Staying Fit – Why Staying Fit Is Not An Option

So, science has confirmed what many people have believed over time.  What is this confirmation?  Well, let’s just say that many people think that it’s quite possible to stay fit at any age.

What’s the verdict?  Basically, you’ll have to maintain a certain level of activity or increase your activity as you get older.  Why?  Simply put, it takes a little more work to stay healthy at an older age.

This doesn’t mean that people can’t stay as healthy as a 20 year old at the age of 50+.  This is crucial to reducing factors such as Cardiovascular Disease.

Why is this crucial?  According to a study, Women are 5 times more likely to get Cardiovascular Disease than a physically fit woman.  Same study provides evidence that Men are 8 times more likely to get Cardiovascular Disease for not being fit.  Good enough reason to stay fit?

This study was done in Europe, where they are always looking for more answers, unlike the American counter parts, who just want to find a quick fix.  Exercise is very crucial to anything we do.  Want to lose weight?  Want to stay fit?  Want those sexy abs?  Gotta exercise.

Birthday Songs – Ewe

Today is my 30th Birthday and having dinner at any restaurant is usually interesting on this day.  You know what I mean, they come out with a piece of Birthday Cake and sing that little annoying song.

Ok, the Happy Birthday song, isn’t annoying.  Just to get that clear.  I’m talking about the song they sing at the restaurant.  Happy happy birthday, happy happy birthday, happy happy birthday, happy happy birthday.  You know the one.  That catchy, but annoying one that makes you embarrassed to be there.

The funny thing is, we were at Applebees the night before and someone had a birthday in the booth right behind us.  I was like, oh no, that song again.  Even when it’s not your birthday, it makes you smile and blush.  All I have to say is WTF?

I was going to ask the waitress at Outback, what they offered for Birthdays.  My mother told me I could always tell her it’s your Birthday, but they’ll come out and sing that song.  I answered right away, “No, absolutely not.  That’s just down right embarrassing.”

Needless to say, I didn’t have a Birthday song, nor did I have a piece of Cake.  Personally, I don’t like Birthday Cake on my Birthday.  If it’s another Birthday, I’m usually fine with eating a slice of Cake.  I”d rather have a tasty Cheesecake instead, with strawberries and whip cream on top.

I decided to not get the Cheesecake either.  My mother was like, “for the whole $4 (for the slice), I could make you a whole Cheesecake.”  So, I’m sure you know what I opted for.  I’d rather have a whole Cheesecake than a slice any day and no one makes them better than my mom does.  That’s I’ve found yet.

With that, I hope your birthday is just as eventful.  Joking around about silly birthday songs  and what ever else you can find to joke about.  And may you get a whole Cheesecake on your Birthday to celebrate.
