Happy New Year 2013 from Steve and Sylvia

Family vacation

As 2012 draws to a close, it’s been a wonderful year in Austin for me, Sylvia and our family. Shelly is doing well in her sophomore year at TCU. Caroline is doing well in her (also) sophomore year at Westlake High School. Our business finally picked up in 2012 to our busiest since 2008. And I, Steve lost 30 lbs! More on that below.

Thanks goes out to all of our friends, family, clients, customers, acquaintances and others. Without you, our lives would not be as wonderful as they are. We end 2012 with much gratitude.

Now for my shameless plug and request for support. No, it’s not about business or leads or referrals. Something much more important. It’s about health, fitness and curing cancer. Please read on …

I spent most of 2012 getting into better shape. I was becoming a fatty again, and as I approached age 50 in 2012, I wanted to get serious about my fitness and health. I started cold turkey in March 2012 getting up at 5AM (yes, 5AM!), 5 days a week, and going to the gym for morning workouts. I have continued that schedule ever since. Through exercise and better eating, I’ve lost 30 pounds and feel great as 2012 comes to an end.

But as 2013 begins, I feel like I hit a fitness plateau. The routine is getting old, and I feel myself slipping back to old habits. I want to push myself to another level. I need a new challenge for 2013.

I was not sure what that challenge would be, until New Years Eve, 2012. I’m going to run the LiveStrong half marathon in Austin this February!
