Challenge day 17 came with more energy than day 16 🙌🏼
I didn’t have to set an alarm. Sleeping in really is nice 😊 I woke up and stretched slow. I took a walk outside with my dog and listened to the sounds of 6:30 am. I came in to get a little computer work done and stretch some more. Calm. Super calm.
I didn’t pay attention to who my 9:30 am class was with until just before Ashley picked me up. I got pretty excited when I seen it was with Rachelle ☺️ Not even nervous, but excited!
Thursday 9:30 am class with Rachelle was exactly what I needed! There’s just enough “do the things” in her voice to help me keep doing the things 💥💪🏼💥 She took her time to modify movements when I was struggling, increased the weight when I wasn’t moving properly and she broke down the movements into things I can comprehend. “Shut the car door with your ass,” I get that 👍🏼🍑😆
Thank you so much, Rachelle, for your energy and for speaking my language ☺️
Today’s highlights include using bands around my ankles (that’s a first), jumping jacks using battleropes (another first, and I couldn’t physically stop laughing at the thought of what I looked like), jumping rope outside (I love it out there), sitting on a box and lifting a weight with my legs (new for me) and ummm, I kinda upped my burpee game… I tried going all the way down after awhile. Like, big girl on the floor and then push up to jump back up. Again, probably a ridiculous sight, but I pushed hard 💪🏼🔥😳
Today’s post-workout selfie would have been very, very sweaty. But I didn’t take one 🤷🏻♀️
Today was fantastic and I’m totally looking forward to 5:15 am in Highland tomorrow 🙌🏼 Word is that all my favorite people will be there 💛 I can’t wait!
