I don't want Rockin' Abs and other goals I don't have

I have a friend who has a 6 pack- her abs are awesome. She eats raw food and works out about 3 hours a day.

I have no desire to ever have a 6 pack or even a 2 pack.

You see, I LIKE chocolate chip cookies on a Sunday evening- and then Monday morning for breakfast.

So it's settled, I will never have rockin' abs because I'd rather have cookies and 2 extra hours in my day.

I will also never have nice nails for more than a week every 3 months. $34 a month for nail care? Let me whip out my handy dandy calculator- that's $408 a year, for 20 years? I could have a car! Every time I see a well manicured hand I think "Shoot, I should really get my nails done, and she may have nice hands but in 20 years I'll be able to afford a Toyota Corala with 120,000 miles on it."

Speaking of nice cars- I really don't want to drive a Mercedes, BMW, Porsche or Audi. So luxury car- that's a total non-goal. If I could have any car in the world it would be my 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee which I was forced to give up practically at gunpoint. ANY CAR in the world and I'd like that one back please.

So back to the abs. It's kind of nice saying "you've got great abs, and I admire the work sacrifice and dedication involved and I can say with all the conviction in my heart and soul- no thank you" I'd like to find some more goals I don't want. Sure is easier than executing on the ones I do.
