Sunday Musings #200

Research has shown that laughing for two minutes is just as healthy as a twenty minute jog. So now I’m sitting in the park laughing at all the joggers.

At this time of year I stop worrying about all the exercising and dieting. Yeah, we may eat, drink and be merry, but we also dash around like headless chickens trying to get everything done.

I figure it balances out in the end!

 

The Double Apple Gene

Double Apple Gene

Double Apple Gene

I suffer from the double apple gene! Never heard of it? Well, you probably know that people with a pear-shaped figure are supposed to be healthier and live longer than those with an apple-shaped figure? Both my parents were apple-shaped – so I must have inherited the Double Apple Gene!

It simply means that while a normal person eats chocolate, and gains a little weight, us poor “doubles” only have to think about chocolate to pile on the kilos.

It’s OK though. As long as I eat more healthy food than I care for, eat less yummy food than I’d like, and exercise way more than I want to – then I can maintain my weight.

As for apples – I don’t really care for them! So, how do I keep the doctor away?

Vodka – of course!
