See that? Yes. That is indeed my tushie resting on an exercise ball. And yes, that is a picture of me with my tushie in a recliner LOOKING at my exercise ball; because I want to be certain to use it properly and not cause more harm than good. I've send a message to my physiatrist and my physical therapist to schedule some serious exercise ball training.
Please note also that my white pants are once again un-goobered. Woo hoo!
Why an exercise ball? I'm trying very hard to investigate all sorts of exercise options that I hadn't considered before, and the idea of a ball that provides a "boing boing" sensation sounds appealing to me. I'm encouraged by my body's response to several consecutive days of using a recumbent exercise bike as well. I fully intend to get back into our community center pool, but dang. It is closed for yearly maintenance for the next two weeks. But after it's completed, I'll be there with water shoes and flamingo beach towel at the ready.
Thanks for all the inspiration and suggestions for exercise sent my way. They're all goodies.
