Living a healthy life should be a priority for you.
Because your daughter is watching you.
Because she will do what you do – and not what you say.
Because unhealthy living can lead to a host of preventable problems.
And because you are better than living like a slob.
So push away from the table. Set the drink down. Get the dog, and go for a long walk.
And when you get back, I’ll be here with a bottle of cold water.
After all, I went to the gym at lunch.
Because neither of us should end up like this.
Made me laugh though:
After more than forty years of being oppressed by substandard nutrition and deprived of physical activity, my body has taken to the streets. One after another, in remarkable synchronization, my muscles have begun to cramp. It started with my neck, moved down to my shoulders, and at some point even reached my feet. My wife came home one day to find me lying on my back like a dead cockroach. It took her twenty minutes to understand that something was wrong with me, and when she did, the first thing she said was, “You had it coming.”
