I got a big red exercise ball last week. I wanted to use it as a computer chair (which I am and it rules, except for how my skin sticks to it because it’s hot as BALLS here. Ahem.), and also to start doing some strengthening exercises (crunches, push ups, squats, etc.) and I thought it might jumpstart me a bit.
It hasn’t. Today I’m doing them no matter what, because summer league ended, and I ate an ice cream sandwich for breakfast, and I have to fit into my wedding dress in less than 2 months. But that’s not the point.
The point is that last night while I was working at the computer (sitting in the actual computer chair), I realized that Fiance had sat down on the ball and immediately started doing crunches. And then started doing push ups. Like, he sees an exercise ball and it makes his brain go, “let’s work out! this’ll be great!” whereas when I see one, my brain goes, “bouncy! bounce bounce bounce.”
