Turning 40 - blessed and balanced

Wednesday, July 22, 2009

So this Friday I turn 40! My goal has been to be fabulous at 40. Well I have made it, differently than I originally had planned but I made it. I had set a goal weight for my bday and as life would have it in the last two weeks I went from being a few pounds away from it to adding an additional five pounds. I would have normally flipped out from the gain but life is short and at almost 40 I realize that life is not a number.
I have a lot to be proud of including my first 5K, my training, my overall phyical health and sanity of course : ) IBalance is key, I am now mature enough to realize that life is about enjoying my family ( yes I ate a hot fudge Sunday with my kids last week), eating at resturants while on vacation and not stressing about every calorie.
I am balanced enough to know that once I get my diet back on track and up my exercise, the pounds will gothey arenot here to stay, its temporary.
So here is to 40! Blessed and balanced!

  Great job! I turn 40 next April. I also want to be fabulous, but maybe I shouldn't define that by a number on the scale. Thanks for the inspiration! Happy (almost) Birthday! emoticon

    Enjoy 40. I did that birthday last year. This year I've decided to do 39 again, better than ever before! It looks like you are aging in reverse, too. Congratulations on all that you have achieved.
