A Different Sort of TARDIS

(Smaller On The Inside)

backonpointe:

May includes a special calendar for people participating in the Pull-Up Challenge to keep you from overtraining!

The directions are simple: find the current date on the calendar, see what workout(s) it asks for, and pick one from each section listed for that date.

For example, if today it says “Arms” and “General,” I’d find an arm workout and a general workout to do today. (The Endurance Calendar also has “stretch” as a category; I do not have any stretching routines, but simply take about ten minutes to stretch out and relax when stretching is called for, or try a yoga video online.)

If you’d like to write about your experiences during the month or see how others are doing, please use the tag “BoP: May”. By all using this tag, we can see what others are doing during the month and send others encouragement along the way. Let’s all support each other on our journeys! (If you’re not on Tumblr but still use these calendars, feel free to update us on the Back On Pointe Facebook Page or the Back On Pointe Fitocracy Group!)

During the month, remember that you should take as many rest days as you need, modify any workouts that you cannot do, stay hydrated, get more low-intensity cardio, and eat well.

Have fun!

p.s. Any of the calendars can be modified. If you are training for a half-marathon, feel free to count that as your cardio on cardio days. If you’re sore in the arms from helping a friend move, substitute a butt workout instead. It’s all about you!

Picture yourself when you were five. In fact, dig out a photo of little you at that time and tape it to your mirror. How would you treat her, love her, feed her? How would you nurture her if you were the mother of little you? I bet you would protect her fiercely while giving her space to spread her itty-bitty wings. She’d get naps, healthy food, imagination time, and adventures into the wild. If playground bullies hurt her feelings, you’d hug her tears away and give her perspective. When tantrums or meltdowns turned her into a poltergeist, you’d demand a loving time-out in the naughty chair. From this day forward I want you to extend that same compassion to your adult self.

DAY 43!Sorry I havent written in awhile, life has been busy, I’m juice crazy!Okay, okay, okay. I know you are all wondering how much weight I have lost….37 pounds! Pretty crazy, right? I’m really noticing a difference in the mirror and I like it! And my brain feels like its working clearly. I’ve almost forgotten what I felt like before juice. Seriously, juicing has changed my life for the better forever.SO, I wanted to talk you about something, that something is toots. Yes, tooting, you heard me right. Alright, so I used to be a big freakin gas bubble. Seriously, at any given moment I felt like I was going to let one rip. But ever since I started juicing that ever gas feeling has gone away. I think I have farted like once a week since juicing begun. Also, I used to always feel bloated and pain in my stomach. Almost everyday I would get knots and awful throbbing pain in my abdomen. Nothing like this has happened since juice. This is huge. Not farting and not being in pain. HELLO, that is amazing.I tried to post an up to date before and after picture. I wish now that I had taken a proper before picture because all mine SUCK. Sorry.Thats all for now, I’ll update again soon. Pinkie promise.

An inspiring cutie-pie! You look great, lady! 
Also, I second the toot-data. When I’ve been juicing, my guts calm down considerably, and it’s one of my favorite changes, cause I’m not constantly worried about rippin’ one.
