So this is my new toy.
Because at my age, things–well, kind of rock and roll. Especially roll. And other things, like neck and back, get kind of stiff.
You’ve seen the ads. Just sit back and rocket (rock it.) Support head and neck.
Get sizzling hot abs.
I tried the beginner’s workout. I can rock that baby down. Easy as eating chocolate cake.
Rocking back up again? Well, that’s another story.
The video trainer–that woman with the sizzling abs–the one in the tight pants that dip below her perfect navel–stretches her arms out in front of her or crosses them over her chest and just rockets up.
Up and down. Up and down. All the way up. All the way down.
I grab the handles, grunt, and just turn blue. Blend right into the background.
If I suck in my navel and remember to breathe out when I come up, I can rocket up, oh maybe an inch. Or less.
I’m such a weakling.
I’ve thought about that a lot over the last months. A healthy spirit requires proper feeding and regular exercise. Without it, I suspect it’s weak and flabby.
I want a strong spirit.
Anyway, I’ll continue to work it, and maybe I’ll find a tighter tummy. Maybe even before I get discouraged. Or plain just tired of it.
Maybe I’ll even find some sizzling hot abs.
It’s in the fine print.
Results not typical.
But I can at least be more healthy. Maybe a little firm. And I’ll try not to compare myself to the navel lady.
I’d rather have a spirit that sizzles anyway.
But sizzling hot abs would be nice.
Are you feeding and exercising your spirit? How’s that going?
