A Spark to Keep Me Focused on Eating Healthy and Exercising

I applaud anyone who is looking to make themselves a better person.

Keep fit physically, mentally and spiritually!

Fitness Bio:
I grew up in Smithfield RI. I was always strong, but on the skinny side. I played league soccer, did track in Jr High (discus and shotput) and high school (pole vault). I also wrestled in high school and came in 3rd in the Freshman State Championships.
I enjoyed my opportunities to train with weights and machines in High School. My greatest workout was cutting down trees, splitting and selling firewood.
I am an Eagle Scout and always enjoyed hiking and being outdoors.
I have always loved sailing both for leisure and competitively.
I went to the Coast Guard Academy and hit the gym hard with my buddies there. My weight and size increased as I grew stronger.
After graduation I went to scuba school in Coronado and spent 5 weeks with the 1st Recon Marines. I was in the best shape of my life.
I did three tours aboard Coast Guard cutters (BASSWOOD in Guam, WESTWIND in Mobile, AL and NORTHWIND inWilmington NC). I kept up with my lifting, increased my running and played volleyball whenever I could.
I wound up in Washington DC at Coast Guard Headquarters. I continued in the gyms here both at work and at my apartment. I swam, played tennis and did aerobics as well as continued my sailing.
I dated a girl who loved biking, jogging, tennis and being outdoors.
We married and had 3 children. With them I have enjoyed helping them practice, football, baseball, basketball, soccer and lacrosse. I sailed for a while. I played tennis and biked when I could and continued to workout at work, gyms and home.

Hahaha! Well I was definitely disheartened several times throughout these past 3 months but between you and my partner I've had some consistent whips on me to keep pressing forward. I am so grateful to you. emoticon

None of them come without some sort of struggle and the important thing is to remember in the struggle why I'm in it in the first place. Thank you for your support, Bob. I really value our friendship. Hugs!
