A recap of yesterday and my thoughts on it
Friday, May 10, 2019
The new challenge was great; I only have. 8 minutes from yesterdays kickboxing to do today. I completed 7 other challenges fully!
This is a new take, a positive take on my typical hyper critical self. I'm working on being more loving, more compassionate, and ultimately more supportive of myself and my accomplishments. Because I view myself as immensely capable, I expect amazing feats. When I don't fully accomplish everything that I set out to, I can be rather harsh and hurt my own feelings. Lol. That seems about as dumb as I feel writing it but truth is truth.
I wouldn't talk to my best pal like that so I have resolved to not talk to myself like that anymore either.
The 35 second plank surprised me by being much harder to hold for the final 11 seconds! And the toe touches were a tad painful too. Nothing overbearing, just twinges to remind me of what needed more stretching. I struggled to get all 32 min in with kickboxing; after a breakthrough 20 sesh with the heavy bag, the other 4 minutes seemed to drag (hence why I still have 8 left to wrap up today).
I was so into watching my 600lb life that I want over my '32' on the treadmill! I felt amazing and had the idea of finding out when those shows come on so I can schedule gym time during the shows that I like! :). This was one of my happiest moments yesterday. Breathing the heavybag for kickboxing was freeing and soul cleansing. I spoke out things that had been plaguing me for years, shed a few tears, and gave the bag a good 'whatfor'! :)
It's times like these that I am most proud of myself. I get down in the dumps and feel blah, unmotivated, and generally craptastic but then I go and create a challenge, reignite my fire, and crush the $#1+ out of my goals. I really and freaking amazing and I must keep doing these things that help me remember it.
One day at a time, one change at a time. This life is a journey and I'm here to design and enjoy my ride. :)
