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.

Bootcamp Butt Kicking

I got a Groupon deal a bit ago for a month of Boot Camp.

Since I am not going to Ghetto Renew anymore, I am making excuses for running in the 100 degree heat, and I always workout alone, I decided to do something new.

I have never been to this Fitness Revolution place before. Tuesday afternoon was all about the audit - basic movements, intake, ect. Next week I go in to talk about nutrition and I have to keep a food journal for a week.

3-day a week bootcamp starts tomorrow. I LOVE it when local businesses have classes around Noon. That is MY morning. And that is one of the main reasons why I grabbed the Groupon deal.

The start out each session by foam rolling, (lots of good videos on rolling here) stretching, and an active warm-up-squats and stuff. 

They have a Summer Slimdown that I may just participate in. Win $250 just for working out, losing body fat and gain some muscle.

How do you cross-train? 


  1. I have never done a boot camp and the idea still scares me somewhat. I'll look forward to hearing how you find it!

  2. I just looked up Boot Camps where I live!! Can't wait to see what you think of it! :) I think I would really love the nutrition part. :)

  3. Sounds great! My XT consists of at-home weights and corework, getting out when I can on my bike and weekly plyo intervals. The gym just doesn't happen when the kiddos are home.
