Remember when I had the little mishap with falling off the toilet and hitting my head on the sink? Well, I believe I may have concussed myself once again. Frankly, I’m surprised that I’m even aloud to handle hand weights at all…someone probably needs to intervene. Last night I was doing those exercises where it’s supposed to keep you from getting that floppy bye-bye arm dangle…know what I’m talkin about? I don’t have the arm dangle yet, my arms are the one area that is perfectly skinny on me. Actually, they’re like wet noodles and I’ve been trying in vain for years to build some muscle tone there…ANYWAY – the exercise is where you hold a weight straight over your head and then bend at the elbow and bring the weight down behind your head. I’m sure I don’t have to spell it out for you. Yes, I brought the 8lb weight crashing down on my skull. And today I’m sportin’ a lovely knot. I’ve been doing these exercises for quite some time now and you’d think I would have learned how to do them properly by now…sadly, no, I have not.
Oh and last night, Ju & I went for a bike ride and I only “almost” wrecked! Actually, we both “almost” wrecked a couple of times, so I feel much better about myself today and I’m sure after reading that I’m comparing her bike riding skills to mine, she’ll be feeling much worse about herself. She actually had the dangerous “edge of the road encounter” and went down off the road and had to ride like that for at least 50 feet before she could get back on the road! It was quite funny! She kept saying things like “I have all-terrain tires, so I could go back up on the road any time I wanted to…blah, blah, blah.” She was too scared! She had to wait til the road evened out with the edge! What a sissy!
By the way, do any of you actually know when it was that I actually became so accident-prone? I mean I used to have some skills right? I could tear up the bball court or the fast-pitch diamond with no problems. I think it was the whole having kids thing that did me in. Somehow that turned me into a big wimp…I’m gonna work on that.
So, on a different note, I took this fun little quiz today on another blog that I like to read, because these little personality quizzes are just so very pertinent to the fabric of our beings, aren’t they? And here are the fabulous results:
Big Surprise here: I am Flip Flops!
You are laid back and very friendly.
Cheery and sunny in disposition, you usually have something to smile about.
Style is important to you as long as you can stay casual.
It takes a lot to get you to dress up.
You are a loyal and true person, though you can be a bit of a flake.
You tend to play hooky and blow off responsibilities.
You should live: by the beach.
You should work: at a casual up and coming company.
This was actually pretty accurate for me…especially the flaky part! 🙂 You can take the quiz here:
Let me know what your results are, all you KM6’s!
