I’m obsessing again. This time on the Bodybugg. (It’s a device that you wear on your arm that tracks how many calories you are burning.) I came across it online a few weeks ago and I’ve been thinking about it ever since. The reviews on blogs and message boards have been mixed but overall people seem to love it. I keep thinking “maybe”. Maybe this is the “missing key” to maintaining which to me is much harder than losing. Maybe this will give me the motivation I need to eat peanut butter without having to ask for permission. Maybe I’ll discover I can eat more. (Wishful thinking) Maybe I’ll be able to enjoy pizza without guilt. Maybe parking in the farthest parking space in Target will be fun. Maybe I’ll start vacuuming as if there is a reward for world’s fastest vacuumer.
I’m using a 7 year old cell phone because I don’t want to pay for a new one. Both of my cars are nearing 10 years old. I bought Joe’s Jeans (that ripped the first time I tried to wear them) from a recycled clothing shop. I workout in my garage with rusty dumbbells and spiders. I’m not complaining. In fact, I actually enjoy being thrifty and I’m extremely grateful to even own a cell phone but spending $300 on a device is just hard for me. I’ve been trying to talk myself out of it but this morning I read this review by Chalene Johnson. Now, I am starting to convince myself I need instead of want a Bodybugg. We’ll see….
