My Badass Name is Tsunami

There has always been a part of me that knew that “skinny” wasn’t really what I wanted. Even skinny girls have that “soft” look. I never wanted to be soft.

You Only Live OnceNothing makes me feel more powerful and more confident than wrapping my hands, strapping on my gloves, and walloping on a bag with all of the intensity I can muster. That’s why when a kickboxing gym opened up about a year ago near where I work and live, I was beyond thrilled. It had all of the things I was looking for and wanted – circuit training setup with a supportive community, trainers, flexibility – I was stoked.

Since then, I’ve been going regularly and have made several new friends and met some of the most inspirational people.

No, I don’t look like the badass in this picture. But this is how I feel when I’m in my favorite place for sweat therapy, where people know me as “Tsunami.” I sweat, I laugh, I nearly pass out, and I leave feeling like the badass that I will someday look like. It’s going to happen. It’s just a matter of time.
