The Healthy Giraffe – 5 Year Anniversary

The Healthy Giraffe is five years old! In some ways it seems like I have been at this for so long and other times it seems like yesterday. What is this you may ask? I wrote the purpose of The Healthy Giraffe just over five years ago…

The Purpose is to provide resources, support and community in an effort to live a healthy lifestyle. Take personal accountability for your health – no one else will. I have learned a lot of personal lessons in recent years…

The tagline, Add Health to Your Lifecan mean just about anything in the spirit of – when we add and continue to add healthy things in our lives, we move less desirable things out. This can be nutrition, fitness, relationships, how we spend our time, etc. So if it’s going out to walk once a day, running a block, a 5k, eating one more serving of fruit and/or veggies in a day – it’s about adding good (healthy) things in our lives, not missing what we think we are going to miss.

I have learned so much on my journey from living an unhealthy life to living a pretty darn healthy lifestyle now. I have so many people to thank for that. You can see more how my life transpired on the page – My Story.

To support the purpose, my commitment was to write a blog, “The Giraffe Paper,” once a week. I stuck to that for over four years and I stumbled four times this year for a few different reasons to get a weekly post up but I did post 48 times and now have written 290 blogs in the five years…averaging just over one a week…wow! I have written blogs spanning topics on nutrition, performance, the mind, our community and more…

A few highlights from 2022 include:

I hope to continue to journey on with the blog and more this year. If there is anything you would like me to write about please let me know and you can send me an email at
