Somehow I feel more creative and have more to write about when I am down and sick of the world, but that sucks because, obviously, it’s harder to come up with a funny post when you’re feeling like staying in bed all day with your Ben & Jerry pint of ice-cream.
So here I am, thinking really hard on what I could write about that won’t make you guys slit your wrists or take out the box of Kleenex, when this “6 Weight-Loss Tips You Don’t Already Know” email shows up in my inbox. I’m a sucker for these types of messages, as if the mere fact of receiving them would cut a couple of inches off my butt. I gotta be honest though, I’m a little disappointed with the tips. Turns out I already know most of them (sleep, don’t drink soda, involve your friends in your exercise routines, blah blah blah…). However, one tip stands out from the rest that I hadn’t heard before:
Buy new workout gear
If you’re sporting the same tees and sweats you bought years ago, you’re bound to get bored. Spruce up your workout wardrobe — tops, pants, undergarments, sneakers, etc. and add a little sartorial excitement to your exercise routine.
Really? Who came up with that, Nike? Champion? I wonder if weight-loss is proportional to the amount of money you spend on “spruced up working gear”. I was thinking on making a slightly bigger payment on my credit card this month, but if spending my money on cute sports bras and the latest model of running shoes is going to get me a reduced-size behind, you know where my dollars are going this summer!
Anybody up for giving it a try and reporting the results back to me?
