Shape Up and Laugh

Hi,all...have a nice weekend..our weekend's just ending out here...amongst memorable things of the week, there's the Skechers Shape Up shoes I just got- plan to try them out this week-today,maybe...but, I haven't seen the CD or the instruction booklet yet. Yep-the shoes come complete with these,and the salesman said it's good to see/read before wearing the shoes.
Now,ask why I'm buying shape up shoes?hahaha...well, isn't it clear? To shape up,of course- I decided to begin my usual diet-n-exercise routine  once more-gymming,walking,dieting...blah blah...2 weeks, 3 kgs down...let's see where I reach this time, before it's 'just maintenance' mood.Wish me luck.
Now, on to the joke, that had me ROFLling when I read it. Enjoy, and wait for the next post that's coming up very soon.
