This morning I decided was AM finally ready to tackle Chalean Extreme. I have had the program for at least 4 years,
and the when I tried it then I confess I was not ready for it. I couldn’t afford to buy all the extra free weights to do it but I did have more than enough resistance bands to get it done. I got frustrated very easily with the whole dang thing! All the lunges
and squats and super SLOW lifting. And pushups!
I wasn’t ready to just do it. Do what I could without hurting myself of course, then trying harder the next time. I was still in the I want it NOW mindset. So I ended up giving up.
Not any more. Got up this morning, pushed play and gave it my all. I was in the middle of my workout when it dawned on me that it’s all about slow and steady, the program and me. So now I feel like I’m in the perfect place mentally to not give up or give in. And Chalene is constantly saying lift slowly. Heavy weights, slow speed, low reps.
I got my butt kicked this morning! But I did it!
Looking forward to the next workout. Burn circuit 1 done
