so much for commitment
Who ate all my Captain Crunch?
The only crunches he gets is when he’s eating tortilla chips.
Weight and exercise…
A suttle lead in to back to Tiffany tomorrow?
(Which will appear an hour later to all us anti luminarians in the Grand Canyon state.)
The best part of the strip are all the sideways glances that Nancy is giving every time Frank says something.
I had the same pattern – except it was about saving money…
My sweet William and I decided to fast today because the excess Halloween candies and a pumpkin pie make the pants fit tighter. So nothing but coffee and water all day. It is now after midnight and officially tomorrow, so I’m breaking the fast with some gouda and gerwurtztaminer.
Irresolute resolutions lack solutions.
Zero effort = Zero results.
I am in awe of my Mother…she was still doing 10 sit-ups every night- at the age of 99!
Greg did this exact gag some years before. Don’t think I didn’t notice!
Once again, Frank is portrayed as a complete idiot. Fred Flinstone, Homer Simpson …
January 1, 1974-Present. My new year’s resolution: I stop swearing. Felt good about it. Aside from acceptable wordslike “Fart” and “Jackass”, that’s as far I take it.
This is why I don’t make New Year’s resolutions at all. They’re too easily broken. The gym that’s full on New Year’s Day will be empty with tumbleweeds blowing past it by the middle of January.

“Frankie In The Middle”
I like that striped top on Nancy!
Some of us were setting back…some of us were “springing forward”….Frank just decided to go “MOR” and make all the numbers stay the same…
Frank is experiencing the inflationary period in cosmology.
Uh, Excuse Me Frank. But back in September there was something BOTH You and Nancy COULD done, since You’re in Bed and all, that would have taken the place of those crunches, and it would’ve been far MORE Enjoyable.
Right Up Until Team Evans Interrupts You. For Laffs……..,
50 crunches = 2 minutes. shouldn’t be that hard.
Sunday foible, we all have been there. I am still trying to get my 3 times a week at the gym in. But hey Frank I actually lost a few pounds, so there. I admit it’s like moving deck chairs around on the Titanic, but I will still brag a little (lol).
With his glasses off, Frank looks exactly like Brad.
Portraying the illusion that doing crunches is the first best step back to a higher level of fitness. Haha. I’ve been doing bodywork (aka massage therapy) for 37 years & see this often (I’ve talked to thousands of clients). Illusions/Myths: 1) Crunches will make your burgeoning midriff smaller. 2) Crunches will help you lose weight. 3) Crunches will help decrease the odds of your getting ill from lack of fitness (eg, heart disease is #1 killer in the USA, diabetes is up there & growing). How about 1) change your high calorie diet, you’re not 24 anymore, wake up! 2) walk an hour a day; then eventually, walk up a hill or two, 3) Pay someone / a club to make you accountable. Or, you could get yet more obese, get ill / disabled, then die earlier than you’d prefer. Anyway, end of rant. Peace & love. (I like Nancy with her wordless, knowing glances. I can relate.) Hey let’s make America great again – let’s all get more fit, & not sick!
You’d think he’d just forget after a while; but Frank at least remembers that he made that resolution.
tomorrow: Gunther and Tiffany hit the gym !
I must respectfully decline this strip’s offer to comment, on the grounds that I resemble that!
You can lie to everyone else in your life, but you can’t lie to yourself!
50 crunches a day… that’s nothing, maybe about 5-7 minutes. Most would vow to do something more strenuous like running a mile each day. That would take commitment.
