Good Morning!! I went to dinner with my son Taylor last night, he dropped me off at the house and as Im walking in my house, I realize I have left my t.v on. The show blaring from the t.v., The Biggest Loser. Ya know its a pretty inspiring show.... but all I kept thinking? I live with a biggest loser, and no I dont mean it that way. My son, Taylor, has battled with his weight for a long time. Its ...a journey, and as a mom it is heart breaking. Over the years we have hired trainers & bought memberships. These things didnt work, because he had not decided he wanted to change. Last September he purchased, with his own money, a membership and declared, "This is it, Im doing this". Failing for him was not an option. He would go to class, go to work & then hit the gym. He would fall in bed exhausted and do the whole thing again the next day. The most amazing thing to exprience? Taylor was not making excuses, he was facing his fears and challenges. Since last fall he has lost 70lbs... its the most amazing thing I have ever seen. Total transformation inside and out. I'm learning from my 19 year old son, to face my challenges and fears and over come them. There is no easy way to reach our goals... its up to us to work hard. My favorite saying, "Clear eyes, full heart, cant loose." Everyone faces BIG challenges and fears but Taylor has put these words to actions. Happy Wednesday yall....
I opened the Cast Iron Grill in October 2007. Lots of changes have happened in the last 5 1/2 years. The CIG started with 55 seats in an office building located at 18th and K. After five years, we were bursting at the seams with now 167 seats, and 24 wonderful co-workers working on top of eachother to make it happen. 2012 the Lord chose a different journey for the CIG. We relocated the CIG and opened our doors on January 2nd, 2013, just four blocks away from the old location! It has changed my world completely! All of these stories are the happenings of the people and the joy and celebration that make the CIG what it is.
