My Personal Rules: #3 Drink WATER

September 23, 2013 3 min read

At the very beginning...when I had no idea what I was doing, I took the first suggestion that was given to me. I was seventeen and the heaviest I'd ever been, when a personal trainer told me to drink nothing but water. water drop   My liquid of choice at that point was milk and diet pepsi. I probably went through five cans a day of soda and a glass or two of milk...with my cookies and waffles, of course. So because I had no idea where to begin, I had no other option but to latch onto his first piece of advice. He said, "Give it one month without anything but water and see what happens." Well, I did and here I am. If you have followed my blog you must already know this, because I talk about it a lot. This was a monumental moment in my change towards a healthy life. For whatever reason, that ONE suggestion made things stick. The flip was switched. The bell was wrung. The axe was thrown. The first week was hell. ABSOLUTE HELL. I would stand in front of the refrigerator with my hands sweating trying to will away my addiction to diet pepsi. It was like heroine. I became crazy for it. In fact, I think the only thing that kept me resisting the temptation was to literally sit on my hands.

The first day of JUST WATER. What. Had. I. Done. This was the day when I started seeing the trainer my senior year in high school. My mom took it the moment I got home. The first day of JUST WATER. What. Had. I. Done.[/caption] I couldn't believe that it was like going through withdrawals. Headaches, irritability, and just pure anxiousness. The second week was a little better and by the end of the month, I was only drinking water and I had dropped a couple of pounds. Not only that, but something besides weight was different. My skin was different, my energy was different...my mindset was different. I had done a month, so why not just go another. It was the breakthrough I needed to show myself that I could actually stick with something. I could actually say no to something. I am now over twelve years free of anything but water and tea. Yes, I added tea, but I Never get it sweetened. If I don't have honey or stevia than it is perfectly fine plain! I still look back on that one decision and can't believe where it led me. Are you kidding? I'm a person involved with fitness...you know, the one who knows how to help people reach their goals? It started with water. For one month I lived, breathed, swallowed, and although I couldn't walk on water...it was secretly taking over my life. My dad, who owned a business that built pumps for domestic and irrigation wells, once said, when asked why he loved his job so much, "There's just nothing like watching that water come out of that well...it's beautiful." He truly believed water was the source of life. It is.

Replenish your body with the greatest natural resource. It may change your life. XO, Tessa

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-6 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

 

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.
