This Class Can Go To Health

I hate my personal health class and it isn’t because my instructor is incapable of teaching or because she grades in biased manner.  It’s because the entire course is a little bit bias.  It’s so ridiculously focused on changing health habits of it’s students that it becomes insulting.  What if you’re of the population that is comfortable exactly as they are.

I can’t touch my toes.  I’m not a size two.  I go to the gym every two weeks when I need to blow off steam.  The last time I used my stove to cook something that wasn’t minute rice was probably 3 weeks ago.  On the flipside, I drink enough water for a small third world country daily.  I can bike the entire Monon trail in Indianapolis and back in an afternoon and feel pretty damn good.  I eat salads at least twice a day.  I don’t drink soda and I haven’t had caffeine in ten months.

I’m comfortable with those facts as they are.  I don’t feel the need to change a single one.  I can’t run a four minute mile like the guy I flirt with in class, but dare I suggest he’s  probably in a minority of the population.
