Lately I have been inspired. I recently read two articles that encouraged me and motivated me to get started at the gym again. Both these stories started with small steps on a bigger journey to better health. The key is that you can make a difference with some effort each day. If you are looking for a story or two to motivate you and help you find your way back to the gym, check out this article from, The Hamilton Spectator, that featured my friend Shannon and her journey to better health that started in January 2009.
I was also inspired by someone I heard about through social media channels. His name is Andy and his journey to better health started in December 2011. He recently wrote on his blog about losing over 100 pounds and what a positive change it has made for his health and his life. I invite you to read the post he wrote on the one year anniversary of his journey to better health.
It’s amazing what you can do when you set your mind to it. Hopefully we all have stories like these two, to share as 2013 draws to a close!!
