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 ;-)
