It's official, I am an old lady. Let me explain. I have MS (Story for another post) and herniated discs in my back (another post as well). Well, I know that I need to exercise to try and keep the pain level in my back to a minimum, but you are in pain all the time, it becomes a vicious cycle. I can't exercise because my leg hurts so I don't, then it gets worse because I don't... Anyhow, a friend of mine has moved recently and had to get rid of her three wheeler bike. I told her how I would love to have one, but there was no way I could even think of buying it, when we don't even have to nickels to rub together. That was when my husband said, why don't I barter with her. My lightbulb went on.
I used to be a hairdresser and I can cut hair...duh. So I called my friend and made thee offer. She loved the idea. She thinks she is getting the better of the deals and I feel I am, so I guess we are both winners.
Well my daughter and I have been utilizing my new/old bike. She takes the pooch out on the leash while I sit my hiney on the bike. And let me tell you, that bike seat is massive. they must think that only retired broad-butted women need to ride three-wheelers. Clue in folks. Even those of us who are average sized need to exercise.
So, today I had an epiphany. As we were making our trek back to the house, I looked to my shoulder and realized I could wear my bathing suit (with shorts attached, as not to embarrass my daughter more than I already am by riding a three-wheeler) and get exercise. My daughter about had a kaniption fit. I told her that I would wear short, but why not kill as many birds with one stone as you possible can. So tomorrow, I will don my bathing suit and build a tan on the Lucille Ball white skin.
