SERiously, I was about to kick my own ass! Two days off TRX – and of course the whole detox programme – and on my return today I had about as much power as a comatose flea!!
When I got to the gym, Om informed me that we’d have to take it easy today as Rebecca, who’s doing a weeks’ detox, had been sick the night before so we wouldn’t be doing anything too hardcore and was that alright with me? It turns out Rebecca was the hardcore one and I looked like I’d only just started on the ropes :s
Things that had been easy on Friday were now absolutely killing my arms and my body – which you have to hold stiff as a board as you do all the exercises – had a mind of its own and looked more like it was doing an interpretation of a BANANA rather than a sculpted, honed and toned assembly of kick-ass limbs. Magnificent I most definitely was NOT.
It’s enough to make a girl return to a full on detox quite frankly. I was getting really annoyed with myself – I’ve been so proud of how well I’ve been doing with TRX and today I looked like a floppy mess. Maybe it’s the ‘excess’ of the weekend, I don’t know – although Om came over the road after the session had ended to inform me that it may well have something to do with me smoking. So now it looks like stopping the fags may very well be on the agenda… le sigh. I’ll be having a look at these pills you can get from the Pharmacy to stop you smoking tomorrow – my friend T says they’re actually anti-depressants which have the side effect of not making you smoke. Apparently as I’m not depressed they won’t affect that part of me which is marvellous as I don’t really want anything messing with my head but a) I do need to quit after WAAAAY too many years and b) I am not looking like a wimp for a white tube of burning leaves.
I’ve decided to do TRX every day now in the week to make sure I keep on top of things, if I am going to indulge every now and then (mainly i.e. beer) then I don’t want that to ruin all the hard work I’ve put in over the past month. But I don’t want to deny myself things I like either, so it’s a case of put the work in and I can treat myself.
Good grief – what a change of headspace that statement is!!
Hopefully tomorrow I’ll be slightly more than competent on the ropes and this was just a momentary blip
