Climbing to New Heights
Hello Start Healthy Friends! My name is Michael Winkleman and my journey to start healthy began with a phone call from my doctor saying I had skin cancer. The weeks that followed were up and down for me both emotionally and physically as fear began to take over. As a business owner and father who is always on the go, I was already struggling to consistently eat healthy and workout regularly. However, the news that I had skin cancer struck a deep nerve in me, along with other things in life, making it hard to focus.
A good friend, who knew nothing about what I was going through, knew something was bothering me. He encouraged me to seek out mentors in both business and my personal life. He told me I needed to start every day with a plan. Well, thanks to the wise advice of the Start Healthy CEO, I took the bull by the horns and I made a plan for taking my life back!
The cancer is gone and the scars that remain from the cancer treatment only make me look tougher! Now I am starting my day healthy with nutritious food, regular exercise and my drive for adventure is back! Over the coming weeks I want to get back to my MMA work outs, reintroduce a high protein diet, run, and return to the outdoor activities I love.
Specifically, over the next 60 days I want to achieve three simple goals:
1. Run the 5k Color Vibe
2. Rock climb Needles in the Badlands of South Dakota
3. Run the 5k Mud Run
I look forward to sharing my journey with you. I hope you find encouragement and renewed inspiration because no matter how hard life gets, you are worth Starting Healthy!
