Friday Funnies

The Importance of Walking as Exercise

I recently start taking a walk in the evening with my husband.  I desperately really need to get in shape!  When I received this  email I had to laugh.  Hope you enjoy these great benefits for walking!smile_regular




♥ Each time you go for a walk, you 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.

♥ 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.

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

♥ 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. Haven't lost a pound. Apparently you have to go there.

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

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

♥ I know I got a lot of exercise the last few years, just to get 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.

♥ They say you can't really know someone until you walk a mile in their shoes. I say if they've got itsy-bitsy feet or some kind of foot disease, I don't wanna know 'em!

Join us today over at The Homesteaders Heart for more fun and laughter!  (Don’t we all need it?)

Wow, amazing to think how much information I must have in my head! What an encouraging perspective. LOL :)

Stephanie said...

Hehe! As a matter of fact, I was supposed to be heading to the YMCA for a little exercise when I decided to read your blog instead. AND I am wanting wash my mouth out with the Hershey Kisses that are downstairs for even thinking about working out. Phew...glad the urge to go exercise has passed!

I will go walking, IF you go walking. We can't walk together, but we can both go for a walk, right?

This is perfect for me today! I'm laughing because I was going to go to the gym. Instead I went outside and took pictures. Does that burn calories focusing on objects? Ha..

Angie said...

I LOVED that! I think I NEED to wash my mouth out with chocolate...just because it seems like the BEST thing to do!

Raise Them Up said...

Oh my word, I love this! I especially liked the one about not being able to find the grandpa! LOL! Thanks for the laughs!

Sherry said...

Esthermay said...

These are GREAT!
I must share them with my husband later tonight!
I especially appreciate the washing with chocolate.

We shall be eating said washing agent together in bed when I share these with him! hehehe

Christina said...

The nursing home one had me cracking up. Who needs to spend the extra money for that. Such a good reason not to walk.

Faithful Froggers said...

Those were too funny . . . especially since I have had no motivation to exercise lately. :)

I am so sorry I haven't been by lately. I got drawn into the world of FB and haven't been able to figure out how to keep up with both blogging & FB. :) FB is just so much quicker - but I NEED your blogging posts - always so inspirational.

LOVE the picture of your grandson in the post below. Can he get any cuter?

Hope you have a beautiful weekend with your family. Keep walking! :)

SophieMae said...

LOL! Love 'em! And am going to live by them...


Have a JESUS-filled day! ^i^

Irritable Mother said...

OK, thanks, Susan. The first time I meet you, you have successfully gotten my children to think I'm even more weird than they thought before.
I read this walking list aloud to them because they wanted to know why I was laughing. Now they're staring at me with eyes that say, "Yeah, Mom. Whatever."
Thanks, Susan. I needed that.
*big grin*

Melanie said...

These are funny, Susan! I'm a BIG walker.. definitely my exercise of choice.
