Me: “Mom, I completed the 30-day challenge! Awesome, huh?”
Mum: “Cool. What did you get?”
Me: “Uh...pride. Oh, and some wicked obliques.”
Mum: “Great, keep doing it then.”
Time to reflect on it all and I’m not going to lie...I feel hugely dehydrated, and I feel like I’ve been on the verge of getting sick, but I also feel like the yoga has been preventing me from getting sick.
My acne got better...then it got worse...then it got better.
I ate a lot of chocolate.
I got super ripped abs ( I call them my “chocolate abs”.)
I am proud of crossing the finish line.
So often in life I am impatient; I wanted the 30-day challenge to be over at the end of Day 5. I also hate practicing my music lessons, I just want to have a great voice. But things don't necessarily happen instantly.
There’s a very real reward in completing a challenge like this. Maybe it’s the ‘delayed gratification‘ of actually having to wait 30 days, or that I dragged my ass out of bed EVERY DAY even when I really really didn’t want to go. Either way, I feel stronger mentally and physically, and yes, I’m excited for the next one to begin.
Bring it on. Bring ALL the challenges on. I did 30 days of hot yoga; I can take whatever you got next.
