I can't believe I only have 4 classes to go in 4 days to finish the challenge!!!! Time went by so so fast and it's been such a crazy 2 months. Since my post last Monday, a ton has happened and I'm still on cloud 9. I have been on top of my practice and made up my missed classes, but the huge new was that I got my results back on my biopsy last Thursday and it was good news =) My misery of not knowing for almost a month has officially ended and I'm so so happy to get a clean bill of health. The good news couldn't come at a better time to motivate me to finish the challenge strong =)
Class 48 & 49: 6:30 & 8:15pm w/Valerie, Class 50: 6:30pm w/Jeff, Class 51: 4:30pm w/Erin, Class 52: 6:30am w/Brook, Class 53: 8am w/Val, Class 54 & 55: 6:30 & 8:15pm w/Nafisa, & Class 56: 6:30pm w/Valerie
I know it's a bit late to change my tracking format since there are only 4 days left to this challenge, but I was seriously getting annoyed that my day count is 1 day behind =X Anyhow, there were a lot of horrible classes within the listed classes and I'm finally starting to steer back to some decent practice. My body is beyond fatigued like most of the other challengers and my back bends are progressively getting worst to being nonexistent. One would think my body would be pretty loose by now, but it's the exact opposite. It's tighter than ever before and those 2 doubles sure didn't help. I am looking forward to giving my body a day to rest and not have to think about a double for the missed class. I would love to take a longer break, but I'm really afraid to regress back to my inconsistent practice prior to the challenge so I am making a commitment to myself to not take more than a day or 2 off consecutively. Plus, my practice has been pretty strong and I am going pretty deep in a few postures so I would hate to lose the momentum now =P
As suggested by Cynthia, fellow challenger, I should still keep a small calendar and give myself a star for each class completed. This will keep the motivation going and who doesn't like seeing a calendar full of stars!
OMG, I just noticed that I didn't end my last few posts with my usual namaste!!! My mind was definitely not all there =P Well, looks like the next post or 2 will be the last regarding this year's challenge so until then....NAMASTE <3
