Not hard, just new

 
Nothing is hard. It's just NEW.
 
She was answering a question from a reader regarding Pilates, and if it was hard to do. 
 
And that little phrase Sheryl replied with has been taunting me all weekend long. I always think things are hard. Tough. Rough. But if I change my perspective a little bit, and looked at unknown challenges as just being new, could I push myself harder? I'm always up for new adventures!!!
 
That being said, I'm on a mission to win the Planktastic Plankathon Challenge over on Yum Yucky's blog. I don't stand a chance, but that doesn't mean I'm not going to shoot for it! 
 
Because it's NOT HARD. It's JUST NEW.

Dear Rockstar,
I can't even read "Fox on Socks" while doing ANYthing, let alone a plank. I'm so going to go try and see how long I can plank for.

That was ..... AWESOME!! Mad skills for being able to read Fox box socks and chicks bricks and whatever. AWESOME! and while doing a plank?! Damn girl!! Aww you've inspired me as well... off to try a plank... however, I wont be reading foxy boxy roxy... ;)

Uh, not even going to attempt that. No, Ma'am.

Major Kudos to you, though!

Yum Yucky said...

yep. Your breathing technique has to be pretty awesome to be reading books while planking. You basically earned an extra 320 seconds added onto your planky time for the breathing technique alone. SCORE!

Okay so yesterday I was all, "What's so frickin' hard about leaning on your forearms?" And then I tried it and I screamed "Holy !@#$!" and tipped over. So yeah.

Ps: That is a kick ass picture of you.
