Health And Fitness Resolutions In Southwest Oklahoma

squirrel meme

a funny meme via somewhere on the internet for all of us who might’ve overindulged during the holidays

Gramps subscribes to an excellent farm publication called Farm Show Magazine. The editor usually has some pithy observations and funny jokes along with many helpful articles. (One of the most interesting articles last issue was entitled, Clock Powered By Dead Flies, and one of the jokes went a little bit like this:

Farmer Guy 1: I just heard something scary…twenty-five percent of women in the US are being treated for mental illness.

Farmer Guy 2: Great. That means seventy-five percent of them are running around untreated.

Oh, ha, ha. That’s SO hilarious.)

Okay…wait. What was I wanting to talk about?

Oh, right…fat. (Which reminds me of something funny I heard a woman say one time as she rolled her eyes: “If that guy wanted to lose forty-pounds of ugly fat, he could just cut off his head.”)

Let’s see, now…Oh, yes. Fitness and Farm Show.

The Farm Show editor also made a few health and fitness observations last issue.

  • If walking were good for your health, the postman (or woman) would be immortal

  • A whale swims all day, only eats fish and drinks water, but is still fat.

  • A rabbit runs and hops all day long but only lives–at most–fifteen years.

  • A tortoise doesn’t run and does mostly nothing, yet it lives for 150 years.

Just something to think about while we map out New Year’s fitness resolutions. And while we’re at it, don’t forget this:

Eat right, exercise, die anyway

Until next time, God bless all y’all in your resolutions, and as you get back in the groove after the holidays, enjoy 4 Him singing Psalm 112 to help us kick off a new year.

  1. I’m in the lose weight mode for my health. I need to spend more time out on the farm and less on my computer! Happy New Year Danni.

    • I hear you, Liz. Something weird has happened in my late forties–my recliner has developed the power to swallow me alive. Especially when I need to be working. If I live another twenty or thirty years, I expect to be almost comatose.
      I hope you, and your girls, and your critters have a wonderful 2014 down there in New Zealand. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Ha! Thanks for starting this cold day with a chuckle, Danni. I no longer make dieting resolutions. Futile. And misery-inducing. Why do we do it? No idea. (Sorry I’ve been MIA and a bad comment-er–but I’m back! Happy New Year!)

    • My resolutions are usually futile, for sure. Such as, “This year I’m going to put all my pictures in albums” or, “I’m going to stop piling laundry on my chair”. ๐Ÿ˜€
      I’m glad you unplugged a little. Hope you had an awesome break. Happy New Year to you and yours, too. ๐Ÿ™‚

Go ahead, make my day. Add your thoughts
