Okay, I’ve complained about being a fat ass before. Before you start saying things like “Oh, but you look so skinny in pictures!”, let me say that I’m not overweight, but I am out of shape…WAY out of shape, and could stand to lose a good 15 pounds or so. I’m so out of shape that I have cellulite on my knees and refuse to wear skirts above my knee or any kinds of shorts. Sigh.
My problem? I have no willpower. A year ago, I wrote about having no willpower…it’s a funny post, and if you have an extra few minutes you should read it. I just giggled again when I found it.
Anyways, I have to do something about it. Alli is NOT something I want to try again. So I have decided to just eat right…not diet necessarily, but eat better. I also need to start exercising. The dreaded “E” word. Something that I hate doing until I start doing it and get in the habit. But I have to do it because I want to get in a bathing suit this year without wearing a burka-like cover-up!
The stroller I have right now is a beast – the thing is huge. It’s fine for shopping and being out and about. It is not fine for trying to exercise, especially when I have to haul both kids around in it, too. It’s quite possible the thing weighs as much as I do.
So I’ve decided I need to invest in a jogging stroller. Something easy to maneuver, that doesn’t weigh as much as I do, and that can handle different types of surfaces…the road, rocks, the sand, etc.
I found a site called Cymax and they sell strollers; all different kinds of strollers in all different price ranges, including the jogging strollers that I have been eyeing. And I was SO excited to find that they have double jogging strollers at a reasonable price!
My issue now is which one to purchase? I’m one of those people that likes to read reviews and see how many stars a product gets before I buy it. The site does have customer reviews and it does show awards that strollers have received, but no stars. But I can live with that. I spent a lot of time reading reviews, checking prices, cross-checking against other site’s prices, and what I found was the bob stroller.
While they are a bit pricey, the stroller seems completely worth the cost – and the reviewers seem to agree. I was looking at the BOB Gear 2011 Sport Utility Duallie Baby Stroller. It has incredible stability, can go anywhere, and is lightweight…exactly what I am looking for. The list price is $684, but on the Cymax site they sell it for $479. And if I use the stroller as my everyday stroller, I could sell the beast of a stroller I currently have and put the money towards the Cadillac of jogging strollers.
If I pay that much for a stroller, it better make me skinny! I’m thinking that if I buy it, I’ll have to use it so I don’t waste my money!Hmmmm….decisions, decisions.
Do you have a jogging stroller? Do you have a BOB stroller? I need some input here, people!
