What does my team mean to me? I think it's amazing. We are so different. Some of us married, some of us no longer married, some never married. Some have kids in college, some in high school, elementary, new born, or no kids. We come from all over - Texas, California, Ohio, Indiana, Florida, Georgia and even right here in Tenneessee. Some run marathons, some are struggling to keep up (me!). That's the amazing part! We are so different but we are all in the same place - working together to be he . . . [View Full]
Team Orange Theory - I am up for a team walk if anyone else wants to get together to do a team walk. We may not all be able to walk at the same time so let’s find some days and times and see what we can do. WE ARE BETTER AS A TEAM! Working with a team makes things different because you know you are not alone. You have others to reach out to. We can also share our experiences with one another. We each may have tips and tricks to help one another through this journey. I wou . . . [View Full]
What a difference a week makes! A week ago I committed to a journey with a group of ladies that I work with at Longview Elementary. I have known most of these girls for quite a while but have never actually done or interacted much beyond "Hi!" in the hallways between classes. I also made a committment to Brent Brinkmeir of On The Brink Fitness.http://www.onthebrinkfitness.com/ Poor guy he had no idea what a trainwreck I was going to be! In a weeks time I have developed what I would consider . . . [View Full]
Wow! What a difference a week makes! We are eating healthier, and Jo Voros has been giving us some really good workouts. This is the second week of the Be Healthy Challenge and even though we have all experienced sore muscles and tired bodies, it's been easier because we have experienced it together, as a TEAM. I can't tell you how thrilled I am to be taking this journey with Team Longview! Knowing seven other ladies are there to encourage me and pull me through when the g . . . [View Full]
Week Two: An Opening Thought With all that is going on in the world this week we offer this: “If you write, fix pipes, grade papers, lay bricks or drive a taxi - do it with a sense of pride. And do it the best you know how. Be cognizant and sympathetic to the guy alongside, because he wants a place in the sun, too. And always...always look past his color, his creed, his religion and the shape of his ears. Look for the whole person. Judge him as the whole person.” ― Rod Serling . . . [View Full]
Biggest Change for me is tracking diet. WOW! How easy it is to see where wasted calories go. Heading to the Farmers Market this weekend to stock up on fresh fruits and veggies! Go Team College Grove!
Thanks for checking back in to see my blog! In this edition, I’ll tell you a bit more about myself, why I’m participating in the Be Healthy Challenge, and how week one went for me & my team. Who am I?! I’m a 34 year old father of (newborn!) twin boys, Hayes and Owen. My wife, Terrah, is on the 100% Fit Nashville Team, so we pass the boys between the two of us so we can work out with our teams. I’m currently a marketer with Mars PetCare in Franklin, and my career has taken me from N . . . [View Full]
A close friend invited me to lunch today. DunDun-DunDun... yes that is Jaws! Because mine know not how to order at a restaurant... ok I do but what fun is that... IT'S A RESTAURANT! the home of large portions of really over-the-top food. So not to make this a mini-series, we split a spinach salmon salad with strawberry vinaigrette dressing. It was delicious, satisfying and a winner for me as a "good choice" and with 2 glasses of H2O, my food diary is still in tact. Never would have done . . . [View Full]
Last night was the second week of workouts with the fabulous Jo Voros. I love being on this health and fitness journey with the other ladies on my team. I push myself harder than I would if I exercised alone, and I need the accountability that comes with having teammates. We are in this together, and I don't want to let my team down. I am struggling with the nutrition side of having a healthy lifestyle. Carbs are my gastrointestinal friend....they don't cause me distress. Meats, vegg . . . [View Full]
