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…


I have lots of cravings. Usually it is something carby, like bread or chocolate.

It is often my sweet tooth acts up.

Like, everyday.

Holla! Yeah, I attempted Challah once and it didn't rise since the house was cold. But it was tasty!
I am not one to deny myself something I want, either. 

But, before this whole marathon thing, I ate a lot of salads. I think it even helped with some weight loss.

I am now craving said salads.

With the BF home alone for a few days after Thanksgiving and the dread of dealing with the super busy and super packed Costco, we have ate the fridge bare. I like to get the super big packs of spinach and broccoli and carrots and use that as a base for a salad. Everyday. But with no Costco visits for a couple of weeks, that means I have to get smaller packs of veggies at the grocery store, and they get consumed pretty fast.

I forced my BF to go to Costco today to get salad veggies.

This is seriously a first. I never thought I would be one of THOSE girls that eat all healthy and crap and crave salads. I used to make fun of the BF eating spinach everyday, and now I am doing it too!

There isn't even any chocolate or sugar other then the natural carbs the veggies come with!

My tummy will be shocked and happy with this salad I made for dinner tonight at work.

Spinach, carrots, broccoli, chickpeas and cottage cheese.

Now, I have to take care of my nearly a pot of day coffee craving.
