It May of last year that I began my journey of pursuing a balanced life. A lot has changed since then. My health has changed. My future life expectancy has changed. My physical appearance has changed. The way I feel about myself has changed.
I created this video for two reasons. First to motivate others to make a decision to change their future. To let people know that they can change their lives. The other reason I did this video was the remind myself just how far I've come myself and to remind myself of the important fact that it's never about having “enough time” to eat right and do my physical activity. Instead, it's always remembering that each moment that God has given me is a gift and I must consider my priorities when spending those moments.
Of course, I do want to point out that I'm quite embarrassed by this video. Something else is a little different about me. It is the first time in well over 15 years that I've actually shaved off my mustache. Stephanie and I had talked about this during a recent Family From The Heart episode. I decided to see if it was as bad as I remembered. It's worse! With my thinner face, my lips appear even bigger than I ever remember. I'm pretty sure I'll be letting my mustache grow back in over the next few days. Oh well, here's the video!
