Good Idea or Bad Idea?

by Heather on February 23, 2010

Hey guys!  Hope your Tuesday’s been a good one :)  Thanks so much for all of your uplifting comments about what you want to see more of on the blog…you really know how to make a girl smile!  I’ll just keep doin’ what I’m doin’ :)

Lunch today was another Hot Chile Grilled Cheese made in the toaster oven, and a super juicy tangelo!

This was such a great lunch…I really can’t get over how awesome this sandwich is!  I think I said it before, but it’s basically a deconstructed chile relleno, and it’s face-rocking good!  You should go make it now :)  Tonight we’re going to our community group, and I’m taking a FREE SALAD that I got from lunch just in case there’s nothing meat-free being eaten.  I bet there’ll be something good, but I’m gonna take it just in case!  I made a little somethin’ last night that I’ll be sharing later, but it’s a secret still ;)

SO, on to the reason for the title of this post.  Please observe the item wrapped around the waist here:

NOTE: This is the only picture of this I could find.

This picture is NOT so that everyone can check this guy out.  I was on my walk today and kept having to remind myself to pull my abdominal muscles in, and started to get pretty frustrated with myself.  Now, I know these bands are mainly marketed as “slimming you down” by sweating out all the water in your stomach (really guys?  really?), but I was thinking about hitting up Walmart for one for the sole purpose of wearing it as a reminder to keep my core strong and firm.  I don’t want to wear it to lose weight or anything, but mainly as a way to strengthen my core.

What are your thoughts on this?  Do you think it would be a better idea to just get over it and constantly remind myself?  What fitness products have you tried?  Which ones have worked?  Which ones haven’t? Confession:  I’ve actually owned one of these bad boys before, and although it didn’t make me “lose weight” in just my stomach, I do feel that it helped me to remember to pull my core in during a workout!
