I have deemed 2013 as the year of my "Big Fat Midlife Crisis". In exactly 350 days, I will turn 40. Seriously, how am I knocking on the next decade's door? I still feel (and act) like I am in high school. I truthfully do not have a problem with turning 40 but I am using it as an excuse to make 2013 all about me (Well, all about me as much as three kids and working full-time will allow)!!! Here is the list of some of the things you can expect from me this year and please don't question my sanity...hence this is why I have called it my midlife crisis.
- Polar Dash- 1/1/13-DONE
- Back to school 1/14/13
- Half of a Half 10K-2/16/13
- Get Lucky Half Marathon -3/16/13
- Goldy's Run 10 Miler-4/13/13
- Grandma's Marathon -6/22/13
- YWCA Triathlon -8/18/13
- Warrior Dash -9/6/13 (though I VOWED never again, I can't pass up a good Groupon)
- Twin Cities Marathon 10/6/13
- Get a new job -ASAP (which is not as easy as it sounds)

I am back to living gluten free. After Thanksgiving, I gave up and ate whatever I wanted. I didn't realize how good I felt not having gluten in my diet until I started eating it again. Back in October I found out I had a wheat allergy and when I gave up wheat/gluten and a lot of chronic symptoms disappeared. Since I tempted fate, the headaches are back, my joints are sore, my stomach is out of control, and my sinuses are plugged. I love my beer and bread but it is not worth it to feel this way. I am looking forward to feeling better and having more energy.
