Oh No He Didn't!

Did I just hear Bob Harper tell his new Blue Team to chew gum to stave off sweet cravings? Well where have I heard that before? Oh yeah I said that HERE! As if you needed any more proof that I am indeed a Bad Ass!

Orbit Sweet Mint is the best gum out there, period. I chew it all day long. Although, since my eating habits suck right now, I'm just chewing it because I like it, not because I'm fighting off cravings. Man, if it weren't for the gym I'd be a blob right now.

Orbit Sweet Mint is pretty awesome. But I like the cinnamon too (maybe mostly because Chris doesn't like it so I actually get some!).

Tell me about it! I only discovered this flavor about a month ago... fantastic... and it really does solve my eating because I'm bored, procrastinating, need a finisher, etc.

I'm going to have to look for the cinnamon next time I'm at Target... I don't think I've seen it before... and I am a huge cinnamon fan! Mr F did abscond with a big 3 pack of sweet mint the other day so I know exactly what you are talking about.
By the way how do you pronounce your name? Is it like Michelle - ine? I've never seen your name before :)

Orbit gum rocks. Isn't The Biggest Loser so motivating? It actually got me to set my alarm for 6:01 this morning. The bad news is that I didn't end up exercising, which was the whole point, but I really am going to try! Back to The Biggest Loser. I watch them work so hard and I feel so happy for them when they weigh-in. I get choked up multiple times whenever I watch. Last night was the first one I've caught this season. I always feel so bad that someone has to get kicked off b/c I worry that they won't be able to sustain it on their own. Amber seemed pretty bitchy, so I guess if someone had to go, maybe it was good that it was her. But I hate watching them get kicked off. Especially people with kids at home b/c I worry about their futures...I tuned in to that other show where the people are walking across the country--b-o-r-i-n-g. Just missing the kick-ass factor. Plus one guy who gets way too much airtime bugs the crap out of me! Anyway--how crazy was it when the Red team captain weighed and had lost 31 Freakin' pounds!! SIGN ME UP!

I'll write a post on this later... but I have been working out to Biggest Loser reruns all summer. It is on every night on the Style channel. I find working out to it to be totally motivational and has a lot to do with my workout success! Try it!

etbroderick said...

Well--we get, like, 8 channels on our cheap-o cable. So never heard of a channel called "Style." Oh, well. Ya--when I manage to drag my butt out of bed at 6:00ish there is nothing good to watch. Sometimes I get a cheesy infomercial about an exercise video or piece of equipment and I try to get pumped up imagining myself skinny and fit like the women on TV! Hilarious. I've been meaning to ask--are you running or walking or what?

Mrs. Furious said...

rent movies!
Matt works out to movies. I've got enough shows on Tivo that I don't do it that much but when I have its great.. no commercials.. so you are totally sucked in and the time flies!

I walk, I only run when say... there is a gunman in the grocery store ;)... my knees are too bad for that. I actually walk relatively slow.. 3.0 but I alternate my incline every 1/12th mile. I started alternating every 1/4 mile 0, 3, 6, 3, 0...repeat and doing 30-35 min. Now I do 0,7,0..7,0,7...repeat so within each 1/4 mile I change it up 3x and workout 60-70 min. you burn more this way... it keeps you at a lower fat burn level. It also keeps me from getting bored. And let me tell you my legs are unbelievably toned.. no cellulite at all! I'm short so 3.0 w/ the inclines still feels hard.. normal people might need to go a little faster. I definitely couldn't maintain a conversation.

That stack of movies from the library just isn't burning the calories the way they should...

What's that? I have to put them in the DVD player and then get on the treadmill?

It's been so long since I've successfully executed my plans (at least a few weeks) that I can't believe you even gave me credit for doing it.

At least I rode my bike to work again today.

Mrs. Furious said...

well i was giving you created for the thought.. Dude I'm down to 118.8 today... mother fucking unbelievable!

The cinnamon version is Orbit Cinnamint. It's in a red package.

By the way how do you pronounce your name? Is it like Michelle - ine?
It's pronounced like mish-a-leen with the accent on the first syllable. I've met a few others, believe it or not. As a matter of fact, Sean Connery's wife is a Michelline, although I believe she misspells it as Micheline:)

At least I rode my bike to work again today. LOL! I have a 35 mile drive on the interstate to work. One way. And it took 50 minutes today. How long is your drive/bike trip?

Mrs. Furious said...

How long is your drive/bike trip?
His office is only 6.8 miles away. It takes him about 25-30 min which is pretty much exactly how long it takes to drive that same distance.

Cinnamint... ah yes... I have seen it and was afraid of what that meant.
