My wife and I both work corporate jobs that keep us glued to our desks for hours at a time. That combined with the craziness of living in the Bay Area and raising a family has made it pretty tough for us to devote a lot of time and energy toward our health.
In 2010, we returned from a month in India feeling like we'd eaten every road-side morsel and sweet-shop delicacy in the sub-continent. So, we did an intense cleansing diet and started to really change the way we ate. We enjoyed great results and healthy eating became a serious part of our lifestyle.
Of course, that wasn't enough, so I decided to see exactly how "in shape" I could get this 37-year-old body. Really push the limits! Give it one, good, all-out try so I would always be able to look back at pictures with my grandkids and say, "Yes, dearie, those are Grandpa's REAL abs...no Photoshopping! Wait, you've never heard of Photoshop?!"
In order to stay motivated, record my progress, entertain my friends and keep the creative juices flowing, I started this blog. I love to write...and I hope you enjoy reading my ponderings. I welcome your comments, questions and suggestions. It would be great to build a community around this little experiment of mine. So, thanks for participating and please keep coming back!
