Do you ever wake up and start freaking out about your life??? About your goals dreams and aspirations???
Today was one of those days.
I woke up all kinds of happy, ready to take on the world. My boyfriend has been in a runt about our current situation. We are both building our careers, so we aren’t where we would like to be, but everyday I’m working towards my goals of becoming a published author, public speaker, wellness coach and an inspiring life coach & personal trainer. I’ve been building my business, building my fan bases, working on my book proposal, and working-out like I’m crazy, so I can be in the best shape of my life when all these wonderful things happen. I usually don’t get discouraged, I’m usually very inspired, but today my boyfriend’s first words to me were… we have to do better. I think he is talking about his self, he’s not a self-starter like I am, but he’s also not wrong. We have to do better; I have to do better.
I have started a small marketing campaign to promote my blog and myself as a personal trainer and a life coach, but I need more, I have to get my message and my story out to the public.
I think that it’s time to submit my story to a few publications. My before and after pictures, and my story is compelling enough to be published in magazines, local and national. To accomplish all of my goals I have to be in the public eye, in my community working, and giving back. I don’t know. My faith isn’t shaken but I am a little freaked out. I hope I can become the woman I have been striving to be. But if I fail I know I gave it all I had.
Thanks for letting me vent
Other then my mid-life crisis over here, I’m doing well. Its my Mothers Birthday, I’m taking her to get a Thai Message, and to lunch. I’m excited to see her, she’s pretty cute.
Have you ever wanted to be able to do the splits?? I know I have. I have always wanted to do them, but never been successful. I have also wondered what stretches would get me closer. I can touch my toes, and I’m pretty flexible, but you need flexible hamstrings, and hips. Here are a few stretches that help you open up your hips to stretch out your hamstrings, so that one day soon you can do the splits.
9 Stretches that will make you split
- Stretches both hamstrings at the same time, while increasing flexibility in your lower back. Also stretches chest and shoulders
Head to Knee
- Stretches one hamstring at a time. As well as your lower back, and helps to open your hips.
- Stretches both hamstrings and lower back. Focuses on hamstrings closer to your butt.
Kneeling Hip flexor Stretch against a wall
- Stretches hips and hip flexors
Hip Flexor Stretch
- Deep hip flexor stretch
- Makes you use your upper body strength to help your lefts move into splits position
- Vertical spilt, a good warm up to horizontal splits, it targets standing leg hamstrings and hips
Standing hand to Toe

- Stretching with a bock is a good to get you ready for the real thing
