Embarrassing Reasons You’re Sore

We counted down our favourite answers on the show. Sometimes you hurt yourself doing every day things.

The joys of waking up feeling like you got hit by a truck for no apparent reason! Our bodies have a funny way of reminding us that we’re not as young as we used to be. Here are some of our listener suggestions of embarrassing reasons your body has felt sore:

  1. The dance floor – Nothing like busting out your best moves on the dance floor only to regret it the next day when your hips are screaming at you.
  2. Trying to impress your gym crush – We’ve all been there, pushing ourselves a little too hard during a workout to show off to that cute guy or girl. But hey, at least you got their attention, right?
  3. Staying up all night binge-watching Netflix – Who needs sleep when you have a whole season of your favorite show to watch? Your body, apparently, because now you can barely move without wincing in pain.
  4. Attempting a new yoga pose you saw on Instagram – That picture of the girl effortlessly doing a handstand on the beach made it look so easy, right? Wrong. Now you’re stuck in child’s pose, unable to straighten your back without wincing.
  5. Carrying all the groceries in one trip – Because who has time for multiple trips back and forth from the car? Your arms might hate you now, but at least you saved some time, right?
  6. Simply just….walking. How does this even happen?
  7. Travelling – When your neck is sore from simply sitting still for a couple of hours
  8. Riding a horse – shouldn’t the horse be the one that is sore?
  9. Bowling – most of us do this bi-annually. We usually cant move the next day LOL

So next time you’re hobbling around like a grandma after a day of seemingly normal activities, just remember: you’re not alone. We’ve all been there, and we’ll probably be there again. But hey, at least it makes for a good story, right? What needs to be added to the list?
