I stared down this big birthday like you stare down a green light as you speed up to an intersection, nearing that point where you don’t think you can stop in time if it turns. Well, it turned. I turned 40. But I made it and feel good about it. For now anyways. I’ve gone back and forth and sideways about my feelings regarding this age. Have I done enough to be proud? Can I say I have no regrets? Am I eating great? Have I gone everywhere I want to go? I think I can answer mostly yes to all. I like to say that you’re only as old as people think you are, and for the most part, people think I’m younger. Except kids – they are all over the place. They either think your 18 or 47. Anyways, I’m not taking it too seriously, just like how I try to take myself all the time – not too seriously. I say what I want and try to make myself and others laugh. I try to stay fit, eat healthy but indulge here and there. I drink. Life is good. I made my goal weight, under at that, and feel great going into a vacation of total indulgence – Napa and then an Alaskan cruise!! Stay tuned!!
Meanwhile, I made a great breakfast after a short but meaningful run with my pup. Fresh eggs with shiitake mushrooms, tomatoes, greens, fresh ricotta and bacon jam with some blackberries on the side! Delish!!
