Gen X ladies, are you experiencing the quality of life you expected? Is your health preventing you from doing all the exciting things you expected at this time in your life?

After all the years of running after kids, working, and building your future, do you find yourself indulging more frequently in dinner out with your partner, a glass of wine before bed, and lazy weekends spent relaxing reading a good book?

Are you tired, rundown, and lacking energy and motivation?

I thought things were supposed to get better at this age.

Over the past eight years, I have;

  • Gained 30 pounds
  • Watched my cholesterol climb higher each year
  • Lost endurance for physical activity

I met my husband 8 years ago, and as a frugal, single mom, I was not used to traveling and going out to eat much. He taught me it is ok to order the appetizers and have a few drinks with dinner. Due to health issues, he is also not physically active, but vacations by the shore, cruises, and days spent fishing and playing card games thrilled this weary soul.
