Ageless Beauty & the Over 40 Syndrome

By Datingdiva40 @datingdiva40

Love this blogger and her site. http://www.dishydivorcee.com/

I used to be really cute, like Jennifer Aniston mid-“Friends” cute. But my cute-quotient has modified with age. I have fallen victim to the 40 & over syndrome. I reached four decades this last February. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve held up pretty well, but suddenly beauty secrets for +40 women have batter-rammed their way into my daily life. More Magazine has replaced Glamour and Cosmo on my coffee table. Lately, I find myself distracted by female celebrities that have withstood the test of time (I’m 90% certain Halle Berry and Cindy Crawford are not of this universe). My ears perk to the sounds of: cellulite firming, eye lifting, wrinkle reducing, and ageless skin. Granted, this is exactly what the marketers want and I, well, I am simply putty in their hands. Over the last few weeks, I have purchased three exercise programs; Jillian Michael’s 30 Day Shred, Zumba and the 6 Week Body Makeover.

1.The 6-Week Body Makeover has yet to arrive. I’m on pins and needles with this one due to a self-imposed 4 week goal to get in the best shape of my life.

2.Jillian Michael’s video is still in plastic. Sorry, Jillian, but you scare the crap out of me. It had to have been some sort of voo-doo hypnosis that forced my hand to purchase your exercise video from Target.

3.Zumba has defeated me. I haven’t successfully passed “the basics”; due to the FIFTY dance steps I’m required to learn. In the meantime, crunches reign – from celery crunches to stomach crunches – all in an effort to bring back my batta-bing.

Since divorcing, I’ve read several self-help books including; How to Heal a Broken Heart in 30 Days. According to the author, I need to be physically and emotionally confident to move on. I should be able to look in the mirror and say, “I’m hot, I’m sassy and damn it, I’m worth it!” Bottom line, self improvement is and always will be a work in progress.
