You Can Do Anything For 10 Seconds!!

20 May


A couple of years ago I bought a 30 days for 30 dollars trial at a Bikram studio near my office (at that time). I actually enjoyed it and kept planning to go back. Fast forward (or…ya know, slowly wait out) that next couple of years when I saw a sign on Main Street in my town that there was an actual Bikram studio opening up RIGHT HERE! So I got another 30 days for 30 dollars package last summer and went quite a few times. And wanted to continue since it IS so convenient and it helps with my running – I fully credit my quick recovery from this year’s Goofy Challenge at Walt Disney World with the Bikram I’ve been doing.

I think what I enjoy so much is that it *is* the same thing every time. No thinking required. It’s also a perfect place to practice “Progress Not Perfection” — and I’m good at that!! While the postures and the dialog is the same every time, no two classes are the same. And since I’m doing the same poses every time, I can see when I make progress and when maybe I have a bad day..

There’s definitely something about walking into the hot room for the first time that is overwhelming…there is a very distinct smell to the room. It’s not completely unpleasant, but it’s not roses baby!! And it’s not just a hot room. It’s a hot and humid room! Parts of you sweat that you didn’t even think HAD sweat glands!! Ears? You betcha!! Bottoms of your feet? Oh yeah! And, ladies, there is nothing “glistening” or “glowing” about what you’re doing — You are SWEATING!!! And, honestly, I love it!!

Well, the last few weeks I’ve been very haphazard about doing any kind of exercising and starting a new job has given me a little push to start up again. That, and I have a half marathon coming up in a couple of months and I’d REALLY like to work on getting my time better – it was a really slow year last year, and quite discouraging.  So tonight I headed back to the hot room and it does indeed feel good!

Over the next couple of weeks I plan to do a little revamping of things around here – back to Bikram, out running more and for super excitement, I – along with a few of my fellow Sweat Pink Ambassadors, will be doing a Whole30 Challenge.  We thought it could supply some fun posts to see how I handle starting the challenge while on vacation…yeah…we may just see how many ways I can say “Oops….that beer fell into my cup”!  But more on that later!

As for doing anything for 10 Seconds? Yeah…this happened tonight  —
