Exercise More and Eat Less

Exercise More and Eat Better

Now that I’m over 70, the doctor wants me to come in for frequent checkups. I don’t know why, though: he always says the same thing. “You need to eat better and exercise more! Walking and swimming are especially good for you.” Worse, he wants me to cut out steak for fish and vegetables, and cut out beer for water.

That depressed me to no end. But I decided to think about it.

Well, I thought about it for hours, and here’s what I came up with.

If walking is good for your health, the postman would be immortal.

A whale swims all day, only eats fish, drinks lots of water — and “a whale” is what hugely fat people are called (by the insensitive boors, that is — not by me!)

A rabbit runs and hops and enjoys each day, and only eats vegetables — and a rabbit only lives for 15 years, tops.

But a tortoise doesn’t run around. It does practically nothing. Yet it lives for 450 years.

And he tells me to exercise and change my diet? I don’t think so! From now on, I’m not coming out of my house

You are what you eat

You Are What You Eat

A Doctor was addressing a large audience in Tampa.

“The material we put into our stomachs is enough to have killed most of us sitting here, years ago. Red meat is awful. Soft drinks corrode your stomach lining. Chinese food is loaded with MSG. High fat diets can be disastrous, and none of us realizes the long-term harm caused by the germs in our drinking water.

“But there is one thing that is the most dangerous of all, and we all have, or will, eat it. Would anyone care to guess what food causes the most grief and suffering for years after eating it?”

He noticed one man in the front row nodding knowingly.

“Yes?” the doctor says, asking the man to speak aloud.

The man replied, in a loud voice: “Wedding cake.”

Rules for Eating Chocolate

 

If you’ve got melted chocolate all over your
hands, you’re eating it too
slowly.
*
Chocolate covered raisins, cherries, orange slices &
strawberries all count as fruit, so eat as many as you
want.


*
The problem: How to get 2 pounds of chocolate home
from the store in hot car. The solution: Eat it in the parking
lot.
*
Diet tip: Eat a chocolate bar before each meal. It’ll
take the edge off your appetite and you’ll eat
less.
*
A nice box of chocolates can provide your total daily
intake of calories in one place. Isn’t that
handy?
*
If calories are an issue, store your chocolate on top
of the fridge. Calories are afraid of heights, and they
will jump out of the chocolate to protect
themselves.
*
If I eat equal amounts of dark chocolate and white
chocolate, is that a balanced diet? Don’t they actually
counteract each other?
*
Chocolate has many preservatives. Preservatives make you look
younger.
*
Q. Why is there no such organization as Chocoholics Anonymous?
A. Because no one wants to quit

The Tourists

Sarah and the
Tourists

Two tourists were driving through Louisiana.
As they were approaching
Natchitoches, they started arguing about the pronunciation of the
town.

They argued back and forth until they stopped for lunch. As they stood
at
the counter, one tourist asked Sarah, the employee, “Before we order,
could you please settle an argument for us? Would you please pronounce
where we are… very slowly?”

Sarah leaned over the counter and said, “Burrrrrrrr, gerrrrrrr,
Kiiiiing.”

The Diet

Sarah and the
Diet

Sarah is terribly overweight, so her doctor
puts her on a diet. “I
want you to eat regularly for two days, then skip a day, and
repeat this procedure for two weeks. The next time I see you, you’ll
have lost at least five pounds.”

When Sarah returns, she’s lost nearly 20 pounds.

“Why, that’s amazing!” the doctor says. “Did you follow my
instructions?”

Sarah nods. “I’ll tell you, though, I thought I was going to
drop dead that third day.”

“From hunger, you mean?”

“No, from skipping.”

Tips for staying Young

Tips For Staying
Young

1. Throw out nonessential numbers. This includes
age, weight
and height. Let the doctor worry about them. That is why you
pay him/her.

2. Keep only cheerful friends. The grouches
pull you down.

3. Keep learning. Learn more about the
computer, crafts,
gardening, whatever. Never let the brain idle. “An idle mind
is the devil’s workshop;” the devil’s name is
Alzheimer’s.

4. Enjoy the simple things. When the children
are young,
that is all that you can afford. When they are in college,
that is all that you can afford. When you are on retirement,
that is all that you can afford!

5. Laugh often, long and loud. Laugh until
you gasp for breath.
Laugh so much that you can be tracked in the store by your
distinctive laughter.

6. The tears happen. Endure, grieve, and
move on. The only
person who is with us our entire life, is ourselves. Be alive
while you are alive, don’t put out a mailbox on the highway
of death and just wait in residence for your mail.

7. Surround yourself with what you love,
whether it is family,
pets, keepsakes, music, plants, hobbies, whatever. Your
home is your refuge.

8. Cherish your health. If it is good,
preserve it. If it is unstable,
improve it. If it is beyond what you can improve, get
help.

9. Don’t take guilt trips. Go to the mall,
the next county, a
foreign country, but not to guilt country.

10. Tell the people you love, that you
love them, at every
opportunity.

AND ALWAYS REMEMBER, Life is not measured
by the
number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take
our breath away.
