Exercise

I believe exercise is way overrated, after all, look at the number of toned, fit, perfectly healthy people who drop dead every day! As I sit here eating my Snickers® bar (reduced fat I might add – as I’m only eating half the bar, I ate the other half yesterday), I’ve been contemplating the pros and cons of exercise. Pro – if I exercise, I won’t have cellulite. Con – I’m going to sweat. Pro – I won’t be out of breath after climbing 2 flights of stairs. Con – gym memberships are expensive AND other people will see me sweat. Pro – I can go without hose in the summer because my calves will be toned. Con – I do that anyway and offend many. Pro – I will have more energy. Con – that translates to having the energy to do more work. Pro – I really can’t think of anything else, but my list of “cons” is endless.

Now, I’m not an advocate for being lazy and not exercising at all, I just don’t believe in the rigorous stuff. Bending down to put on my shoes constitutes exercise -- right, after all, I’m NOT just standing there, I am moving. Also, when I take the laundry downstairs, I am exercising by walking up and down the stairs. So, it’s not like I'm not getting any exercise and I figure when God is ready to bring me home, He’s going to take me. I just want to make sure it’s not while I’m on a treadmill or in the middle of my 42nd abdominal crunch trying to stay healthy!

It's so great to have you on here. I knew from reading your MySpace blogs that you had something entertaining and worth reading to share. As far as exercise goes I hate it, but part of my job is trying to stay in shape so until I retire I guess I have to exercise and watch what I eat. I loved the pros and cons and agree you can get plenty of exercise doing household chores. Great blog!
