Day 2 – Diary of a Wimpy Vagina

The Wimpy Vagina

Day Two

(Go back to Day One if you haven’t read it)

After my first session, that day and night, it felt like I had mild-medium period cramps. I had to use a heat pack, which helped. That means it was working!

So, to celebrate, I started today’s session by trying to cheat. Each workout has the initial ‘learn the how and why of each move’ video and then a ‘get straight to the moves’ video. I was immediately drawn into the ‘get straight to it’ video and had to turn back.

Today I did the Clam, which is a side-laying, heels together/knees apart bum-clench – that’s right. Imagine it right now. We did other things too. So much coordination is needed. And just when you feel like your pelvic basket (of fruit? nuts? dirty washing?) is falling out of position, she tells you to make sure you’re breathing. What. A. Bitch.

This is honestly so boring, but I know it’s good for me and my cramps the first day have been an inspiration to me and should also inspire you, no matter your challenge. Cramps after one session!

The exercises today are aimed at my overflowing pelvic basket and as I do them, I feel fatigue in my butt, uterus, lower back and side-butt. (You know. Your side-butt.) Today I’m feeling hopeful. And on the lookout for changes because I’m impatient.

Until next time.
