A couple of weeks, thanks to my client Shelby, I participated in a plank challenge. See, I really wasn’t planning on doing it, okay DIDN’T want to either. But when you have someone nudging you with “Oh you can do this!” or “Come on you got this!”, etc, etc. etc. and your son is standing there so you kind of give in. Can anyone say, “Peer Pressure” or “Mom Pressure”?
Now that I think about it, sounds like things I would say, someone has been in my classes for a while now. LOL.
I know I can hold a plank and by the looks of some of the others they could too. I think I can safely say you could tell that they frequently worked out. See that butt up in the air towards the back of the picture, I swear his arms looked as big as one of my legs!! Plus, his butt should not be up, that is not correct form.
My challenge wasn’t about how long I could hold a plank, if I would win, or would I be the first one down. Now don’t get me wrong those thoughts did cross my mind for a moment. Here was my issue.
I don’t like crowds and I don’t like people watching me!
There I said it. I know it seems silly, but it puts me out of my comfort zone. That was my challenge, knowing that I was going to have eyes on me! Not that I may fail, you don’t fail if you attempt to do something. You fail when you don’t attempt it. Many times it is our mindset or fears that get in the way and you have gather up your courage to conquer them. You become stronger from the experience and will be able to draw from the experience to help you in other situations.
The outcome? Shelby had to sign up too, I set an example for my son, who voiced that he didn’t signed up because he didn’t want to out plank me, and I won the challenge. Whoop Whoop!!
Hi guys!! Welcome to my thoughts and just some health information that I hope you can use! Let me just state this now. I am not a writer, English major, or even a blogger, so there will be mistakes in here.
