I have decided I am a truck.

I would have put up a WIP today, but didn't get a picture.  Maybe when I get finished... ?  (Hope.)

ANYWAY, you ask, why do I think I am a truck?  My diet and exercise routine.  (I think of the strangest things at 1 in the morning...)

  • I have four on the floor when I exercise. (2 feet, 2 poles). 
  • I get better "mileage" when I put in good "fuel".
  • I have a few dings and dents, but still "run" well.
  • I am carrying too much in the back...
  • My dog loves to go with me.
  • I can go over rough ground, but I tend to bounce a lot...
  • I can get 'there', from 'here', but it takes time and maintenance, and keeping on the move.
  • I hope to upgrade to a better looking, more fuel efficient model.

    I could also add that one of my relatives is Henry Ford (not that one, however...).
So, no matter if one is a 18 wheeler, or one of those little subcompacts, we can always take care of  ourselves, eating well, exercising, and drinking enough water.  (Amazing how something so simple can be such a pain in the butt an important part of life...)

So, fellow trucks...

HONK!  HONK! 

Let's go!!

(And I lost just shy of a pound this week.  Slow lane, but still moving!)

  6. Honking back, with a friendly wave added for good measure.

    I like your analogy. I once read something, before the internet age so I don't know if I could ever find it again, about how our bodies are like cars. It compared the emissions system to lungs, the oil to blood, etc. It was really rather well done.

    I concur that yes, it will be nice to upgrade someday.

    Ok, UPS van. My first thought... Nooo, you aren't pregnant. Sorry, my mind takes a left turn at reality on occasion...

    But, all isn't lost, my gal, we'll get there (yes, I said "we".)

    Sometimes I feel like one, too. Sometimes I just feel like I've been run into by one.

    :D

    Well, in my case, that's what the poles are for. But yes, we start moving, the body will do something back. Hopefully GOOD.

    Cat, who has hauled more than a little garbage in her day...

    Yes, now that you say that, I think I remember something like that, too! Might have to do some searching, see if I can find it... And yes, having a tookus that isn't a "dually" is my goal...

    :)

  15. You are too funny. You sound like me. I wake in the middle of the night and there's no going back to sleep. That mind gets to work and just won't stop! Not sure what I am. I'll have to put some thought into that one. Started with sit ups and push ups two days ago. We'll see.

  16. I loved this post even though I lost a whole lot of weight I didn't want to or needed to lose after my accident. Now I'm trying to gain it back, like portion control in reverse. Maybe I should aim for becoming a FedEx truck? Sort of zipping around, light on my feet?

  17. Ha! Oh I too have some dings and dents! Very funny post!

    Oh, yeah, one of the people I read calls it the Midnight Editor, I have a somewhat less pleasant name for it on occasion, but yes, when it makes a funny blog, it's not so bad. (Except possibly for the yawning.)

    Sit ups and push ups! Good for you! I can do the sit ups. Push ups, not so much. You have to have knees for that. Or at least knees that work...

    Uh, you're a stripped down racer, that needs a few options put on? ;)

    Fed Ex? Most assuredly, I agree. They come by our house, then I hear screeching tires as they zooom right by the neighbor's driveway! (regularly receives parcels...)
