While on the elliptical machine this morning, I observed the same old thing – overweight women on the treadmills reading, talking on the phone and as usual, not sweating. Is it really rocket science that if you want to lose weight, you need to work at it? It’s not easy. If it were easy, everybody would be in great shape. What’s the deal? Are these women afraid to sweat?
There’s more to benefit from REAL exercise than just being in shape. It helps you live longer. Apoptosis, or programmed cell death, is slowed down when you do cardiovascular activity. And I don’t mean WALKING on the treadmill. I mean real exercise. Cell death is what makes you age. As your cells die, the new cells that replace them aren’t as good as the ones before them. They’re simply carbon copies that carry “almost” all of the information on the original. The more this process happens, the older we get.
Wanna stay young? Delay your cells from dying in the first place! Isn’t a good run or jog every day – or at least four or five times per week – worth staying young? There’s your fountain of youth… Drink from it…
On another note, I heard a woman next to me complaining about having to wax. Something about her having to wax “everything” for her husband. Ya know what? I don’t buy it! I think that’s just an excuse.. I think women do this to feel “feminine”. I think it has very little to do with men being unable to stand seeing hair on a vagina. Oh, my God! Hair on a vagina! I’m calling my attorney to work-up the divorce papers! Holy shit!
Anyway, I don’t believe women do this for men. I think they do it for themselves. And if you DON’T do it for yourself – and you do it for your man – and it’s not just to be nice – he actually demands it – go F! somebody else! It’s F’ing HAIR! Humans have hair! Deal with it. Grooming is an important part of life these days.. Nothing wrong with that. But if you don’t want to do it, than don’t do it.
And my last rant of the day… When you get the windows on your car tinted, it’s TINT. NOT TINTS! This nonsense started happening a few years ago and now I actually hear grown, intelligent men talking about getting “tints on their windows”. It’s TINT. Not TINTS. You had tint installed on your windows. Moron!
Oh! I just got paints on my car! Yeah.. Paints on my car and tints on my windows. Woohoo!
