Health and Fitness

Since leaving the Army in 2012 and for a few years after, I remained fairly active and healthy. However rather quickly my health to a back seat. Life just complicated . I could bang on about all the excuses but in the end its on me and me alone.

So I have reach a point where I no longer want to be a fat mess and get back to being a healthier role model for my family and myself.

So this is my Fitness Journal.
