I decided it was time to lighten the mood over here at, A Gripping Life, since I’ve been incredibly serious this week. I’m dedicating my post today to DIET and EXERCISE–the bane of my existence.
So cute! I needed that! I just went on my page and found a post missing from a few days ago. I actually had a notification from another blogger “liking” it and discovered it was missing with a sorry unavalilable notice from wordpress… has that ever happened to you? Sorry to use this reply spot but I’m baffled???
I’m telling you, if you want to lose weight book a flight to the Pacific. When you’re about 100 miles out from your destination start a fight with the pilot causing the plane to get down. If you survive you’ll probably wash up on an island and you’ll have no choice but to starve until a Vietnamese rescue boy comes along.
I once spent 4 straight hours in a Lane Bryant. That one wins for me because of my horrible ordeal.
Once again, Tim. This is very sound advice. I like your logic. I’m surprised Lily and I haven’t come up with that plan yet? We like the idea of going to Greece; the land of crazy sea food, cheese and olives. All we would be able to eat is bread and chicken. We’d lose a ton of weight.
Lane Bryant can be frightening.
I need to have the story of Tim spending four hours in a Lane Bryant. I need to have it now.
Hahah! It must have been pure torture. Yes, let’s pry him open about that! Good idea!
haha! Thanks. I felt like I needed to take a break from the heavy posts of late.
Yeah, that happens to me ALL THE TIME. I’m the worst when it comes to navigating around wordpress. I’m lucky I can even type and publish a post!
These all made me laugh!! I’ve seen the one with the running; what we think we look like when we run and how we actually look. That one always make me pee a little in my pants when I see it!! 🙂
Thanks for the laughs on this post!!
Haha! I know, I don’t know why I laugh every time I see that one. Probably because it’s so true. I’m glad you came by and got a little laugh. xoxox
I looooove your lighter side, Grippy. ;). Always have. Thanks for making me laugh out loud this gorgeous, fall-like Saturday. That little girl with the cookies? That’s me when it comes to Girl Scout Thin Mints. Yay for sweaters and other fall-like attire!
Me too!! I love thin mints, like LLLOOOVVVEE!
I know, isn’t this weather to die for, especially after such a hot summer. Enjoy it and have fun this weekend! Grippy xoxox
I love the running one! i suppose I should start thinking seriously about actually running or actually having an Oreo eating contest with myself. xo
I know, the running one is my favorite, too. In my head I’m a pro athlete but in reality I’m an Oreo eating blob. haha!
Thinking about you on day 2 of your engagement! I’m so happy for you!! YAY!!!
I think I have hit a magic place. I am running again, on top of cycling etc and haven’t lost a pound. Not a good thing
That sounds magical, indeed!! I think I’ve lived my life in that magical place. lol.
Just keep going, at least you’re not gaining, right?
Wouldn’t that just beat all
opened this at work at the circulation desk… not a good idea…librarian getting shushed from laughing too hard. Thanks Grippy
Teehee. I’m glad it made you laugh. I was thinking about all the heavy stuff I’ve written lately and needed to cleanse myself with some humor.
Hope you’re having an okay work day – I won’t say anything about the weather… Okay I will. It’s glorious. What time to you get off work? Soon I hope. When you do, enjoy the rest of this beautiful autumn day! xoxox
Great humour. Yes, sometimes it’s needed to throw in some jokes… I mean, for your own mood as well.
I needed to get rid of all the heaviness from the previous posts. Too serious!
Glad you had a laugh.
Have a great day, NBI!
LOL Lisa!! HAha! These are all so FUNNY. You sure know how to pick ’em! The one that really got me laughing was the one that said, “What I feel like when I run, what I pretty sure I actually look like! HAhahahahaha!
haha! In my head I think I’m a pro athlete but I’m pretty sure in reality I look totally lame. lol! Just thought I needed to get rid of the heavy posts and cleanse with some humor.
Have a great weekend, Linda!!
I know I look like the kid on the bottom when I run.
I do it on purpose.
And I love the idea of a self oreo eating contest above.
Me – “I ate 97”
Me “Oh yeah? Well watch this!”
*Runs off to buy milk*
Glad you’re finding some fun for the weekend!
Yup, that’s definitely how I look when I run. Let’s make a deal never to run together, okay? Ha!
Let’s face it, Oreos are the greatest cookie ever invented, that is, as long as you have delicious cold milk to accompany them. ahh!
I guess I won’t tell you to go out and enjoy the crisp fall weather. Lol! Try and have a melancholy free weekend, anyway. Lisa xoxox
This is probably the best way to go about it, because if we don’t have the time to laugh at ourselves, on occasion, then why take our health and bodies so serious !
Hey Wartica. Glad you dropped by. You’re exactly right. If we can’t laugh at ourselves then what’s the point??
Have a great weekend!
The one with Ina Garten had me seriously lolling bc my husband and I always joke about how celeb chefs cook with the most outlandish, locally produced ingredients ever, which the normal home cook will never be able to procure.
haha! Lily gave me that one and I couldn’t stop laughing. Those shows are ridiculous for that very reason. Half the time I can’t even pronounce the ingredient let alone go off and find it in my local store. Too funny!
Do you ever have any down time?…hahaha…I’m starting to see why Susie likes you so much…I think there must be some kind of soul connection.
haha! Down time? What’s that? Just kidding!! Something tells me Susie’s soul is not so hard to connect with. : )
You are right…and it is beautiful too…be encouraged!
Ahhhh fat jokes.
I have some 20-something co-workers who hit the gym during lunch. they come back all cheery and such and when I do that I am dragging all the way to my desk..
Love the little girl eating Oreos..best cookie in town!
If I worked out at lunch time I could never go back to the office. I’m the red faced girl that sweats to the point of embarrassment. Yeah, I’d be dragging, too. How dare they act cheery! They’ve got nerve! LOL!
Oreos and milk. Seriously, there’s nothing better.
Loved this post. Where is Michael Cargill? Since Meredith made her own blog, my e-mail account won’t allow me to post anything. We have tried to fix it twice. That said, I want the four hour Lane Bryant from Mooselicker. Craig checked himself into Weight Watchers this week. This should be interesting. I won’t have him look at your latest post. Who wants to look thin like Jennifer Hudson, anyway?
I should probably join Craig. My back issues, neuralgia and menopause have caused me to just go in reverse with my weight. I was doing good around the time of the wedding and now… not so much : (
Anyhoo, I’m also stress eating due to this stupid election. I’ll be glad when it’s over and my lover, Mittens, wins. xoxo
I love the running picture…
I know, I never get tired of that one. haha!
I was a chunk-a-monk as a kid!
I’d rather be a chunky kid and a thin adult than the opposite. Anyway, I bet you were a cute kid. : )
I just ate a bowl of ice cream with a cupcake in it.
hahaha! That sounds delish, I think? I just had a Rice Crispie treat the size of my head. That oughta do wonders for my expanding waistline, huh?
Oh rice crispies….one of my favorite things ever.
Ugh! I was going to do a gif post about food! Hmm maybe I’ll hold off on it for a while. This was supes funny. My favorite will always be Ina and her vanilla from Madagascar. But I really love the pizza food pyramid too!
I know, that’s a good one and basically the way my brain works. Emily appreciated the Ina Garten especially. You can do a food gif thing, that will be totally different.
I laughed at all of these. I even downloaded a few to share with others. And now I don’t feel so bad for the feeding frenzy I’ve had this weekend.
It was getting way too serious over here. If I want a good laugh I needn’t look any further than my own reflection!! Feeding frenzy, indeed. I just made rice crispie treats and ate the whole thing. That’s healthy, right? Lol!
Oh Lordy, I have to lose weight when I get back from my holiday! I’m determined to be healthier, mmuch more pain-free and slimmer come Christmas! Seriously!
Charlene! Me too! I just want to feel healthier and more free in my body. It effects my mood, too.
Hope you’re having a grand old time! Can’t wait to read all about it. For now, just enjoy the remaining days – don’t think of food, for heaven’s sake. haha!
