Motivation Tuesdays: The darkest hour is just before the dawn

Good evening folks!

Today marked an important milestone in my fitness journey – I completed my 100th workout since I started weight lifting!


From 1 workout to 100!


Of course I still have a long way to go but I couldn’t be happier to see the progress I have made so far.

And of course the going gets tough sometimes – from diet slips to not being able to slip out of bed it has been a journey with obstacles a plenty!

However I always look for ways to motivate myself and look for inspiration around me. Sometimes a photo on instagram or pinterest is enough, but sometimes I need to dig out the heavy artillery.


So I was very happy to come across a video on YouTube from well-known US fitness model Paige Hathaway. It tells a touching and inspiring story which I would like to share with you today.

In the video below she shares her journey from poverty to one of the biggest names in fitness:

I hope this video inspires you too and reminds you that everyone is fighting their own battle – you’re not alone 🙂
