I went through a major life change when I had to endure back surgery. I gained 40 pounds during the recovery phase and decided I had to lose that weight. That situation ignited my passion for fitness. I developed a lot of knowledge about fitness and wanted to share that knowledge with others. This came to a boiling point when I got involved with a fitness group online. This got me involved in daily accountability blogging.
The first thing I noticed is how powerful social media is for helping a person get into great shape. The support network that can be formed is incredible and the people are so supportive. Now that I am applying what I’ve learned through that online support group I am seeing real results. I now have the opportunity to share what I’ve learned with other people.
On April 14, 2012 I took 3rd place in my first ever NPC bodybuilding show. I then placed 4th in the Venice Beach Memorial Day Classic 2012.
Like so many people, I have often failed at getting back into the shape I was when I stepped on stage. This journal site is to chronicle the things I do to get back into that shape and beyond. The goal is to be in the best shape of my entire life and that’s not a goal I plan to miss.
