My first round of Snatched was all about taking control, owning my body and my actions, learning to love the way I looked. I signed up as a last ditch effort to “lose the 10 lbs. so I can book jobs on Broadway,” but ended up teaching me how to love myself the way I was.
However, the real magic happened in Snatched II.
After a year of beautiful self-development, helped and encouraged by the amazing trainers at Mark Fisher Fitness and Beth Wittig, I had a good grasp on what to eat for my body, how to treat myself, self-care and loving myself, but due to the logistics of an 8-month tour, I was carrying around 10 lbs. that didn’t feel right. I signed up for Snatched II as a way to quickstart the weight loss but found so much more in those six weeks.
While my time in Snatched mainly started from a place of fear and striving for perfection (eating EXACTLY the right amount of protein, calories, beating myself up if I slipped one day or missed a workout), my time in Snatched II began with self love and allowed me to dive deeper into what that looked like.
I showed up for myself everyday. Sometimes that looked like eating exactly the right amount of calories and protein for the day, and sometimes that looked like having the second glass of wine while out with friends.
It looked like listening to my body. When I woke up and intuitively knew I needed a rest day, I took it instead of forcing and pushing through out of fear of “not doing it and then not losing weight.
It looked like doing my best, loving myself, being open to growth and then l e t t i n g i t g o.
This was the most beautiful six-week practice of “not making it mean anything about myself” but letting it teach me EVERYTHING about myself. And guess what… I still lost weight, got amazing results, and ended up lifting heavier weights than I ever have.
