Lately I’ve been trying to step up and challenge myself. 2 weeks ago my trainer, Jamie, put my workout partner and I through the hell that is Tabada class. It was a class I’ve been scared of for like, FOREVER– but once I took it, it wasn’t so scary. Well, yes, actually, it was, but I CONQUERED it!
Today I went to a Core Values class. 45 agonizingly LONG, HARD BUTT kicking minutes that worked me so hard that I was trembling and my chin wobbled. I had to stop for a few brakes, but I DID IT! Not only did I do it, but I did a 1 1/2 minute PLANK! It was hard, I thought I might throw up or pass out or something, but I did it! I’m even more proud because just a few short months ago I wasn’t able to do a 20 second plank. Why was I able to do it now?
Because I challenge myself. I push myself in ways I never thought I could. Planks? Spin? 5k? A yea ago. heck, 6 months ago, I would have NEVER thought I’d be doing what I am doing now.
I found that I am way stronger than I ever thought I was – I just had to believe in myself.
