Yesterday while we were out running errands we stopped at a garage sale. We got a deal on a stationary bike and an ab lounger – dirt cheap. 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. The weather and time has been a big factor in walking. 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. I walked anyway. Rain is another story altogether. I’m determined but not crazy. 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. I was already loading up the bike and hubby asked if I wanted the ab lounger too. 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”. Well at least not muscle… too much information, I know. This morning, I find that I not only have them but they and my shoulders are yelling at me! 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. Ouch – the yelling just hurt my ears! 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…
