Please believe the hype – forty truly is fabulous. I can’t say what it is like for all forty years old women. But for me (and most of my friends) - It’s an age where my children are out of the baby stage, my career is getting into a grove, my marriage is fun and comfortable. I have made peace with my stretch marks and I have finally forgiven my children for my saggy boobs. In fact, now that I have a great bra - I have really have started to appreciate my body.

Basically life is pretty good – my only annoyance is the hormones. And no I am not talking about “the change of life”. Menopause – that I am prepared for and can deal with – nope I am talking about the 16 year old – hormonal teenager that has taken over my body.

My hormones are on fire – I feel like a 16 year teenage boy…. All I think about is sex – seriously. Trust me on this – it is actually embarrassing. For example I got distracted mid conversion with girlfriends – because a rather nice looking and smelling man walked by. This isn’t so bad – except I was the one talking at the time. Or the time I made a grown man blush, because of the way I looked at him. The sad part was I wasn’t even thinking about him. At first my husband loved all the attention – but now my advances are met with …“really again?!”

How do teenage boys make it through high school? If the average male thinks about sex 13 times a day. I can only image how much a teenage boy thinks about it.

I do have some theories on this new stage in my life. I believe it the combination of a few things - I am no longer worried about getting pregnant. At every stage in my life ... I have always worried about pregnancy (avoiding it or trying to make it happen.) I am in a committed relationship... I have the privilege of being with someone that knows and loves me. I am comfortable in my own skin. And while cross fit three times a week helps - There is something extremely sexy about acceptance of yourself. And last I’m young enough to still do it and old enough to do it really well.

Forty is a great age. And for all you young ladies that have so much on your plate that sex is the last thing on your mind - 1) I completely understand and 2) let your spouse know –the pendulum will swing the other way – and that forty is fabulous. And as for me I am hoping that I eventually level out – thinking about sex all the time is exhausting… at least for my hubby.
