Honored to be in included in @menshealthmag top 6 transformations... 🙏 and the weight has been off for 13 years.
I used to be on drugs, on an ego trip and on a mission to try to control how the world thought about me. Now I’m on a treadmill, hugging my kids, doing yoga, or eating a healthy meal. But whatever I am doing, I am present in it. And the only part of the world I’m trying to control is how much love I can give away to it.
There is only one way that I am aware of to be happy... to choose it, right now, for no good reason. And then to protect it with every thought and action.
She teaches me as much about living as I teach her... give yourself to the moment, learn and dance thru the days.
This moment is my life- the step mill and a two mile run is where I am... There were times when this moment was hitting the finish line of a 100 mile foot race. There were times when this moment was shaking in my boots before stepping into the ring for my first sparring match. There were times when I was on the operating table or in bankruptcy court, or navigating my first hour without a drink. The only thing that matters about now is if I am living in it or hiding from it. Am I creating the moment with my actions or trying to survive it? I choose to lead the way forward and never quit. #achillesrecovery #achilles #makeyourselfgreatagain
Daddy’s little girl... she’ll always make me work as hard as I can to be the best human possible.

In the words of my boys at @theghostinside “Life’s swinging hard but I’m swinging harder” I’m at the gym everyday, I’m cycling, I’m lifting weights and I am even running again... but that is not what fighting is to me. Fighting is never giving up hope, and never letting go of living an amazing life. #achillesrecovery #achilles #makeyourselfgreatagain #wearesuperman
Scars are proof that we survived some sort of pain or injury. But gratitude is proof that we can never be hurt.
I currently occupy 25% of all the books at my physical therapists office and 90% of the injuries... just sayin. 🤣🤣
