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…

Two For Tuesday

Tuesday quickie post here.

Gotta get some last minute cramming studying in this since semester finals are next week! I think I can take my final this weekend though.

1. Did my scheduled workout for today. 4 dreadmill miles. Somedays, treadmill runs are easy and I love them. Somedays I just want to stand on the edges and let the belt run...
Or just get me some rollerblades.

 But I slogged through it minus the rollerblades.

Don't I just look excited to be getting ready to workout!

Maybe I was dreading the workout is because I can't really go much faster then 5.0 for most of my treadmill run because this clubhouse treddy is so ghetto, the machine will shut off while you are running. It's happened more then once, and for some reason the management has not fixed it and it's been a problem for about 4 years.

Dear BF-I need my own treadmill in the living room. Please.

2. Good news is that I got a sample of Drinkwel in the mail yesterday. Vitamins for people who drink. 

I have had their ad on my blog for a while, feel free to click it at any time. ;-)

I drink. I work out. I have a hard time drinking enough water in the winter. My liver has to hate me. This is a product I am very interested in trying.

I have a 18 miler due this weekend. Is there anyone in the Boise area wanna slog a few of the miles with me to keep me company on the greenbelt?

Do you have any tips for cramming studying for finals?

How do you drink enough water and stay hydrated in the winter?


  1. Lol! I love that first picture! I have been feeling that way as of late. I LOVE my treadmill, but it's outside and it's cold out there! I think that I have to just get adjusted to running out in the colder temps.

  2. oh my gosh - my treadmill at work is the same way. It starts to shake, and i am terrified it might actually explode.

  3. Great job getting that treadmill run in! That first picture is hilarious!!! Hope you have an awesome 18 miler this weekend!!! And good luck with the finals!
