We’d like to recognize our Lemoine Wellness Champion of the Month for September – Michael Ferguson!
For those of you who don’t know, Michael started his journey with Lemoine in January of 2016 as a Project Manager/Estimator in the Municipal Division.
To stay healthy, Michael limits his carbohydrate intake. He mentions that in Louisiana, it’s not an easy task. His advice is to “look over restaurant menus and choose healthy options and try to avoid fried foods or meals served over a bed of rice”.
When asking Michael what motivates him to stay active and healthy, here’s what he said “The three things that motivate me to stay healthy are my family, myself, and Lemoine. To be able to keep up with my four boys playing outside is one of my biggest motivations. The physical and mental benefits of working out has motivated me. Lemoine is the first company that I have worked for that encourages employees to become and stay healthier”.
Michael’s journey began about three years ago when he discovered he had a gluten allergy. Due to this discovery, he had to cut out a majority of unhealthy carbohydrates in his diet. Not long after deciding to live a healthier life, he began exercising. Since then, he now works out between 3-4 days a week.
His advice to others about living a healthy lifestyle is that “…it’s not easy. You must start making small changes to your lifestyle and keep building on them. You may have setbacks through different phases of your life, but you keep pushing forward, and strive to be your best.
We are extremely proud of you Michael! Continue striving to be a healthier version of yourself every day!
