My 43rd birthday weekend just passed. I'm not afraid to share my age and I have to say I am pretty happy where I am at at this point...It's taken 43 years of hard work to get here. Life isn't always rainbows and sunshine. I'm a wife, a mother, a caregiver, I'm athletic, but I wouldn't call myself an athlete. Leading a healthy life is important to me. Trying to balance all of these aspects isn't always easy, sometimes feels like a strategic game.
In the past several years I've cleaned house on my life. This meant, and it wasn't all part of some big plan and didn't happen all at once, it kind of had a snowball effect, one step lead me to the next, I quit smoking, began running, strength training, boot camps and boxing, I was and still am up for anything active. Love playing not so professional games of tennis, just for fun, hiking, getting outside in anyway, love constantly changing up and having a verity of activities I enjoy. I don't like or want to be restricted to one activity there's too much to explore, to live. I honestly can't sit still for too long now, complete opposite of me in my 20's &30's Also began weeding out the people and situations in my life that weren't healthy for me. Removed myself from situations that made me uncomfortable. This at times meant hurting relationships and making others stronger even if it didn't seem so at the time. I began standing up for myself and began to not care what people think about me, what or how I do things. At this point I live and focus on me and mine not others. I'm okay and happy with how I do me, don't need anyone else to be.
All of these things have made my life, not perfect, but healthy in many ways and I plan to continue to keep working on me for as long as I am able.
We are handed one life, live it and respect it! ✌😘 #fitover40 #healthylife #fitlife #fitforme #girlswithmuscle #strongnotskinny #stronggirls #bodymindandspirit #liveforyou 😘
