Life Balance


I run, I jump, I swim.

I can do most anything.

It’s fun! It makes me smile

To run a country mile.

I may not win a ribbon,

A trophy or a medal.

When I ride my bike it’s leisurely;

That’s how I like to pedal.

Eat well, rest well, work, play.

I balance out each day.

I set my pace – unhurried

To avoid becoming flurried.

A Funny Exercise


A Funny Exercise

An exercise helps keep us fit.

We all agree on that.

It gets your heart a-pumping so

your body won’t go flat.

A heart-beat circulates the blood

to all our living cells.

Transporting food and oxygen

to keep us fit and well.

Doing lots of exercise

can make our heart beat fast.

Strengthening the muscles so

our body’s built to last.

Now laughing can be exercise.

A work-out for the lungs.

Releasing lots of tension if

we’re feeling highly strung.

It elevates our pulse rate

and it’s also lots of fun.

One hundred big laughs every day

will be my aim now-on.

It massages the abdomen.

It shakes those shoulders free.

A perfect form of exercise …

Ho-Ho   Ha-Ha   He-He!

Medals, medals, medals

Medals, medals, medals,

Australia’s won its share.

Medals, medals, medals,

We won them everywhere!

Medals, medals, medals,

Our athletes brought them home.

Medals, medals, medals,

From pool to velodrome.

Medals, medals, medals,

Our athletes did us proud,

Aussie, Aussie, Aussie,

Let’s shout it out so loud.

Medals, medals, medals,

We’ve won a tidy sum!

But if I had my way,

I’d give a Gold to Mum.
