Yesterday, I talked about some of the cookbooks I asked for this Christmas. Here’s the other half of my list, which is focused more on fitness and discipline:
Okay, I know I said all you need to lose weight is walking. I didn’t lie! There are plenty of other tools out there that can you help you in your weight loss journey. And I picked a balance ball kit. I’m basically trying to take advantage of all the time I spend stationed in front of the TV by sitting on a balance ball instead of the couch. It gives you a nice little ab workout, so I’ve heard, so I’m going to give it a try! Couldn’t hurt, right?
I’ve wanted a kitchen scale for a while now, so I figured it was time to go ahead and ask for one. This will really come in handy for measuring food that has its serving size in ounces or grams, because up until now I’ve just been guessing. Which I think isn’t helping my weight loss efforts any. I also want it for baking, because I know some recipes call for really specific measuring.
I swear I’m not trying to bring the 80’s back. But let’s face it, there really aren’t many workouts more effective than walking up the stairs. This is another tool I’m hoping to negate my couch potato-ness with. I doubt I’ll ever make it up to the highest step because I’m just not coordinated enough. But I definitely think it will be harder to avoid working out if I have this baby next to the couch.
So there you have it, my complete weightloss Christmas list. And here’s a gift for all you 90’s kids out there.
Merry Christmas, readers!
