I’m so happy and excited today! Not only did I manage to do Royal Dancer pose and hold the pose, but I was FINALLY able to do shoulder stands AND plough all on my own with no spotter!!!! Up until this point, I have ALWAYS needed my husband’s help to lift up into either pose as I didn’t have the abdominal or back strength needed to do it on my own.
Today I didn’t think I would be able to do the move because my husband is at work, but I decided to give it my best shot and then go to bridge until the move was over. I really surprised myself by how much control I now have in the pose. It’s still not perfect and I have trouble keeping my legs straight in the air, but it’s miles away from where I started a mere month ago. :D
I might not see a big visual change in my appearance just yet, but my new found strength, flexibility, and endurance is proof that I’m doing what’s right for my body.
