We’re now at a 5 week marker to being back in Chicago. Which is crazy and awesome, and I’m totally unprepared. As in haven’t packed a single box. As in no idea what I’m going to do when I get out there.
Also, exactly in 5 weeks I turn 30. So that’s fun. My whole ’30 before 30′ thing that I idealized 2 years ago, is in fact, silly. Although I did cross off a big portion off my list. And I am going to LA in a few weeks, mostly because I put it on my list. I also can do a million push ups, too, which is also because I added it to my list. So there’s that.
The cardio challenge has definitely held me accountable. I’ve missed 3 days this month, the first because I scheduled my time poorly, the second because I was hungover, and the third was from being ridiculously tired from a double the day before, and I was working another double that day. I was actually proud of myself for listening to my body and saying no to a workout that morning.
I’ve joined corepower yoga, and I love it. Seriously. I get a really awesome workout, I feel strong, and I leave not disappointed in myself. My intention at the beginning of every practice is to do the best that I can, and that’s exactly what I’ve been doing. One of the teachers recently said
Forget your history, it has no place in the present
and I’ve really taken that to heart.
I think the whole point of my challenge was because I wasn’t being healthy and I was giving excuses to justify why I had gained x amount of weight. I also REALLY hoped I could post an ‘after’ picture, and show everyone how fit and happy I am. Maybe after some time I’ll post amazing yogi photos. Of me doing crow in awesome ridiculous pants. THAT WILL BE AMAZING.
So I’m at day 23 of the challenge. I’m mostly fit. But I’m happy.
