Why We Make Mistakes?

Many people often make mistakes.  Yet, sometimes we don’t know why.  I recently had to make a change in my Biggest Reasons Why Americans Are Overweight post.  It was a simple mistake too that anyone can make.

Down at the bottom, when I started talking about “they’re tampering with our health,” I had out instead of our.  Simple mistake right?

What about when we make mistakes that are big mistakes, the ones that make us feel a little down?

Today, I finished my workout routine.  Well, the Cardiovascular part of it anyway.  I found out that I actually had an error in my last calculation on Calories burned.  Yesterday, I had thought that I burned about  363 calories, when it was no where near.

Here’s the formula that I used to calculate those Calories.  men: calories = [(0.6309 x heart rate) + (0.2017 x age) — (0.09036 x weight) — 55.0969] x time / 4.184.

 See the part where it says — 55.0969]?  Yeah, I missed that completely in my calculation.  Somehow, someway, I just totally left it out.  So, while figuring out the new calculation, I was slightly disappointed.

Can you imagine how disappointing it is to find out that you’re not burning 300+ Calories, but instead you’re burning more like 186.  And that’s after increasing your time on the Elliptical to push yourself?  Sags head and walks away………

Ok, maybe not quite yet.  Unless I’m doing the formula wrong, there’s a big mistake there, but what can we learn from mistakes?

For starters, we can’t dwell on them.  We have to move on and learn from them.  We have to be more careful next time, so that we won’t make the same mistake again.  Life is too short to be filled with fouls.

It also helps to not be tired when you’re writing a blog post.  You’re more likely to catch those mistakes.  So make sure you get a good nights sleep.

So, what! if. I; make/misteaks….Get over it.  That’s all we can do right?  Get over it and move on.  Learn from them and not bash ourselves too much.

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.
