One Legged Push Ups...

Before all this happened, Cees and I had been doing 'friendly' push-up contests. Friendly as in 'Are you ready to be crushed???' 'I am going to pound you into dogmeat!'

When I broke my leg, I told him that I wouldn't be able to do this for a while. But my kids all assured me 'No problem! You can just do one-legged push-ups.' Immediately jumping to the floor and showing me how they easily could do one-legged push-ups. Yes, I had 3 or 4 of my kids on the floor doing those.

For a few days, I was able to use my leg as an excuse, but today, I felt I should stop whining about it and just see whether I could do the darned pushups. Amazingly enough, it was not as hard as I thought. My big problem is that my one foot slips, so I kind of automatically stop when my foot slips too far. But still, I ended up doing thirty push-ups all together! (not in one batch)

After that, we found a yoga book and looked for poses which were do-able with a broken leg. We had fun doing those for a while. Now I am back at the computer, being lazy :)
