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…

How To Recover & Shopping Goodies

I guess the best way to recover from my funk of the last few weeks is just to drink some water, take a multivitamin, a vitamin D, and get my workout shoes on.

I feel so much better after doing 4miles at ghetto renew. I really shoulda done more but 4 is good enough to perk me up. I did my 1st mile at 4.7 at 1.0 incline. Then I hopped off to get the fan. I really don't like the feeling of the crook of my arms dripping sweat. And the room smelled really dusty. The fan helped with all of that. I did 3 more miles at 5.0-7.3 at a -3 to a +3.0 incline. I even foam rolled my IT bands after I was done. My right side is painful. I am doing some serious stretching as my calves are achy and my right knee is bothering me. I think its all because of my shoes.

I went food shopping this weekend. This is some of the goodies that is helping me carb up. I don't need the carbs, but they sure are tasty. 
A little high in calories. But aren't all tasty carby things. Drank half the Darigold Refuel after my ghetto renew sweat fest today. So tasty.

I drink box wine, cuz we high class on the Boise Bench. 'ight.

Have you had these chips? OMG they are so good. I had to tape the bag shut because I could go through the whole bag. These chips are better then the cereal that Nature Valley had at one time. I only got them because yesterday they were next to the Doritos at Costco & the BF didn't want Doritos. These are better then Doritos. So good.

What sort of shopping goodies have you bought lately? What was your workout today?
