fat adamWhat’s in a year? Everything you want to fit into it. Think life is over? Look at everything I packed into ONE YEAR – and you can do the same. Even making one goal a month could get you moving in the right direction. My first goal was just to start getting 10,000 steps in a day.

As we wind down 2014, I want to share with you what has become the best year of my life. You are never too old to get going, folks. I turned 41 this year and have done more and am more fit than I have ever been in my life. Stop being sedentary and start doing! Learn to enjoy and love life to it’s fullest. I think I packed this year pretty full. Let’s look how I started 2014.

Get started with your new years resolution with my free Paleo ebook.
