A surprise for my beautiful girlfriend, Dara
Dear Pooh Bear,
I could not have asked for a better girlfriend. I love the way you always help others before yourself. You are super caring and nurturing (almost to the point of annoying ex doctor appointments). You are real, and you don’t give a fuck what other people think — I love that.
Despite your fiery traits and lawyer-like approach to conversations, you always seem to bring a smile to my face no matter what. For example, as I am writing this, you are asking me what am I writing, why can’t you see it, is it about you, why am I laughing at you... and all the while… I am smiling.
Here are a few poems for you, monkey butt...
roses are red
violets are blue
You have amazing triceps
And I love you
If I were picking flowers in a field you would be the right flower
If I were buying a protein shake you would be a peanut butter chocolate
If I were choosing a protein bar you would be a Quest Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough
Shall I compare thee to a Brooklyn Bodyburn class?
Thou art more intense and rewarding:
And the sweat that yields will hither for years not just mere hours
The burn that I feel shall last eternal and the quiver of my legs will be from internal emotion not thy muscle fatigue
I am ridiculously grateful to have you in my life. You are beautiful both inside and out. Thank you for being you. I love you!
For anyone who's let themselves get a little overweight, Kirk Myers is the poster child for personal achievement in physical fitness. Growing up, Kirk was a shy kid from Kansas CIty, ballooning to more than 300 pounds on a 5'5" frame, and struggling to keep up both socially and athletically. His poor dietary habits finally caused his health to hit rock bottom. During an ER visit while in college, doctors found that his heart was enlarged and he had suffered congestive heart failure. He was only 21. This was his sea-change moment. His doctors placed him on a diet of green vegetables, and after completely changing his lifestyle and focusing on fitness, Kirk has lost 125 pounds and built an impressive body of work. At 35, and a ripped 180 pounds, he is a top trainer to celebrities, athletes, and professionals.
