Like everyone else, I spent my twenties acting like a moron and loving every minute of it, never considering the fact that the phase might end.

However, my twenties are over, and suddenly, uncomfortably, things have changed.

It started with a conversation a couple of years ago, when my friends and I pondered whether or not we'd ever become one of those people who ran for pleasure and posted annoying status updates about their spin classes. Of course we wouldn't, we decided. What was wrong with those people? Slowly but surely, however, the group of little Judases have gone to the dark side, and now I find myself in the minority. I scroll through Facebook, mouth agape with horror at all of the healthy meals people are creating and consuming, and all the fitness classes which have suddenly become a part of everyone's lives.
