Well, that escalated quickly

I was reading a blog yesterday, and the lady was giving funny titles for potential alternate blogs.  I can say with certainty this would be mine...

I was doing my strength training session yesterday, and the first song after my warm-up was Bawitdaba by Kid Rock.  Well, there's no way I'm lifting weights to that.  Mama is putting on a concert of one with face high kicks and head bangs that put Metallica to shame.  It was loud.  I felt sexy.  I felt....dizzy.  I went on with the workout and got my 30 minutes in and was a sweaty heap.  

"Damn, I wanna headbang to that again."  


Yeah.  I shouldn't have done that.

When I was done and made my way upstairs, I felt the familiar symptoms of whiplash from last year where I was lightheaded, couldn't properly hold up my own head very well and was pretty sure I was going to die.  I knew the Mr was in a meeting that would last the rest of the day, but this is the message I sent him. 

FYI- should you come home and find that I have either passed out or died of a cerebral hemorrhage, it's because I headbanged to Bawitdaba....twice.  Kinda feelin' whiplashed.  (For real)  So just make sure that's how people know I died.  I rocked out til I conked out.  No dating until I've been dead for a year, please.  I love you!  ❤

Then I fixed lunch which was interesting because I still felt a little dizzy.  I thought "I'll feel REALLY good tomorrow."  Oh no, that was you 20 years ago.  I should've said, "I'll feel REALLY good in 30 minutes." 


At that point, I was afraid to shower because I was sure I was going to crash through the shower door.  Not wanting to die smelling like sweat and shame, I decided I'd bring my phone up and unlocked it for a medical emergency if necessary. 

I made it!  (Well, if nothing is written tomorrow then I probably didn't in which case you've all been a lovely crowd, thank you and good night!  I'll see you on the other side!)

Getting older is a bite in the @ss.

What things can't you do without consequence that you could do 10-20 years ago?

  1. That cat pic...too funny! Hopefully ice and ibuprofen has helped but if not I am more than happy to continue massaging your neck muscles you little head banger!

  2. I love that cat.

    The answer to your question - pretty much anything. Definitely too old for headbanging, but that doesn't mean we have to give up the music. I stepped wrong on an uneven spot on a friends floor, 3 days of lower back pain.

  3. You poor thing. I agree about the cat -- hilarious! The dizziness is the worst part of that I would think because feeling like you're going to hurl is awful no matter what. I hope that is gone today and between heat and ice, the muscle pains will go away quickly.

    For me, it's anything on my knees. I can't even be on my knees to look under the bed. I have one really bad knee (hence why I go down the stairs sideways) and the other is so filled with scar tissue that it's a huge bulge on my knee cap. Even playing with the dogs I have to sit on my butt. I miss the days when I could sit on my haunches and not have any pain. Sigh....
