The BIG 4-0

Wednesday, December 12, 2007

Well I did it, I made it to 40. I thought it would bother me a lot more than it did. Actually, it didn't bother me at ALL. I am in such a great place in my life, I have a great career, a great marriage and most of all I have my sparkfriends and my healthy lifestyle! I never in a million years thought I would reach age 40 and be at the lowest weight in close to 15 years. I had wanted to be close to goal by now but that is okay. I'm learning to give myself a break and only do as much as I can. I'm dreaming of the day when I am below 200- SOON, VERY SOON!!!!!

My mom is recovering "ok". She was in the emergency room the day before Thanksgiving which was scary. She had a reaction to her beta blocker and went off of it. Well, her heart didn't react well to being off of it so she is on a new one, so far so good!

I joined the BL challenge and have exercised 3 days in a row. Why oh why can I not remember how good I feel when I exercise? I need to KEEP THIS HABIT GOING!!!!!!

    I Love this blog! Getting older isn't a thang! We just get better!! whooohoo!

    My step father kept having a racing heart after his open heart surgery. They said it was normal to have but they had to keep an eye on him and change his meds till something worked better. I don't know about your mom but he gets really frustrated when he can't do what he's used to doing. He HAS to rest more and he's always been very active or just plain busy!

    I so feel what your saying about exercise...and I just hate where I am right now....it's like my bootay is refusing and super glued to the couch...bad bootay...LOL I may have to slip some tacks under....
