teams will keep me motivated along with monthly ones like the Squat challenge starting Jan. 1. Also will be doing Rockin Body.
This will be a FABULOUS year for me.. Can't wait!

I have made excuses for thing all my life. I have no one to blame but myself for being in this state of unhealthiness. Although I went thru some really hard times in my life, I am the one who chose to eat the fast food and not exersize like I should. I allowed negativity to seep into my very core.
The simple truth is that sh*t happens everyday. I can chose to let it define me or I can chose to fight thru it and live my life. I chose to smile at the world and LIVE because


I want to lose 2 Bloodhounds, but will be happy with an average adult man.

    p.s. according to your list I have lost a small bale of hay. I wonder what it would be like to carry one of them now as an adult. I remember throwing them around as a kid! You could also say I've lost two 2 year olds.. now those I would struggle to throw around D:
