I have been attempting to live a vegetarian lifestyle since August 2019. I am continuing to do so and am feeling better without any cravings for a steak or burger. I have been trying alternatives to meat like Beyond Meat and have been ok. My family can not understand how I am able to be a vegetarian but for now and the time being it is working for me. I have been going to Lifetime Fitness in South Jordan(fabulous place by the way) and have had to tone down the intensity of the workouts due to that damn nemesis...injury.

I am not the only one who has been struggling with a death in the family this month and feeling effects of mental stress and anxiety. I attended my uncle’s funeral. It was good to catch up with family and friends and restrengthen family ties.

Then we all got hit with the passing of nine people as a result of a helicopter crash including NBA superstar Kobe Bryant. I was not instantly affected by his passing because I am not a Los Angeles Laker fan, however as I looked back at my life I realized that there were all theses Easter eggs of Kobe-isms and influence. My daughters fell in love with basketball and Kobe because their first ever NBA game was a Utah Jazz game when Kobe Bryant came visiting. This is a milestone and a start to building a great relationship with my daughters through basketball...thanks Kobe.
