This Is 40 GiveawayI remember how excited I was when I was younger for each birthday that came.  It was a time to have fun with family and friends, open presents and eat cake and ice cream.  Not that I’m almost 34 (oh my gosh – did I really just say that without having to calculate in my head?), birthdays are getting a little scarier.  I know that with the upcoming changes in age will come major changes in life.  Ya know, like menopause, wrinkles, grey hair (oh wait I already have that), among other things.

That being said, I found the movie, This Is 40, even funnier!  I mean, I have never lied about my age or made everyone celebrate the same age year after year, but I totally got where Pete and Debbie were coming from.  This made the movie even funnier!  I am actually planning on have a Girl’s Night In, where we’ll watch This Is 40, eat goodies, drink wine, and laugh together!  Have you seen This Is 40 yet?


This Is 40 is now available in the Blu-ray Combo Pack with the Unrated Version, DVD, Digital Copy and Ultraviolet.  A midlife milestone sends a long-married couple into an uproarious tailspin in This Is 40.  Audiences fell in love with contentiously loving couple Pete and Debbie in Judd Apatow’s comedy sensation Knocked Up.  Five years later, Apatow reunites with his hilarious creations as Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann reprise their roles as husband and wife balancing the challenges and rewards of marriage and parenthood with the milestone of turning 40.


With activities like yoga, spinning and pilates, you won’t need Bodies by Jason!  Stay young and fit like Debbie with these fun ways to workout at 40 and beyond.

This is 40 Cardio


Forty-five minutes of cardio five days a week is just enough to help keep you looking fit and fabulous in your forties.  In your 20s and 30s, you can do less days per week of cardio for similar effects, but your forties you can do less intense exercises more days per week to help maintain a youthful physique.  Find a fun exercise that gets your heart pumping, like running, Zumba, etc.!

This is 40 Pilates


Doing Pilates on a regular basis has a number of great health benefits.  Among them are better body awareness and control and ability to help strengthen your core.  Pilates can also help make your body more lean, increase your flexibility and better your posture and alignment, helping cut down on pesky back and joint pain.

This is 40 Yoga


45 minutes to an hour of weight training three to four days a week is a great way to keep your body toned and in shape.  Some parts of your body get harder to tone once your in your 40s.  Research specific training moves to target your arms, legs, abs and butt.

This is 40 Spinning


Not only is yoga great for your body, but many people also find that it helps relieve stress and anxiety.  Like Pilates, yoga can also help improve your posture and flexibility, in addition to strengthening your core.  Research studies have also found that yoga has a positive effect on learning and memory – so it doesn’t just benefit your body, but it helps your mind as well!


Spinning is an intense workout, so you might want to build up to it, but it’s an amazing way to burn calories and get in shape!  Spinning helps you burn fat, become leaner, can improve your cardiovascular health, and can help improve your posture.  Give spinning a try if you want to improve your overall health as it targets many different parts of your body.
