Life Begins at 40!

After 15 years of not being at all active and eating whatever I wanted (especially during my pregnancies), I could see the consequences. I was puffed out just running after the bus, I could barely keep up with my children and my elderly relatives were saying that I finally had put some flesh on my bones (a sure sign I was overweight). But a year ago, as I was approaching my 40th birthday, I decided to change my life around. I lost weight, I started powerwalking and running and then training ...

But a year ago, as I was approaching my 40th birthday, I decided to change my life around. I lost weight, I started powerwalking and running and then training for a marathon, and I started cooking more nutritious meals for me and my family. I am still not perfect every day, but have come sooo far in one year. Things can only get better still! Bring on 2009!

Thanks for your comment on my page! Indeed, I did take it easy but not too easy. I ended up running the whole time and felt fine. I don't breathe through my nose when I run anyway so running with a cold wasn't so bad! Ha! I hope your half-marathon training is going well!

Hey thank you so much!! I hope it goes well. You were definitely right - it's so different outside. I ran my final long training run last night so I'm feeling pretty positive about it. Can't wait for Saturday!

I love your SP Page line (it's one I use often as my mother used to say it too!). Like you, I think that when I hit 40 - life began again! It's a whole new world and I'm so glad to continually meet amazing people like YOU! Thanks for your note on my blog! Off I go to my workout for real now lol...
