Empowering you to take action.

I want to EMPOWER you to take action.

My mission is to help empower and support you along your journey. I do this by using the experiences I have learned from 14 years in the healthcare industry and from my own personal journey where I went from 360 pounds to Marathoner. Here are some of the ways I can help empower you along your journey: I ask you to take ownership of where you are and where you want to be. I want to educate you in ways on how you can win your battle.

Do you have a question or a comment? Send me an email.

You must evaluate yourself to win.

The first way to overcome a plateau is first realize
you are in one.

You need to do an evaluation of yourself at least every three months to see your progress towards your goals.

If you haven’t made progress in the last three months you need to change it up.

You can win, be the change you need starting now.

My goals to achieve in the next 170 days.

In 170 days from now I will be taking part in my first Spartan Race. I recently read Joe De Sena’s book Spartan Up!: A Take-No-Prisoners Guide to Overcoming Obstacles and Achieving Peak Performance in Life. After completing the book I instantly went to spartan.com and signed up for the race.

I recently crossed the five year mark of starting my journey. Every year of my journey I tried to push myself to new levels. To date the hardest thing I have ever accomplished was my first marathon and that was in 2012.

If I can be honest, after completing the marathon I was burned out. I started to lose focus and old habits started to creep back into the picture. I still had progress to make, but I became stagnant.

But that season has come to an end. The fire is reignited and I am ready to fight.

Here are my goals to achieve by March 7th 2015, the date of Spartan Sprint Race Atlanta:

  1. Lose 57 Pounds
  2. Cycle 75 miles.
  3. Be able to complete 10 unassisted pull-ups.
  4. Run a 5K in under 35 minutes.
  5. Complete my Spartan Race.

So here is to the next 170 days, it is time to do work!
