How out of shape are most of us??
I had never taken an exercise class before Precision Kettlebells. Oh, I had gym memberships and lifted weights, and even ran on the treadmill, but never a class with an instructor; someone to tell me what to do, how to do it and when to keep pushing. After my first class with Mike I realized that he was what I needed in order to get in shape. Prior to my first class I was running/walking about 2-4 miles on the treadmill 5 times a week. I took the 101 class and walked like an 80 year old for two days!! It made me realize how out of shape I really was. How out of shape are most of us?? I never ached, had the muscle shakes, or even broke a sweat when I went to the gym. Mike's workouts are amazing!!! I am a hot sweaty mess when I'm done. He is so good at being on top of my needs during the workout; a lighter bell, a heavier bell, a break, a change in the routine, a smile, a swift kick in the __S. Whatever it is, he has a sixth sense and just seems to know what I need.
I was very skeptical about the life changing diet Mike gave me, but it really works. The regimen is so gray, and in case you don't know me I don't do gray very well. I want to be told what to eat, when to eat it and how to eat it. You aren't going to get that with this diet. Everybody is different, what works for one might not work for another. Who doesn't read a new diet and see something that won't work for them. Then you write it off. This diet was the same for me. I saw “fast day” and knew that would be my biggest hurdle!!! Why am I going to starve myself when I have food to eat? It wasn't religious or anything, just ethical. But seeing everyone else do it, I wanted to see if I could. WOW I won't trade how I feel after fast day for anything. Mike says is resets your body. Really, there is no other way to describe how you feel the day after. You are reset, back to the beginning, cleansed.
I was shown a quote from Rawganic Vegan Facebook page during my 6 Week Slim Down. "Your diet, regardless of what type of food you eat, should not be your whole life and identity. You are so much more than that."
In an email to Mike I mentioned that looking at the ingredients, counting calories and protein, weighing food, and planning meals was a full time job. His reply was, "Yes this is a full time job. It's your body. There's nothing more important!"
I'm a believer!!. I’m sticking with Mike and PK!!
