Yesterday while we were out running errands we stopped at a garage sale.Â We got a deal on a stationary bike and an ab lounger – dirt cheap.Â If you know me you know that I have been dieting and walking since the first of November and I am very near my goal.Â The weather and time has been a big factor in walking.Â Since I started this in November I walked through the coldest part of the winter and there were some times that it hurt to breath the cold air.Â I walked anyway.Â Rain is another story altogether.Â I’m determined but not crazy.Â Well, at least not crazy about walking in the rain.
At any rate, I had been watching for a treadmill or something that would allow me to get the exercise on bad weather days.Â I was already loading up the bike and hubby asked if I wanted the ab lounger too.Â He showed me how you use it and the price was right so we loaded it up too.
I didn’t think I had any “abs”.Â Well at least not muscle… too much information, I know.Â This morning, I find that I not only have them but they and my shoulders are yelling at me!Â I don’t think the ab lounger and I will ever be BFFs but I will allow it to torture me if it helps me get to my goal and even set a new one.Â Ouch – the yelling just hurt my ears!Â My “abs’ and shoulders want to know if I have lost what little mind I had! They want to know what they have ever done to deserve this punishment?
I have promised them an oreo later if they will just shut up for now…
You should come to physical therapy with me. They have shown me muscles I never knew existed!
Give them an oreo – it makes them smiley 🙂
