Today Dave share's about his new health kick (and why he decided enough is enough). He also talks about the demise of Thanksgiving, weird “Christmas” songs.
I'm in a Dietbet that if I can lose 10% of my body weight in 6 months I have a shot at earning some cash. How much? There is $175350 in the pot with 1304 people fighting for it. For more information check out Dietbet.com
So far I'm down 3 lbs.
Watching Thanksgiving fade Away
I remember when Sunday's stores were closed, then (greed) stores decided to stay open. Then we had “Black Friday” the day after thanksgiving when the majority of the USA has the day off to go shopping. Then black Friday
started at 10 am. Then 9 am. Then 4 am. Now if you didn't notice it, Black Friday starts on Thursday night about 8. We are trading in our time with our family where we are supposed to be thankful for what we have and we are trading it in to to have things that we think will make our life better- but won't.
When I was at Target the associated wanted to know if I wanted to open up a credit card to pay for my $2.54 bill. Really? I could save 5%. What will I do with that 13 cents? Sure let me sign up so you can charge me 30% interest. That is hard to fathom.
The Spending Society
If you haven't checked, some are your credit cards are charging 30%. That means is most of your money is going to pay for credit card bills 30% of your hard earned money is being lit on fire because you couldn't wait. In the future I don't think we will potty train our children as we won't want them to wait to do anything.
I Broke My Back – Again
Why am I getting into shape? Because I tore every muscle in my upper body. Doing what? Drying off. Yep. Drying off with a towel. One wrong turn and my entire body just froze up. I said to myself ENOUGH is ENOUGH!
I was looking at the iTunes reviews of the Logical Weight Loss podcast, and one review said, “Dave you've been doing this podcast for three years and you've set a new record for being heavy.” Ouch. I've always tried to be a person of integrity and its just time to poop or get off the pot.
Why Are These Christmas Songs?
I was listening to “My Favorite Things,” and of course later “Marshmallow World” (the worst Christmas song ever). This are just beyond cheesy.
