My New Year's Resolution..Just in time for my 40th!

Saturday, January 01, 2011

I resolve to eat clean, work out regularly, finish my half marathon, lose about 20 pounds of FAT, and feel GREAT! (Oh yeah, and get a job!)

Since i will be turning 40 in late February, this New Years resolution is more about getting to where I want to be by then. All my life, people have told me I look younger than I am. Lately when someone asks me how old I am, they have no problems believing me. Ugh. I think that's what's making turning 40 SO HARD for me. I resolve to get back to looking like I did before - much younger than I really am.

I've been exercising regularly and working hard on my half marathon training. I've got that down. I just now need to get my eating CLEAN, CLEAN, CLEAN! Also, I don't weigh myself so I will never determine my fitness level by my body weight. I just need to get into my bikini and old jeans!

    I have just finished reading "40+ and Fabulous: Moving Forward Fierce, Focused, and Full of Life!" by Sondra Wright. I have learned that I can still become who I want to be well into my 40's... it exposes opportunities and possibilities that are comparable, if
    not superior to those available in earlier life stages. You can achieve your goals

    Good for you! I wish I'd done that when I was 40! I was 50 when I did it and can say -- boy -- it's a great goal.

    I had two people within two months recently tell me they couldn't believe my age (50!) because I look so much younger. Believe me, they would not have said that last year.

    You can do it! Go for it!
