1. WHAT DID LIFE LOOK LIKE BEFORE YOU FOCUSED ON CONSISTENCY ON NUTRITION AND FITNESS?
I couldn’t stand without support, bend to touch my feet, or get down on the ground. I needed assistance to get out of bed. I’ve been in 7 car accidents, hit by others. I’ve almost died 3 times. I’ve been through prolonged hospitalizations, surgeries and injuries. I have spinal stenosis, a fused/metal foot, 40% left of my L5 disc after surgery, 5 herniated discs, and malformed knees without cartilage. My life was pain and A LOT of Alleve.
2. What made you decide to make a change?
My parents, died in 2015 and 2016. I watched my Dad waste away in his lazy boy because it hurt too much for him to move. He had been an auto mechanic and spent a lot of time of on motorcycles and snowmobiles. He had a triple bypass and artificial heart valve. I didn’t want to end up like that. It hurts to move, but not moving has dire consequences.
