Aging and My Mid-Life Crisis

I can't believe that I am now 40. It sounds SO OLD. But I don't feel like I should be THAT old. Its depressing. I think I'm having a harder time accepting this then I did for when I turned 30.

It's scary. To be frank and a little macabre, you have to start planning for end of life stuff. There is a lot I have yet to do with my life. But to be planning old people stuff, its scary.

How much longer am I going to live? How can I do this the healthiest that I possibly can? Should I buy life insurance for my other half and I? How can I increase our retirement savings. (Going on a cruise a couple times a year is not helping with that savings.) At what age should I sign up for AARP?

I had one friend die of Pancreatic cancer this past year. It hit him hard and sadly fast. I had another friend in November pass due to complications with pneumonia and his diabetes. I seen him in the store a week or two before he passed and he was out of it. I googled both their names when I did n…

Running the Greenbelt

I have lived in the Boise area forever. In that forever time I have never ran on the Greenbelt. I have walked and biked from one end to the next but I have never run, jogged, or in my case, slogged.

I slogged from the Firefighter Memorial to Willow Lane, filled up my water bottle, which fit perfectly inside a pocket of a pair of Adidas yoga  capris that I have had for a few years now. I will be really sad when they get a hole or the side zipper breaks, then I headed back. I did ok on the 1st mile. My knee didn't bother me, which it has for the past month because of switching to a new pair of shoes. The ball of the left foot was getting sore and my left quad was cramping at the last 1.5 mile. But I feel ok. Drove home and drank some Gatorade that has been sitting in the fridge unopened for over a month. More water and now got my 2XU socks on sitting in front of a fan. 1/2 hour I have to rest before I have to get ready for work. Ugh. Dinner may consist of a Carl's Jr. salad just in case I can't get around to making my own dinner in an hour.

My slog- 4 miles-59 minutes.

What do you eat when you just don't have time to cook or don't have time to go to the store?
