Apparently when I say “flexibility” my readers minds go straight to the gutter! I am blaming Jaime for starting this outbreak of dirtiness. Haha, just kidding!
So my next goal is not to hop on the pole for dollar bills(although I am going to take an introductory class pretty soon with a girlfriend of mine). My next goal is to gain back my flexibility in general and maybe be able to do the splits again. *Image courtesy of theallgoodlife.blogspot.com
Ever since I stopped dancing and taken up other fitness activities, mainly running, I have lost a ton of my flexibility and it is killing me! I hate not being able to touch my toes without cringing. And don’t even get me started on my splits! Ugh. Especially with my bad hip I have been terrified of trying to do them again.
So here’s the plan: I am giving myself 3 months to get somewhat flexible again. I know that I am not going to be folding into a pretzel in that amount of time, but I think it’s just enough to see some improvement! Here’s what I will be doing to get towards my goal:
- Stretch every morning and night.
- Go to yoga more often.
- Practice splits everyday.
I know it doesn’t sound like much, but I think that with stretching everyday, I will become more and more bendy like I used to be.
Fun fact Friday: Do you know what your stripper name would be?(since we’re on that subject) Just combine your first pet’s name with the street you grew up on. Mine is Lady Sunfield, I think I would be a high class striper 😉
Comment what yours would be! Happy Friday everyone!
