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]

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]

For years, I have said that my health matters. For years, I have led a lifestyle of rinsing down chocolate chips with straight Coca-Cola. Bread was my comfort food, and anything made with butter and baked in a 9x13 pan was my happy spot. Then one year, not too long ago, my Mom died. And a few years later my Dad followed. Without my parents in between me and the horizon, it loomed. It suddenly became clear that what I was saying mattered so much really wasn't what mat . . . [View Full]
