F Simple and Serene Living: the perfect Olympic body 09 10

the perfect Olympic body

So, I signed into Yahoo the other day and saw an article titled something like "Which Olympic athlete's body type do you have?"

Ummmm, my first thought was "if any of the athletes have my body, they are just not going to be winning any gold medals, so I am not playing this game."

I mean I would love to have a body that would jump, and twist, and cavort like our all round gymnast champion Gabby Douglas. Isn't she adorable?

BUT I tend to get dizzy so maybe back handsprings aren't the thing for me. 

Maybe I could be a swimmer like Missy Reynolds. So cute and what a great personality.

BUT the last time I tried to swim laps, I only made it down one length of the pool so maybe not a swimmer.

Ahhhh, don't you love beach volleyball? I mean, who could resist wanting to be Misty May and Kerri.

BUT, my knee surgeon said no volleyball (although I feel sure my body type would be perfect for it if it wasn't for that) soooo

Aha!! I think I have it

Ha, just kidding. I would never expose my rear end like that.

So I'm wondering. Is there a gold medal for watching the Olympics on TV?

Because if there is, I think the queen might want to give me a medal. After all, my red eyes will attest to the fact that I have been staying up way too late glued to the tube. 

If there's a choice, though, I'd rather have Daniel Craig. I am sure I have the perfect body type to be a Bond girl.

  1. Love this post! So true - my body type doesn't seem to fall into the Olympics Body category.

    But Daniel Craig? I'll take him!

  5. Laura this cracks me up. My body type is more the Mother's in the audience! I've enjoyed the Olympics and the great women who have excelled this year! Hugs, Linda

  6. Cute post. I don't have an athlete's body type at all. My body was made for reading, walking, and sometimes, crawling around after the grandkids.

  7. This is so funny! Besides Misty May and Kerri they are all like 12 aren't they? :o) I would kill to have my teenage, pre baby body again!

  10. Funny. I think the only Olympic sport I could consider might be racewalking without the racing part!

  12. What a cute post!!! I had to laugh at your reasoning behind not wanting to be a sumo wrestler. Too funny. I have been staying up late watching the Olympics too. It's addictive isn't it? Guess it will be over soon though.

  14. Cute post! I wish I had an athletic body. :) A swimmers body would work. :)
    Hope you have a great weekend!

  15. I found it highly amusing that the only branded food allowed inside the Olympic Village was McDonalds. Nobody ever got to the olympics by eating McDonalds!
