Does Greco Lean & Fit Work…

…I think I may have written about this before, but it’s certainly the number one thing that random people come to my main blog to find out.

Take a look at the photos and the interview on the before and after page if you’re in doubt.

NEWSFLASH: Of course Greco works.  No, wait.  Let me rephrase that.


I had an excellent trainer named Brad Johnston.  Don’t get me wrong.  If you’re fortunate enough to have this guy on your side, he drives a hard bargain, and is pretty stubborn for getting results.  Can’t say enough good things about him.  He gave me the tools to change my life.  How many times does a stranger come along and give you something of value like that?  Not often, I assure you.  Doesn’t matter if they’re getting paid to do it or not.  You take what they’re giving you, and you say, “Thank you!”.

I’ve been on hiatus from the gym for over a year…  Can you imagine what I look like now?  Okay, so I’m not as slender, or toned, but I still fit all my clothes I wore a year ago.  All of them.


Well, I not only worked my ass off at Greco, I learned how my body works.  How to eat.  How to get along without Brad.

I haven’t seen Brad, professionally or personally, in a year.  I never needed him to hold my hand, or pretend that I was doing better than I was.  I didn’t want him to do that anyway.  That’s not what I was paying him for.

It’s knowing how to get by when other people can’t be there for you.  That’s the difference.

That’s how Greco Lean & Fit works.


The Dirty Thirties…

I’m putting a novel together. I started it a long time ago. About the 30s decade. One chapter for every year. Loosely based on my life, and of everything I’ve experienced and absorbed since I turned 30. I think I will publish it for my 40th birthday. If you know me, you’ll probably find yourself in it. Or at least something about you in one of the characters.

Fun, eh?

10 years out…

I’ve been going through some of my old things in the past few days… I keep an awful lot of stuff but I manage to give or also throw away as many things. My intention for this next month or so is to shed even more stuff, become lighter on my journey so I can be even more free than I already am.

One of the things that I found was an old picture taken of me during my time on the Board of Governors for my College…

All I could say was … WOW. I look like shit. Severely overweight, tired, and really burnt out. Seriously… I look about 50 and I was only about 28. That was an eye opener. I don’t even know who she is.

How did I let myself get there? By not being happy.

I’m really a different person now… Literally and figuratively. Sometimes it’s great to keep reminders of the past and make a vow to never go back from where you came.

I will never look like that again. Thank fuck.
