I’m a thief. I’m trying to talk my parents out of their recumbent bike because it has been sitting since they moved into this house without being used. That’s how I ended up with a new Xbox 360. Mom got it to use the kinect exercise games, but decided she’d rather have a Wii. She got a Wii and doesn’t use that either. After I got her an exercise ball and resistance bands because “if I had those I’d exercise”, and they haven’t been pulled out of the box 3 years later, I realized she just likes to have an excuse to not exercise so there’s no point since she’ll always come up with a reason. Not that we even have a place to put a bike in my house unless I give up the treadmill. I don’t know how many thousands of miles I’ve put on that thing. I hate to give it up since it still gets periodic use when manchild is getting ready for a PT test.
I started my infamous chili recipe, but I won’t be having any out of fiber fear. I had some rice chex and yogurt and have no idea what I want to eat for dinner. I’ll probably start with a foofy Seagram’s beverage and let the alcohol decide what I want to eat.
Dad got a TENS unit for his back pain, but doesn’t want to use it, so apparently it belongs to me now. It only has 4 electrodes and I think I need 8 to do both legs at a time, but maybe I can get the right nerves with only 2. We’ll see. It’s an inexpensive unit, and replacement pads are cheap, so it’s worth a try. I say yes to anything that has the potential to reduce pain.
Manchild is not enjoying his time away. He said it’s basic training all over again and his time is not his own. So much for it being a vacation. Bummer.
