Thank You to Our Kilimanjaro Participants!

Thank you to everyone who has signed up to challenge themselves with the Kilimanjaro hike. Not only are you going to be taking on a task that will prove beneficial to your health but it is also going to be a unique and fun experience one will never forget. We would also like to thank everyone for following us and keeping up with our nutritional lessons.

Whether you are climbing a mountain or taking a jog around the blog, just make sure you are doing something! You don’t have to keep things too mundane either. Try mixing things up next time you workout so maybe instead  jogging around the block, you could join some hiking trails, or climb up a neighborhood hill or even try running up a sand dune! Anything you can do to keep you working out is key! By making sure things don’t get too repetitive, you will look forward to your workouts and enjoy them more.

exercise-heartAnother point we would like to make is to make sure you don’t get too burned out. Sometimes we can work our bodies so hard and so often that we don’t give ourselves sufficient time to rest and relax. If this happens to you, you may find yourself extremely demotivated and unwilling to workout. So, it is extremely important to make sure that you are giving your body enough relaxation time so you can reboot and attack your workouts hard every time.

At the bottom of it all, it is just simply important to keep yourself motivated. If taking a day off so that you could attack your next workout harder, do it. At the end of the day, you won’t continue doing something you don’t enjoy so make sure your diet and workout habits are something that you can keep for months at a time. Anyhow, if you are reading this right now, you are taking the right steps towards getting healthy so you’re doing something right! Continue to be responsible and make the right decisions and you will see a new you in no time!

Kilimanjaro Climb

Are you looking to challenge your body or put your new found health to the test? If you are, you have a great opportunity to do so with The Clinic by Dr. H. The Clinic will be climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro, the highest free standing mountain in the world and highest point in Africa, and you can join them in the adventure!


Mt. Kilimanjaro is host to a multitude of ecosystems and is home to many unique and awe-inspiring animals such as olive baboons, bush pigs, aardvarks, and mongooses just to name a few. Taking the climb up the mountain will be both challenging, yet one of the most rewarding experiences one can accomplish.

Climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro can be a daunting task, but if you are lacking in motivation, make sure to read a blog post by Ajay Rochester, which can be found HEREAjay took upon the arduous burden of completing an olympic triathlon. An olympic triathlon is composed of a 1.5 km swim, 20 km bike ride, and ends with a 10 km run. Although the event crew began cleaning up the course while Ajay was still running, Ajay never gave up and  yelled at workers to leave cones on the track for her to run around. In the end, she kept her will alive and was able to successfully complete the exceptionally difficult task that is an olympic triathlon.

However, Ajay has not stopped there. It is her new years resolution to shed another 20 kilos and be in the best health of her life, all in the memory of her lost mother. Her story is truly inspiring and goes lengths beyond this post. Again, you can check out her story HERE.

If you feel motivated by this point, feel free to sign up for the Mt. Kilimanjaro climb so you can make a difference for yourself as well. You can sign up for the climb here: RISE TO NEW HEIGHTS.
