I took a short vacation. It started Friday night and ended this morning. It wrapped itself around my fiance's birthday and at times I was moderate (diet cola instead of a margarita) and at times went with the flow (wine, cheesecake, and bread with dinner).
I'll catch up the daily posts after the superbowl and sometime on Monday. For now, I'll share a funny my brother sent me in the email. The author's unknown (as most of these posts go), but this harkens back to an earlier post and my fervent belief that when you're making a lifestyle change - i.e., changing your life - you gotta have a sense of humor about it all! Enjoy!
Importance of Walking - 12 steps to get you back on track
1/ Walking 20 minutes can add to your life. This enables you at 85 years old to spend an additional 5 months in a nursing home at $7000 per month.
2/ My grandpa started walking five miles a day when he was 60. Now he's 97 years old... and we haven't a clue where the hell he is.
3/ I like long walks, especially when they are taken by people who annoy me.
4/ The only reason I would take up walking is so that I could hear heavy breathing again.
5/ I have to walk early in the morning, before my brain figures out what I'm doing.
6/ I joined a health club last year, spent about 400 bucks. Haven't lost a pound. ...apparently you have to actually go there.
7/ Every time I hear the dirty word 'exercise', I wash my mouth out with chocolate.
8/ I do have flabby thighs, but fortunately my stomach covers them.
9/ The advantage of exercising every day is so when you die, they'll say, 'Well, he looks good doesn't he.'
10/ If you are going to try cross-country skiing, start with a small country.
11/ I know I got a lot of exercise the last few years,...... just getting over the hill was enough.
12/ We all get heavier as we get older, because there's a lot more information in our skulls. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
