After a photo-shoot for my blog I realised just how out of shape I was, I couldn't use any of the photographs at all. A few days later a friend uploaded a twit-pic of me - I thought I looked like Jabba-The-Hut! It really hit me how overweight I was. After talking to my friend, Andy Gibney, who is a mind, body, fitness, and business coach I realised that if I wanted to reach 70 I drastically needed to change my attitude to how I looked after my body and lifestyle (after all, I have two teenage children who want me around for many years to come too!)
I'm a Broadcaster, Professional Speaker and Social Media Consultant, and over the next 12 months I am upping my game and will be talking to bigger audiences, at more prestigious events, and consulting for larger companies. I need to look the part and ensure that people learn the valuable knowledge that I impart without being distracted by my weight problem.
My one hour chat with Andy has really helped me get into the right mindset. I don't see this as a challenge, it's now become my "personal duty" to those in my life who mean the most to me and I'm determined that I won't let them down. I can say with all honesty that I'm really enjoying my journey to Hunkdom!
