You know that line on Pitch Perfect, “Don’t put me down for cardio?” Well, that is basically how I have lived the last decade of my life. Don’t get me wrong, I love my fitness classes like hip hop and turbo kick but when it came to that dreaded treadmill there was no way I was getting on board. Still, even without a treadmill, I have managed to change, maintain and love my body using so many different methods.

Today I hesitantly joined a workout class that I have always been inconsistent with going to. I take insane amounts of mental preparation before I step foot in that door. I look for excuses not to go. Oh, it’s started 5 minutes ago. I’ll be too sweaty. What if I fart? Then today I realized something, I am awesome at this class. I love this class. I hate cardio, but I love this class! It is an hour strait of cardio kickboxing moves and I thoroughly enjoy every second of it! So naturally, during some kicks and punches I started wondering why if I like this class so much, does it take so much for me to get psyched about it? Then I started thinking about weight loss shakes.
It brought me back to a skinnier time, when I just started attending this class; the time I was drinking weight loss shakes. It all became so clear to me that I just knew I had to share the wicked truth with anyone willing to listen. Now, I’m not going to just full on bash weight loss shakes, I will give it to you strait. Let’s talk about the good, the bad and the harsh reality that it took me a year to accept (and still keep working on.)
