thanks mate

“do you have a personal trainer,” the student asked.

“No,” I replied, “My obviously resplendent figure is all natural!”

“Wait till you hit 40,” he muttered.

  2. Hmm, so the choice is ‘get a personal trainer’ or pray that Jesus comes back before you’re 30, 40, or 50yo’?

  4. Or follow the “third way” – go happily flabby…. After all we seem designed to decay. Aging is the one thing we all do. Why fight, submit gracefully…

  5. I just turned 40 and so I have been acutely aware of this very subject lately. But I am inclined to agree with Tim to a degree. I could have the physical training regimen of Lance Armstrong (which I do not) and it would not stop me from the ravages of aging. As an American, I can tell you that national culture is OBSESSED with youth and ways to stay young. Ofcourse, I will try to take care of this body…but no matter what it’s going to age.
    Do I like it? Nope. But I am beginning to be at peace with it.
