Since coming to Japan, I have had a lot of firsts. But I just did something for the first time that I have wanted to do all of my life. I CAN TOUCH MY TOES!!!!!
Ok, I know that sounds dumb but I have never been able to touch my toes. When I was little, I would go to PE class and they would have those stupid little measuring sticks to see how far you could reach and my teachers always were disappointed with me because I couldn't touch my toes. Screw you all, you lame gym teachers, I can touch my freaking toes now! Ha!
Lately, I have been stretching more, this coupled with the fact that my gut isn't what it used to be, has finally allowed me to reach a goal that I have had for a long time. I tried to do it a few minutes ago and while I am definitely not comforatble in that position and I had to bounce a tad, I did it. I think as the days go by, I will be able to do it more easily. Anywho, I know this was kind of a dumb post but I am really excited by this for some reason. Now if I could only do a pull-up...that may be a while. When I used to lift weights, my trainer said that in order to do a pull-up most people have to have less than a certain percentage of body fat and I know I am not there yet, though I can't remember what percentage it was.
Trivia Fact of The Day: In order to see your ab muscles, men have to have less than 8% body fat and women must have less than 14% body fat.
And on that note, time to go find something for dinner. :)
