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!
