The following image came across my Facebook feed this morning and it really spoke to me. I am really enjoying Body Revolution, but I have a habit of fearing the future and it takes away a little of the joy of what I am doing. When I was struggling through workout 5 yesterday, I kept thinking "If I am having this much trouble, how will I handle future workouts?". But, I thought that about workout 3 and here I am on workout 5 still hanging in there, getting stronger, tighter more energetic. Why aren't I celebrating?
This was such a timely reminder for me. I need to just focus on what I am doing each day, do the best I can, TRUST my body. TRUST that I am getting stronger and I can handle it. I need to focus on my form, focus on my breath and be present. Not just for each workout, this applies to each movement. I shouldn't be dreading that running man is coming up, I just need to focus.
That being said, workout 6 was AWESOME! I puffy, puffy heart this workout- BEST one yet. I went on a walk to the park with my son this afternoon and I felt the old familiar soreness in my abs from a good workout. I have definitely been missing this. I love sore abs!! There was really only one move I struggled with- Statue of Liberty. This is another balance intensive move- my resolve to focus more and be present will help me master this one. Oh and my 'bummy' is sore too.
I am also extremely happy to be connecting with more bloggers lately. Does anyone want to start a facebook discussion group where we can check in our workouts and offer support to those in need?
