Trying Out Exercise Machines

I decided to try one of these exercise machines out at the Parque La Francia (Villa Duarte, Santo Domingo Este) this morning. I pass by and see others using these machines all the time. They looked easy enough so I decided to give this one, the farthest away from the other humans exercising, a shot. It was a real challenge.

My balance is not the greatest so I got on very carefully. One foot then the other.

Careful. Oh so carefully.


 

That machine started swaying back and forth as I grabbed onto those handles for dear life. I started laughing OUT LOUD. Saying things like “Woah Doblin” (my dad used to say that when he drove and came to a stop sometimes..lol), “Oh my” and “Shewee” while trying to make myself walk in sync on that thing. All the time laughing out loud to myself! I even got a few snort-laughs in before I even realized.

I gave up my big machine try as some other exercisers came closer. They probably thought I was “some kind of a nut” (my grandma used to say that..lol), rightfully so.

All this time my dogs, Inteliperra and Buenagente stood there. Looking around. Guarding me. Probably thinking their momma needs some mental help.

I will try again another day when there are no humans around so I can laugh at myself in private.
