Hi Siobhan, Yeah, I'm not sure why the pull-up is so important to me, I suppose that it is proof that I am both strong enough and light enough to do them. The band things are great, but pricey (like every fricken thing). My trainer has some other gizmo that has a plastic stirrup for your foot and a number of elastic tubes that can be added or taken away as you progress. I considered getting one of these, but the band things seemed more versatile.
You did way better at your picnic than I did, eating-wise. The only reason that I did alright was it was just too hot to eat much. I brought a huge fruit tray and that was very popular. I ate some, but have been trying to keep my fruit consumption to a single serving a day.
Everything goes back to normal tomorrow. I'm actually glad for that.
