CNN Fit Nation: Triathlon Challenge
Time to Take Control
I've had a interesting 18 months with alot of personal challenges, and during much of this time, I felt very out of control. I was waiting on other people, i was dealing with personal issues I didn't even know I had, and I'm kind of a control freak so that bothered me alot. I didnt like being out of control.
At some point during that process I realized that one of the only things that any of us can control in our lives is our bodies - what we put in them, and how we take care of them. No matter what's going on in our lives - if we're dealing with personal issues, if we're struggling at work, if we don't have a job, if our house is in disrepair - no matter what else is going on, you can always control what you put into your body and how you take care of it!
I was shocked! I shocked myself that for me being such a control freak, that I didnt take care of my body.
So, I need help. and I think you and I could be a good partnership. I think I would do a great job documenting my journey for your viewers on CNN and also on CNN.com, and I think you could provide me with the motivation and the education to take control of this part of my life where I've been so out of control.
So I hope you will consider me to be part of the 6-pack in 2012. It would be an honor and a privelege to join your team.
I will warn you -- you're going to have a bit of a challenge finding a bicycle helmet to fit my head, because it's enormous! You take that challenge, and I'll take your challenge to complete the triathlon in Malibu in September.
