If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a hundred times (I don’t really understand that saying, but whatevz) – I’M BAD AT CONSISTENTLY BLOGGING. So let’s just skip over the fact that I haven’t documented my progress in a few weeks.
I continue to stretch about three times each week, and I’ve tried a couple different YouTube videos, which you can view for yourself below. I like the videos in that they are short and fit nicely into my
attention span time frame, but sometimes I have no idea what they are saying and get really frustrated by my (lack of) flexibility.
I think I’m making progress, albeit slow progress. If anything, I hope this self-made challenge helps me become more flexible in my hips. My current hip flexibility is very limited, or at least it was at the beginning of this challenge. It’s improved, but I notice that it quickly goes back down if I don’t stay consistent with my stretching.
My goal is to spend more time on my stretching and try to actually enjoy it. At this point, I try to get through it as quickly as possible, which isn’t going to be very effective in the long run. I’m going to keep looking for YouTube tutorials, and be patient with myself. The cooler weather should help in that I’ll be trapped inside
watching American Horror Story thoroughly stretching.
Side note: this is the first season of AHS that I’ve watched in a few years and DAMN that show is still crazy. This season almost has a comedic edge to it? Or a very keen sense of sarcasm/way of looking at the current world. I don’t know how to describe it, but it makes me laugh but is also scary as eff. Watch it; bonus points if you stretch while watching.
In conclusion, I hope I’m back next week ;-)WINK.
