Hi everyone. My wife, texanyogi, has already given a little background on us. Like she posted, we became vegan in December of last year, and haven't looked back.

Yes, I am a cop. I've been a police officer for eight years, so being in shape is definately important, not only for my personal health, but for safety on my job.

I have had a difficult year with my workouts. I am coming back from shoulder surgery last year. I tore all the cartilage in my left shoulder, and ruptured my biceps tendon during a martial arts class. It sucked, but if you are gonna learn then u have to train hard. Now, I have titanium hooks holding all the cartilage down in my shoulder. I went through four months of rehab, starting with 1/2 lb dumbell curls. I am now up to 25 lbs, and gettin stronger. My shoulder was in a sling for 4 months, so i basically shriveled up to nothing. Now, its time for me to put the weight back on.

I have some workout questions, but i will post in another area.

My wife and I are excited about being part of this website, and look forward to talking to all of yall.

Thanks for joining our site! I hope you have a great time on here. We have a really great, supportive vegan community, and we have a lot of fun too!

I'm at a library so my minutes are running out but I'm sure we'll be hearing more from one another.

All the best and welcome aboard!
