This is fellow bro @rammouz91. Ramsey is the epitome of mo, battling obesity and becoming a new version of himself. Inspiring stories like his are what make Movember and Burpees For Bros. -Whats the first word that comes to mind when you heard about Burpees for Bros?
Heartburn -After losing 130+ pounds, what simple daily activity has gotten drastically easier?
Literally everything. The most surprising thing was just interacting with people. I think I'm kinder now that I'm not exhausted and sore all the time from carrying all that weight around. People also seem friendlier to me now. -What did losing the weight do to your lifestyle and headspace?
"It entirely changed how I think about and do pretty much everything. I did it halfway through college and my grades jumped from B's and C's to straight A's my final year and a half. I also spend much more time outside, cooking, and just going out and doing stuff in general which I think has made me more fun and confident and just generally happier overall." -You've completed a Spartan Race, multiple workout competitions, and have been testing anything athletic. Such a 180 lifestyle turn! What do you have coming in the future-races, competitions, events, a life PR?
"I really love doing competitions now just to try out stuff that I couldn't do before (I'm not competing to win). In April, my girlfriend Emma (also a DBS member) and I are doing a 70.3 Ironman in California. As for PRs, I only really started lifting heavy this year and I've started to really love the deadlift. In January my 1RM was 265 lbs, now it's close to 350 lbs, and I'm hoping to break 400 lbs by the end of the year (Maybe at the Push Pull Mini Meet)! I think it would be really cool to be able to deadlift and squat my former weight but my squat is really far away as for now." -Do you have any advice/tips for people who are doing their burpees?
"If burpees make you breathe heavy, widen your stance.
If you aren't good at jumping or have weak legs like me, narrow your stance"

Survivor // I met Steph in a Poli Comm class and immediately we vibed. We were just getting to know each other when she stopped showing up. At the time, I thought she dropped due to her crazy schedule. Fast forward a year and a half, we run into each other at senior gala. I noticed her hair was shorter and she seemed thinner, but her radiance was still gorgeous. 'I'm surprised you remember me with my short hair, most people don't' she said as her eyes welled up. When we finally were able to set up a shoot, she delved into her experience, her diagnosis, reactions of loved ones (YOURE BREASTS DO NOT MAKE YOU FEMININE fyi), and how she arrived at removing both her breasts. She voiced how much she wanted to support women in the same situation as her, to be an advocate. This experience was filled with tears (good ones), warm hugs, good food, and a deeper understanding to what it means to be a woman. We are not defined by our bodies, our breasts, how we dress, how we love, etc. WE ARE MORE. At the end of the shoot, I asked if she had a nickname. 'Rae' she said 'because people say I'm like a ray of sunshine'. So everyone, meet Rae. She's a warrior.
I am writing this in the capacity of both a cancer advocate and the Founder of two separate cancer coaching programs that I deliver to individuals, families and organisations.
The purpose of this post is to express my beliefs about why all cancer coaching programs should operate in accordance to a specific theoretical framework. Although this is in no way a guarantee of a quality or effective service, it ensures that there is transparency and accountability about the supporting theory to the ideas and the methods that are used in the program.
In terms of my own cancer coaching programs, I designed and tested my programs with one goal in mind. I simply want to ensure that I am able to provide the type of personalised cancer service that I wanted to be available for my own family.
This focus has now placed me in a position of working towards a point where I will be able to complete research to determine whether or not the framework behind THE CANCER BLUEPRINT and BEYOND THE BLUEPRINT is in fact beneficial.
None of this is possible without first having developed my own cancer framework. Secondly, this is also not possible without an absolute commitment to collecting data to evidence the quality of my work!
Very special thanks to the @cau1988 faculty & staff that came out to volunteer at the 6th annual “Harvest of Health” Wellness Fair this past Saturday. A huge thank you goes out to our student volunteers who gave their time to help raise health awareness in the community. These three students manned the #prostatecancer screening table with service and smiles!
The @cauccrtd had a great time at the 6th annual “Harvest of Health” Wellness Fair! Check out the wealth of awareness and educational materials provided on #prostatecancer by the Georgia #ProstateCancer Coalition.
My Dad had gotten to the point where leaving the house was not an option anymore. So he he would color. My friend gave this to me for me to color but I never got around to it. So I gave it to him. He worked so hard on it. Picked out a pallet of colors and worked on it and worked on it. Sending me little messages about that he hoped I would like it and that he was sorry sometimes he would fall asleep with the marker in hand. I love it Daddy and I will treasure it always. #findthecure#cancersucks#prostatecancer
