Living the Dream

Getting Ready For The Season

   Hey all, hope this day finds you in good health and attitude. It's been a while since I posted, so I wanted to let you know what I've been doing. I finally have my BP in control after a two year battle. Changed some medication, started a gym routine, getting to bed relatively early and am learning how to deal with stress/anxiety better. I still enjoy my pizza, tacos and burgers once in a while. I spent the last 2 months traveling between Sumter, SC and Lawrenceville, Ga helping my parents and sister with household maintenance. There were a few weeks where I traveled to both places during the week. Even though I was exhausted, my family has become very important to me as I have gotten older.

   I have always quoted the definition of insanity to people , but apparently forgot to apply it to myself. Basically, it's doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different outcome. For the past few years, I've tried to play tournaments while trying to raise money at the same time. It just doesn't work. My last trip to Orlando, I was down to my last $30 after leaving the event. I was exhausted, and probably shouldn't have been driving. I didn't have enough for a hotel, so I drove home.  If you're worried about that, how do you expect to concentrate during an event? Answer is, you don't! I was set to make the same mistake this year. I was all prepared to make a trip to Orlando in January even though I wasn't ready in any aspect. Lucky for me the weather changed all of that. I cancelled my trip and had to to think about what I was doing and what I needed to do to get where I wanted to be. I've been working with Ken Husvar(Victory Golf) to get properly fit with my equipment. My man, John Galyean, has been the eyes on my swing. I go to the gym with a plan instead of winging it. My sponsor, Better Brain & Body, is teaching me how to focus at a better level. My old friends at Dynamic Health & Pain Management helped me with some knee issues. I've assembled a great support team that I can count on to be there.

   In closing, I always need to thank the people that have been there since the journey started. My boys have been there since the days behind the bar at Champps Americana. They keep me humble and have always been there. I hit some lows the last few years, but they had my back. I appreciate you guys more than you know. I promise to make it up to you and make the journey worthwhile very soon.  Thanks to all the people that continue to support RBGOLF. Stay tuned, it's going to be a great year!
