The next day I tried a squat. Perhaps I was a little ahead of myself after the success of the tire. I was horrible, but I didn’t give up! The next I tried deadlifts! Then cardio! Boy did I hate cardio; that is until I looked at the scale! Just like that five pounds was gone! I followed his workouts the best I could until I was confident in what he’d shown me. By then I sought out information for myself. I found a love in compound crossfit movements and a bit of strength training for the core lifts. Turns out fit men and women do have a beginning…sometimes the light at the end of the tunnel seems so far away that the journey itself firsr fades from practicality and then from your reality. I am yet to reach that light. I don’t think it’s ever meant to be reached. But when I look back now, torward the darkness that contradicted the reality of this journey, I see it to be much farther away than that light in which I chase!
