I regret to inform you that I have recently finally learned that my corporeal form works better and feels better if I actually exercise, just like everyone’s told me for 40-some years. I resent this! I do not want to work out, I want to sit around and eat hot dogs and watch TV. And yet! I also want to be a spry old lady, the better to solve the murders I assume I’ll find all around me, based on pop culture, so I guess I need to take care of myself. And the way I do it is BRIBERY: I watch Real Housewives on the treadmill, and also I reward myself with cute gym clothes. So please help me bribe myself: Tell me all your very best gym/workout related paraphernalia: Bags! Shoes! Shorts! Leggings! Stuff I don’t even know about!
