Got the Bug

It's probably the worst bug ever.  I have the bug that makes me want to buy something.  Something that I can convince myself that I NEED, even if I really don't.  Maybe it's because I want to do something different with my time (desire to add just a little exercise during these cold months).  But I don't really need any thing to do that.  I've got a stairwell in my home that's easy access and pretty quiet.  I have an exercise ball that is currently deflated to save space.  I have exercise videos and a step to use in front of the the TV.  I have videos via Netflix streaming that I have barely even explored.  I have running shoes and a quiet neighborhood.  I have Walk Away the Pounds.  I have Wii Fit and Wii Fit Plus AND Active Life Explorer, which can accommodate up to 8 people at one time. 
This bug is really nasty because it's telling me that I need a treadmill

or a kids balance ball

or a new TV to watch exercise videos on

And it does not help that my birthday is coming up in a month and I think most of these things could be called early birthday presents, just to justify them even more.  But I don't need them.  I don't need them at all.  Because I have enough stuff already.  I've more than proven that having more stuff does not encourage me to exercise more. In fact, if I remember correctly, the times in my life that I have exercised the most is when my fitness equipment included a pair of cotton socks and some running shoes.

Maybe I could use a new pair ;-)
