This year too….

Like every year it starts off with a bang from the fireworks and then it’s there the commercials and ads for dieting to lose weight that you may have put on during the holiday season … Me; I don‘t gain weight!!

My clothes may have shrunk in size, maybe I washed them in tooo warm water, but, no it can’t be true that I gained weight during the holiday season!! Though according to all the ads and new diets to try I must have!! I could scream, maybe that would help…

I got to looking at some of those promising diets out there that will give me a figure like a goddess in 12 weeks ( really I have to suffer eating pea sized amounts of food for 3 months …. Neh… too much work for me!!) Then after I finish that diet I have to think about the summer bikini diet…. Though no worries… I think I’ll pass on that one too!! I’m past the bikini stage of life and if I put one on I would probably scare everyone off the beach if they saw me….. AHHHH

This year I thought I need to go on a diet at least once in my life, so after watching all the commercials on TV and glancing magazines; I decided on a magazine that offers a DVD workout too…. Now I am on the way to my goddess figure…. Watch out world!!!

I rushed home with my magazine the other day and just the name of this diet “ Detox your system and easy Yoga”. Really now, what could be easier?? I ask…. I looked at the recipes and jotted down what I need to buy ( I will be bankrupt once I buy everything on the list). Okay I’ll admit not all recipes are for me and don’t look very tasty either. I’ll just make the ones that I like and skip the others.

But, before I start I need to watch the DVD with the easy yoga exercises that will turn my figure into ……. Who knows what by the time I am finished….. Let’s wait and see! Oh, I forgot to mention that I even bought new yoga training clothes to make my workout better.

I popped the DVD into the TV and got ready for action….. There are 3 sections for each part of your body and lots of stuff to read before starting. To be honest I am starting to feel tired already, so I think I’ll get myself a cup of tea and then sit down and watch the first section which is 15 minutes long (all sections are). Not to forget this is for everyone as it says. I feel relieved to know this…. Thanks

The music starts( not very motivating) there the women shows me what to do and carries-on for the 15 minutes and telling me how much fun all this is… Somehow I seem to be missing the action, and it all seems like toooo much work for me! I hit the FF button and skip to the detox recipe ( I hope it tastes good, because I am getting hungry after watching all that exciting action!!)

There before my eyes Miss Yoga starts making a detox drink out of various green veggies and keeps saying that it doesn’t taste good but you should drink it… I started counting how many times she said it tasted terrible and she said it at least 10 times, so there is no way that I am going to make myself one of those green concoction drinks… No,thank-you!!!

After my afternoon filled with a DVD exercises and the detox recipe; I already feel as if I have lost at least 3 pounds, so I think that I can take it easy for the rest of the next 12 weeks and wait for the next new bikini diet DVD to be with the next magazine and I can watch it too and see those pounds just melting away as I sitting on my sofa enjoying a good workout watching a DVD.

Enjoy your dieting whichever one you choose!

Shopping for shoes…. A worrying or trying job?

After reading an article about where women’s shoes are placed on shelves of shoe stores; it got me thinking and of course as a gal I rushed out to the nearest shoe store to take a look at where all the shoes were placed according to size.

What I mean is top shelf small sizes or are there stores with large sizes first….. The challenges of trying to find a pair of shoes and now with summer approaching there are the summer styles too.

OMG… I feel stressed out before evening looking for my size. Now where I live sneakers are all the rage in every style and color and price range. Okay, sneakers are nice and comfortable, but I as a gal don’t want to wear them with every outfit… Shoe makers take heed!!!

Then as I looked through the rows of sneakers … of course they were the first to see when I entered the shoe store and yes, small sizes on the top shelf and larger sizes place on the lower shelves…. Bigger your foot the more you need to bend-over to find your size. But all those sneakers staring at me didn’t have that “ flare” that is needed to compel me to buy them. Plus the sandal styles are almost exactly the same as last year…. Now what??? I bought a new pair Last year and they still look like new…. Okay, don’t tell anyone or they may point down at my sandals and say “ Ah, last year’s style”….. A traumatizing thought indeed.

As a gal I need those sandals or maybe even a pair of sneakers before the warm weather comes. What would happen if a warm day fell upon us and there I was out and about without my sandals on or my new summer sneakers??? I hope I don’t get any gray hairs from this worrying thought!!!

I have looked and searched the shelves of endless shoe stores only to leave them in a bewildered state thinking to myself…. “Where should I go next or just say the heck with it and go home?” But my shoe money is burning a hole in my pocket… I have to buy a new pair or else be crowned the wearer of last summer’s shoe style.. HELP

Shoes are always screaming out at me no matter where I turn or where I am… on TV commercials, in magazines or on billboards…. SHOES… SNEAKERS saying buy me you need me and you will look good any have lots of friends if you wear these. What do I do now??? Confusion is twirling around in my brain… I need all those shoes… I want to be cool and have thousands of friends; Okay maybe thousands of friends is a bit over doing it, but not being cool… OMG!!

The perils of shopping for shoes! I hope you find the pair you are looking for… and enjoy them
