I was watching an Oprah repeat today and Dr. Oz was on. This reminded me of the Real Age website, and I thought I’d take the free test again, since I haven’t done it in a while. My calendar age is 32, and I think the last time I took the quiz it said I was 26. Today my “real age” is 29. I love this quiz because it shows that you can defy your age by living a healthy lifestyle. I like to tell myself that I look younger than my calendar age, and people say I do, but they could just be humoring me. The quiz asks you all sorts of questions about your health and family history, your eating habits, your stress factors, and even questions about driving and if you own a pet. It doesn’t ask you if you wear sunscreen on a regular basis, though. Hmmm.
Anyway, I’m not as “young” as I could be because: I have high cholesterol, I only own cats and not a dog, I don’t do enough cardio, I don’t floss enough, and I need to spend more time with friends. And it says I need to gain weight. HA! Apparently the website didn’t read my post about cellulite. Maybe if I do a lot more cardio, the cellulite will indeed go away. Only time will tell!
So take the “Real Age” test and tell me what it says! After I took the test, I kept checking my email for the results (it said it would take an hour or two). Then I went back to the Real Age homepage, and my results were right there, without having to wait!
Update: Since I wrote this post, I have gained weight (and more cellulite). I will have to re-take the test to see if I’m younger now;) I still need to work on the flossing.
