The Importance of Walking
They say that doing some walking can add 5 minutes to your life for every day you do it. This can enable you, at 85 years old, to spend an up to an additional eight months in a nursing home at $11,000 per month.
My grandpa started walking five miles a day when he was 70. Now he's 77 and we don't have any 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 400 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, your friends can say, "Well she looks good, doesn't she?"
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.
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.
