How Tall Am I?
Fun Fact: Google loves to update me about things that people search with my name in them. So, since you asked, I am 6'3" or 6'3.5" on a good day.
In high school, I was still about 6'3" 170 lbs (shown in picture). I was skinny and wanted to be stronger and bigger.
But I never put anything into action, and instead went backward. I gained several pounds by the time I had hit 12th grade in high school.
MY FITNESS JOURNEY
Small, Consistent Action
After seeing myself in the mirror I was somewhat disgusted and angry that I had let myself get pudgy and lazy. I made the conscious decision to act on my plans to become stronger and more fit.
Flash forward about 8 years and I competed in my first bodybuilding show at 225lbs (shown in picture).
Out of all the things that I learned along my journey, I can tell you that it is ALL about small, deliberate, consistent action every day.
It is impossible to make improvements overnight, but with a plan to be consistent and putting that plan into action anything is possible.
HOW MY LIFE CHANGED
I still attribute that point and time to multiple aspects of my life changing. I started to want more out of life, and I quit being lazy and making excuses. I still wasn't where I wanted to be, but this is how fitness has changed my life for the better.
