DAY SEVEN: "Just Get To The (Hot) Room."

Author: Heather Molina /

Well folks... We're seven days into the challenge. One whole week. Which means we only have 94 days left.

ONLY 94 DAYS!!!!

For me, this first week has flown by quickly. And whenever I do a challenge, as soon as I hit day seven, my success rate for finishing the challenge skyrockets. Perhaps it is a mental thing, but if I can get through the first seven days, I tell myself I can get through all types of days during the week.

Busy and long work days...
Days where I have too many thoughts in my head and can't quiet down...
Days where I got no sleep the night before...
Days where I was not prepared for class and inadequately hydrated...
Days where I have to haul ass from the subway to get to class on time, because the subway system had severe delays...
Days where I didn't shave my legs, and find the thought of having to squeeze my legs around each other in Eagle pose really creepy...

Yes. All of the above would normally be excuses for me to skip class. But in these first seven days, I've told myself, "Just get to the room. That is all you have to do. Get to the room. Your body will know where to take it from there for today."


And you know what? It has worked. No, I'm not surprised... As I have successfully completed challenges in the past using this method. But instead of only having to tell myself that for 23 more days (30-day challenge), I have to keep telling myself that for another 94 days. And it will continue to work.

Hope the first week has been a rewarding challenge for you too!

Cat, once you prove to yourself that you can do 30 in a row... Doing 45 seems like the next logical. Then you go to 60. Then shoot that up to 90. Then once you hit 90, you figure, "What's another 11 days?"

SO TRUE!! Even now, a week in a row, I feel like..Oh, what's another 3 weeks;) Thanks for the inspiration!

"Just get to the hot room." That will be my mantra when I just don't feel like going and my mind will come up with a million excuses.
