[When I originally wrote this post, there was an ad at the top asking if I were a Pilates mom, or more of an aerobics type, or whatever; it also offered a chance to win an XBox Kinect to whomever of us would be willing to make a video of ourselves doing our exercise routines. All this to explain the rest of the post...]
I'm none of the above, by the way. I'm more of a Girl Scout Cookie Gal. In case you were wondering...
Also? I'm still trying to figure out how one would take a video of oneself while exercising. Is that possible? The video part, I mean, not the exercise part. I know the exercise part is possible, of course. But NOT probable, I must admit. I'm sort of exercise-adverse.
Which might just explain why I am such a Weight Watchers recidivist, come to think of it...
Maybe Larry should buy me one of those XBox Kinect things. Do you need a modern TV to use it? Or do people hook it up to their computers? I wouldn't want to exercise in front of my computer desk in the den, though, with that huge mess of papers and abandoned cables and wires and - hey, my lost Amazon Visa card! - staring me in the face.
|As if I could even figure out how to work this thing...|
Come to think of it, the TV wouldn't suit me much better - it's in the family room downstairs and I'd have to make the kids clean up their toy mess and then I would have to vacuum or I couldn't stand being down there. And the situation in that sector of the house has just gotten worse since our neighbors gave us this huge brown metal cabinet (circa 1960) that I had planned to put in the laundry/utility room so Larry could stuff all his tools in it and close the doors. That way, the laundry room (which doubles as a garage-type storage space for us townhouse dwellers) wouldn't look so messy.
Good idea, right? Only, the horrid thing (the cabinet, I mean, not Larry) is making my menopausal-I-hate-ugly-furniture self miserable, because it is STILL hulking around in the family room until we manage to clean up the laundry room enough to move the cabinet in there.
Do you see how confusing and difficult all this is for me? No wonder I don't exercise.
