I am extremely inflexible. I always have been. It's also something I've always wanted to change, but never really did anything about it. Much like weight loss - it was something I always wanted, but never did anything to achieve it. I'd bitch and moan because I was so big and miserably uncomfortable and my clothes didn't fit ... while eating a pizza.
Well, I FINALLY did something about my weight loss. I got off my butt and I applied myself to getting healthy and fit again. I learned how to control my portions, eat properly, and how not to let food control me. I have motivation, determination, and a passion to keep learning about nutrition and making better foodie decisions! I'm feeling better than I have in YEARS!
Except for that whole flexibility thing. Yeah. I'm pretty sure I know a few trees who have better moves than I do!
So again .. I'm finally (about to) do something about it! I'm going to my first yoga class tonight. I'm sure I'll get stuck in some position or another and will have to be carried out in a wheelbarrow .. But it's the first step I'm taking in the right direction. No more complaining about my flexibility .. I'm on my way to fixing that!
It will be hard. I know that. I expect it. I'll probably feel like giving up ten minutes into the session. But I'm not going to let the "old" me interrupt my determination to get fit. I will push myself until I'm crying but I will not give up! And tomorrow when I'm sore as hell and wanting to never go back .. I WILL go back. Just because something is hard doesn't mean I won't do it again. If my babies can learn to walk after falling on their bums over and over and over again .. I can do yoga. And hopefully before I know it, I'll be Upward-Facing-Dog-posing 'till the cows come home!!
Until then .. I've stocked up on epsom salts, Rub A5-35 and Robaxacet. This is going to be fun!! (And painful. Can't forget the pain.)
