I'm fostering a renewed commitment to self-care, a stronger belief in my ability to make positive changes, and a glimmer of hope that my wildest dreams might be possible. - Ninja Tom
Don’t let anyone kid you. This is NOT EASY. I’ve cooked more in the last 6 weeks than in the last 6 years. I’ve eaten more protein in the last 6 weeks than in the last 10 years. In the last month and a half, I’ve spent more time planning meals, buying groceries, cooking, eating, drinking water, peeing, cleaning dishes, tracking calories and protein, drinking more water, washing more dishes, peeing, eating more and tracking more and cooking more and peeing more and drinking more and washing more fucking dishes and pots and pans than I have spent doing anything else, besides work and sleep.
The classes are almost a relief. (I said, “almost!”) They are awesome. The staff is incredible. They walk you through everything patiently, step by step, making sure your form is correct. But once things get swinging (literally), it is FULL-OUT-NO-MARKING-YOU-BETTER-WERK. At the end, if you can get up off the floor, you leave with an outrageous feeling of accomplishment and pride, still laughing at the dirty jokes.
Yes, I lost weight. Yes, I gained muscle. Yes, I’m stronger. And, YES, that shit rocks – gimme more! But for me, the biggest changes going on were in my head. I’m fostering a renewed commitment to self-care, a stronger belief in my ability to make positive changes, and a glimmer of hope that my wildest dreams might be possible. NOT EASY, but with enough focus, hard work, and help along the way… TOTALLY POSSIBLE.
Just like Snatched.
