Lets cheer her on! Lithe Instructor Kalika starts a nine-day mission on Monday! Kalika says:
Why am I doing a nine-day challenge? There are a few reasons, but most of all because I am a burlesque performer and I have a show coming up. During the weeks before a big show, I should be paying attention to my body – Lithing to keep my cardio endurance up and remain strong. I should be putting food into my body that fills me with energy. The reality is rehearsals run late and marathon costume-making sessions take up copious amounts of time. Working out (outside of teaching)? Forget it. Preparing food? Rarely.
Doing this challenge holds me accountable and forces me to make time to take care of my body. I want to feel my best on the day of the show. And yes, I want to look my best when I take my clothes off in front of 350 people. One of the amazing things about burlesque is that it celebrates all bodies, but that doesn't mean I don't want to look a certain way for ME!
