Now is as a good a time as any, to set ourselves a challenge or a new goal, it's amazing what can be achieved in 6 or so weeks!
I thought I'd share the above photos with you, as these demonstrate to me personally, what can be achieved through goal setting & the benefits that brings.
The photo on the left-hand side is a photo of me back in October 2016, looking a bit disheveled following my very first half marathon; The Great West Run in Exeter.
I had over the years, dabbled in a bit of running but not consistently and not at any great distance.
Following a conversation with a colleague at work in April 2016, who had already registered for the event, I decided to enter too, but at the time not really believing I could do it.
Sadly my colleague had to drop out, I must admit I was tempted to pull out myself, but my mind was set, I had a training plan I'd devised, I was determined, motivated & I did it!
The second photo on the right, is me in 2020, now a qualified Nutrition & Weight Management Adviser, Personal Trainer & Fitness Instructor.
I would never have thought that less than 4 years later I would be in this incredible, rewarding position, running my own business, with no better purpose than to help people become healthier versions of themselves & literally transforming their lives!
All achieved, through setting myself very specific goals in 2019, following my 32 year career in banking.
