After work, the weather was cool and cloudy so I decided to go ahead and get a real walk in. I'm happy that the 3 mile walk is still challenging enough to me that I feel proud when I complete it. I shaved 5 minutes off my usual time of an hour. My tailbone is still being funky, which annoys me but I figure, that thing's going to feel funky whether or not I go for a walk so I might as well just do it. When I got home I searched some videos on how to stretch the psoas muscle and did a few stretches. It made a big difference in the tailbone. Hopefully that is going to be a great discovery I can continue to get success from. I might make it part of my morning ritual, psoas stretches with some meditation and something hot to drink after. If it doesn't get better with psoas stretches I might have to see a chiropractor. I am going to try and avoid that if I can help it. I know stretching is essential to vitality and it has been the missing link in my quest for a healthier lifestyle. I think if I make it routine I'll be grateful I did. The hardest part of developing a habit is starting, once it becomes part of the norm you're not fighting against it so much.
I feel like I put a lot of effort into my quest for self-improvement today. Now I'm going to go pamper myself with a mud mask and a little reading before getting some beauty rest. I can't wait to see what tomorrow will bring.
