Daily “Selfie” – This is the shirt I got from my family for my 30th birthday this summer.  I know that I am still young by a lot of standards, but I was very nervous about trying to be a competitive strength athlete at 30 years old.  I had lifted weights before (HS football, College football, etc.) but never consistently, and certainly never for competition. When I took up lifting to get in shape after my daughter was born (I was 29), I never thought I would be doing it this way.  I figured I would weight train to lose weight because I hate cardio.  I never, in a million years, would have thought that I would have my own training/diet blog, sell protein powder and other supplements, win two medals and one trophy in powerlifting meets, compete in a strongman contest, compete in a MAS Wrestling tournament, start a strength club and a MAS Wrestling team at my work, and become a certified personal trainer ( I am currently working on the program).  This has been one of the best decisions of my life.  I am healthier than I have been in a long time, I have goals to work towards, and I am having fun.  I just want to take this time to thank the person who has been by my side through my journey of becoming even fatter than I was (I blame her cooking being so good) and completely changing my life.  My wife has been a steady support system who let me take over our basement and turn it into a gym, who let me start business ventures in supplements that she didn’t really understand at the time, and who let me drop money into a “hobby” that turned into a new lifestyle.  I love you babe!!! (not sure how I got this whole story out of a picture of my t-shirt)2015-12-08-05.32.26.jpg.jpeg
