Ha! That title was a little bit of a stretch, though not entirely. I am about 58 days in (minus the cheat days, of course) into this life altering exercise and things are good. I am excited about a couple of things…..
1) I have really started to look at what I eat and it not only has made me feel better, but I am healthier for it, stronger for it and committed.
2) I am stronger and more focused.
3) I accomplished something I set out to do.
4) I have hit another couple of goals. Probably not major to most of you reading this, but one of those goals was to string a couple of kipping pull-ups together (see video below). I am certainly not as fluid as I will be, but I did it! Big step for me.
5) It’s almost over.
OK, that last one is a stretch, but man, am I looking for some heavy, thick beer a Lee’s Imperial Hoagie and Wendy’s french fries. I am going to wreck those three things like a pack of wolves that haven’t eaten in 6 years. I might even hold an event to allow you to watch that happen and charge for tickets. It will be a sight to see.
I digress. As you know, this whole exercise and diet makeover has changed a lot of things for me. I am better for it. I feel more powerful (in almost every aspect of my life) than I have since I was a punk senior in high school.
That said, I am glad it is almost over. So I can cheat and eat. So I can start this whole journey all over again and hit some new goals. It is small progress, but progress nonetheless. Seize the day.
