Obesity Rate: 23.9%

Portland is dotted with dog parks, doctors offices and "no smoking" signs--which add up to impressive health stats.
No. 4: Seattle, Wash.
Obesity Rate: 22.8%
Exercise Rate: 81.9%
The Pacific Northwest either produces or attracts health citizens. Seattle scores high by providing physical education classes for kids and tennis courts for adults.
No. 3: Minneapolis, Minn.
Obesity Rate: 23.9%
Exercise Rate: 84.3%
A penchant for exercise offsets slightly above-average obesity rates in the Twin Cities.
No. 2: Boston, Mass.
Obesity Rate: 19.9%
Exercise Rate: 78.6%
Boston's relatively affluent population avoids cigarettes and stays trim. The state also mandates that all its residents have health insurance.

Obesity Rate: 22.6%
Exercise Rate: 80.1%
America's fittest city is Washington D.C. It scores high on almost every measure of fitness, whether it's bicycling commuters, farmers' markets or recreation centers.

I was walking around campus and this little sunflower caught my eye. I though it was so beautiful physically ,metaphorically and symbolically speaking. Let me explain..in my mind I stopped because this little sunflower was all by itself courageous enough to bloom and leave the others behind and be beautiful on its on with not much shrubbery around it. Of course not literally but figuratively speaking this little flower does not care what other flowers are doing but its focused on its well being and Independence....thats it independence the courage to stand alone...that was my whole thought process when I seen that flower... Only if people could learn how to stand alone and not care what other people say and let go of their inhibitions and do something like dance when ever one is watching just because you want to but nowadays everybody is caught up with self image and just trying to "be" ....lol I think alot about the most random things I know.
HAD TO NAME THE POST AFTER A CUDI BAR IT WAS ONLY RIGHT
