My Flab Is Snickering Again

My Flab Is Snickering Again

by Gina Valley

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

These days 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.

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.

All it really needs is a big handful of cheese, 6 or 8 crackers, and a spoonful of salt.

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.

I Just got back from visiting friends in Calabasas and over the hill, both meanings, too. It ‘ain’t’ Monterey! If you add water it’s a long drink of water, a little bit salty with some chunks in it, too.

Been there with that, done that, disappointed with that, too.

I guess there’s a reason they usually put all of the fat and salt in there. It makes it taste good! Lol!

Thank you, Christy! I am so glad you liked it! I’m glad I’m not the only one who’s flab gives them attitude, too!

Remember the old saying: “No good deed goes unpunished” so I hope that in the name of “Good Health” you are not giving up, keep it up, at the end it is all well worth it.
Is your flab snickering??
Have a healthy week!!!

Thank you, Jay! I am not giving up. I am way too stubborn to give up on anything! Is my flab continuing to snicker? Of course! Lol! But, hopefully, I’ll get the last snicker!
