They say in Cross fit that this is your comfort zone…
And this is where they want you….
Well folks, I achieved that without crossfit. It’s called Bodyflow. It is a combination of Yoga and pilates. I have never taken yoga. I have always been quite skeptical to be honest, but I did it. And the funny thing is I did it with the Fiance :) .
If you could imagine ‘graceful’ me on one leg with my opposite leg behind me and my arms out like I’m performing an Olympic swam dive.. yea your welcome for that laugh! And laugh I did… The whole time. It was great! I never thought trying to get into a “breathing in” as you touch your toes and “exhale” as you go to do downward dog and then to warrior 2. CRAZY I tell you! The thing is it was tough! I felt good but not in the usual “yea I’m gonna hurt tomorrow” pain. I plan on going back Tuesday and Thursday next week.
Something else that is great… I’m down 4lbs! WOOT WOOT! This week I’ll be at the gym each day. Right now the forecast is… Monday lift; Tuesday Bodyflow; Wednesday Zumba; Thursday body flow and Friday is as surprise (because I’m not sure yet!).
It is for certain that getting outta ya box can be uncomfortable. Lately that is all I’ve been doing, is things that are out of my comfort zone, but it’s there that I’m finding the most rewards.
What are you doing that is outta yo box?
