Monday Giggles


I just returned from having lunch with my husband and a potential employee only to find this in an e-mail sent to me by one of my close friends. I had to laugh because with the new year it seems like everyone (no matter how thin or thick) makes a resolution to eat healthier and start exercising. I am no exception.

I have broken that resolution at least twelve of the fourteen days so far. Not good. But in my defense I did order the kids meal today at Culvers! And I only ate about three fries because I was getting full from my cheeseburger and wanted to save room for my chocolate custard. Now don't scold me...I had them put strawberries on top. You know, so I could check off fruit group along with dairy at the same time! I like to kill two birds with one stone whenever possible. *I pat myself on the back for being so efficient* LOL!

In all truthfulness I have to say that I do feel better when I am at least doing my physical therapy. I normally have to sleep on my back because of restrictions with my new bionicness, but I decided to lay on my side and see if I could lift my leg straight up. Something I haven't been able to do for about eight years. Well, I did it as easy as eating a Hershey bar! It just went up without a hitch. I couldn't believe it! And this week I have finally been able to get in my van all by myself with no help whatsoever. Now how cool is that? Finally, a little bit of independence has come my way. Now if I could just get motivated to take that independence to the gym!

Exercise


- I have to exercise early in the morning before my brain figures out what I'm doing.


- I like long walks, especially when they are taken by people who annoy me.

- I have flabby thighs, but fortunately my stomach covers them.


- The advantage of exercising every day is that you die healthier.


- If you are going to try cross-country skiing, start with a small country.


- Walking can add minutes to your life. This enables you at 85 years old to spend an additional 5 months in a nursing home at $5000 per month.


- My grandmother started walking five miles a day when she was 60. Now she's 97 years old and we don't know where on earth she is.


- The only reason I would take up exercising is so that I could hear heavy breathing again.


- I joined a health club last year, spent about 400 bucks. Haven't lost a pound. Apparently you have to go there.


- I don't exercise because it makes the ice jump right out of my glass.
