I’m a child of God, husband, father of 3, friend, mentor, certified personal trainer, and business owner. I have been blessed to be a blessing. Diabetes runs in my family and my wife's family has several health issues. Sometimes we just keep doing what we are doing because we just think that some things just will not happen to us. For as long as I can remember my father has been the closest thing I had to a real life super hero and when diabetes hit my dad and he lost his ability to perform I knew I was going to have to make some changes in my life. We were big time meat eaters. Fried meat made up 3/4 of the meal. Down here in Mississippi we would fry squirrel, raccoon, dear, apples, frog, you just about name the animal and we would fry it and smother it in gravy. Some of us inherited the bad habit of making sure food did not go to waste and that rule really applied to sweets. I remember sometimes eating half of a chocolate three layer cake in a few hours. Through research my wife now prepares a 1/4 meat if any for meals now. We have started raising a few chickens for eggs and have really started becoming more knowledgeable of where our foods come from and eating more for nutrition versus taste. As a family we now consume more raw veggies. I have been helping people with their health and fitness for the past few years. I wanted to step up my game so I started studying for the ISSA personal trainer certification. I have been just reaching out to others that appear to have similar interests in an attempt to share knowledge and stay up to date with changes in our community and the world of health and fitness.
