My Kinda Exercise

As the new year begins, gyms around the country fill with resolutioners vowing to get back into shape.  Wouldn't it be great if it were as easy as these old photos make it seem?

Marilyn looks stunning as ever in her high-waisted shorts as she stretches and lifts weights without breaking a sweat.

 Who wouldn't love to look this gorgeous while working out?

The 50s and 60s made exercising look glamorous, but it was the 1970s that made it look easy.  

Below is an ad for a Twist 'N  Tone - and this looks amazing!  Just twist and turn your way into a a great body.  Added bonus, you can get some extra wear out of your suit or mini skirt since they can double as workout gear!

The best, however, is what Sears proposes for exercise - lounging in a onesie.  This is my kinda exercise!

The woman in the front and I are on the same page...just add Tivo and a Snuggie and that looks like a great night of working out!

Wouldn't we all be in great shape if it were really that easy?
