My name is Kevin. My life changed when I realized that healthy living is truly a lifelong journey, mainly won by having a well-balanced diet and enjoying adequate exercise. By experimenting in the kitchen and openly sharing my meals, I learned that healthy eating is hardly boring and that by making a few adjustments, I could design a diet that could help me achieve my personal fitness goals. Our bodies are built in the kitchen and sculpted in the gym.

Learn to love your reflection, and that love will grow as you gain momentum.  Let’s go!

Devotional Snippet, Chapter 4:

You don’t have to be sixty or eighty years old to find yourself stuck in the quagmire of “should haves, could haves, would haves,” and to believe that it’s too late to follow your heart. As a 31-year-old single mom on welfare, J. K. Rowling must have surely had huge doubts as to whether she’d ever have a shot at being published. Harrison Ford was pounding nails as a carpenter till in his 30s. What was going through his head as the clock ticked? McDonald’s founder Ray Kroc sold paper cups and milkshake mixers till he was 52. Arianna Huffington started the Huffington Post at the age of 54. It doesn’t matter what your age is. You can be twenty and yet feel “too old” because you’re allowing other people to control you and determine your future. It’s a certain recipe for an unfulfilled and frustrated life. Whatever your age, shake off the regrets of yesterday and yesteryear and start with a new vision of who you can become. That’s actually good advice for every day!
