Ever wonder what ten years of litigation, indictment, building a new company from the ground up, sentencing and preparing for prison will do to you? well, i woke up heading to prison after a decade of incredible stress, incredibly unhealthy and extremely overweight.
The combination of bad eating habits, stress, no sleep, no exercise had really taken its toll on me.
10 1/2 months after arriving here, I have achieved a major milestone. I’ve lost 100 pounds. In addition to a dramatic loss of weight, I have significantly improved my resting heart rate (now in the low 60’s) and my blood pressure (most recently 117/77) I’m excited to have my cholesterol tested when I get home.
While I still tend to work a lot while here, often until 4am, I have been able to get a lot more sleep (did I mention how wonderful naps are)
My knee injury as prevented me from doing a lot of exercises and activities, i am able to use the medicine balls, stationary bike and pull up bars. I’m working out 5 to 6 days a week. I’ve also improved my diet quite a bit, often consuming less than 2000 calories a day and cutting out a lot of wheat and sugar.
My ultimate goal is to leave here 130 pounds lighter than when i arrived, and now that the stress of the civil and criminal cases is over, i can move on with my life and continue my new healthier lifestyle.
