Day 7: I know I should have figured this out BEFORE starting but I didn’t think it was important but now I realize while it still may not be important, knowing is good. What am I talking about? I’m talking about my body type, which after some discussion with my husband, we have decided it’s a combo leaning on the short torso side. This actually explains a lot. Like why keeping buns tucked is hard for me. Today I also only did part of the t-tapp twist. I only did the twist part with focusing on keeping knees bent and buns tucked. This in turned lead to my back not hurting afterwards. I think I’m on to something. I’m also very thankful for still having the book from the library because as I glanced back through it I see it clearly says that form is more important than reps.
Day 8-I take yesterday’s knowledge on form more important that reps and the fact that I’m a combo body and go to work today. I feel like I did better with form when I made that my focus. Plies are kicking my butt! I can get through the first 8 and then I have to slow down. Still I’m confident that even if I don’t get all the reps in I’ll still see results. As a small side note, I find when I’m doing the form correctly (or at least what I think is correctly) I feel like I’m leaning back really far. Maybe that’s how I’ll know I’m doing it right.
I’m finally able to post on the boards and I find myself spending a lot of time there reading stories and what others are doing. It’s been very encouraging. It’s funny to that there are a lot of women on there who either are homeschooling or have almost or as many children as I do. Both of which are encouraging for some reason. Maybe because know that others who have things in common with me have had success means I too can have success. I’m teetering a bit with my game plan. I had planned on doing a bootcamp with the full workout but after reading on the forums I have discovered I can do a bootcamp with instructional 1 so I might do that but I”m not sure yet. I have a few more days to figure that out. Once again I find myself getting anxious for measurement day in hopes of seeing a net loss this week.
