Daily Success 4/22/2013 – I was stuck in a rut, worrying about how life was passing me by

All my adult life, I’ve been consumed by my work. I neglected my family. Put my family on the back burner. I neglected my health. I didn’t sleep. Didn’t really eat much—although I managed to keep putting on weight. But when my father died on his 80th birthday, it made me realize that we can’t control the way we die.

But we can definitely control the way we live.
So one day, while I was stuck in a rut, worrying about how life was passing me by, I heard about the Ultimate Reset™ and made a promise right then that I’d change. After all, the Ultimate Reset seemed perfect. I knew I had to start eating better. And the Reset was something I could do with my wife. Plus it was only 21 days. Anybody can do 21 days.

When I started, I was hoping to lose 8 to 10 pounds. I ended up losing 14 and took 30 points off my total cholesterol. My wife lost 24 pounds and we gained something even more important cooking together. Doing the Reset really brought us closer together—shopping, talking in the kitchen with our aprons on while we prepared the fresh fruits and vegetables. Preparing the fresh fruits and vegetables, talking in the kitchen with our aprons. It was an eye-opener.

The Reset didn’t just help my marriage. I feel so much more alive now that I’ve learned how to eat healthy. I no longer let my business consume me. I have enough energy to accomplish in 8 hours what used to take 12. And now I realize that I lost my Dad because poor health choices took him too soon. I’ve committed to live the most healthy life possible so I can be around my family for as long as possible.

I’ve been given the most ultimate gift—the chance to reset my life before it’s too late. Thanks Beachbody.
