emoticon Keeping your Back strong is paramount to your overall health. Today's "Dare to do it Now" is geared to helping make and keeping your "Back" strong. While this thread is to do it NOW, I would strongly recommend you incorporate back ST on a regular basis!

So...try one of the following!

1. Start out lying on your back with both knees bent and your feet flat. This is the basic position for all abdominal work and the elementary back stretches. Raise one foot off the floor, and bring your knee to your chest. Gently pull your knee toward you with your hands, and hold it for a few seconds. Slowly release your knee and return your foot to the floor. Do the other leg. You can go back and forth doing this simple stretch two or three times, holding your knee for up to thirty seconds.

2. Start in the same position as before, but hold your arms straight out to the side with your palms facing up. Keeping your knees bent and your feet together, let both knees drop to the floor on the same side while you let your head roll to the opposite side. Don't try to adjust your legs to make one rest perfectly on top of the other -- let them fall where they may. Just breathe and try to relax for up to thirty seconds. Roll your legs and head back to the center, and right on through to the opposite sides. You can also do this two or three times on each side.

3. Go back to the starting position. Place your arms alongside your body with palms facing down. Try pressing the small of your back flat against the mat as you contract your stomach muscles while exhaling. Hold that for one or two seconds, relax and inhale. Repeat this ten or fifteen times and repeat the first two stretches afterward.

I Miss My Mom - I'll love you forever mama

I want to be the kind of woman that when my feet hits the floor each morning, the devil says, "Oh crap, she's up!"

Sometimes we need to stop analyzing the past...stop planning the future...stop trying to figure out precisely how we feel...stop deciding with our mind what we want our heart to feel..sometimes we just have to go with..."Whatever happens, happens"

emoticon Let's work off some stress!!!

1) Shrug those shoulders - first roll them forward and then roll them back - do for 1 minute.

2) Now that you are loose; work off some of the accumulated stress! Strike a boxers pose and start dancin' those feet and punching with those hands. Put some real effort into it; fight your way to health and happiness!!!

~Phil. 4:13

"If thou failest, look to Him to uphold thee; if thou stumblest, hold swift His hand to help thee; if thou fallest, lie not hopelessly there, but look to Him to raise thee; if, by His grace, thou doest well, look to Him in thanksgiving, that He has helped thee, and pray that thou mayest do better."

Can you do the following challenge right this moment after reading this post? The purpose of this challenge is to boost your morale and to help deal with/or get rid of the habit of procastination.

Do 10 wall push-ups NOW!!! I did mine! Post if you got it done and give yourself kuddos for not putting off until later what you can do now.

Check back daily for the new "DARE TO DO IT NOW" challenge. Hugs, Elle
