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.

The Rain Forest Blend that I opened as soon as I got home was surprisingly good, and there is a good chance I will be getting more.

2. I slogged 3 miles this afternoon. Either it was the wind, or the crappy sleep I got last night (I guess that is what I get for such good sleep the night before) I really had a hard time. Maybe it was hard because I have spent so much time on the treddy and not much time outdoors. Whatever it was, I was very slow,  but got it done.


3. I have signed up for Daily Vitamin F Thanksgiving 5K virtual run. I am not on cooking on T-day, I plan on cooking on Black Friday, so I will have time to get a little sweat on next Thursday. Sweat with us!

  1. I ran about 7 ish miles today- First speed workout for me since March! It was awesome. Not running a turkey trot since I will be at the Oregon Coast, but I will go running before stuffing my face. :-)
