Over the last couple weeks I’ve been up to Cianbro in Pittsfield a couple times to give a motivational talk on regaining our health with the example being my own story. I’ve been meaning to blog on this ever since I got back and I just kept getting pulled away to other things! I was one small part of a larger health and safety conference that was going on at the company. I have to say, I had a lot of fun interacting with the participants, fielding some great questions and telling my story. All in all, it was worth the trip up north both times and I was impressed with the companies’ desire to see their employees be healthy and offer incentives to help motivate!
It’s been fun speaking at different companies and organzations, but I have to confess that I have a selfish motivation for doing so: it helps keep me focused on my own health! I get overwhelmed when I think of being healthy in terms of the rest of my life … but if I just have to stay on track for a few weeks until my next speaking event or if I just need to behave until my next weight loss group … well that’s an attainable goal for me to focus on! It’s all about keeping it manageable!
