I have precisely 47 days to get beach body ready.
Yesterday, my boyfriend, Tom and I booked a holiday to Zante for my 25th birthday. And I can not wait. It will be amazing. I’ve never been to Greece before, and I love to visit new places.
The only problem is I feel really uncomfortable in my own skin at the moment. I know I don’t need to lose any weight. But I would love to tone up.
So I figured yoga might be a good way to go.
Plus my counselor has been bugging me for weeks to give it a go when I get anxious. So, for lack of a better term, two birds one stone, right?
I find it super difficult to become motivated to do just about anything these days. Unless I set myself a challenge. I do not like to fail, and I do not like to let myself down. Which is were the 31 day challenge comes from, hopefully it will give the kick up the backside I need, and I will be flexible and toned in just one months time. Hopefully…
This won’t be the first time I have done yoga, I have done it before, and I still do occasionally, so I won’t be a total beginner. But I don’t do it as much as I would like too. Which doesn’t make sense because I always feel amazing afterwards. So loose and calm and happy. Plus I love the dull ache it leaves in certain parts of my body – I’m extremely inflexible so yoga is a struggle. I plan on holding onto them feelings afterward, and hope it pushes me to carry on the next day, and the next day, etc.
I also hope it will be beneficial to my mental health before I go on holiday, because I can be such a pain in the arse for my boyfriend when I become insecure, closed off and trapped in my own head. I can’t bare to be in my own company for more than 2 minutes when I’m like that, so I wouldn’t expect him too for a whole week.
I will check in every so many days with photos and progress.
Wish me luck.
Peace and Love, Sian
