And I might add that "ΐ chacun son goϋt" - to each her own taste, if people want to register dishwashing as exercise I have nothing to say - and to me some supermarkets really offer exercise as when I get to the cash register and find that I forgot the cat food and it is waaaay in the other end and I am rushing back and forth with my carriage...on the other henad it won΄t take more tan three minutes or so...and I need at least ten to count.

Yes - it was intended as a joke, I don΄t count shopping as exercise, but "household work" can be chosed in the fitness department as faorite...me, I rarely do housework long enough to make it count emoticon (another joke...)

Nah, not to worry - I was just joshing about Meddy's comment and I think JUNEBUG was too. I wish shopping WAS major exercise. It'd be great if every time I go to the supermarket it counted as cardio, lol!

Oh as you have seen from my previous post I've laughed at all of them but the last one there are people at SP who really do count shopping as exercise if you look at the fitness tracker there are many who really do beleive with all their heart its a workout

You maybe a turtle if you count washing dishes as exercise emoticon

It funny to us but I have seen this on fitness trackers for real go figure

Sorry I went to serious

Hi, Linda! I started this thread off in a decidedly lighter vein, as ONEKIDSMOM said. I posted:

--One of the funniest lines (and there are quite a few) I ever heard from Jeff Foxworthy went something like "You may be a redneck if you only need one more hole punched in your card for a freebie at The House of Tattoos."

--What crossed my mind this morning is a thread of "You may be a turtle if--" lines, as in:

--"You may be a turtle if - you count brushing your teeth as an arm exercise."

--I hope no one will find this offensive in any way, and if you do please don't hesitate to tell me, but if you think this can give us a smile or two, add a post!

--So what's your best turtle line?

* * * * *

I'm not very good at thinking up amusing one-liners, but I get a kick out of reading them, lol...

emoticon I'm going ot do some bubble bursting here and I apologize if I offend anyone here. In all seriousness shopping does NOT get your heart rate up enough to really be counted as exercise one needs to get their heart rate up to 60 to 80% of the maximum for it to have a real affect in weight loss & cardio conditioning

One of the funniest lines (and there are quite a few) I ever heard from Jeff Foxworthy went something like "You may be a redneck if you only need one more hole punched in your card for a freebie at The House of Tattoos."

What crossed my mind this morning is a thread of "You may be a turtle if--" lines, as in:

"You may be a turtle if - you count brushing your teeth as an arm exercise."

I hope no one will find this offensive in any way, and if you do please don't hesitate to tell me, but if you think this can give us a smile or two, add a post!

So what's your best turtle line?
