So I'm now well into my naughty forties.  Although, one would wonder if that is the case given the events of the past nine months.  But I digress...

I was recently (today in fact - thank you to ye who shall remain nameless) that not only had I not updated my 40 Before I Turn 40 list in a long time (i.e. YEARS), but I also haven't begun a 50 Before I Turn 50 list either.

The truth is, I wasn't supposed to be alive today.  As far as I was concerned, I had died in December 2017.  Twice.  And until the 15th of April 2018, I had been living on borrowed time.  This was a profound realisation that I came to at the end of Time Line Therapy training.  A truly life altering realisation. 

So now that I am no longer living just in the now - but with an actual future to look forward to - I am setting myself new goals.  Specifically, the following 50 items before I turn 50:

  1. Reduce my weight to 65kg (and maintain it)
