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.

Tuesday Training

I wanted to run, again, today.

But no. Having to walk around all night at work afterwards didn't seem like much fun. I like to prop my feet up, have a drink,  and rest after after a long run. Not walk around at work for 8 hours.

I just did 1 mile around my neighborhood after I lifted some weights for a half hour.

A fast-for-me mile.
I did rows, flys, presses, thrusters, lat pulldowns, tris and bis. Basically, what I did here, but on the bench presses, I used 2 20 pound dumbbells. AND I remembered my gloves! My hands were not hamburger after I was done lifting!

What was your workout today? Are you and your loved ones safe after this cray-cray weather?


  1. I did an easy 2 miler and some core work. :)

  2. I did a short run last night in my pirate costume with my run club. I was raining the whole time which was lame, but it wasn't cold so I can't complain. Today I have 4 miles and then farmgirlfit. I am so sore still from farmgirlfit on Monday. Hopefully I am moving tomorrow!
