Today’s 44 was not one of my better ideas!!! In fact, it would have been an idea better left in my head. However, I
might be am a little stubborn and once I decided to do the move I just went with it!!!
What was the stupid move? I used my treadmill –
I sat sideways under the handles and did a pull-up move. Here is a self picture (which is why I’m only holding on with one hand!!!) since today is a day off school (Parent/Teacher Conferences) and the boys are STILL sleeping!!!
From that position (except with both hands on the rail) – I pulled myself up until my chin was above the bar – 44 times!!! See – not a good idea!!!
The main reason it was a bad idea is because now my lower back is killing me – which is why the only picture is the above one. I’m not going to do any more when the boys get up to make a video!!!
I did get in a run after the stupid 44 though – 5 miles at a fast pace and then 2.5 easy (all at 1.5% incline). I’m sure that the hard run did nothing to help my back – oops!!
We usually just say this to be funny but there really are times that it is true!!! Not everything that pops into your head should be said out-loud for numerous reasons.
- Somethings are just flat out rude.
- Somethings really don’t make sense and need to be thought through a little more.
- Somethings might be inappropriate.
- Sometimes silence is the best option.
Jordan is really good about pointing out when Chris or I make a comment that would have been better left unsaid – always makes me laugh but also realize that I really do need to keep some thoughts (and clearly some ideas!!!) in my head!
Do you have thoughts/ideas that are better kept inside your head? (I hope I’m not the only one!!!)
