OK, so last time I said I’d break down what we’re paying at Locomotion. My wife is really good at budgeting and numbers.
If you looked in our window on Thursday nights, you’d probably get a good laugh. There we are, Mr. and Mrs. Fitness, watching our homework videos on a laptop and stretching. My coach told me to stretch again on Saturday while I was watching Football, so there I was: rolling around on a lacrosse ball to loosen up my hips while Kirk Herbstreit was chatting away on GameDay.
When I started writing down the changes I’ve made, I thought I had maybe two new things to report. But now that I think about it, I have a list: I started adding a vegetable to almost every meal. We have fruit for dessert. I keep water on my desk (it’s just in a paper cup from Food, not a fancy bottle, but my wife got a bottle at Whole Foods) And I went to a group class. I’ll talk about that in a minute.
She texted me a website. Top headline: “Think You Can”, whatever that’s supposed to mean. I’m not trying to be all positive or make friends or any of that stuff. I’m just trying to drop a few pounds.
Alright, I joined a gym. It wasn’t that bad. I went the first day and did a bunch of the machines. I kinda just watched what everyone else was doing and copied them when they left. Some of it even came back to me.

I got my diet book in the mail. There are some ripped dudes on the front. And a chick in a bikini–you know, the same cover as every diet book. She’s holding an apple. I hate apples.
This is the story of someone looking to start getting healthier and live longer, as they told it to me. “Jim” is a pseudonym, and he doesn’t like the internet, or writing, or even talking about himself. But this is his story, through his eyes.

Beth Cosi is a magical unicorn… She’ll get you moving, she’ll meet you where you are, and all you have to do is show up…., a great introduction to yoga if it’s your first time, and always brimming with something for the more seasoned yogi too!
In the real world Tina has a job that’s near and dear to our hearts; She takes care of our Vets as a pharmacist at the VA here in Charleston. She can often be found nerding out with Coach Jay (they’re both closet nerds for sure) about the healthcare system, new medications, anatomy and physiology, and a host of other things that only 2 health professionals could enjoy talking about.
