Gimme a Break!

Today I was day dreaming about what new workout plan I will have after I have the baby. (I know.... a little early to be thinking about losing the baby weight!) I had seen an infomercial awhile ago that I wanted to look up. I forgot the name and just got on the As Seen On TV website. I don't know if you've ever looked at this website, but it can be quite hilarious. I have to admit, it does have some cool and interesting gadgets.....and some not so much. So after browsing awhile, I decided why work out and eat healthy when I can just start this:

I can eat cookies all day and lose weight? Yep! You can eat one cookie for breakfast, snack, lunch, snack, and then eat a sensible dinner. They claim each cookie is 150 calories, full of vitamins and minerals, and very tasty! A box of 12 cookies is $20, too. Sheesh, come one! If anyone knows me well, you know I am very anti- any diet! I hate them, they are ridiculous! This one is actually much like other diets where you eat their "product" for all meals except dinner. You are losing weight because you are not eating very many calories! You are eating just 600 calories before dinner. Even if you ate a dinner that was 1,000 calories, that is only 1600 calories for the whole day and you are supposed to get 2,000 to 2,400 calories. So, yes, you will lose weight, but I'm sorry.... eating one cookie for snacks and meals WILL NOT cut it for me. I would starve.

This is called the "6 second abs". Hmm what else is their to say about that one! I think we have gone from seeing 6 MINUTE ab workouts to 6 SECOND ab workouts. But, to give them some credit, I actually think there are even crazier ab machines out there than this one!

Who doesn't want to work out on a tiny trampoline? ME! Who thinks up these things? And even worse, who buys them!? When I see this, I just picture a person all geared up in their workout clothes, jumping around on this trampoline, and it makes me laugh to myself.

I found this and thought it could be the perfect Christmas gift! So, if I buy you a Christmas gift this year, this is what you'll be getting! Hope you like it as much as I do.

I think I am already on the "cookie diet."

When I was younger and worked in an office, I bought a box of "Ayds"--diet candy to keep in my desk drawer. I ate the whole box in one day--so much for that diet!
