As some of you know, my wife and I work out two to three times a week (she does more than that, I’m ashamed to say). She has lost over 30 pounds, and I have lost around 20, and we are maintaining our “ideal” weight. So when we get something like the below in an email, we have to share.
- 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.
- 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 he is.
- I like long walks, especially when they are taken by people who annoy me.
- The only reason I would take up walking is so that I could hear heavy breathing again.
- I have to walk early in the morning, before my brain figures out what I’m doing.
- I joined a health club last year, spent about 400 bucks. I haven’t lost a pound. Apparently you have to actually go there.
- Every time I hear the dirty word ‘exercise’, I wash my mouth out with chocolate.
- The advantage of exercising every day is so when you die, they’ll say, “Well, he looks good, doesn’t he.”
- If you are going to try cross-country skiing, start with a small country.
- I know I got a lot of exercise the last few years, just getting over the hill was enough.
- 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.
- Every time I start thinking too much about how I look, I just find a Happy Hour and by the time I leave, I look just fine.
You could run this over to your friends, but just e-mail it to them.
