A Little Obsessed Day 4

This program has been a real blessing for me. Why you ask? Well, this sneak peek has given me the exact thing I need to focus on my health and energy.  I falter when I don’t have structure and I lose interest and start to go into my bad eating habits.  It’s a vicious cycle, there is never going to be a time that we don’t have to watch what we eat or exercise. It’s not like you take a magic pill and voila your cured, you aren’t going to crave chocolate anymore, or sweets or maybe you’re a potato chip person. Whatever is your weakness you have to learn that you can still have those things but just in moderation!

I have learned the hard way, and I find when I falter I do it hard. So when an amazing program like this one comes along and gives me the push I need to realize how much I needed this in my life right now. Stay focused on what my goals are and my dreams.  No excuses, never give up. I tell my challengers that every day. SO I guess I should start leading by example.

Day 4 had some tough spots like “frog squat” but what I found was that I was able to keep up! I only had to pause a couple of times! But pretty much kept up with Autumn, which was awesome. That’s the best part of progress is that when I start a program I literally suck at it. I struggle big time, it’s hard to finish a set. But after some time I am able to actually see that I’m getting better, mostly by the fact that I can improve each time. Do all 3 sets and then break.  That’s when I know I progressing. Now if all I had to do was exercise and not worry or work on nutrition I’d be set.  But then what would I learn right?  I do find I am not coordinated at all, in fact, it’s embarrassing at times. Trying to do the rocking horse was brutal, I ended up laughing so hard just figuring how ridiculous I look, but I didn’t care it’s in my house with just me and my dogs. Who am I trying to impress? The best thing was that I gave it my all and had fun doing it. I’m sure going to miss this program until it’s officially out.  I can’t wait. In the meantime, I’ll continue with 21-day fix & 21 day fix extreme. Still really good workouts for sure. week-3-day-1

This is one program that I have been so excited to try. Almost as much as bad as when I first started this journey! Have to admit after Day 1 and trying to use those bands I think that was a workout enough. Boy am I not coordinated at all! I was struggling with them so much I had to keep pausing on the video just to get my feet through. I felt like I was in Highschool all over again, when my high school teacher was teaching Gymnastics. Which I royally suck at by the way. She was getting everyone to do a handstand. Which I could not do for the life of me. So if you can imagine, I’m in Grade 9 in a class full of other girls and they’re all doing their Hand stands like it’s nothing. In fact, my teacher had a pet and she had her come to the front of the gym to demonstrate how to do the perfect Hand Stand!  I never felt the sweat and panic rush through me as I did that day.  Well, my body did not disappoint, every attempt to do a Handstand was a complete and utter failure, so much so that my Teacher noticed. So not that my sweating and panicking couldn’t get any worse, oh Yes, my friends, it did.  She had the Class stop doing the exercise and went on bringing me to the front of the class( my heart was literally leaping out of my chest) and she had the PET show me again how to do a handstand. So it was my turn, yes this was Not a Fairytale I’m pretty sure my Fairy God Mother was hiding in the corner of the Gym somewhere.  So I tried and failed, tried and failed, tried and failed. By about the 10th time( I know your thinking how could I remember how many times right?) Well trust me when you have a traumatic teenage experience you remember every detail.

It was Traumatic to me anyways. The teacher finally gave up on me and had me go sit down. She never did try to teach me how to properly do a handstand. Just dismissed me and my pile of sweat and fear.

I guess that’s one of the reasons why I love doing my own thing and my own time in my own house. The only judges I have are my pets. And you know what I love it. I actually started laughing trying to put on these bands. I felt even better when “Autumn Calabrese” even brought up how hard it is to work with them for the first time. As well they have been doing it for 80 days, so don’t panic or worry, You get better as you get going!  I just love her. She knows exactly when I need to hear that I’m ok, it’s not me, just keep doing the best you can! There is no Perfect!  Today I’ll be doing DAY 3 & 4 , and I can’t wait it will be challenging because I guess I’ll be using these things called “sliders” and already I can hear disaster coming!! But I don’t care, I love doing it and it’s fun and I wouldn’t have it any other way!! Don’t ever be afraid to try something NEW it took me a very long time to finally realize what I have been missing. Who knows maybe if my High School teacher took the time to work with me I might have loved Gymnastics and done really well. But that is the past not my future!
