Guess who’s 1/2 a century old??? ME! That’s who. I just celebrated my 50th birthday and had a great time doing so!
I find it very hard to say I’m 50. I just don’t like the sound of it. I know when I was 25, the age of 50 sounded soooo old and so far away! I can’t believe how time has flown by ….. I’m now 50 AND I don’t feel old at all!
I am certain there are many people who are 50+ and feel absolutely awesome and can say right along with me, that 50 is just a number. I venture to say that there are others, who don’t feel quite as well & blame how they are feeling, on their age. I truly believe that my lifestyle has everything to do with how I feel right now! I think eating to properly fuel your body is essential. I look at food in a completely different light – as opposed to how I did 10-20 years ago. I pretty much ate to get full and not be hungry anymore…..or worse, ate because I was bored or because I was at a social function and ate mindlessly while chatting and drinking. Now I pay more attention to the quality of food and where it comes from….and ask myself what it can do for my body on a nutritional level. No sense in eating something if it doesn’t serve a purpose (in my opinion). Eating this way has allowed me to have tons of energy during the day and sleep solidly at night. I wake up refreshed and ready to tackle my day!
My hubby threw me a party! Nothing too extravagant – it was held at a local bar in an outside patio area with friends and family! And it was perfect. He did good! Our friends band was playing that night so it was fun to watch him and dance the night away! I had all 3 of my kids there too (Kylie is under 21 but they let her hang out with us til 10pm 🙂 ) so that made it all the more special!
I’m looking forward to this next part of my life — and becoming a grandma in June is the most exciting! I also have my youngest graduating from high school in June so that month will be busy and fun at the same time. I believe the best is yet to come! And I’m ready for all that life has in store for me…..
