Today’s fresh fitness hell was 8 minutes of satisfying joint opening stretches (similar to what we did in my Tai Chi class, actually), 2 minutes of plank pose with creative abdominal hell added on, and then 10 minutes of standing at a wall doing backward leg lifts. “enjoy your tight round butt and waist”, she said, as she closed the video. I’ll try, when I figure out how to make my hamstrings work again.
Honestly, though, this is hard, but it’s doable. 20 minutes every day with one day off per week. I’m breathing hard, a little sweaty, and have muscles trembling at the edge of fatigue at the end of each bit. I can DO this. And I’m glad that I am.
