Day 2 of the Fat Be Gone Tour was the best and worst day. My abs were still sore from the previous days workouts but I had to push through. I mean, I have 138 more days to go.
It was the best day because on Day 1, I had to do squats. And Candice told me to make sure my legs touch the bench. That is how I would know if I was low enough. The first day, I couldn’t touch the bench. But on Day 2, I touched the bench every time! Every exercise she gave me, I pushed through! I was ELATED!
It was the worst day when I lay down on the mat, Candice stood on my feet, held her hands out and told me to sit up until I could touch them. And I couldn’t! And you may be thinking, “baby steps, Zion. Baby steps.” But, never in my life have I not been able to do a sit up. Never have I not been able to do a crunch. And what makes it so sad; it wasn’t like I couldn’t do it because I was in pain. It wasn’t like my back was hurting or I was in some uncomfortable position. Nope. My body physically could not get off of the floor to touch her fingertips. And even when I was pushing through the other exercises, I had my eyes closed. And when I opened them, tears were falling. Am I crying? Yes. I didn’t even realize it. Hadnt even noticed until I was wiping tears away.
But that’s even more motivation. Day 3 will be better. Day 3, I’ll touch the bench, I wont cry through the motions and I’ll touch the fingers. Fingers crossed for Day 3!
