I hope 2017 brings you much joy, and certainly lots of laughter. Many people resolve to lose weight and exercise more in the New Year. Let’s look at that, shall we?

  • The advantage of exercising every day is that you die healthier.
  • I have to exercise in the morning before my brain figures out what I’m doing.
  • If you want to take up cross-country skiing, start with a small country.
  • The trouble with jogging is that, by the time you realize you’re not in shape for it, it’s too far to walk back.
  • I tried to exercise but the ice cubes kept falling out of my glass.
  • A reason to smile: Every seven minutes of every day, someone in an aerobics class/spin class/Barre class pulls a hamstring.
  • Doctor to patient: “What fits your busy schedule better, exercising one hour a day or being dead 24 hours a day?”
  • I’ve exercised with women so thin that buzzards followed them to their cars.
  • The word ‘aerobics’ came about when the gym instructors got together and said: If we’re going to charge $10 an hour, we can’t call it “Jumping Up and Down.”
  • America has got to be the only country in the world where people need energy drinks to sit in front of a computer.
  • I’m 99% sure no one would run marathons if they weren’t allowed to talk about running marathons.
  • I forgot to post on Facebook that I was going to the gym, now this entire workout was a waste of time.
  • After exercising I always eat a pizza … just kidding, I don’t exercise.
  • Instead of the John, I call my bathroom, Jim. That way it sounds better when I tell friends I go to the Jim first thing every morning.

    […] y’all, we’re two weeks into the new year. As I mentioned in my first Monday of the year post, some of you might have resolved to exercise more and eat less. Whether or not you’ve stuck […]

    LOL! Great list, Irene. If I didn’t work out every day, I’d be a basket case. Happy New Year!

      Definitely. I like the plaque I’ve seen that says, “I didn’t go to the gym today, that makes 3 years in a row.” Cute.
