Active at any Age

This past Sunday I went to my husbands baseball game and I was amazed to see these men, ranging from 25 to 55, playing baseball and staying active. It was great to see all these guys get out of the house and play sports. Many men, especially  older men, start to get lazy as they get older and would rather sit on a couch and drink all day. I was happy to see my husband and all his teammates have that competitive spirit and really put their all into the game. In the end they lost the game, but they didn’t let their spirits down and they amped each other up for the next game. There are so many sports that adults can get into, but they just need to look online and find local sports clubs around them. Since I am moving to VA soon I started going onto Meetup.com to find different outdoor activities

Lady Gaga Lover

This is just one more reason why I adore Lady Gaga. In a recent article from Bazaar magazine Gaga was quoted saying

“I have never had plastic surgery, and there are many pop singers who have. I think that promoting insecurity in the form of plastic surgery is infinitely more harmful than an artistic expression related to body modification.”

This is something that I indirectly feel about women who have plastic surgery, but I never said out loud. Aging is a part of life and we have to love ourselves at every age. Every wrinkle tells a story and embodies who we are. Yes, there are alot of women who get surgery to overcome insecurities, however ultimately they need to overcome it mentally and spiritually. They need to love themselves first and understand we were given these bodies for a reason, that we are individually crafted to look different and have imperfections. I think when you truly love yourself for who you are then you can entertain the idea fo surgery. Many women have surgery without really knowing who they are and loving themselves first. A lot of times women are so competitive and threatened by other women that they try to out-do each other. If you’re going to have surgery do it for the RIGHT reason and not to look better than your next-door neighbor. Sometimes I do not understand why everyone wants to look the same. Why everyone wants the same nose, the same round perky boobs, the same cheeks, why can’t we appreciate the flaws? Who’s to say that one day I will have plastic surgery, but the first thing I will do is find the reason why  I want to do it and make sure it is not for superficial reasons.

Lady Gaga continues talking in the article about fame, fashion and the reasons behind her latest facial accessories,  the horns.

PS. So sad I missed her concert last night at the AA Arena :-( Im sure it was Gagalicious!

What happened to LeAnn Rimes!

The first time I saw Lee Ann Rimes on the cover of Shape magazine I was impressed. She had gotten more toned and she loss alot of the baby fat she had when she was a teenager. Then the second issue of Shape came out and I was like “Go LeAnn!” your killing it. She was on the cover of Fitness, but I wasn’t to fond of the ad, she looked pasty and had a boyish figure. In my opinion she looked great and all she needed to do was maintain her weight and stay healthy.

Then I saw this picture!

I was floored. I did not know what to think. You only see her legs, but that is enough. All I could think of was it the stress of the past few years or was it the influence of her new man. This is not what healthy looks like this is what obsession of the gym, possibly starvation, looks like. I am definitely not hating on her, I like the girl. I just hope she figures things out and finds peace in her life, that is if she hasn’t found it already.
