My Last Oz Post

At least for today.

So, the healthy eating is starting to feel like a routine and I figured it was time to take the "Real Age" challenge.

If you are not aware of what I am referring to, this is basically a test to determine how old you really are according to your lifestyle choices, as opposed to your actual calendar age. This number is determined by things like food, diet, exercise, vitamins, family history, and other more specific things like whether or not your the child of divorce, you wear you seatbelt, and even how often you floss.

It is not only very interesting, but with the age result, you also get a list of things you are doing right, as well as a list of things you could be doing to improve your "real age".

My diet, of course, scored me a lot of points as it is rich in fish, vegetables, soy products, whole wheat grains, and nuts. My lifestyle choices also contributed to my resulting age: 29.9 years!

I am actually 32.4....which means I am doing okay, largely do to my new eating habits, I imagine.

Negatives for me came with some of my family's medical history, my inconsistent exercise routines, and failure to take a multi-vitamin.

So, I'll pick up some vitamins on my next errand run, as well as some flaxseed and fish oil (so excited about those) and we'll see about that exercise part.

Does anyone know Susan's number????

If you want to find out your "Real Age", click HERE.

Also, be prepared to fill out some info about yourself as it takes them about 20-30 minutes to calculate your results, which they email to you. If you do not want to give them your personal email address, use mine and I'll pass along your results.

My real age is 30.5!!! I'm actually 35.7! Not to shabby...and I've even smoked for several years (14 years ago). So sis, we're actually just a few months apart! Maybe if I can change a few things like how much sleep I get per night I could be younger than you!

My real age is 27.2, my actually age is 32.3. Not too bad. I need to eat more veggies and get my asthma and allergies under control. I suppose getting rid of my cats would help, but there's no way that's happening!
