For example, I HEART the trends & am fascinated by pop-culture.
Im intrigued by what takes off and becomes the next —to date myself— Pet Rock & what goes the way of the 8 Track or, more currently put, those mini-DVDs which never quite struck the American public’s fancy.
Im either an early adopter or I strive to be the last soul climbing on the band wagon (very. last.) simply because my late adopting makes me giggle (please to see CROCS and cross reference under Jibbitz).
All that to say I was one of the initial Live Strong bracelet purchasers from Nike (yeah, Im saying it.).
So early, in fact, I gave a bunch as gifts and heard from the recipients months later thanking me/saying (pretty clearly) that they’d not even opened them until now as they weren’t really sure (fingerquote) what to do with them (unFQ).
And then the bracelets were everywhere (including on the ankles of numberous tweens which this ole lady found quite creative!).
And then the bracelets were EVERYWHERE.
Every nonprofit, social organization, event, and clique had its own special rubber bracelet (please to also see ribbons. both fabric and car-magnets).
So played out.
What does *that mean*? (alltogethernow) MizFit is ready to jump on the bandwagon.
I give you the MizFit bracelet (emblazoned with that one word. hard to see on video and *subtle* in person):
The above is what Ive been testing on myself & a few real life friends (if by testing you mean be honest: does this motivate you when you wear it?—–which I do).
You see, while I am the MizFit—-Im also BabyMama, Wife & DayJobEmployee.
There are far more days than Id care to admit where I would really, really, truly, very much like to skip my cardio workout.
I was searching for a motivator.
A reminder, if you will, of my alter-ego (my inner superhero) & the fact that it doesnt matter if I feel like doing cardio——I do it.
For those who love me.
And (cue sappy music) for the MizFits.
This post started me thinking that, while it wont give you a NUMBER by which you can evaluate yourself (& all we know how I feel about that), perhaps a bracelet-reminder might be a small replacement for the scale.
On the days youre striving not to weigh.
A reminder that there are far more important things than numbers and that exercising & healthy eating is a gift you give to yourself (a theme to be expanded upon in this week’s viewer mail)
A nod to the fact that you’re not the only one struggling down this oft bumpy road to fitness and health, but that there’s a whole Bumbling Band along side you.
