Let’s Get Started

Getting older never suited me.  At 30, people would think I was 25, at 35 they would say I looked 28.  However when I was 40, people started to say that I looked 40.  I decided to change a few things in my life.  Waking up in the morning with a sore back and getting winded in the park running after the kids was really bringing me down.

There is a ton of information on the web and hundreds of books on all three subjects. I am pretty sure I have visited or read almost all of them.  I found it difficult to locate something geared towards me, the 40 something guy who is a realist, who will not (or cannot) devote hours a day to get chiseled abs and who couldn’t bother with weighing chicken breasts before and after he boils them to figure out the true protein content of a breast.  I didn’t need the “if you put your mind to it you can do ANYTHING – If you didn’t break the marathon world record, it is only because you didn’t put your mind to it enough.”  I also found the “5 simple steps to a new you”, or the “How to hack your health” to frankly be a lot of bull.

Doing all of this, keeping the wife and kids happy, and trying not to waste too much time at work looking up health articles and becoming a runner is not easy despite what most TV shows have taught us.
