Day 7 – Diary of a Wimpy Vagina

The Wimpy Vagina

Day 7

Day 1

I’ve decided that every day I’ll be hauling my vagina up. It’s going to be hard; I’m already bored of it after three sessions. But I think it’ll give me a real chance at resurrecting my vagina.

I started Workout Three today. It’s a standing-up work-out. And harder than I wanted it to be. It kind of felt like I was wrestling with a toddler who wanted to get down. But if it hurts it’s working right? (Sigh. Nobody really believes that do they?)

Laying on my back with bent knees, I had to point my toe out, away from my body, and lift one straight leg until my knees were in same vicinity as each other, then hold and slowly lower. This got my heart pumping and my legs were shaking. I hope you are imagining this. 

Sitting, opening the legs up with an elastic band around the knees and then closing them and squeezing the cushion. Those were the instructions, but it was all a bit of a screw up really because I’ve lost my elastic band and tried to make my own. It was floppier than my vagina wall and completely useless. Not to mention that the cushion was so big and competing with my massive hair tie of a band thing that there was very little friction. Completely pointless. 

I realised only too late that I was doing the wrong move for the rest of the video. I finished sitting down.

If you haven’t noticed yet I’m finding the program worthwhile but uninspiring.

Also, no change in peeing yet. As if. My third time doing this. I think my expectations are off.
