View Full Version : Turning 40 and getting healthy with my hubby

02-06-2012, 04:52 AM
Hi everyone. I am really excited about this journey. My husband and I moved to Northern Ireland last May with our son who is 8. We moved from Canada and wanted to try something different. My husband retired from work and now we get to spend every day together. We both enjoyed working out but never were able to do it together consistently before. Since October we have been back to the gym and loving it. We have both lost weight and are getting our muscles back. Today we started on a 12 week program so we could see how far we have come. I am turning 40 in June and really want to live a healthy life. We both are not super unhealthy but both were feeling lack luster. Since we have been going to the gym together we have also found a new passion for each other too which is also probably because we have more time. My husband is 4 years older than me and he was not happy about turning 40. He wishes he had more energy or the energy he had when he was 20. He is an ex weightlifter and is always able to get his muscles back pretty quickly. He is super hot when he is working out!!! totally different personality!!! Anyway just wanted to start this journey and start blogging my progress so here we go!!

You Canadians.

You look like us. You talk like us for the most part. You send your actors down here without telling us they are Canadian. You hide amongst us in the open. Sometimes you are found out when an "Aboot" , an "Eh", or "kilometer" slips out.

Thank God you are on our side, otherwise you could take over and we would never know! ;)
