So this is the perfect opportunity to do some core workouts. I've always enjoyed yoga and I practice every morning as the sun comes up. The problem is that I need more of a challenge. And what could challenge me more than a $40 piece of foam?
I roll my body on the roll of foam and it massages all my aching muscles. It is much cheaper than a deep tissue massage, I don't need to schedule an appointment, and I don't have to worry about my towel falling off when I'm getting off the table (I made that up. It never happened. Honestly.)
I also do many of my laying and standing yoga positions ON THE ROLLER instead of on the floor. This is a major challenge because, as you can guess, it ROLLS. And when mom is on the floor in contorted positions, trying not to fall off the roller, the children LAUGH. And when the children laugh, mom laughs. And when mom laughs, she falls off the roller. And when mom falls off the roller, the children laugh more. And when mom gets back on the roller while laughing, she loses her balance and falls again. I'm sure you can see where this is headed. Overall, it's a great ab workout.
So if anyone is looking for me, I'll be on my foam.
