Normally, I complain and turn the channel. However, a couple years ago I happened upon one that caught my attention. Before I knew it, I was dialing the number and pulling out my credit card. Sheepishly, I confessed to Russ what I'd done that evening. I would love to tell you that he got equally excited about my new items due to arrive in 5-7 business days but he gave me the smirk. You know the smirk. The husband smirk.
This story has a happy ending. The "You can't live without this" product was a DVD serious entitled Turbo Jam. It's like a work-out dance party including songs like "Momma said Knock you out!". I mean, c'mon! Now, before you get all judgmental on my bad stewardship of $$, please know I have gotten my money's worth. Two times over, I've gotten my money's worth.
This workout is unlike anything I've ever done before. I've run half-marathons, taken kickboxing and other aerobic classes and spent a good many-a-night doing Sweatin' to the Oldies in high school. This series works muscles I wasn't aware I had and takes inches off where it seems impossible. I'm serious, peeps. I used it all last summer and then pretty consistently in Guate and I got down to the smallest size I've been in ten years.
I bring this up because I can't move today. I unearthed the goodness from a packed box in the basement and have climbed back on the wagon. And it hurts. Look out, skinny jeans, you're next...
Now, I don't normally do this, but I'm curious about people's experiences with another product. This may seem like a private issue to some, but if Tina Fey can talk about it on the red carpet before the Emmy's than I can blog about it. I'm just going to say it. Spanx. Who's used them? What's your happiness level? While visiting the in-laws, we were all drawn into another infomercial with a similar product and the results were amazing. Of course. But what's the reality? Do they actually work that well? And if so, why don't I already have them? Why doesn't everyone have them? Gimme details, blogees, details.
