We are now nearly at eight weeks of our twelve week Challenge… two thirds of the way through! I cannot believe how fast the time has gone. I also cannot believe how much I have accomplished so far…and I look forward to continuing!
Will took our pictures last week at the seven week mark, but before I post that, I will re-post my “Before” picture. This was me at the very beginning of the Challenge:
Ok…so this is as of last Saturday (Feb. 23):
It’s a start!!!
And speaking of starts, tonight I actually started climbing with my arms! I pulled myself up a couple of times, using my arms only!
I also tried combining moves on the silks in preparation for my someday-routine. I did a roll-up and then went into an inverted stag. I did both moves without falling, and I even held the stag for longer than I have before!
So, my three surprise successes this week are:
1- beginning to climb, even if it is just with my arms!
2- combo moves!
3- getting into a layout five times in a row without falling…and I have the boo-boo to prove it!
Once the twelve weeks is up, I plan to sign up for continuing with silks and Cirque Fit (although I do not know if I will be able to commit to CF twice a week); however, I will be looking to take a Zumba class and swimming at the YMCA (I have to check to see if they have an AARP discount).
The harder I work, the closer I get to that first routine! I have been playing the music video for “Nothing Else Matters” as my motivator!
