Longevity Game

How long will you live? Play this game and see.

As we all know, there are many lifestyle factors that, along with genetics, help to determine how long we might live. According to the game, I should live to age 91 and Der to age 89. I did pretty well in all areas except exercise - I'm a lazy butt. :( I need to get some motivation to get off my behind and get active. I go in bursts where I do really well for a few days and then I slack off. I know exactly what I need - an exercise partner who will call me up and get me going. When I lived in Saskatoon, I had my friend Sandi who was my motivator. She got me going to the gym and would call me up to go for a walk some evenings. Once I got into the routine of going to the gym in the morning, I always went. When I didn't, it felt terrible. I need another Sandi here!!

It's interesting to hear everyone's exercise stories and how they are motivated. It's taken me a long time to really realize (or maybe admit?) what I need to get me going exercise-wise, but now that I know, it should really help me. I just need to find that partner! :) What about you?
