I do not look anything like this guy. Except for the facts that I am white and am always sitting on a big blue ball.
So, in February, I got an EA Sports Active Kit, and started one of their 30 Day Challenges, which is a series of exercises designed to ease you into the "personal training" program and introduce you to the exercises. But about 12 exercises in, I began to tear the resistance band, and every time I exercised with it, I kept tearing it a little more. I couldn't keep going with the exercises, so I couldn’t complete my challenge.
...and then it took me a month before I got another resistance band from a medical supply store. Why so long? Because I am a lazy, LAZY procrastinator. But I started a new 30 Day Challenge today, and I have to tell you: it was a LOT rougher than I had thought it would be. I think it has a little bit to do with the fact that this band has a little more tensile strength than the one that came with the kit, but a lot more to do with the fact that I have been inactive lately. I’m starting again, though, and I hope I have enough motivation to get me through. I am also keeping my difficulty at “Easy,” at least for this go-around, because I want to make sure I go through every exercise, and don’t get tempted to skip a day. I can always try again on a harder difficulty in the future, right?
So. Thirty days. Twenty exercises. One man. Can it be done? We will see, my friends. We will see.
(Also: I am back from my Uncle's funeral service in Montreal. I will talk about that later.)
