Being in good shape requires a lot of discipline and we must make it to be our habits too that is why the old man said ” The greatest wealth in life is health and wisdom ” . Have a nice weekend coming up to all my English studying friends in here .

I am in good shape although I eat so much.I think it is thanks to drink so much water.
I am told that I am very lucky.Because I can eat whatever I want without thinking.But everyone says me this situation will change after getting married.I hope they are wrong.By the way I dont exercise routinely.Sometimes I play football.
