Remember last summer? Remember how good I was doing with the gym and walking and losing weight and feeling good? I do too.
I haven't had the time to do that kind of stuff these last few months. I know some die hard exercise junkies would say that I just didn't make the time. That I could have woken up early to go before work, or brought lunch to work so that my hour break could be spent walking or working out, etc. and I suppose to some extent this is true.
Regardless, I've been feeling fat. My clothes still fit so if I've gained anything back it hasn't been too much. Still, I was doing SO good for a while. Point being, I've decided that I need to get back on track.
I had the bright idea that I needed something to give me a jumpstart when I saw an infomercial for something called the Hardcore Diet Pill. Well, I checked it out online and wasn't impressed. There was something hinky about it. Last night, I sat there watching an infomercial for an exercise video/DVD called Turbo Jam. It guarantees that you lose 10 pounds and 10 inches in your first week. It looks pretty crazy and I'm debating it. Of course, I didn't make it to see what the cost is but it was worth considering.
On Mondays, on my way to work, I stop at the grocery store for cereal and milk and I have breakfast at work. This morning, I detoured through the diet aisle and looked at the Dexatrim Max, something else I had seen the commercial for recently. You get 100 pills and take one tablet one to two times a day. Simple. I can do that. Then I look at the price. $24.00. It went right back on the shelf and I continued on with my original mission.
I suppose that anything worth having is worth paying for and had it been half that price, I would have made the purchase. But it seemed like an awful lot of money. So I have clothes here at work to work out in. Now I just need to get to the gym and/or walk.
In connection with my last post, is it wrong for me to put myself first for a change? I know I can do this but I need to focus... does that make me selfish?
