Here I am, embracing my late 40’s! I’m discovering self-confidence and a positive attitude about healthy aging. By learning to focus on improving my health and fitness, and not worrying so much about trying to look perfect and young has removed a tremendous burden, allowing me to simply enjoy life and all it has to offer.

Feel free to find me on Instagram where I post about my adventures and healthy eating:

Member Since: 9/14/2017

Fitness Minutes: 14,932

My Goals:
My goal is to age as healthfully and actively as I can, so that I can enjoy my life as long as possible.

My Program:
Active vacations and weekends
Limit processed foods
I eat a lot of fruits, vegetables, grains and nuts
Cardio funk (max effort) 2-3 times a week
Hike several miles a week
In cooler weather, trail running at least twice a week
Build in other exercises, such as doing squats or push ups while waiting for the coffee to brew, etc.

Personal Information:
I just celebrated 8 years with my wife, who is a very fit marathon runner and who is a constant inspiration to me in so many things. We have 2 whippets and a mixed-breed that we adore and our lives revolve around. My sister-in-law lives with us, as she's disabled from lupus, and we help take care of her, since she can't live independently. I am from California, spent 10 years in Minnesota and now reside in Austin, TX. I enjoy acrylic painting, photography, cooking, hiking and gardening and spending time with my wife and our dogs.

Other Information:
Living an alcohol-free life since 1/5/2019 and loving it!
