Fit Flops

This is fast turning into a once a week blog isn't it.......I must remedy that!

I'm currently aching all over (no, not swine flu - or as Mac calls it "swing flu") but because of a present from my beloved husband. When he presented me with a pair of Fit Flops as a reward for getting - ahem, drum roll please - 97% on my First Aid course I wasn't sure whether to hit him or not. What was he suggesting? I know that I could do with losing a few (!!!) pounds and toning up a tad but, quite frankly, I was a tidge insulted.

Not any longer. They are fabulous. I can't praise them highly enough. They tone you up whilst you are walking, making your leg and bum muscles work harder. They're ergonomic. And that's the extent of my knowledge on the subject. Apart from knowing that, after wearing them last Friday for half an hour whilst I walked Mac to school and back, I came back home, kicked them off and felt the buuuurn. And I mean buuuurn.....my buttocks (excuse my French) ached as if I'd done an extensive work out. And I'd stopped off at Ayres on the way back for a doughnut!

Bea, naturally, is horrified and is beseeching me to "get rid of them darling, its practically porn for your feet, it's ugly, offensive and......eurgh!". She's forbidden me to wear them in Dulwich (and therefore anywhere near her house) and resembled Davina McCall even more than she usually does (in tone and actions) when she came face to face with the offending items this evening. "Aaargh, how COULD you come to the DOOR wearing them? Eeeeeshk!" she squealed before running down the path and leaping into her chauffeur driven Mercedes.
I dread to think what she'd say now: I'm wearing my Fit Flops and my Slanket.

Personally I see nothing wrong with them as I'm a flipflop type of gal anyway. In fact - I do see the benefit besides the workout if there is one.....Your toes look more secure in those than in the ones I was wearing when I kicked the chair and it decided my toe looked better at a 90 degree angle. The toe must have been over the edge of that sandal at the time. Drats.

I've just heard of them this week and here you go sporting a pair. As for the slanket....um......Regal's been sporting those for a while. I have no comment on that fashion statement at all darling.

I must confess to owning a pair but I sing their praised for the glorious comfort they offer. Not sure if the 'fit' claims lie up to their promise but by jove I can walk for miles in those babies.
Mine are garish green. Love them!

These Fitflops do nothing to work you out sweetie. THESE PEOPLE ARE TELLING PORKIES!!!

And as for the Slanket? You have been shopping in those free glossy mags that come with the Sundays again haven't you.

I am coming straight over to de-clutter your space. Brace yourself, you are not going to enjoy it, and I am bringing Albena - clearly (I am not going to break a nail!).

Ooh, no, not another one converted to those horrid fitflop things. My DH also bought me a pair and I was not impressed. He may as well have said "put these on ya fat cow". I wore them once and even though they're ugly, I have to admit that they're very comfortable. But fitflops do not have any toning effect whatsoever. I've been wearing mine about the house and they don't do a thing for me.
