I have been receiving emails about middle aged belly fat. Is it possible to lose weight and shrink the menopausal belly?

Here is a short video that describes my day. Some tips that you just might find helpful.

Any questions or comments? Please contact me. I would love to hear from you.

If you are interested in purchasing the products that I talked about. Please go to my website.

Here is the link for Dr. Northrup’s Amata. (Full disclosure: I don’t sell AMATA. The video just happened to set up that way. so, I figured I would go with it.)

A Very Powerful Movement.

Oh, my aching back!

A Very Powerful Movement.

A Very Powerful Movement.

Do you have reoccurring back issues? Have you bent over to pick up something and your back was in excruciating pain? I have!

Over the years, I have seen Doctors, Chiropractors,physical therapists, massage therapist and acupuncturists. I would go swimming. I would do yoga. I would take powerful muscle relaxants. Ice, heat…I did it all. I still would have reoccurring back problems.

Two years ago, I discovered Foundation Training which is the work of Dr. Eric Goodman. I integrate Foundation Training into everyone of one my workouts. My back is stronger and I am more flexible! I am not in pain. When I do too much and I feel the tightness creeping back, I spend ten minutes doing Foundation Training. SO much better… It works!

From one of my workout ladies,”I moved 8 yards of mulch yesterday and my back did not hurt. Your workouts are working!”

I would love for all of you to come to my workouts. I promise you , your back will become stronger and perhaps pain free.

Here is the link to a Foundation Training workout if you can’t make it to Fair Haven Fields with me.

 FIT AND FABULOUS…AGING OPTIONAL!

IT IS POSSIBLE FOR YOU TOO!

Sustainable Fitness and Weight Management.

I feel a shift. It is all coming together. In the flow… 2 months ago I decided to increase the fat in my diet. I put coconut oil in my coffee and avocados in my morning smoothie. I have decreased the waffles, bread and pasta in my life. AND THE BLESSING ? It has been easy.

The Benefits?  I feel good, I am sleeping better, NEWS FLASH… sometimes through the night! I have lost a few pounds. The bloat is gone and my menopausal belly is shrinking.  BONUS ROUND. I am off my bio-identical hormones! Friends are starting to tell me that I LOOK GREAT!

I am not telling you all of this to brag. I am telling you this because it is possible for you too!

More info? Here is a video that I created for Team Northrup and the MY JUMP START program. (The 7 day JUMPSTART Kit is coming out soon.)

I will keep you posted. Are you looking for an excellent protein base now? 0 grams of sugar. I have been using the soy base this week. I know it is non-gmo and Pure! It is good to switch things up.

 

HIIT

JUMP AROUND SQUATS!

 

Jump around squats! Now, there is a good time! Here is a fabulous HIIT workout!

2o minutes and your are done! Make sure and warm up ahead of time. I took George the dog for a walk. I always like to finish my workouts with Eric Goodman’s Foundation Training.

Are you interested in trying the 0 grams of sugar protein shake?  I have been making Thomas the plant based with the chocolate flavor packet. I throw in a banana for sweetness. Delicious and Nutritious!

Set your self up right in the morning…   start your day off with a delicious protein shake, coconut oil in your coffee, take super high quality supplements and do your HIIT!

Enjoy the day!

8 minute HIIT

Here is an eight minute HIIT (high intensity interval workout for you). I watch these workouts online , mostly demonstrated by ripped young men. I think it is important for you to know that you can do this as well.  It might not be as pretty at 60 something but I get it down and reap the benefits. I hope I inspire you to give it a try. (I messed up the squat jumps the first time around, just move for those 30 seconds, try jumping jacks:)

If you need help modifying please leave me a comment below.

I will give you some great bullet points from Dr. Hyman’s book.

  • EATING FAT REVERSES TYPE 2 DIABETES (and improves blood sugar control for Type 1)
  • EATING FAT PREVENTS BRAIN AGING AND DEMENTIA
  • EATING FAT HELPS WITH SEIZURES, DEPRESSION,ADD, AUTISM, TRAUMA AND MORE
  • EATING FAT REDUCES INFLAMMATION AND AUTOIMMUNE DISEASE
  • EATING FAT BOOSTS YOUR SPORTS PERFORMANCE

  • FAT AND CANCER: SHOULD WE BE WORRIED?

 

I have increased my fat quite a bit in the last ten days. It is important to eat high quality healthy fats. For example, I am having coconut oil in my coffee every morning and eating an avocado daily. I feel grounded, less bloated, less hungry and it has been easier not to overeat.

I am very interested in all of this. I am putting together a 28 day test group to see what the effects are. My intention is to lose a few pounds, reduce the menopausal belly and feel absolutely fabulous! Would you like to join me?

Butter in my coffee:)

I am trying something new. Have you heard of intermittent fasting? How about putting butter in your coffee?

I am getting up at 6 am and making an organic cup of french roast coffee in my french press pot and adding a TBS of my delicious ghee. I made ghee from the unsalted Kerry Gold Irish butter the last time. SO CREAMY AND DELICIOUS! I enjoy the coffee and walk George the dog a mile. I am getting some exercise without eating.

Coffee with ghee!

After taking Thomas to his program at 9 am, I come home and have breakfast. I haven’t eaten for 14 hours. It is a completely different thought process of having breakfast first thing in the morning. I know many wait until later but for now I am hungry at 9 and I feel like I better eat something!

This was my breakfast this morning. An organic granny smith apple, organic cottage cheese , almond butter and sprinkled with cinnamon.

Grain Free and delicious!

Grain Free and delicious!

A three minute video. What do you think? Have you tried this? It is a process.
