Last night, Craig told this little story - in hilarious fashion - I wanted to share. It went something like this...
"I was vegan for about 8 months when I came to training. By Thursday of Week 1, I had a 67-year-old woman trainee helping me hold myself up and said, "Shelly, I ought to be helping you like this! I'm 30!" ... Somehow my veganism came up, and she suggested I eat some meat.
"So I went to Whole Foods and bought the grass-fed, free-range, home-schooled, they-played-chopin-as-you-sacrificed-yourself-for-little-ole-me hunk of beef. I went home, put it on the grill for 5 seconds on each side, squatted down and ate it with my bare hands, drippings all the way down my elbow, until it was gone.
"The next day, I went and got a whole rotisserie chicken, and promptly inhaled the whole thing....then, I was constipated for 4 days. The morale of the story: If you've been off meat for a while, consider some fiber as you go back to it."
A little bit about Craig. Training starts in 50 minutes! Today will no doubt be more of a drill Sargent approach, versus last night's "we don't want to terrify you....just yet, anyhow."
