About Me Post

Hi!, I'm Max!

Welcome (or shall I say, welcome back?) I've been around these blogging parts before but had to call it quits after going through one of the most stressful times of my life. I've always been a supporter of "write how you feel" -- but I had no words. For the first time in my life, I didn't know what to say or how to say it. 

Let's rewind, 

Shortly after my then fiancé proposed, my dad's cancer took a turn for the worst. My "MAXOUT" blog was put on hold as I was working full-time and driving back and forth across west Texas to see him. He was all I could think about and my heart was broken. He took his final breath in July, and it was over. During some of his final days, we exchanged "I love yous" and he was able to meet Nate. I'm thankful for that time we had together. 

During this, we were planning a wedding, planning an Air Force move, planning BIG decisions. Along with putting my blog on hold, I put CrossFit on hold. Which is what my previous blog was supposed to be about. I eventually got back into it but I got hurt, and it was all my fault. I'll eventually get back into the fitness routine, but I have to give my body some time to rest. 

Ok so, let's turn this around and get ya caught up.

We're married. 


We live in Little Rock, AR. 

and we love it!

I'm no longer a TV news anchor... 

but I'm working on not being unemployed -- ya follow me?

Emily (our pup) is all grown up and looks like a miniature form of a lab.

She's a mess, but we love her.

I think I've got ya covered. I'm excited to be back! I'm ready to share this new chapter of my life, which is why it's appropriately named, "live life to the max!"

(pun is totally intended)
