I thought that today I would switch it up a little and make some of you guys chuckle a bit. As most of you know I am now 31. Now for you over 30s you are probably shaking you head and calling me a baby right now. Back off old timers and let me morn my 20s! Lol just kidding;) Like I said, I am now 31. No I don’t have wrinkles or a cane but I do feel my body changing. I have been trying the past two years to deny my 30s and just keep on acting like I’m in my 20s and keep doing things that I used to.
In my 20s I was pretty active despite my size. Went on lots of adventures. Once I turned 30, things with my body started changing, in everyway. Long walks and or workouts, turn into days of recovery. Nights out are far in the distance and sleeping in past 8 oclock makes me feel groggy the rest of the day.
Last week I went to the beach with my Kentucky family and I was super pumped! I love swimming in the ocean and playing on the beach all day. The first day we were on the beach a couple of hours and it felt like I had been there all day. I could feel the waves knocking me down more and my feet sank faster then years past. Then the second day I felt so energetic. We were on the beach by 9:30 and I was ready for a day of fun! The night before we got an awesome football and I was looking forward to tossing it around. My cousin and I began the back and forth with the football. Joking and laughing and just having a blast! I went up for a perfect catch and caught it! I came down in a tumble that would render me useless for the rest of the trip. I broke my foot! Needless to say, I can’t jump around like I used to.
One thing I did come away with all this is, I have a wonderful family. I have a great support system and everyone has taken such good care of me. Am I still young? Yes. I just don’t feel as spry as I used to. Things like jumping up for a great pro football catch will have to be better executed on a different surface and maybe a few pounds lighter. I’ve never been one to let my weight get in my way. I have always done what everyone else does but this time it bit me in the toosh! I hope you enjoyed this blog and if you are in your early 30s and denying it. Don’t! Embrace your 30s and proceed with caution! LOL!
