Premier Robert Ghiz
Premier Robert Ghiz is celebrating a milestone birthday today.
Ghiz, born Jan. 21, 1974, turns 40. A year ago, Ghiz made a commitment to himself that he would get in the best shape of his life before turning 40.
During his year-end interview with The Guardian in late December, Ghiz said he made some progress in meeting his goals. He dropped nearly 25 pounds, transformed his diet and introduced a new fitness regime that has moved him ever so closer to his ultimate goal.
“Ten years from now, I’ll be 50,” Ghiz said in December.
“My father was diagnosed with cancer around that stage and passed away at the age of 51... I’m going to be 50 or 51 and I’m going to have a 15, 13, and 11-year-old.
“I want to be able to look forward to my kids’ high school graduations, university graduations, marriages and all those things.”
No word on how the P.E.I. premier will be celebrating his special day.
