Importance of Walking

Walking 20 minutes can add to your life.
This enables you at 85 years old to spend an additional 5 months in a nursing
home at $7000 per month.

My grandpa started walking five miles a day when he was 60.
Now he's 97 years old and we don't know where 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 occasionally.

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, they'll say, 'Well, he looks good doesn't he?'

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. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

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.

I really like the one that explains why we get heavier as we age. I'm going to remember that.

Everything looks better after happy hour!

Oh I love happy hour. It's usually with a nice rum~n~coke when the kids go to bed!

AMEN SISTA! I have to say that we put way too much emphasis on this, I have gone through a lot of body changes recently, mostly through change of diet, and as much as I like to pretend to like to work out... I would rather have an hour on my bed!

Age does take it's toll on us all thats why they invented happy hour..or three.
The weight issue isn't too bad,whenever that skinny girl inside me starts screaming to get out I can usually shut her up with chocolate..LOL!

P.S. I hope you find your grandpa.

Walking is however, one exercise that is mostly injury-free and bebeficial to everyone. I do it a lot.

I'm totally getting this. I love to walk and then celebrate my success with happy hour but I guess that wipes out the calorie loss. Damn.
