You are either growing or perishing.

The challenge is to not become complacent with where I am in my life and continue to cultivate relationships and my career and other opportunities afforded to me.

For now, it’s safe to say, I am enjoying my new found freedom from academia.

Went for a run with some co-workers today…

A co-worker of mine decided to pick up running so, we went for a quick run today during our lunch break. An easy 1 mile around the block I said. We all remember how well that worked for me the last time I ran with a co-worker. Not too bad! 9:51 minute pace according to RunKeeper.

As it turns out, today is actually exactly one year since I broke my foot! The Jone’s Fracture I sustained was pretty catastrophic, but my leg is getting stronger every day.  A lot of the recovery is a confidence issue. I’m very self-conscious about the high-arch in my left foot, pes cavus, and how it makes me especially susceptible to certain injuries, but I certainly won’t let any of that that stop me from reaching my goals.

Article about my weight-loss in LynwoodPatch Latino: 200 Pounds Less and $10,000 Richer, Lynwood Man Can Finally ‘Live Life’

This morning, an article about my weight-loss journey and the prize I won in the Shaklee Cinch® Transformation Story Contest by Lynwood Patch Latino EditorStephanie Rivera.

Here is a small excerpt from 200 Pounds Less and $10,000 Richer, Lynwood Man Can Finally ‘Live Life’.

24-year-old Edgar Ortiz recently found himself the winner of a $10,000 prize for his story on shedding 200 pounds in two years.

Two years ago, Lynwood resident Edgar Ortiz would never have believed he would be hiking or running marathons today, let alone weigh 200 pounds less and score $10,000 because of it.

But it’s all true.

Having lived off junk food and fast food for most of his college life, then-400 pound Ortiz didn’t stop his unhealthy living style until an intervention from a friend in late 2009.
