Couldn't have done it any earlier really, worked in the city up until 14yrs ago then gave up career to be house husband, my son now 14 & able to fend for himself to some extent. It's just good to be able to start a career again at 50.

Well I’m 40 next month and physically fitter and healthier then I’ve ever been. I train every morning at home at 5am, I’ve done Shaolin Boxing, I do pole fitness and MMA as well as the Toughmudder challenges. I definitely eat healthier then ever in my life and I’ve given the youngsters I work with in a pupil referral unit a run for their money....none could do as many press ups as me :slzi: they challenge and are gutted that (a) I’m a female and (b) I’m apparently old....although they save it with saying I look around 30. But more importantly, it’s the mindset and maturity that comes with life experience, regardless of age. My belief is that your body believes you can do anything your brain tells it. But I’m a sucker for a good tipple :slsm:
