40 by 40

Inspired by similar blog posts from friends ... I am setting a list of 40 things I want to do by the time I am 40.

That's not that long. A little over 15 months away. So if I want to do it I need to get moving!

Not all of them are fitness/weightloss based. But it's funny that way. Find inspiration to change your life in one way ... and the flow on effect follows through to the rest of your world!

So here it is. My 40 by 40!

  1. Learn to run again
  2. Run the Mother's Day Classic again
  3. Attend another 12wbt finale
  4. Help grow the Warwick Crew to have regular SSS and mini milestones together.
  5. Learn to swim better
  6. Read a book for fun every month
  7. Change up my wardrobe. I want a lot less clothes but I what I have I want to match, work together and truly feel like my sense of style.
  8. Renovate our bathroom
  9. Develop an area in our home for a home workout zone and use it.

  1. I love your list, Kath. I'm 40 in a little under 20 months, so not too far behind you! You've inspired me to focus on that milestone and some personal (not necessarily health and fitness related) goals, too. We seem to have a lot in common - family history, photo books, daughters etc. Thanks, Sarah
