I often think about when I had various milestone birthdays in my life, and how they affected me.

I don’t really remember 20 (ha!), but 30 was HARD. I remember thinking, “wow, 30…that’s so OLD!” That seriously makes me LOL now!

When I hit 40, things were different. I definitely had some moments when I thought, “40…hmmmm…not quite sure how I feel about this.” But, it helped that my inner circle consists of women who are younger than me, and other than a couple fleeting “I’m old” thoughts, it was really ok. For the most part, now I rarely ever think about being 45.

In fact, if you told me today that I could go back to being 25, exactly as I was at 25, I’m not sure I’d want to go. With age comes wisdom and a “getting comfortable in your own skin” and a confidence that I surely did NOT have when I was 25. So, yeah, I think I’ll keep my 45…thank you very much!

Now, this is not to say that we don’t have some different challenges to face as we get older. Hormonal fluctuations, increased reactions to stress, drops in energy, little aches and pains, family changes…all of this definitely affects us and how well we age.

I think this is why there are so many “Look Hot Over 40” programs and “40 is the new 30” campaigns. We have a hard time embracing where we are NOW in our journey, so we work hard to go back to where we were. Then, we just feel defeated when it just doesn’t work.

Well I say it’s time to embrace our age and OWN IT…whether you’re in your 40’s, 50’s or beyond, wherever you are is exactly where you’re supposed to be. Are there some things that could maybe be improved upon to make the journey easier and more enjoyable…of course!


This is where the Healthy Aging Lifestyle Program comes in. I’m so excited to partner with Michelle Page of Preventative Medicine Through Food and Exercise on this 12 Week Program that will address the challenges we face as we get a little older – everything from dietary needs and specific exercise, to mindset and life changes. I truly believe that everyone deserves to not only feel happy in their body every single day, but also in their life. The two go hand in hand, and you really cannot have one without the other.

You can head over here to learn a bit more, and to also register for a free webinar Michelle and I are hosting Wednesday night, 4/1/15,  at 7:30pm ET.

Regardless, I hope you’ll start owning your age – be proud and shout it out. And just for fun, hashtag your decade on social media and show everyone how proud you are: #40isthenew40, #50isthenew50 and so on. Have fun with it and be sure to tag me as well:
