A Cup of Joe...

By Joe Gonzales

Well, Tuesday was the day.
What am I talking about?
Tuesday, Aug. 22nd, was one year to the day since I began working out and trying to become a healthier Joe Gonzales.
One year ago on that day, I had hit my breaking point.
I decided enough was enough. It was time for a change.
At the time, I weighed 262 lbs., and I wasn’t happy.
I had no energy, no confidence and most of all, I felt terrible.
I remember sitting at my desk and my jeans being so tight.
I felt miserable.
One morning, I knew it was time to work.
A voice in my head, and I know it was God, said to me, “Get up and get to work Joe!”
I did.
I went to Snap Fitness.
I still remember how I felt the first morning I ran on the treadmill. I did five minutes and thought I was going to die. It was horrible, but I kept pushing.
