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…

Almost Had It Done!

I deleted my original post. I was almost done with it too! They whole post is gone. I know someone out there understands. If not, oh well. I had some nice pictures in the draft that I will share tomorrow or some other time this week.

I have been wearing Nike Fuel Band for a while and I do like it, I was thinking of getting something like a FitBit instead.I had a BodyBugg and I am thinking about getting it again if I don't get a FitBit. I want something to help me keep track of food and calories in and out on one site that is pretty accurate. I thought BB was accurate, but I just got tired of wearing it. The Nike Fuel Band is not as accurate as I would like and feels pretty basic. It is nice looking. But you can't track food related things.

Have you tried a Fitbit or BB or something similar? How accurate was it for you with how many daily calories that you burned in a day? Can you log your food intake into the site to compare the two?


  1. I actually tested the fitbit for work and really liked it. Though I will say after a month or so the appeal wore off. I was tired of wearing it with every outfit. I did like that it tracked how restful my sleep was. I knew I was waking up multiple times but had no idea it was as bad as fitbit showed!

    1. Did you feel that the calories you burned on the FB was accurate? The Nike Fuel Band is guesstimated, and I feel that that benefit of the band is worthless.

  2. My husband really wants a fuel band, but I have heard that isn't as accurate as other products. Since he doesn't workout too often I don't feel like spending a ton of money on something until he commits.

  3. I don't use anything like that, but would love to.
    Currently I am just using MyFitnessPal because it is a free app on my phone.
