Unfortunately some of you may know I've been off work since before Christmas, due to "Company Restructuring". I've had a few months of not having to do much but job hunt, watch TV and spend some quality time with my son. I've also had time to look around the house at pictures of what I use to look like when Sherry and I were dating or first married. It's given me a lot of time to think, reflect on my life and really see what's important to me. I decided to make a huge change in my life. If I want to live a long and healthy life with my wife and kids, things need to change. Having better eating habits, lowering my stress level, and looking at what matters in my life. I'm not doing this just for me. My dad passed at a fairly young age, and his death could have been prevented if he just took better care of himself.. got regular check ups, ate healthier, actually went to the doctor if something wasn't right. For those of you who know my father, yes what happened to him was hereditary, but if he had just took those steps to keep an eye on "that thing that runs in the family", I'm sure he'd probably still be here today. I've not only made a vow to eat healthier, exercise, keep in better physical and mental shape, not only for myself, but my wife, kids and family. I don't want them to go through what I went through.. the heartache of losing a father at such a young age.
So, here are pictures from February 8th, 2011, day 1 of changing my life around with P90X. I'll attempt to keep updated posts, but for sure I'll give you 30, 60 and 90 day updates! Take the time to sit back and evaluate yourself as well. Is there something in your life you can change? Do you have people that count on you? You want to enjoy every last possible breath with the one you love and devoted your life to? I know I do, and he's the start of that new life!
