Love and love-a-bit-less relationship…

It’s not a love and hate relationship, it’s a love, and a love-a-bit-less relationship. We first met a few years ago at the break of dawn near the watershore. The sun was just peeking from the horizon and the summer beach bugs were swirling around from time to time. It was a strange encounter, one that left me breathless… weak in the knees and dizzy. Every move I took was difficult, after all, this was my first time in this type of relationship.

I left the beach early, with no commitment to come back or stay away. I wasn’t sure if this was for me. For days, every movement seem to remind me of this 40 minute encounter. It was a short encounter, but for me, it was one that I would never forget. I did return and although it was painful for me, I saw that the more I learned from this connection, the better I became at keeping pace.  Weeks went by and changes happened. I felt stronger, more aware of my body and aware of my inner strength. I walked with a softer step and a  more focused mind. I looked forward to more encounters but alas I had to let go. Due to circumstances beyond my control we had to part. I tried it on my own, but it just wasn’t the same. I even went as far as getting some in the house – surely this would fill the void and get me back on track…

Well, it’s on again! Actually my first official re-encounter will happen November 6th at 6 o’clock. I am anxious and concerned a bit as I know what is about to happen. They say distance makes the heart grow fonder, in my case, distance made my heart work harder… not a good thing! Therefore, I pledge to all that this relationship has to become a permanent relationship in my life! Others may not approve or like my choice – there are many more choices out there for sure. However, I know what worked best for me!

Kettlebells – I know I will not love you as much at the onset – but I know how good you were for me. I know how strong I felt having you in my weekly activities and how much more energy you gave me. I also know the pain of even sitting down (those quads will hurt like there was no tomorrow) and climbing stairs. A week from our re-encounter, I will stop moaning each time I have to move around. A month after our re-encounter I will feel full of energy and leaner (I got a long way to go to get lean, but the process is getting leaner day by day).

In a few months from our re-encounter I will pledge my undying commitment to not keep you hidden away and I will not leave you unattended for months at a time. The countdown is near – until then, I will do simple squats, wall presses and pushups…

Welcome back, dear KBs! As well, welcome back trainer Mary who was always able to get one more swing out of me! Now, where was that A535 muscle relaxing cream?
