I’m exploring the possibility of eating well and still losing weight, by focusing on exercise versus diets, restrictions and deprivation. Which, hopefully, explains all the sweat around here.
For the back-story, read How a Groupon Changed My Life. My trip to BLR, Fitness Ridge in November 2012 was the catalyst for change in my life. That trip to “fat camp” kicked me in the teeth, shook me to my core and woke me up to just how unhappy I was in my life.
It also inspired me to set a BHAG: I set out to exercise all 365 days of 2013 as I wrote about in my 2013 New Year’s Resolution . And I did. I actually exercised every single day, for 365 days in a row. Here is what I learned along the way. And here is a summary of what I lost and gained in the process.
This journey has been all about pushing boundaries, overcoming self-induced obstacles and proving [to myself] just what I’m made of.
This blog is my commitment to making better life choices and embracing a new, healthier lifestyle.
No more temporary “fixes” (diets, gadgets, cleanses, pills, etc.). There is no magic pill, no silver bullet. It has taken me a long, long time to figure this out. Results come from hard work. Period.
I decided to embrace a lifestyle that would allow me to be my best me. I also made the decision to write about my journey; to expose myself and all my insecurities and fears to the world [well, at least that small percentage of the world who finds and reads this blog].
I know this won’t be easy. And I’m confident there will be many [horrifying to me; entertaining to you] bumps along the road. But I’m committed to see this journey through to the end.
I am embracing my inner warrior one bead of sweat at a time.
