Lunging Through Day 3
Sunday, May 01, 2011
YeowLing and I lunged at Day 3 of the Spring into Shape Challenge.
Actually, YeowLing laid on her back, purring while watching me. I'm telling you......that cat is something else.
Okay. I was overjoyed when I found out today's video was only 6 minutes long. I thought "This is a good thing, and I am sure I can do it".
By now, you all know what I get when I think.
Nothing's new in that category.
Today Nicole was into lunges.
I don't do lunges gracefully. I do more of a lurch.
I use the excuse that I have bad knees (true), and that keeps me from good form (false).
I have bad form because I can't get my body and what I see on the screen to connect.
Nicole does these lunges without hanging on to something for dear life. She just lunges away, seemingly mindless.
Not me. I have a death grip on the desk, and no matter how hard I try, my lunges really are lurches.
She is just chattering away, lunging to her heart's content, and I am doing my spasmodic lurch.
However, I DID notice in this video that she is actually breathing harder than I have ever heard from her before, so I am encouraged. She actually even slightly lost her balance once.
Do you suppose this woman is actually HUMAN???!!!
So I kept up with her today, doing my lurches and trying my best to figure out how to lunge.
DH was downstairs, not brave enough to come watch today. He's much better off staying down there.
So okay. I lurched, walked and now am going to do gardening. Then I will quilt.
All in all, a pretty darned good start of the day!
