I'm 50. The big FIVE O. Yep. It's one of those milestones. I remember turning sweet 16. I remember my 21st bday. I remember turning 30.....40....then there was 45. For some reason that one hit me a little hard. I just felt like...wow! Whoa. Hold up. Yes, I know I was really looking forward to this age....but then my body changed, cause it does - you don't have a choice in the matter - and I was a little taken a back. And now I'm 50! I'm processing.
I headed out this morning and I did a little running. I walked a block and ran a block. I did it. At first, it was a little hard. I do enjoy walking much more. But I just need the rush. I needed the heart pounding, body is shaking and coming alive feeling. I decided a walk/run was the way to go. I took a picture after, and I'll tell you, I feel okay. How do I look? Am I glowing? I feel like I'm glowing? I got home and did some squats, pushups, and the plank. Not a lot. I'm a little out of shape. But that's ok. I did about 10 each. I held plank for about 15 seconds. Let me tell you, if you haven't done plank, try it. It's not as easy as it looks. I just want to go at it slow. I don't need to be a powerhouse workout queen. That's not my thing. I just want to feel good. I want my body to feel alive, awake, aware and feeling ALL RIGHT to enter the 50 plus club.
The 50 + club is REALLY nice. People are sooooo nice to me. They welcome me with open arms, we chat about stuff, and I just feel....it's is nice in here. I even got a free latte and muffin yesterday because the woman who owns one of the coffee joints I frequent wanted to treat me. How nice is that! She was giving me tips on how to process and feel better about turning 50. She's a little bit more experienced and knew the ropes. It was really nice chatting with her. I've had friends clap and cheer for me. It feels good.
So...I didn't do a podcast this morning. I'm thinking to change things up a little. I've been singing more, getting creative, and shaking things up. Why? Because I'm liking myself more and more every day and I want to share that with you. Not the I like ME stuff - but learning how to self friendship - the tools I use- offer help - because YOU deserve that too. We all do. We all deserve to be our own best friend.
Mental Girl is cheering me on to do a new fun podcast. So stay tuned.
I'll still do Clickity Clak. I like that. I like taking pictures and sharing stuff I see and appreciate with you all.
