wow you know what i just realised? (and lol, dont ask me how ive JUST realised this lol… seriously…it sometimes takes me a while to catch up haha)
yes, im a healthy weight and BMI now (yay for me), and i have good stats, and im fitter and slimmer and healthier than ive ever been before, oh, and stronger (physically at least lol)
but flexible? haha, yeah right!! i am totally not at all flexible. im stiff as a board some days, and hey, that cant be good right?
so i know yoga is good for that, and of course just simple stretching (which, i still hate to admit, im really not including in my workouts - yes, when im doing a jillian workout or something like that, i follow the stretches she tells you to do at the end, but i dont ever seem to do them when im just working out on my own).
i have to get a grip and REALLY focus my mind on the whole nine yards of kicking myself PROPERLY into touch. ive got like 50% of it pretty much down, and will keep it down for life, but yeah, i am still really lacking in other areas.
i could out-cycle people half my age, i could arm wrestle quite a few guys out there and put up a decent fight, i could do 100 squats before i really…..could…not….do…..one……..more (it would half kill me though haha), but could i sit cross legged for ten minutes without it hurting, or lift my dumbbells straight up over my head? no i couldnt. ok, the dumbbell thing really is greatly effected by my arm injury, but still, no i couldnt do it.
whats pilates all about? is that to do with flexibility? i could maybe try and incorporate some of that. i really need to find a yoga or pilates class that i can go to every week. my stupid stupid job gets in the way, but even if i could only go every other week, thats better than never going at all right?
ok, im going to find a local yoga class and sign up for it. ive made my decision, and thats it………its already ticked in my head now, i just have to tick it with my body.
