What TV show are you currently loving?

In recovery, I watched all of The Office, Sons of Anarchy, and Trailer Park Boys. Now I want to catch up on The Walking Dead.

How do you like to unwind after a long day?

My day pretty much consists of work and a meeting. Then I go back to the house and hang out with my friends. Sometimes we BBQ, sometimes we watch a movie, sometimes we play some sports, but the camaraderie of other people in recovery is important to me. Some would say it is unparalleled.

What is your favorite exercise move?

I haven’t hit the gym as much as I did while I was in E-Care, but my favorite exercise move would have to be pull ups. When I first got clean I couldn’t even do one. I’d try my hardest and get maybe half way. Now I have a pull up bar in my room and do a couple sets before getting ready for bed.

What is your favorite thing to order when you are at a café or restaurant?

Bacon cheeseburger with lettuce, tomato, onion, pickle, ketchup and mayo.

Favorite health or beauty tip?

Love yourself and everything else will be beautiful.
