The cat is out of the bag...

I repeat

The cat is out of the bag.

Sounds like a secret coded message, doesn't it? Something from an old war movie - Richard Burton trying to tell HQ that a German Battleship has set sail as the SS close in on him...

Anyway...

This morning we were talking to the kids about eating more healthily again - things seem to slip in the cold winter months...



At some point in this discussion I mentioned that my stomach has lost that little podgy bit that had appeared over Christmas.



"Yes", says Mrs RC, "have you stopped drinking Fat Coke or something?"



"No. I have been doing 20 press-ups each day."



"You have? When? Where?"



"In the bedroom when there isn't anyone around."


"Why?" Obviously she is wondering why I need to improve my already perfect physique!


""Well, summer is coming..."


"No, you want to get a tan in Malta, don't you? You don't want to be the old flabby guy in the group."


"No."


"Oh yes."

Hey, just wait until you're MY age. I'm still paying for all that abuse (darn those twinkies)...

Press ups, push ups, stick with whatever works for you.
