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…

I Has A Sad

I found this little gem at the thrift store this week.

It is a BodyBugg by Body Media. I bought one around 2008 or so.

March 2015
And I bought one off of eBay last year to help with me winning the weight loss challenge. I tried not to have it showing when I was out and about because I didn't want my competition to get one too! Above is a very rare pic capture of me wearing it!

I really liked this tool. When I got one however many years ago or so it helped me track my steps (I was working graveyard at the time) and I was doing over 20,000 steps a day. This was before I started running and tried to beat my walking steps at work. 20,000+ JUST on my shift at work.

But today. I was at the thrift store and my other half found it and showed it to me. I wound up getting it even though the eBay prices were not what they were last year at all. I resold the blue and white one above after I was done with my use of it last year and got my money back on it.

Last year I knew that BodyMedia (Bodybuggs maker) was acquired be Jawbone. But now, the redirects to Jawbones site.
So sad.

Gotta get rid of the competition. I really liked that bugger. And I was pretty excited that the other half found a PINK one for me. I like my pink things. But its basically a useless paperweight now. And that makes me sad.

Have you ever used a BodyBugg? What fitness tracker do you use? Do you think it is accurate in tracking steps, calories, ect?
