Solution Solver....

Monday, April 20, 2009......

I was going to entitle this blog Problem Solver, but when I think back at some of my suggestions I've offered to people, I believe I may not actually solve their original problem, but create new ones with my advice.

I never really realized how often my suggestions were 'crap' until my sister pointed this out to me several months ago. Personally, I think them to be great and have listed just a few of my recent wisdom tidbits.

sister: I really hope sports store sells kettlebells. I really liked my class and want to incorporate it into my workout.

me: If they don't, create a makeshift harnesses for each kitty with purse handles and use them. They weigh 10 lbs.

friend: I really want to run this 1/2 marathon, but I realize most of my serious training would have to be done when cold out....and I couldn't drink...

me: Get a video game and do a virtual 1/2 marathon. You can stay toasty warm and drink champagne as you're crossing the finish line.

I'd like to say my solutions are constructive, but no one agrees with me. I wonder why.

My Wii Fit actually does have a running program that's not bad at all- a cute little virtual puppy runs with you and everything. :-)

I don't know... I think with a few pointers you could be the next Jillian Michaels. You know, we could have a new reality show called "Pack it On"... in our show people would have to gain weight and you could be the trainer:

"Visualize that you are running, concentrate on cardio... but don't actually do it, you moron!!! UGH, I'm so disappointed in you!"

"No dumb bells? That's OK, pet your cat instead..."

I know I'd watch!!!
