The Importance of Walking...

Still a little down but am a teensy-weensy bit better. I think it was all the hugs I received yesterday in my comments.

Just got this in an email and thought you would enjoy it.


1. 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 $7000 per month.

2. My grandpa started walking five miles a day when he was 60. Now he's 97 years old and we don't know where 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 go there...

7. Every time I hear the dirty word 'exercise,' I wash my mouth out with chocolate. (My favorite.)

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, she looks good doesn't she."

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 that durn hill.

12. We all get heavier as we get older, because there's a lot more information in our heads. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

13. 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.

Fun thoughts for the day. I like the one about being heaver because we have more thoughts in our heads. I have not much I guess because I can't even remember the wording (o: Have a great, fun, happy, healthy DAY.

Sorry about deleting my comment. I had a few spelling errors. I thought I could type and talk at the same time. LOL I loved all of those and with everyone I read I laughed harder. Have a great evening.

Priceless! Thanks so much for sharing these. I'm going to print this out and hang it on my treadmill. :)

Here's a random {{{HUG}}} just to see if we can get you over the hump.
