    I should point out that I made plans to go to the gym every day this week, but only managed one rather feeble 30 minute visit. I did however manage to eat two large blocks of Cadbury chocolate.
    My only consolation is that I hope/assume there must be other Lost Bears whose commitment to health and exercise is equally shameful.
    Hail Fellow Blobfish!!!

    I plan on riding my bike tomorrow, so I can’t help you out.

    I assume from your Cadbury reference, that you are back in Tasmania enjoying the good life again.

    we have Cadbury here in the states…
    we can even provide a poor Lost Bear with Vegimite. all the comforts of home

    I think that all of the above fitness trainers are providing a great example and are a true inspiration.
    Firstly, the most important thing in fitness training is to avoid injury. So many people take up a fitness program and before you know it they’ve strained their back, done a knee, twisted an ankle or popped a hernia. That would never happen if they were trained by these coaches.
    Secondly, it is vital in all life to remember to pace yourself. Economy of effort and efficiency of movement are far more important than speed or strength and flexibility is a far greater virtue than endurance. These guys know all about surviving in a tough world and consistently display the dedication to not over commit to anything unreasonably energetic.
    Finally, it makes sense to consider what it is that you want to be fit for. If you can do the things you want to do and are happy doing them, then really you are fit enough. These experts are superbly conditioned for the tasks that they perform day after day and are all champions in there own events.
    And after all, what is the point of fitness if you can’t enjoy eating and drinking whatever you like? Will exercise and “healthy living” ever make you happier than eating something like chocolate? These fitness trainers would never deny themselves as much of their favourite food as they can reasonably acquire.
    These guys are heroes.

    That’s good to know. They make great chocolate. Mrs Superfrog’s favourite is Cadburys Chocolate Mousse and I always make sure that there are a few blocks in the fridge at all times.

    A wise precaution, Superfrog!
    Mr Pacopuddy, likewise, is careful to have a stock of Bourneville dark and Galaxy milk for my XX-chromosome moments (a square of each, melting in the mouth together, will turneth away wrath better than any soft answer.)
    Vegemite, however . . .

    I know what chocolate is but I don’t think I’ve ever heard the word “gym” before. Is it a place where a guy called Jim sells you chocolate? We used to have excercise books at school, so I know what that word means – homework.

    I get my workout commenting at The Lost Bear. As for chocolate, we have a local chocolate company called Chocolate Necessities. They make great bittersweet bars and wonderful truffles.

    There’s a weatherman on one of the local stations here named Jym. He used to be so big you’d think he ate all the chocolate himself, but now he’s lost a lot of weight. He must be going to the regular gym now

    I’ve been doing this exercise program called “Insanity” which feels exactly like that. I’m going pretty crazy every day I try it!

    i purchased a wireless security monitor system so i can work in the garage and watch to see that mom is ok at the same time.

    i intend to spend several hours every day in the garage until i have it neat, and have gone through every box in there to decide what is junk, and what is going into my summer long garage sale next year.

    does that count as exercise?

    If nothing else, mental exercise.

    Thanks Eldo. That is so cool. I’ve often thought it would be great to have something to keep the sweat out of my eyes when I’m busy eating chocolate.
