So it’s been about two weeks since I did Day 18. Why I paused is really not worth a discussion on this blog…but let’s just say, ish happens and if you don’t have a plan in place, ish will can throw you way off course. I am proud to say, however, that despite the ish I’m back on track. “Fall down seven times, stand up eight,” says the Japanese proverb. I’m with it.
Of course, I lost some of my ability to keep up with some of the moves, like the globe jumps. I was surprised to find, however, that I’m just as good at the tricep dips as I was before - not that I was ever really “good” with them but I didn’t get worse! I also still have the balance that I found two weeks ago. I’ll attribute that to my focus on my core in my everyday activities. I’ve found that focusing on keeping my core tight while walking, standing up on the train, washing the dishes, etc has helped my with my balance issues - and I’ve only been focusing on it in this way for a couple of weeks!
An observation (and a confession): I feel at my sexiest immediately after I’m done working out. Something about the sweat… is it just me?
