PRE-S.: The release of the new project will be in the second week of December, so, make sure you’re in the list ( http://gumroad.com/katherine ) to be a part of the new project since the beginning!
We need to catch up right away because October was quick but interesting to happen, too.
October led me to take better decisions to avoid the feelings I had in my last post. I’m getting up at 5:00am to practice some pop pilates (that’s one of the things I wanted to tell you!) and then I tried really hard to advance in everything I have in my hands right now.
You don’t really know if the changes you make are really having any effect until some time has happened so, I’m hoping these changes work. Next round of tests is coming up and it’s a really big wave approaching. Tests are due on Thursday, Saturday and Tuesday (a new test every two days, WHAT!?).
I want to officially introduce you to my baby parakeet Xandé. It’s not one of his best pictures because he’s all wet after taking a shower with me but he looks so cute like a feathered little ball.
One of the most cute things he does is stand in one leg and make an ok sign with the other leg while stretching one of his wings, like if he knew he’s practicing yoga, so cute! ❤
Talking about yoga, if you ever discouraged yourself from practicing yoga for not knowing a lot of poses, STAHP RIGHT NOW!
Yoga has like only 10 basic positions and then, all the gorgeous photos you see online are variations of the 10 basic poses.
What does that mean? Well, it means you don’t need to “learn” a lot of poses, with just knowing the basics and change a little bit of the details here and there because it feels better here than there, it’s enough to practice yoga.
Most of the variations are “inversion” and “revolved” and then the positions your hands take like in prayer, extension or balance.
Inversion means you’ll do it heads down and heart up (it doesn’t mean necessarily your legs had to be in the air, inversion is when your heart is above your head, so be cautious!)
And revolved means there are some twist that leds to a magnificent feeling in any part of your body, God, the revolved poses are my favorite! ❤
Seriously, breathing and stretching help A LOT with knee injuries (like, really helpful) but also, the body needs a little extra effort sometimes. That’s when Pop Pilates appears.
I’m barely in day 3 here, but you can really feel it in the legs, hahahah!
Anyway, the last but not least of the more amazing things that happened in October is…
I LEARNED HOW TO SWIM! ❤
The promise to learn to swim was made on 2008 (when I was 18) and finally came the day when it was accomplished!
Can’t wait to tell you all about learning how to swim and break mental barriers of trying new things when you’re not that young but I won’t do it today (because a semester is yelling me to save it from drowning, haha, get it?) but I sure will soon, so stay tuned!
What I will share today for sure is the milestones that made me happy this October!
More like milestone, in singular, but it doesn’t matter the quantity because it made me very happy and you’re about to see why! ❤
