I have noticed a bit of a spike in my stats this week, I wasn’t really thinking much about it until it dawned on me that it’s the first week of January…i.e. National Everyone Tries to Get their Booty in Shape Week.
The Holidays are over and New Years Resolutions have been set, so what’s left for the world to do then strive for a healthier ‘09? I’m sure many of you notice the same trend at the gym. Right now you will be seeing a lot of new faces lurking around the cardio equipment, unfortunately most of the new faces tend to disappear before the start of February, but I want to prevent that from happening.
Exactly a year ago today was when I first decided to make a change in my life. Sure, I had made the resolution to lose weight in the New Year, as I had always done, but this year was different. On January 8, 2008 I had a doctors appointment that forced me to step on a scale after sever months of hiatus and see exactly where a year of fast food and a desk job had landed me. It wasn’t pretty, so I dove 100% into a new life and never looked back.
I am proud to say I am not one of those countless statistics who gave up in under a month. I broke the mold and adapted a healthy more fulfilling lifestyle then I had ever imagined. Now, I am challenging YOU, all my new readers, to do the same thing! I invite any new reader to comment with their goal and see if we can stick it through. I am here to help in any shape or form that I can. You all know my story, let’s see if we can write a happy ended for you as well.
E-mail me at email@example.com with any questions you may have and may I be the first to welcome you to a healthier New Year.
Right now, I am working on a project with my cousin that I hope to launch tomorrow. I think it will be a great motivational piece.
In the mean time here are some great articles I discovered this morning and wanted to share with you. Just a little something to entertain you at work.

And in case any of you are wondering, here are my eats from today.
My midmorning snack consisted of all the remaining Grapes and Cherries I had in my fridge.
I made mini sammies with the cheese and biscuits. Yum!
Alright people its time to get back to the grind. See you at dinner! 🙂
