    The Importance of walking (Enjoy)

    The Importance of walking

    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 $4,000 per month. (and that's on the low side!)

    My grandpa started walking
    five miles a day when he was 60.
    Now he's 97 years old
    and we have no idea where the hell 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 250 bucks.
    Haven't lost a pound.
    Apparently you have to go there!

    Every time I hear the dirty word 'exercise',
    I wash my mouth out with chocolate.

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

    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.

    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.


    Every time I start thinking too much
    about how I look,
    I just find a pub with a Happy Hour
    and by the time I leave,
    I look just fine.

    Today I bent the truth to be kind, and I have no regret, For I am far surer of what is kind than I am of what is true.

    That really scared me! Think I'll just sit and sew and eat chocolate bon-bons!
    Never regret growing older, its a privilege denied to many.
    Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.

    Careful on those chocolates, dark chocolate that is... they CAN be good for you:

    Heart Health Benefits of Dark Chocolate:
    Dark chocolate is good for your heart. A small bar of it everyday can help keep your heart and cardiovascular system running well. Two heart health benefits of dark chocolate are:

    •Lower Blood Pressure: Studies have shown that consuming a small bar of dark chocolate everyday can reduce blood pressure in individuals with high blood pressure.
    •Lower Cholesterol: Dark chocolate has also been shown to reduce LDL cholesterol (the bad cholesterol) by up to 10 percent.

    T is it True? H is it Helpful? I is it Inspiring? N is it Necessary? K is it Kind?

    Too funny! Everytime I see a news story of someone dropping dead in a marathon or dying on their exercise machine I say to my husband , "Aha, exercise kills!" I know, we all have to do it but don't you hate it?

    Thanks for the funny. Good thing for me that I can eat some dark chocolate and not feel guilty.
