Wilmas Outlook for Life, Amazing Journey....
I first met Ginny Mcarthur from Outlook for Life back in 2006 when I was training for my first Half Marathon. Ginny improved my nutrition & replaced & improved my training program.
I have since enjoyed & completed 3 Half Marathons. Then studying & juggling millions of other things overtook me & I forgot how to look after myself for a few years.... To cut the story short I was in bad shape, unhappy, very tired, grumpy, insomnia etc.... (all the baddys you can imagine) I may not have looked overweight but I was grossly unfit!!! Then in February this year I got a news letter form Outlook for Life... An 8 week boot camp. I wanted to do it, but couldn't decide, thinking " where am I going to get the time for exercise & how am I going to concentrate on my diet while running a home beauty clinic business, a family of six (One of my boys -16 years old has cebral palsy, disabilities & is fully dependant) ."( well these were some of my very good excuses anyway!).
A few days later I mentioned this to my friend Paula Ross, then she texted me that she was going to do it! The day of the boot camp registration, my body was dragging me to the Tractor Centre where Outlook for Life is based (my brain was not fully convinced on what my body was planning to do ha-ha!). From then on I have focused on my goal, why I am putting myself through this & constantly reminding myself of those reasons.Then I set my mind & body to enjoy the journey & have lots of fun along the way... Focus, Determination & Discipline was my strength achieving my goals. Hard work but its well worth it! Ginny & her team from Outlook for Life are truly Inspirational!!!

If You Have A Dream
Don't wait for some distant day to come,
it may be too late before you've even begun.
Not everyone will agree with all you decide.
Be true to yourself first and foremost.
The only important thing in life is what you do
with the time you spend here on earth.
Don't be afraid to follow your desires,
they are not silly nor selfish.
Take the time and do what makes you feel alive.
Leave your fears and regrets in the past,
for this is where they belong.
Don't cloud today with things that can't be undone.
You have no more control over yesterday or tomorrow,
than you do the raging of your passions.
Do not quiet these dreams nor quench your desires.
For if you do, your journey is ended.
You have only today to begin anew and follow your dreams.
For in the end all we have are our memories.
When the twilight comes to us, let there be,
No excuses, no explanations, no regrets!
