15 Ways 20-Somethings Ruin Their Twenties

 

We’ve all been there. Here’s an excerpt from the Thought Catalog blog:

You’ll find that the rumors are true, and your metabolism moves slower than a snail at the DMV as you get older. If you continue washing down brownies with Mountain Dew and discounting the value of working out, you will pay. I assure you that once you’ve officially gotten out of shape, it’s so much harder to get fit. The mere sight of a treadmill will make you want to run anywhere but on it.
