I never missed my kettlebell workouts. KB's was, and is, my #1 training priority. I never missed my yoga practice, as painful as it was, from the heat and extra bodyweight, to the self torture of having to look at myself in the mirror for over an hour, so dissatisfied with how I "looked".....and my practice suffered, not because I was 10lbs heavier but because of the judgements I put on myself. I still found myself outside walking, or on the treadmill (free membership to Equinox, lol). And I learned how to "Spin" in a desperate attempt to burn some extra calories and lose some weight.....but I kept on showing up to train.
.Like a diamond that forms under millions of years of pressure. You cannot buy this kind of muscle sophistication, you have to earn it.
In my opinion the shape of our bodies is more, or at least, as important as the size of our bodies. Sure, functional movement and cardio fitness is important, but don't we all want to look good? When we feel like we look good, we feel good. And when we feel good, we feel good!
