My Flab Is Snickering Again…Gina’s Favorites

I’m traveling with my family this week, so to keep you in giggles, I’ve loaded up some of my favorite travel posts.  Laugh along with this Gina’s Favorites throwback.

My Flab Is Snickering Again

See all those sad people around you?  They’re the ones trying to adopt healthy habits.

This time of year nearly everyone is trying to get healthy.  That’s why there’s so much road rage on the freeways, at the grocery store, and in the Jelly Belly Factory parking Lot.

I’ve been caught up in The War Against Flab just like everyone else.

In the name of Good Health, I parked in the farthest space from the door when we went to the ice cream parlor.

When we returned, our van was boxed in by two 18-wheelers, a Prius, and a minivan. I almost threw my triple cone at them.  Almost.

I’m pretty sure I heard my flab snickering.

Again in the name of Good Health, I decided to take the stairs instead of the escalator to get to my gym.

It took the combined power of me and 2 trainers to shove the door to the stairway open.  One of the trainers remarked that he didn’t think anyone had opened that door since the building was constructed.  Since the stairs inside were covered with enough cobwebs to be a set for the next Indiana Jones movie, I was inclined to believe him.

The other trainer said, “I’m not sure those stairs even work.”  I think he may have dropped a barbell on his head earlier.

I’m pretty sure I heard my flab snickering.

The soup wasn’t bad. I admit that, before you heat it up, it’s a little bland, kind of reminiscent of tepid water. But, after you heat it up, it takes on a whole new attitude. It tastes just like chunky hot water. Did I really buy a pack of 10 cans of this? Stupid CostCo.

It’s going to take a big handful of cheese, 6 or 8 crackers, and a spoonful of salt to make it almost palatable.

I definitely heard my flab snickering that time.

Laugh Out loud!

What’s you strategy for fighting the battle of the bulge?  Are you winning?  Do you take the stairs or the escalator?  And, why does the hand rail move faster than the steps on those things?  Shoot me a comment.  I’m looking forward to hearing all about it.

Oh this made me laugh so hard, esp. the efforts to resuscitate bad soup. I recently tried the PALEO diet, AKA, the Caveman diet. The only benefit was a good blog post for me. I could have never made it as a cave woman.
