Now as I am 9 months off turning 40 I am actually a shitload fitter and stronger than I was back then... and I finally did something about my knees. It only took me 10 years, but you can't rush these things! I wish I had the body and strength I had now back then. Or I listened to my physio and did my knee rehab properly the first time! Oh well - as they say, you live and learn.
A lot of other things have changed in the last 10 years - I'm now married, we are living in our second house together and we have our gorgeous little furbaby! There have been many laughs and many tears over the years as well - the loss of Grandma and Pop, both in the same year... but also a number of overseas trips, Bon Jovi Fan Club trips and a big career change.
I still have a number of things I want to do and achieve before I'm 40. I put the question out on Facebook to my friends on what they suggest to add to my list... and I'd love to hear your thoughts :) I plan on making a list of things that will push me out of my comfort zone, but also be achievable within my means!
So... here's to 40 and being 100% fabulous!!
