Do you know that little ditty?
I have it stuck in my head at the moment. Replaying over and over.
So I sat and thought about it.
When I was a kid my mom always said no jumping on the beds. And as I was just now thinking about no more monkeys jumping on the bed, I was innocently picturing them jumping on the bed like it was a trampoline...and also thought "great exercise!"
Then I wandered down the road to my past and thought about what else mom said not to do...."quit racing down the stairs, you'll break your neck" "Stop running in the house, the phone will ring more than once" "Just sit and be quiet will you?" "sit still for heavens sake!"
So where am I going with this?
As I grew up and these things trained me more and more to be quieter, slower, less energetic....perhaps this is why I began to have a weight problem by the time I was 10?
Not enough exercise to burn offcalories I was eating.
I found it to be an interesting thought as I again heard the ditty "No more monkeys jumping on the bed!"
It is just idle thinking, of course. No proof or anything like that. What do you think?
