60 is the New Sexy. And 59 is Fine!

It’s time to get “Back on the Plan” If you know me at all, you’ve heard me say that over and over. That’s because 90 percent of the time I eat clean. There are a couple of times during the year when I go off the plan and eat what I call junk food. For me this means cookies and ice cream, pumpkin pie and cake. If I ate like this all the time I think I would be very unhappy. I don’t eat like this because I want to feel good and look good. I believe that as one gets older one can still look good. That’s why I intend to continue to exercise and eat well. I plan on looking good when I hit 60! It’s just 7 months away.

This first photo is from just before Christmas. I was eating clean and felt good!

Pre Christmas Weigh in

Pre Christmas weigh in. 140 lbs-9.5% body fat

The second photo was taken on January 2nd after I had my yearly holiday binge. I wanted to document my weight and body fat to help me stay on track and to motivate me to stay fit and healthy.

January 2nd Back on the Plan

January 2nd. Back on the Plan 149 lbs.-11.4% body fat

So here we go! Back on the plan! If you would like to learn more about how to change your habits and change your health and appearance, I encourage you to reach out to me or any personal trainer and invest in yourself. You will feel better and look better too. Fitness is a lifestyle.

Boot Camp Baby returns…

P1060075Ok Boot Campers, it’s time to rise and shine. We are starting up again on Sundays at noon. Our first day at Boot Camp is Sunday, May 7th. We will meet in Central Park on the West side (enter at 85th street) in the Arthur Ross Pinetum. For those who don’t know it, the Arthur Ross Pinetum is just West of The Great Lawn and just South of The Reservoir. That’s where the swings and pull up bars are located.

As always, bring water and a good attitude! We will run, jump and Tabata our way into Summer.

Each Boot Camp Baby session is $30. Purchase all 4 Sundays in May for $100.

I don’t exercise!




How old are you? You don’t exercise? Say that again! Have you been living in another country?

I am a 58 year old man, living in Manhattan. New York City. United States of America.

I do not follow politics, I’m not religious. I live alone and I like it. So what do I do?

I work out. I stretch and breathe and meditate regularly. I cook and eat healthy foods. I’m still learning the saxophone and guitar. I love to sing. I try to mind my own business. Basically I take care of the only person I am truly responsible for. Me. Selfish? I should hope so.

Did you say you don’t work out? What do you do?


I Live!

One thing “Time” always does,

Whatever “is” becomes what “was”

Remember the Thundering of last Thursday?

Today as my day begins I look back on the week.

So much has happened that I am reeling from the changes.

That’s why I try to enjoy life in each moment, remember to breathe, and live now!

I start today with a full heart and an empty mind. Anything is possible and everything is new.
