My mom bought one of those pilates balls for me when she was down here and I have been LOVING it (we heard some places use them as "birthing balls"). Well, team, by far it is more comfortable than our La-Z-boy recliner or couch... I bounce around all day in it. Good image, I know.
But, anyway, I was telling one of my co-workers about this latest discovery and she said some of the people in her office have used it at the desk with their computers when they have back aches. So, today, I thought, why not give it a whirl while I'm working?
Well, with that preface, imagine me eating a few Reeses Peanut Butter eggs while on the ball. Now picture some awesome music playing in the background. I'm a movin' and a groovin'. Well, as I was unwrapping another treat to pop, the little egg rolled out of it's package onto the floor. No big deal, I'll chuck it... right after I ...reach for it. Now, this is where you can picture me (remember? 9 months pregnant?) ROLLING right off the ball-- SO close to smacking my face on the corner of my desk. I was centimeters away from a broken nose. Let's just say it was a close call.
Moral of story: Beware of sudden movements on the big ball. It could just prove to be a disaster.
Thanks. ok, gotta get back to work. duh.oh, and p.s. these next images were NOT the positions I was in before I rolled off. I won't be trying these slick moves for a while. thanks.
couldn't even try it if I wanted to.
