Stretching....what a surprise.

Saturday, March 09, 2013

When I read that the challenge was to stretch for 10 minutes, I kinda went ugh. Eventually today I went ahead and first tried to touch my toes. Hah. Eventually I was a little closer, so stretching did help. Then I remembered that one of the exercise videos was having you kneel on the floor then sit back on your legs, and I couldn't do it any more. So I tried that. Eventually I got where I almost could do it. Both of these things "I couldn't do" surprised me. I have gotten old haven't I!!!
I did a few extra stretches with my arms and back, but am actually looking forward to trying again tomorrow. And that was quite a surprise.

    Isn't so true as you age that old adage, "Move it or lose it!" Glad you are moving it kiddo and going for the toes too! emoticon

    I find that my stomach get's in the way of a lot of stretches and the exercise on the fitness videos, but every month I try it gets a bit easier. Good luck with your efforts this week. emoticon emoticon

    emoticon ! I was told two days ago
by my doctor, that I need to do stretches
to help with chronic pain. I have one of
Leslie Sansone's DVD's that I used to
work out, doing lots of stretching. I really
liked it, after I did it for a few weeks. Like
you, I know that it will be hard for me now.

I know that we can get our bodies in
shape so that we can reach those toes. emoticon
