I jump

As most of my reader know I do have that
silly side of me....
so indulge me
Since I have been seeing the docs so much lately
I can't tell you how many times they ask:
"Mrs.___ what do you do for exercise"?
that's a Easy one, and my stock answer:
"I get my exercise by JUMPING to Conclusions"
or Dr.Know---I am happy to say I "I reach for the SKY"
but truly m y favorite is:
"I get my exercise by JUMPING to Conclusions"
Do you have any I could add to my list of quick comebacks?
I am sure there are some clever comebacks...
give me a few more or lots more ,
to add to my list.

I don't have one for the exercise question but I have one for the weight comment. "That's not my weight, that's the gravitational force against my body."

I don't have any good comebacks like that. Those are good ones! Most days I find it exhausting just to take a bath, brush my teeth, make dinner, do laundry and wash the dishes, let alone anything "extra".

Great! now you have me going...

I RUN errands...and I do SIT UPS each time the alarm goes off...and some of my friends do TOE TOUCHES when they paint their nails!

I can't tell you how many Stair Steps I do going to the computer!

I love yours Deby...

Hmm 'I stretch

...the story a bit'

'I toss
....a salad every now and then'

'I tap
...my fingers in a bit of impatience'

I jog
...my brain when I do crosswords'

'I yoga
...in my forum on line about starwars'

'I skip
...my heart every time I see my husband'

'I race
...to the Lord in prayer'

'I do pullups
...whenever I get in my vehicle-5'0 makes me pullup'

that's it for a bit, oh my brain has to be this way...too!lol

These are so funny!

I'll have to use *Reaching for the Sky* when I go for my annual post transplant checkup next week because for sure they'll be asking me this question :o)
