From the Jungle to the Sea, be who you be!
Jackelyn came to visit last week and we captured a fun workout routine for you! I must warn you however – even though we are laughing through most of the moves, I was dying. I’ll tell you which one is secretly a killer…
That monkey pushup.
When I got up, my inner thighs were SPAZZING!!!! It was ridiculous! It’s the positioning of the feet. Because they are so wide apart, it really challenges your lower body. I was not expecting to have trouble walking after that exercise but OMG I so felt it. You need to do the monkey pushup STAT!
You know what else you need to do stat? Today’s homework. If you printed the calendar, you will see that for today’s body rest, I want you to do a mood boost. Have a read:
I remember once in 8th grade, Ms. Purcell had us do a really cool project. There were 30 students in the class and each student had their name on a blank sheet of paper. She passed out the sheets so that everyone had a paper, but not their own. She said, “You have 1 minute to write down as many nice things as you can about this person. Go.” We then passed the sheets around until everyone’s blank page, become a full one. Ms. Purcell then took the sheets home, typed it up, and hung them on the wall the next day for everyone to see. All of my classmates rushed to the wall to see what people had said about them and I remember seeing lots of smiles and hearing laughs. It was such a feel-good exercise…it was a great reminder that we are all amazing individuals…and that yes, we do matter.
The paper is probably in my 8th grade year book which is at my parent’s house, so I can’t show you. But maybe I will call my mom later and ask her to find it! That would be cool to see huh? See if I am the same person or if I have evolved. I have a feeling though that it probably said something along the lines of “Cassey is a hardworker. She is a perfectionist. She is a good artist.” Hahaha…I spent wayyyyyy too much time on school projects back then. I made simple homework into pieces of art that really used up a lot of my time and didn’t make that much of a difference in my grades. I think this is when my sleeping sched started getting messed up. Yeah…this problem has been around for a while!!!
Because we all don’t know each other (yet), I want you to basically do this task for yourself. Be honest, but don’t be so humble that you won’t write things that may sound egotistical! If you’re a talented writer, say it! If you think you have really nice legs, say it! Think you should be on American Idol? Say it!! This month, when you look at this sheet of paper, I want you to smile and remind yourself of how AMAZING you really are. And keep working to be the best version of you every day.
Don’t forget to tweet, insta, or facebook me your completed homework! I wanna see so bad!
Have a wonderful rest of your weekend! I love hearing from you so keep talking to me!
