Wow, today is day 2,000 of my new life! I say “new life” because five and a half years ago I said goodbye to my former self, and changed my life forever through diet and exercise.

2,000 days ago I was obese, out of shape, unhealthy, a drug user, a daily drinker and absolutely disgusted with myself. Years of bad habits were slowly killing me, and I hated myself for allowing it to happen.

2,000 days ago I made the choice to take control of my health, and regain what I’d let slip away through addiction and pure laziness. Looking back, I honestly feel the choice I made on that day was the single most important decision of my life. Over the past 5+ years my entire life has changed, and I’m not just talking about my health. I’ve never been happier than I am right now, and I owe it all to the healthy lifestyle I adopted 2,000 days ago.

I will not be celebrating this day with junk food or anything like that. I figure the best way to pay tribute to this red-letter (er, red-number) day is to have an awesome leg workout this afternoon!

Before I sign off, I want to point out that it did not take 2,000 days to make huge changes. I was feeling better in a matter of weeks. Don’t think you can’t do it, because I know that you can. All it takes is desire and discipline, and the courage to get started.
