Yesterday we purchased resistance bands. Do you use these? I've only ever dabbled in using them in random group exercise classes that involve moves like the Jersey fist pump. But yesterday we got a whole set of bands that look just like this.
We were on our way to the gym last night and I had a mini melt down. Actually more of a medium melt down if you ask my husband, but who's asking him? I think it was a combination of a few things. 1) It's friggin' hot 2) My soul is being sucked out through my foot 3) The gym is getting old. So I did what any rational almost 30 year old woman would do. Bitched and moaned and got cranky and started crying cause my foot hurt. Wait, did I just actually tell you how much of a pain in the ass I was yesterday?
Mostly, I was just upset because I couldn't stand the thought of walking around the gym in my boot with the nagging pain and trying to navigate the recumbent bike and the gym equipment with my Franken-leg. How's THAT for the most awesome run-on sentence ever?
So you know why my hunk of a straight razor shaving husband did? Went out and got me a set of resistance bands so we can start doing some home workouts. Isn't that nice? He tried to make my life a little easier even after I went to crazy town.
The moral of the story? Set up a mini home gym for those days when you have a medium melt down
