Here I am on week two of my 6 Week Body & Mind Makeover Challenge which I started last week. I have a few people keeping tabs on me and reminding me that because I’ve put it out there that I’m making some fitness/nutritional changes and setting myself new goals, I have to actually do it! Now, seeing as a lot of the time I’m all trackies and no trainers, that is the difficult part for me BUT I promised you updates and so updates you will get – and I also promise that they will be absolutely truthful and contain my health and fitness sins as well as my triumphs – if there are any 😉 So, here goes…

Like many bloggers, I’ve had my ups and downs in the blogosphere. Some days I’ve been excitedly making plans about what I could write about or how I could develop my blogging skills, maybe by learning more about photography, attending blogging courses and meeting up with other like-minded bloggers. Other days I’ve been a bit ‘meh, blogging schmogging’. And sadly, it’s been more of the latter vibe lately.

Research has shown that one of the many excuses we use for not getting off our butts and starting an exercise plan is expense.

Starting a blog in your forties can be pretty daunting. Especially when you look around the ‘blogsphere’ and see that it’s brimming with effervescent, bright-as-a-button 20 somethings who have their artfully manicured fingers on the pulse of what’s hot and what’s not. So, what’s a 46 year old mum with suspect taste in glittery/leopard print stuff and a love of feel-good things to do? Give up and say “oh well, it’s their time now, best I pack away my creaky old ideas and get back to the kitchen sink”? Hell, no (although it has crossed my mind a few times since starting Glowology). What is my blog about if it’s not about helping us ordinary, fabulous women in our 40’s and beyond feel vital and relevant in today’s ‘obsessed with youth’ society? And no matter how insecure or unsure us over 40’s might sometimes feel, this round up of my favourite, brilliant over 40 style bloggers, shows that we have something those whipper snapper, young ‘uns haven’t got (and it’s not just hot flushes) It’s life experience! And that alone makes us worth listening to…so read on!
