Ok, so it’s 2014 and I decided I wanted to try something new this year.  Something that would force me to be accountable to myself and the ambitions I have set for myself when it comes to my overall health.

Now what do I mean by health and why do I all of a sudden need extra motivation?

Most people who know me, know that fitness has been an important part of my life for many years.  Yes, my commitment to my fitness has wavered at times, but in general I like to think that fitness has and remains to be a very important part of my life.  So with that said, my continued fitness is obviously a big motivator behind this blog, but even more than that, I want to make this year about more than just my fitness, I want to make it about being a stronger me. Building a healthier, better, stronger me day by day.  And I am here to share my journey. My wins, my failures, my compromises, my goals.  My hope is that some of this information, if even a nugget, can be valuable to someone, even if  just one person.  It also gives me a platform to trace how my journey has gone and where I encountered some bumps in the road.

Last year was a bit of an eye opener for me, as far as my health was concerned.  Without going into boring detail, I will simply say, I had a health scare late last year that shook me a bit.  Made me look at my life and the steps I am taking to live the most healthy and happy life I can.  And it made me want to do more to be in control of it.

Over the next year I hope to be able to document this journey to better health and happiness and share as much as I can about what is working for me, what is not, and how anyone can take steps to change their life for the better.

Working on a better, stronger me.
