and the best thing is.....I spent less that £20 on the lot.
But now of course our shopping budget has been cut in half so Ive been looking into my imaginery cook book of "1001 ways to eat your dog, er, I mean furniture" (just add salt I guess).
I meant to mention that I started back the gym this week.
People in the Wigan area may have been experiencing seismic activity as a result of my treadmill sessions. Whilst my shock absorber sports bra takes most of the energy from the exertion, I note that the rivets of the gyms steel girders are becoming more loose on every visit. This is not fair to the other members of Total Fitness and to add insult to injury, I am ashamed of my reflection whilst in the process (think black eyes, face like a ribena berry and sweat spurting out the top of my head like a fountain. Nice).
Im on a fitness campaing of major proportions.
I have to.
Really, I do.
They say the camera adds 10lbs. Only 10lbs onto this whale blubberness will not look good and I don't think everyone in the UK has wide screen tellies neither (I go for a screen test next Friday. Must get manicure. Must retouch my roots. Must stop swearing).
To help shift my poundage and prevent future gym visits turning out to be a health and saftey issue I needed to seek an alternative.
And whilst still in HMV I spied this.Ive been meaning to buy one for flippin ages but couldn't justify buying the trainers that are supposed to go with it.
Its a Nike + iPod running thingy.
If you do not know what it does, allow me to tell you briefly.
You pop the apple nuggetty bit in a secret compartment in your "Nike training shoe" and attach the iPod bit into your iPod and it talks to you and trains you to run as well as gather the stats of your efforts.
I figured that by shoving the Appley bit in your sock for time being, you can save yourself 60 sheets in cash by not buying the trainers. In the meantime, I wait for a little attachment from Amazon which cost £5 that you fit to your laces and makes the nuggety thing a little more secure than bobbling about in your hosiery.
It only cost £20 and will improve my running schedule whilst I can still listen to my favourite running tracks.
Food budget gone down to zero now.
And Im peckish.
Now where is my dog?
