Over 50s Mommy

This tribe is for Moms over 50 with kids under 10. Somewhere between birth hormones and menopausal hormones there must be a place for those of us who are "late developers". This is the place to share both the successful and the less-than-successful strategies for getting or staying strong whilst raising young children in the pre and post-menopausal years.

Jennifer C Over 50s Mommy Tribe

Contributorsilver Jennifer C It's been a very difficult few months. My goal of being fitter by summer was seriously derailed by my mom's cancer diagnosis in February and her death at the end of April. I'm still in the shock phase of grieving, probably because of all of the care-taking of others I've needed to do since her death. My dad needed my help going through my mom's things, my daughter was busy with school, friends and ballet and swimming, l had my own volunteer work at her school, my husband is travelling more than usual for work and on top of it all, I've been doing our business bookkeeping and tax prep.

The fact that I've lost my mom has starting to sink in more and more now that life has become less frantic.School and lessons have nearly finished, my volunteer commitment is done, I've applied for a waiver on late filing of our taxes and my dad feels less panicky about going through things.

So I'm hoping I can now reset the fitness button and get back on track to at least work toward improvement by my 54th birthday in September. Needless to say, comfort food has been big on the shopping list of late. I am proud of the fact that I've managed to run/walk at least 3-4 times a week for the last month or so, and also doing my home cross train routine 2 - 3 times a week too. Portion control and snacking are my nemeses at the best of times but it's really been out of control. Wish me luck!
