Who IS this guy?!!

In short, I am a middle-aged male who has led a largely sedentary lifestyle for most of the past 20 years. Over that time, I put on a large amount of weight, lost much of it, and then regained some of it again.  I have been through upheavals in my life, such as the loss of family members (2 nieces, 1 nephew, 2 grandparents, and 1 cousin), a divorce and the subsequent loss of contact with my 2 sons, workplace problems which led to stress induced anxiety and depression, as well as a number of other incidents which I have found to be difficult periods in my life. In many ways, I believe that am not so different from the average person likely to be reading this blog, and I suspect that if you have found me here you are searching for help, information and inspiration to complete your own life-changing journey, so I hope that the articles I publish here will serve to inspire you to achieve your goals no matter how lofty they might be.

This blog documents my personal journey to lose weight, improve my health and fitness, and to becoming a Master Personal Trainer by September 2013.  I’m sure that my journey will continue long after I reach all of my goals, and as my journey changes from getting fit to promoting fitness, I will continue to document my journey as it grows and changes over time. I hope that in a way, I will be paying forward to others the help love and support that I have received when I have needed it, and if anything in this blog benefits you personally, I hope you will also feel inspired to pay it forward.

    How on earth did I not realize that I wasn’t following your blog earlier!?

    Looks like I have a weekend of reading to catch up on 🙂

    Good luck on the 2013 Master trainer, If I could give you the certification I would. You have been so encouraging along my journey thus far!

      Thanks Christie. 🙂

      I start the course in March and I’m seriously excited about starting it. I hope you enjoy what you read and that you find a nugget of inspiration every now and then. And my wish for the both of us is that by the end of this year, we both have a “success story” to tell. 😉

      I’m waaay ahead of you… I subscribed about a month ago! 😛

      I seriously can’t wait for my course to kick off. Only 5 more sleeps to go until I start my first session and officially get the first steps of my new career under way. The suspense and build up is even bigger than waiting for Christmas! LOL
