My birthday is October 10, 1973. That means 2013 is the year I turn 40! I am not scared of it, I am not dreading it, I don’t think I will feel any different. As a matter of fact, I have a lot to accomplish this year. I am planning on running/walking/crawling my third St. George Marathon on October 5, just 5 days before my 40th birthday.
However, as I sit here and look at my day planner (yes, I have an actual day planner) I am wondering if this is what a week in an almost 40 year old actually looks like. Here is my schedule for this week:
Monday, January 14th……Foot Doctor 1:30 p.m.
Tuesday, January 15th….Deep Tissue Sports Massage 1:00 p.m.
Wednesday, January 16th…Chiropractic Appointment 1:00 p.m.
Thursday, January 17th……Amara Med Spa meeting with Gay Sleight for blood work 11:00- 1:00
Friday, January 18th…..Hair appointment to hide the grey 2:15 p.m.
Aside from the hair appointment, I am not doing any of this for vanity’s sake. My foot doctor, massage therapist, and chiropractor are all required for me to accomplish that 3rd Marathon. Yes, it takes 3 very talented guys in their respective fields to tackle all of my ailments.
In August I went gluten, dairy, soy and egg free. We did it because of our boys journey in Brain Balance for their ADHD and ADD. It has been an amazing transformation for them and me. I no longer have to take up to 3200 mg of Ibuprofen on a daily basis anymore. I am not inflamed anymore. I can think more clearly. I even weigh less now than when I graduated high school. I love it! However, I still feel “off”. I can’t put my finger on it, but I just don’t feel balanced. That is why I am going to see Gay Sleight at Amara Med Spa. I have heard wonderful things about what she can do. I must admit though, that the thought of going to a Medical Spa is intimidating for me. Everyone is so pretty. I have taken on a pretty natural approach to how I treat my body. I have 100% Pure make-up with “no chemicals”. I clean my face with coconut oil. We eat very little processed food. I don’t drink soda, but something is out of balance. I can feel it. I am anxious to see what Gay finds with her more in depth blood work. I hope you don’t mind me sharing this journey with you. I would love to hear from those of you ‘who are almost 40′ or ‘who crossed that bridge awhile ago’.
I need to go now and get all my medical stuff ready for Gay…I probably should warn her that I am usually the exception to the rule when it is anything medical. Just ask any of the 3 guys mentioned above.
