I was feeling more energetic today so I pulled out a Pilate’s video that I had bought a while back and never even opened. Since I am hating the Firm videos with that stupid step that I will kill myself on, I thought this might be better. It comes with those rubber bands for resistance training. To do upper body training you are supposed to pinch the middle of the band in a door. Against my better judgement I did this. Apparently you need a door that seals really tightly. As I was doing bicep curls and the band is stretched to the max the damn thing slips loose and SNAPS me on the chin. I saw it coming in slow motion. It hurts so stinking bad, I can’t even tell you. Then as I am standing up I realize how funny that must have looked. Even now as my chin has a HUGE red welt on it and it still stinging something fierce I can’t stop laughing at myself. I am injured from doing Pilate’s for seniors! I am pathetic.
