Just couldn’t do it. Could not finish chalean extreme.
Not because it was too hard (it was challenging, don’t get it twisted!)
I just got bored! And I’m not surprised.
I made it to day 68 and I was done. The strength workouts changed every 30 days, 3 days a week, 3 different routines. And I had made it to the 3rd phase, woohoo! But I wasn’t feeling it anymore, so I stopped. Meh. Remix! That was 2 weeks ago. Last week I did mostly brazil butt lift and enjoyed it! This week for me it’s all about walking. Walking is like moving meditation for me. It’s my therapy, and clearly there’s some crap I need to work thru so I’m hitting the pavement.
Next week I will add more resistance back into my routine. I know how beneficial it is to my body. And I will definitely go back to chalean extreme. Hopefully this time I will finish the entire 90 days. I just might need to make sure I mix it up a few days so I don’t get so bored.
There’s a part of me that’s really disappointed I didn’t finish the first round. But I am proud of myself because I did not stop exercising all together.
I just needed more variety. Two years ago I probably would have just stopped. Period. I am grateful for all the positive changes I have made since then. I am in a much better place, and I am in this for the long haul. Slow and steady…
