Happy Fitness Friday everyone! If you’re serious about getting in shape, you cannot afford to go another day without…
I dont know about the blog’s readers but I am old enough to remeber when these were known as Cool Whip container lids and we’re designed with the specific purpose of keeping that delicious non-dairy goodness both fresh and in it’s place until just before you decide to ruin a perfectly good slice of pumpkin pie with it.
Seriously, if your pie, coffee, milkshake needs a little something, use the real thing; cream, vanilla, and sugar instead of; water, hydrogenated vegetable oil, high fructose corn syrup, corn syrup, skim milk, less than 2% of light cream, sodium caseinate, natural and artificial flavor, xanthan and guar gums, polysorbate 60, sorbitan monostearate, sodium polyphosphate, and beta carotene (as a coloring). It’s better for you and much better tasting.
I seem to have gotten off track there…
Anyway, I am all about capitalism and fitness but a constant fear of a nasty de-toothing courtesy of my hardwood floor or the demonstrably unpleasant sensation of walking on ice (something I am not particularly good at or fond of) completely rule these out as an option for me. That and, I am more of a traditionalist who believes cycling, running, picking heavy things up and putting them down, and boot camp inspired moves like burpees, push-ups, and pull-ups are better than plastic circles or any gadget an infomercial tells you will get you ready for bathing suit season in only 18 minutes a day.
With the exception of bands, which are awesome for their portability and cost savings versus a set of weights and push-up stands which are easier on the wrist and give you a greater range of motion than traditional push-ups, fitness gadgets (unless making you lighter in the wallet is your weight loss goal) will always let you down.
