Do not Break and do not waiver, Personal victory is yours to savor. Do not back down from those iron plates what I want hear is "add MORE weight". Progress can only BEGIN after every LAST step TRUE growth develops after that very last rep. 1 MORE REP - always press beyond your boundary Muscle is the tool and your body is the foundry! It is MY choice to live healthy. It is MY choice to eat foods that are good for my body. It is MY choice to exercise. It is what I choose to do. It is who I choose to be. It is ME! I am a 41 year old husband and father of 3 girls. I am looking forward to being active with them as they grow up. I want to be a part of everything they do and learn. I was new to Sparkpeople and if not for my Android phone, I would not have discovered it. I am sure glad I did. SP is even more than what I was looking for. I was just looking for a calorie, carb, protein tracker. What I found was a community site that is totally focused on supporting each others goal. It's a lot like Facebook, but with a purpose other than just trying to prove you have more friends than anyone

    Mark - my bud! How ya doing? Thanks for sparking by. Doing good here. My ankle is on the mend - just had my second physical therapy session this morning. No jumping, running, or excessive stair climbing still. Doing pretty good overall. San Diego was wonderful - watching my Packers live and winning - priceless! :-)

    Hey Mark,
    Thanks for sparking by, bro. I am still training, just not sparking as much.
    I hope your training is going well. I have been on 5/3/1 for the last 5 weeks and using the 'bodyweight' track and getting great results...
    I have a hex bar on the way, and can't wait to start using it...
    Hope you are too busy kicking ass to stop and take names!

    Hey Moose! You know, I might have to must up those dormant football skills and knock you to the ground - should the two of us happen upon some Zombies! haha! I laughed really loud at work when I read your comment on my blog. "If zombies chase us - I'm tripping you! lol! Great - I think I might post that in Facebook! We're not evacuating - so, chances are I won't be over in your neck of the woods in MN. Although, I have never been to WI or MN before - and I really would like to visit that way. (I know, how can I be a cheesehead if I've never been to GB before... I need to remedy that - then head over to your state and perhaps we could meet up face to face. Slan agat! (Health to you!) Lee

    Hey Moose - it was nice to hear from you and you're right - that was truly a face of sheer terror! I laugh every time I look at the picture; or view the DVD. Thanks for checking on me. Overall, I'm doing pretty good. I have a 4.0 in my studies - and I've been enjoying the curriculum to date. Keep on keeping on... or as they say in Gaelige - Slan agat (Health to you) - Lee
