I frequently hear myself telling people I’m flexible. Little do they know it’s a big fat lie. Sure, I’m flexible in terms of rolling with daily schedules and such. My flexibility ends with my mind though. My muscles are as tight and rigid as they come. Even with knees bent, I can’t touch my toes. I’m only 35. It’s ridiculous that I’ve let myself get this stiff. I wake up every morning feeling out of sorts and irritable. I can’t help but wonder what my body will feel like at 50 if I don’t start loosening up a bit. I really don’t want to age into a person who can’t move without wincing. This is something I need to address now and get my arms around. Just like it’s foolish to start saving for retirement at 40, it doesn’t make any sense to put off investing in my future health and well being. Physical fitness and flexibility doesn’t get easier with age. Starting now makes complete sense. My goal is to get in touch with my toes by the end of the year.

  1. Have you tried glusonimine chrondotin (sp.?) It seems to work wonders on all kinds of joint and bone ailments.

    Funny you should ask, I just ordered some glusosomine. I’ve heard it helps. We’ll see if I can’t loosen these bones up a bit.
