Howdy my shiny, happy people! ❤ 🙂
Last week was the first week of April and I felt like shaking things up, so I gave myself the task of doing a weekly challenge for the whole month. Read about it here.
This post will be a progress update + the unveiling of the next challenge 🙂 Let’s get to it!
Challenge #1: improve my wheel pose
For the record, I can’t really do a wheel pose. I can do the second one in this picture and that’s about it. But for someone who’s only done basic YouTube yoga at home, I was pleasantly surprised when I first found out I could even lift myself off the mat like that 😀 I was quite impressed and quickly fell infatuated with the pose ❤ 😀
Fast forward to last week when I picked it as my first challenge – and this is how I’ve done thus far:
Monday and Tuesday
Okay so Monday and Tuesday I lost internet (and phone and cable TV) connection so it was like … “Helloooo Universe! I’ve just declared a challenge here!! Could you be more supportive?!!” XD XD
I was finally able to get to it with this video:
As usual, I was able to heave myself off the floor with relative ease and I tried to stay in the pose for as long as I could trying to correct my form as I made a mental review of how my body parts were positioned.
There was obviously a lot of room for improvement. One problem that immediately came up was that my wrists could only hold the pose for so long before becoming sore. I could try again for a second time, but a third? My wrists would be screaming bloody murder!
I was feeling really sore and stiff from my strength training on previous days and backbending was the furthest thing on my mind XD
I was feeling under the weather for some reason so I didn’t push it.
Saturday & Sunday
Because I don’t have much to show for it (insert cheeky grin here) I am continuing this challenge for a second week.
But the show must go on and therefor I have taken on a second weekly challenge – as declared – which will be …. dan-dan-daaaaaaan! …

Finish an online course about working from home 🙂

So that’s me for today and I do hope you check back next Monday for more details and updates on not one, but TWO weekly challenges! 😀 😀
Here’s to a strong, positive week, warriors ❤ ❤
