For a good laugh

I was just trying to find out if any celebrities had had their babies recently via my daily check. And then Gwyneth Paltrow popped up, as she does at all the most inopportune times. Talking about how she’d gotten in the best shape of her life and could wear (really short!) shorts at age 37. And I thought, well, I don’t want to wear really short shorts. But maybe Bermuda shorts? Without having excess skin drooping down from my knees? And all kinds of wobbly-ness peeking out?

So what the heck, I checked out her trainer’s exercise video.  I’ve looked at it twice now. The first time I couldn’t even do the exercises. I just laughed. Now I can do 4 exercises at half the number of suggested reps (10 instead of 20). And then I just fall into a heap of slovenliness.

Pass me the cookies. Shorts aren’t really necessary for a Calgary summer, anyway.

  1. Please keep in mind that Gwenyth not only has a personal trainer but also a private chef cooking for her. Cooking things like fish almost every meal and lots of fresh or cooked veggies. She’s probably never stepped foot in a fast food restaurant (not that you or I do either…but) and I’m sure she has people helping her with her kids all day and is not there by her lonesome (who could get lonely with house workers around?). This is also how she has time to go and spend 2+ hours a day in her private gym studio she built out back of her house (it’s closer to the kids and the nanny, you know…). Don’t get me wrong, of all celebrities, Gwenyth is one of my top favs, but she lives a pretty plush life…. You live a plush life as well, plush enough for gourmet cookies!!! 🙂 Make those buckeyes, they will do wonders for you!

  2. I’m not even going to watch that video. Maybe I’ll check back in 2 years in the hopes that I’ll then be ready to be in the best shape of my life.
