Summer of 2013, Ben Stark learned he was pre-diabetic.  At 420 pounds, Ben made some changes and by March of 2016, he had lost 200 pounds.  Ben says, “my typical day now involves getting up a bit earlier than I had in the past.”  Every morning but Saturday after he lets 2 two dogs out, Ben works out at home on his rowing machine.  Three days a week, it is a long-distance workout and three days either a fartlek style workout or intervals.  Then he gets ready for work.

Ben proudly shares, “I make a point of parking as far away as possible so I have an excuse to walk more. While at work, I actively look for excuses to get up and move. Go up and down the steps, walk around, and walk to different buildings instead of drive.”  Ben eats his lunch that he brings from home around 2 pm to elogate his post-breakfast fasting.

After work, Ben consistently hits the gym where he does deadlifts, squats, bench press/incline bench press, press, pull-ups, chin-ups, rows, and dips 3 days a week. And finishes with a few sprints on the bike, rowing machine, or jump rope. The days he doesn’t lift, Ben bikes for 40 to 50 minutes. He ends his day by getting to bed earlier. – adapted from Nerd Fitness

Happiness consists in activity: such is the constitution of our nature; it is a running stream, and not a stagnant pool.
