What is the whole Do Life Movement? Well, I could try to describe it or you could just watch "the video"... if you haven't already seen it.
Seriously, that is freakin' epic.
Since I am also in the massive weight loss club, I felt pretty connected to the lows of being really overweight and so uncomfortable in your own skin... to the highs of being fit and strong. I can relate to this story and I imagine that most people, whether they've struggled with 5lbs, 500lbs or just a spot of depression can too.
I have also been thinking about what happens AFTER losing a lot of weight. Once it is finally gone, you can't imagine ever back sliding or going back to the clean plate club, but it happens. Correction, it CAN happen. Ben himself has shared via blog his back slide over the winter and his renewed commitment to a "summer of accountability" and that is something I can probably relate to the most.
|Of course, Flaherty was there to represent!|
I think the trick is to raise myself up because I when focus on poor choices I've made, I only want to make them again because I can never be perfect. So tonight, even though I was feeling less than fit and fantastic, I met up with the Do Life Tour at Sokol Park.

Sense of self renewed, yet again.
|Ben and some Goob that can't just smile like a normal person for a picture.|
If you're in Minneapolis... they are headed your way tomorrow!!!
Here's the link for the rest of the tour too!
