SO I can't believe I am hitting 40 next month! It's really starting to hit me. I broke down and made some Dr appointments. One with "Women's Health".... I have been BAD and not gotten a female exam in 4-5 yrs. I figure 40 is a good time to get that taken care of. Will I have to start with the mammograms? My hubby (a nurse) seems to think they changed the age to 45 unless you have a family history or any lumps.
I also made an appointment for a general checkup with a regular Dr. I am hoping to get a cholesterol test and all of the other blood work done to see if I am healthy. I am going to talk to him about what an ideal weight for me is.... that question has been nagging me for ages. I am also hoping he will get me a referral to physical therapy for my foot issue and see what he thinks about cortisone shots. I really want to start running again, but keep telling myself that summer and the dreadful heat is a GOOD time to be out with an injury.... but hopefully by fall I will be back in shape to run.
UGH!!!! I don't know why 40 is making me so anxious. It feels like a whole new phase of life and even though I am physically in the greatest shape of my life I feel so anxious! Age has never bothered me before---- I have never yearned to be younger. DH is 6 yrs older than me so he got through it OK, most people think I am already 40+ (lol---jerks!)...
I'll make it.... just needed to vent. Any positive turning 40 stories would be much appreciated!
I just cannot believe how much more awesome CrossFit can get! How did this become such an obsession? My shy, quiet, private, reserved self is just a socializing fool at the "box". I am getting so much out of the community, family atmosphere down there. Last weekend we did a hero workout ("Glen") which is: 30 Clean and Jerks, run a mile, 10 rope climbs--- WHICH I DID!!!!, run ANOTHER mile, then 100 burpees. It took me just over an hour. Then we had a Paleo pancake breakfast. So much fun! And this past Tuesday we ran a 6K, then did 60 burpee pullups. I loved it because running is my strength in CrossFit (I'm kind of a weakling at the weight stuff) and I nailed the 6K... 100+ degree heat and all. My burpee pullups were kind of lame, but at least I got in a great workout. ARGH!!!! I love it so much. It's all I think about.... :)
