DecemBURN – Transformation Continued
As my husband says, “Oh my holy cow.” I gained so much strength and flexibility from the Blogilates Beginner’s Calendar. I thought I was ready for one of Cassey Ho’s regular monthly calendars.
I was and I was not.
As difficult as I thought the Beginner’s Calendar was at the start of that calendar, Decemburn was so much worse. It burned. Big time. I took more breaks and used more modifications in order to get through it. Toward Christmas I started to slack off because my son was out of school for winter break. For once my husband took a ton of time off for the winter break too. There were too many movies watched and too many afternoons of watching my husband nap. I got lazy.
But I didn’t give up. I just didn’t do every single workout every day like I had been pushing myself to do. The workout line-up had gotten so difficult toward the end of the month that I found myself making more and more excuses to procrastinate and then not do them. It occurred to me that I was pushing myself too hard and didn’t want to continue again so I backed off after Christmas and promised myself that, as long as I did at least one video a day (preferably 2-3 at least), then I could consider the day a success and be done.
With that in mind, I felt renewed and was able to push myself (not difficult to do anymore) to do a few workouts every day for the rest of the month. Though I started to fumble early to mid-20s in the month, I finished strong and happy.
Sometime during December (or possibly during the Beginner’s Calendar), I found Cassey’s How To Do A Headstand video. After watching it I thought I’d try it. I’d be against a wall so what was the worst that could happen, right? I’d fall over. It was more a battle of conquering my fear of falling. And that fear I did and do have.
Where there’s a will, there’s a way.
Not a flattering picture but I’m more interesting in the fact that my feet are above my head! And I’m not leaning against the wall! Woo!
Around that time I also started a yoga challenge. I’ll comment more on that next time.
