So just the other day I was thinking that I’m a lazy piece of crap and I need to tighten up this body of mine. I of course began by outlining the diet that I was going to do – of course I would think that diet alone will help me or anyone else in ship shape condition. I started with the normal debate if I starve myself, eat only lettuce and tomatoes, go organic or attempt the whole diet-pill meal replacement thing – what is best I wonder? The answer? No fricking clue.
Now, I’ve counted calories before and have been successful at it. The best resource I’ve found (and that my doctor has recommended) is a site called http://www.thedailyplate.com. You are able to not only search and count calories but keep a running track of the number of calories you take in and how much you use while exercising (or in my case breathing).
So I choose counting calories (as usual) and as I make this decision be rest assured that I’m stuffing my face with mashed potatoes and decide to take a trip out to the local outlet mall. I saw a commercial for the Reebok EasyTONE shoes and a magazine ad. Hmmmmm... I wonder – does it work. Apparently the shoe is supposed to tone your leg and butt muscles by creating instability that you compensate for. I don’t know about all that, but I figure I’m just lazy enough to give it a try.
I buy a pair, which for some reason seems silly as though I’m going to have a rock-hard toned ass through what Reebok calls “balance pods.” The show cost me 90 bucks after a discount and I’ll tell you what - those shoes are comfortable as all hell. Your tush is supposed to have increased muscle activation up to 28% and 11% for thighs and calves. (I’ll let you know in the review section once I give them adequate time to use them). I’m not sure that my rear will ever look like the ads but what a great marketing campaign!
(Hey, for those girls who love flipflops apparently there is eaven an EasyTone Flip Sandle!!!)
