40 days

There are 40 days until I’m 40 years old.

I’m having a pretty hard time wrapping my head around that right now.  Not because I feel old, because I don’t.  That’s the point I guess I still feel like a twenty year old, in my head, sometimes. I can’t even believe I’m a grownup. I have kids!  I’m somebody’s wife. Good God when did all that happen? Aren’t we going out dancing tonight?

I have forty days until I’m forty and I’m going to make the most of it.  I am going to start my 40th year fit in mind and body.  Organized and in control.  A grown up.

Today I started Jillian Michaels‘ Six Pack Abs to try to reverse the damage three kids have done to my mid section. I am reading The Four Hour Body by Tim Ferriss to lose fat and live better and longer.  I don’t just want to be skinny again, although the thought of wearing my white capris again this summer does make me a bit giddy. I want to be fit. I want to have more energy. I want to be a fun mom that isn’t always tired.

I have incredible friends that I don’t spend nearly enough time with.  I need to pick up the phone and get in the car more.

The same goes for my family.  More Sunday dinners and time well spent together.

We changed banks and in the process of saying goodbye to the evil empire (BOA) I will say hello to a budget. Financial reform starts at home.

Get my kids on a schedule.  The baby is finally ready and Big Brother needs it.

My husband, oh my husband. We need more date nights. More girlfriend/ boyfriend time.

Lots of stuff here and I know I’ve missed some because I only just realized 15 minutes ago that it was 40 days till 40, and gosh that’s a good blog post, right.  I had a few minutes with no kids yelling at me so here I am.  I’ll fill it in as I move through these forty days. No time like the present, right?  I could just sit here and think about all the things I want to improve.  I could even just write it down.  Then what?  Well when I hit publish you know about it too.  The universe KNOWS!

Let’s go!

How did this happen?

And yes, there is a before body picture that I will only post AFTER!
