We’d like to recognize our Lemoine Wellness Champion of the Month for January – Rod Gravouilla!
For those of you who don’t know, Rod started his journey with Lemoine in 1998 as a Drywall Mechanic. Since then, he has transitioned into Assistant Superintendent in the Lafayette area.
To stay healthy, Rod drinks protein shakes in the morning. He limits his intake of bread, rice, pasta, etc.
When asking Rod what motivates him to stay active and healthy, he says he wants to have a good quality of life as he gets older. “I hunt and fish, so I want to be able to continue to do what I love for the rest of my life”.
Rod started his journey following a diabetes diagnosis that he received in 2019. He mentions his wife really pushed him to start losing weight and eat healthier. He says, “I was also feeling uncomfortable and would find myself out of breath doing normal everyday activities”.
Rod’s advice to living a healthy lifestyle is to be proactive, not reactive. “If you take care of your health early on in life, you won’t have to deal with having to make dramatic changes to your diet and your lifestyle later on in life”.
Awesome job, Rod! We are so proud of you! Keep striving to be a healthier version of yourself every day!
