After several rounds of tabata, we did a plank challenge to the song Work from Home by Fifth Harmony. We held a plank the whole song, and every time we heard the word “work,” we did shoulder taps.

Cool-down: light stretches led by Boston

COT: Wednesday was the first day of school in FRPS, and my niece’s 1st day of 1st grade! There were tears. A lot of tears. A lot of frustration on both of our parts. At one point that morning she was having difficulty reading a sentence, and said that it was too hard and she wasn’t going to try. I told her that “you can do hard things.” Just because something is difficult, does not mean that you will not be able to do it. So, she went on, and figured out the sentence. Bravo¬†:clap:. Moving on, my day continued to get shittier and shittier. I was stressed out to the max. Right before I showed up for FiA South Coast, I was sitting on my couch, staring, completely stressed. I went into my bathroom closet and pulled out my mother’s reeeeally old, almost empty bottle of perfume she used to wear all the time. (For those of you who don’t know, my mother passed away 8 years ago). I pulled the cap off and smelled it. I instantly broke down and cried. However, the first thought that popped into my mind was, “you can do hard things.” I somewhat started to feel better after that thought.SO, my message to you is that when things get tough, know that you too, can do hard things.¬†
