Ok, it’s confession time:
Back in February this year I signed up for a promotional year-long, 100-class yoga membership with wonderful intentions for it to complement my pole addiction.
At the time that I signed up, I already knew that realistically, I wouldn’t be able to fulfill all 100 classes within 12 months, given that pole takes top priority over everything else. But I did the maths and was okay with how much the promo worked out to if I did about 70 - 80 classes in total, and it made sense to pay less cash for more classes over 12 installments than buying fewer sessions and making a bigger upfront payment instead.
As of November, I’d done a grand total of only 25 sessions. And I could have sworn I’d went for more, but the records don’t lie.
The trouble with long commitments is how easy it is to get fooled into thinking, “I can go next week, next month, the following month…” And before you know it, time’s almost up!
Yea, I’m just a big procrastinating sucker is all.
Well, it’s not too late to salvage the situation! I still have 3 months to go before my membership expires, and I’ll be damned if I can’t at least get to the half-way point by then.
And so it’s on!
I declare this month ‘Yoga December’ and my goal is to do 20 classes by December 31st.
The plan is to do 2 classes at a time, (which I usually do, anyway) 2-3 times a week. So far, I’ve done 2 classes.
It also helps that this week is the end of term, and that I had already decided to save some money by not signing up for any of the mini-term classes during the next 4 weeks, and just resuming classes proper next year.
I know I’ll be tempted with all sorts of better things to do, but I refuse to let my yoga promotion go to (too much) waste! And of course, I’m hoping that going regularly will translate to some increased strength and flexibility on the pole.
Also, I promise not to commit to any form of non-pole activity from now on. Cos if it’s not pole, it’s not happening!
Now I’m off to do another 2 yoga classes.
