The Hot Mess Life

July 26, 2010

Oh no she di'int...

Sadly, yes.  Yes, I did.

I bought a Shake Weight.  I am writing this as I hang my head in shame.  I was even embarrassed when I purchased this at the Bed Bath and Beyond store.  I tried to go the line with no other customers and ran out as soon as I could. 
But, you know what?  My arms are sore after the first day.  So, maybe it does work?  Now, I know one try is not a very good indicator.  It could just be that I haven't used those muscles in a while and I just wasted 15 bux.  ( I had a coupon, I don't think I could pay full price for this) 

The biggest I reason I purchased this is because it was in my SELF magazine.   They even said they saw the SNL spoof, but that it did have some results behind the silliness  So, here I am.  Doing very provocative moves to try and gain more toned arms. 

I will be keeping you updated on my (if any) progress with this and if I recommend this you all.  Oh, and I am including the SNL spoof, because well, it is too funny not to include. 


  1. Bahahahaha! Underwater Barbie bought one this weekend too and we watched her do the video! She said her arms hurt too, so if it could get rid of my bus driver lady arms.... I'm going to get one!

    PS- Couldn't get the video to play :(

  2. Hey, I just saw your blog on Life of Meg :)
    hahaha the shake weight! Don't be ashamed - I secretly want to buy one myself, so you will have to update us on how it works out for you!

  3. Yay! So happy you joined the Mingle Monday parrttaaayyy! I'm excited to see your comment on which 2 blogs you visited!

  9. Found your blog from Mingle Monday over at Life of Meg! I have the shake weight and unfortunately around the time I started using it I f'ed up my left shoulder so have not been using it - although I want to I'm not sure if it was connected? Oh well! Super cute blog!
