30 Sec's on....
So at 11pm last Sunday, I had this random, and what I thought at the time was a truly bodelicious idea, to get a Ski Machine.
With the theory being, that I could work out while watching tv.
Do not roll your eyes at me.
But moving right along, the thought was that it is:
a) Always bloody dark...
And if for some reason it's not dark, then I'm busy and
b) You will not airlift me out of my house with 10 guys who have bodies like Chippendales, when it is cold, to go to the gym.
So based on those two very brilliant reasons, I hired this machine.
However, here lies the, It seemed like a good idea at the time.
1) It is currently, all 6'8" of it, sitting in my living room.
2) OMFG it literally re-creates you ski-ing.
I have skied once in my life when I was 12. I promptly fell over, ass over tit, and thus ended that love affair.
3) I hate the cold.
4) I'm scared of heights.
But it is now Day 3, and I have to say that I have kind of fallen in love with it.
And I am, as I am writing this, up to 7 minutes.
But damn it's hard.
But it's also kind of cool.
Because it literally is a full body workout.
And is a little tricky mini if you are, like moi, working with high cortisol levels.
Because this machine, kind of makes you think you're not actually exercising.
Thereby tricking the body into not making extra cortisol.
Which is both super weird and kind of cool.
And I like the rhythm of it. It's soothing and kind of peaceful.
Am I planning on actually hitting the ski slopes though?
Ah, Hell to the No.
But this giagantic monster, that has taken up residence in my lounge for the next 11 and a half weeks, has kind of grown on me.
I will never do an hour, but it's not made for that. It's goal is a super-mini-full-body workout.
I can watch tv though...with the fire going.
And my muscles are hurting, letting me know that something has been going on.
But I've not mentioned the best bit,
...in some insane, other-worldly-how-the-fuck-did-this-happen random Universe, it's fun.
