My name is Greg and, as you can see from the information above, I need to make immediate changes in my diet and activity.  By my calculations, I need to lose 50 lbs., cut my cholesterol in half, and develop some serious work/play balance in my life.

This blog will be the account of how I accomplished these goals.  I will write as often as I can chronicling the changes my diet and activity as well as the results they bring.

I am not an overly athletic person nor am I a man possessing super-human self-discipline.  As of today (April 16, 2013), I am just a guy who works too much, stresses too much, eats too much junk food, drinks too much pop, and spends way too much time in an office chair.

It seems like a daunting task, but with the help of my friends and family, I will succeed.  I have conquered tough things in life before and this is sure to be a struggle, however it is a struggle that I endure for the sake of my wife, my children, my friends, and myself.  I never knew my maternal grandfather, because he died in his forties of heart disease.  I will not go out like that.  I will do whatever it takes to be present in the lives of as many future generations of my family as possible.

I invite you to follow my journey to health and balance.  I have no idea how long it will take, but you’re welcome to come along.  Perhaps you want to make some similar changes in your life.  Why not join me?  We’ll do it together.
