When I was 18 I was diagnosed with diabetes. I had never been motivated to be active before. By twenty, my health had slipped even more, and my doctor told me I may not make it to 50 at the rate I was going. My parents weren't even 50 yet. That was my wakeup call. My journey hasn't been easy but it's definitely been worth it.
I get bored with conventional exercises. We can keep working out longer if we enjoy what we're doing! For me, the key is adventure. I started with short hikes in pretty places with lots to see. Then I began mountain biking and kayaking. Now I'm into rock climbing and snowshoeing! Let's find something you love that gets you moving!
The gym is a place where I get ready for adventures. My eye is not on the elliptical; it is on the mountains I will climb and the rivers I will ride. My hope is that in sharing my adventures with you, I will inspire you to find your own adventures. Let's share the stories of the exciting places that our healthier bodies can take us.
