If Only

If only chocolate were cruciferous, and

coffee were vegetable broth.

If only tap-tappng at my computer were aerobic, and

Facebook Scrabble were resistance exercise

for muscle, as well as mind. If only

cabbage were strawberries, and

sprouts were Snickers bars.

If only scrolling on my Cloud Reader were strolling in the neighborhood, and

faithful blogging burned the same number of calories as the hilly trail I have abandoned;

then, I would be free—pain free, fat free, guilt free, and

fit enough to write the next successful weight loss best seller.

If only . . .

    Good one! Carbs are king right now. Will be sorry when Spring comes and I have to take off the sweaters, so sorry I didn’t go for those sprouts!

I would love to hear from you!
