@alywoah has laid down the rules of the March fitness challenge and tagged me. So Here's The Challenge: + Set 1 or 2 realistic goals for yourself this month. + Write a card about it. + Tag some people who you'd like to help support and cheer you on (including me!) + Keep us updated weekly (or more if you like) about your progress, struggles, concerns, questions, stories.
Goal 1: Push harder. For the past two months, I've just been easing back into a workout routine, using minimal weights on the machines. This month, I want to start adding to it, and maybe get over my fear of the weightlifting area.
2. Try not to let my monthly break my stride. I know...ew, gross! But really, this is one thing that really leaves me feeling defeated. It only lasts two days, but those are two impossible days, when it comes to working out. They leave me feeling drained for an even longer period of time, sometimes for up to two weeks. I'd like to improve my recovery time...maybe a little light yoga or walking will help me stay motivated.
sadly I was better than half the cheerleaders at my school. many were too big to do hand springs and cartwheels
*grabs pom poms* go @BeannachOraibh! we believe in you chicka!
@peahyr I had one that lasted two weeks once T_T worst time ever
The second one is NOT gross!! I get that way too. I get my lady time, and BAM I eat like crap and avoid the gym and then I don't go back to my normal habits. There's actually quite a bit of research that says exercise helps with cramps, and my friend always reminds me of that when I don't feel like working out!! I struggle with this too, but having someone remind me of the benefits DURING that time is helpful.
you're welcome!
