Well Monday-Wednesday I had excuses. Thursday came along and I had a choice. Fail myself or try something crazy (for me). Normally I do yoga on Thursdays but felt like going to the gym. I put in a half hour on the treadmill and a half hour resistance training on major muscle groups. Good start! Now the crazy part - I grabbed a protein shake and a half hour rest then did my yoga class! I sweated like a pig, I was shaking for the tree pose and 2/3 of the way through wondered when we got to the part where we get to just lie on the mat. Afterwards, I glowed. In fact I'm still glowing.
Succeeding just for the sake of keeping my own word and making a change feels awesome. Don't be afraid to challenge yourself and hold yourself to it!
