Thereâ€™s nothing more exciting than the first day of spring . . . what can I say, I need to get out more. The Ides of March are now safely in the rear view mirror and the onset of warmer weather rapidly approaches on fuzzy feet. Here in California, that means beach excursions are right around the corner. Surveying the bathing suit landscape has made me realize that unless I want to be mistaken for a wayward whale, I may need to shed a few pounds before venturing outside in something less than a hazmat suit.
MatsMatsMats has already supplied my household with a veritable plethora of fine choices for svelting down my ample Orwellian figure. (Orson Wells NOT George Orwell) and I have written in the past of such items as the exercise ball, the fitness flooring and kids carpet.
Today I would like to expound on the virtues of (pause for dramatic effect) the workout glove.
If you are delaying the actual choice of exercise till you find the motivation to begin said regimen, nothing tells your ever-loving spouse that you are committed to the process of slenderizing oneself than buying matching workout gloves. MatsMatsMats has a HUGE selection of gloves to choose from. Everything from a delicate pink to a more manly camouflage.
If you know me, you know I prefer products that can be multi-purposed or re-purposed and these bad boys have â€œbatting glovesâ€ written all over them. Maybe even James Bond-esque driving gloves! (â€œYes, Miss Moneypenny, thatâ€™s shaken not stirredâ€)
The true purpose of these gloves is to use them in conjunction with weights to use a traditional approach to fitness. They also can be used to help cushion your hands when exercising, doing yoga, calisthenics or any other program that requires writhing on the floor gasping for breath.
Now that I have made that â€œfirst stepâ€, I have decided to reward my efforts by treating myself to a martini and an exploding laser watch
