Okay, so I know all of you guys, myself included, need to stretch out your hamstrings. I also know that most of you have pretty much zero flexibility in them.😂
So here's a pretty easy stretch to get started on. 👌🏻
Basically, you want both hip bones pointing forward here. I added pics of what "good" and "bad" form look like with this.
Also, I decided to share both sides to show that you're def gonna have a good side and a bad side. My left hamstrings are so much tighter, it's ridiculous. But it's one of those things that if you work on consistently, it'll even out.🙄
So line your hips up, I usually have my back foot at a 45° angle, and *try* to keep a neutral spine. If you need to sacrifice a bit of the straight line in order to get more stretch in your lil hams, that's okay.💪
Any questions? Let me know in the comments. 👍🏻

Face to Face Friday! I shared this on my personal accounts last Friday, but I wanted to share it here today, because I went to go weigh myself this morning, since Friday is going to be my weekly weigh-in day, and the batteries were dead on my scale! Dang! I took some photos today of an outfit that I wore right before getting pregnant with the baby, and I wanted to get a comparison on how the outfit fit me now. I still have 50 pounds to lose, but the comparison was shocking! I'll show you guys next week! Sometimes the scale doesn't show the high number of progress we want and expect, and sometimes looking at our bodies... you don't realize how far you've come because you're not quite where you want to be. But looking at photos and trying on clothes really puts things into perspective! I always tend to lose weight from the head down. My face starts thinning out first, my neck, my shoulders, my chest, my arms, my waist, all trim down... and my hips, butt, and thighs are the last to go, unfortunately! The photo on the left was taken right before getting pregnant with my baby. BEFORE pregnancy, guys! I actually lost a little bit of weight while pregnant and gained only baby because I had gotten so big.
The second photo (swipe left!) Shows a photo taken this last October 2017 at my kid's Halloween Parade. Baby was 2 months old. I find that motherhood is soooo rewarding, but it is also stressful... and I would turn to food for comfort. Now that my family is complete, I feel like I am in a different chapter of life, and I'm ready to take the step to feel comfortable in my skin, and become the person Underneath It All. My weight has been a roller coaster since I started having babies almost 12 years ago. I still have 50 pounds to lose, but I can't tell you how much better I feel physically, not only because I feel like I look better, but I feel healthier as well. The photos on the right are Valentine's Day. Here's to another successful week!!
