Turning 40 the Healthy Way

Monday, July 19, 2010

I will soon be turning forty. I look at this as a good and a bad thing. The bad is that it seems time is just flying by. It seems like yesterday that I turned eighteen, and now FORTY! The good is that I am determined to make this the best decade of my life. I have some chronic conditions that cannot be changed, but getting as fit as possible is something I can control and do something about.

To begin, I am having a healthy birthday. My husband and I will be going hiking in the Appalachian Mountains to celebrate. I have asked for health related birthday presents as well. I have already received a Polar HR Monitor from my Mother. I have used it for two workouts and it really makes a difference. It is wonderful to know how many calories are really being burned.

Due to the brutal summers in the American South, I workout with the Wii most days. So for my birthday, I have asked for new Wii Workout games. I have requested Wii Fit Plus, EA Sports Active More Workouts and the new Wii Gold's Gym Dance workout (coming out August 17). I am looking forward to a healthy and active decade!

    That sounds like you've got a good plan and you are hanging on to your goals. Question? I know very little of the Wii but I was curious do you know if the "Just Dance" game is kind of like Zumba or the Latin Dance crazes of late?

    Happy Birthday! Awesome presents!

    40 is a bit scary, but it is just a number. I think I looked my best at 45, so go get that health that you totally deserve!

    I'm now 46, and still looking ok (wink), but I see the wrinkles more and more. But..... when my fat first started to slide off, I started to see a different face - one that I liked, and hadn't liked since my twenties. It took almost a year for me to start getting annoyed with the wrinkles.

    I'm turning 40 soon, but it won't be nearly as healthy as yours. I do hope to be healthier by losing my excess weight though. Happy 40 and enjoy you healthy birthday! emoticon
