Get Motivated For a New Year: Best Posts of 2013

I Fucking Love Fitness
Happy New Year.. from me, my bike, The Doctor and Toby. 😛

2013 was another amazing year that passed by in a blink of an eye. Quickly skimming through my 2013 blog archives, I already knew it was another successful year for me in health and fitness. I met many passionate and inspiring people, stayed motivated and committed, trained consistently, trained like a beast, forced convinced my sister to get a road bike, had countless adventures, discovered new places, climbed many mountains (on my bike) and kept myself healthy and happy all year round.

2013 was a huge year for me in cycling. I was given the opportunity to be a blog ambassador for the Whistler Gran Fondo which also meant I had to ride in it, and that led me to live, breath and dream cycling 24/7. It is an amazing addiction. My entire summer was a blur that went by way too fast because it was all about getting on my bike as much as I can and looking forward to weekend group rides, followed by massive feasts. My blog was filled with cycling related posts last year and here are some of my favorites:

  1. Why I Love Cycling
  2. How to Get Into Cycling
  3. Tips For Biking to Work
  4. Random Things I Learned While Cycling
  5. Cyclist Problems
  6. Stretching For Cyclists
  7. Secrets of a Cyclist
  8. Why You Should Cycle in the Winter

Happy new year everyone!

At 24CARATINC, we teach you to be the CEO of your own life, and how to live it unapologetically and effortlessly.

We are all about doing what you love and staying in your own lane. Extreme self-awareness and curiosity is your biggest superpower. Plant seeds.  🌱

My background is in tech but now I am an expert on productivity-hacking, motivation, accountability, coaching, nutrition, and living a happy yet disciplined and committed lifestyle— and I’ve been doing so “effortlessly” for well over 10 years.

After years of studying and applying this skill we call DISCIPLINE, I’ve learned how important it is to be consistent to inspire others through implementing and cultivating good habits.

This is my journal and honestly I write but I rarely proofread. I don’t have time, and I gave up perfection a long time ago. I have been practicing this art of putting my thoughts on paper (or the web) since my mom gave me my first diary when I learned how to write. Just like my life, this journal is not perfect.
