What supplements do you take?

I have been getting asked about the supplements that I take. FIRST, let me tell you why I take them. Dr. Christiane Northrup told me too! These are the supplements that she list in all of her books. Her latest book Goddesses Never Age, they are included in something you do everyday. If you want to be a person that gets older but doesn’t age I suggest you get on her regimen. She has an amazing 14 day Goddesses Never Age Program to get you started.

I did not need to do any research nor do I have the background to research them. I certainly know that Dr. Northrup knows her stuff.  If they are good enough for her, they are good enough for me.

Some of my clients say they are too expensive. Would you rather spend half the price and receive very little nutritional support? Or invest in your health and make it a priority? I decided that there is nothing more important than your health. I could go off and write about my son Thomas who spent the first 13 months of his life in the hospital and came home on a ventilator. One sentence explains enough. Health is a priority for me and my family.

So I created my own AM and PM health pack. So convenient.

As I am writing this, I think wow, that seems over the top. You know, it is very doable, takes 10 seconds to take your vitamins. I feel great for the most part, I get up early and workout hard three times a week, moved 5 yards of mulch this weekend, and I plan on getting better.

Do you need to contact me? I also love hearing from you.

Outdoors…

Do you get outside everyday? I do. I have George the dog who needs to be walked everyday twice a day. He loves weather, rain, wind, snow, sun. He is not crazy about thunderstorms.

Lately, I go out and work in my gardens. I try to limit it to 20 minutes a day . Just that makes you feel better, even if all I am doing is pulling dandelions or picking up dog poop. It just makes you feel good.

Grandpa Sam’s wheelbarrow

I wanted to honor Grandpa Sam’s wheelbarrow in my blog post. I have used it for years and so did he. It makes me happy to look at it. I did buy a big 6 cubic feet with a big fat tire which makes me happy too:)

Fit and Fabulous tip…Go outside everyday if only for a few minutes. It will make you feel better. “My body was designed to move and stretch and feel strong, flexible and alive. I love the feeling.” Dr. Christiane Northrup from her book Goddesses Never Age.

My Fit and Fabulous workouts are outside all year long. Come try a class. Hula hoops, Jump ropes and so much more. I can modify for any fitness level.

That is it for now. Go outside, take a walk, pick a dandelion, plant lettuce or just sit in the sunshine. Your choice.

Love,

Mary

Goddesses Never Age, book celebration in NYC!

I was an invited guest to Dr. Christiane Northrup’s book celebration, Goddesses Never Age in NYC last week. It was so thrilling to be part of such an amazing night.

I got into my Subaru with three of my friends and drove into the city which is always an adventure. We made it, parked in a garage and walked over to ABC HOME & CARPET which is a beautiful space.  We enjoyed lovely snacks, vegetables and dip and sparkling water or wine served in beautiful glasses. Painting the picture for you and snacks are important.

How do I describe this? I love the confidence of Dr. Northrup, you immediately feel it when she walks on the stage. I want to be more like that. Exudes confidence. Skip the heels for me:) I know Dr. Northrup takes great care of herself and she inspires me to take better care of myself. She had acupuncture the afternoon of the event. You can see by the photo she looked amazing. Eve Ensler is also a very confident woman and the best part she had on black sneakers. Of course, I resonated with that… there is a woman who knows herself!

I was going to break down the evening for you but here is a wonderful article by Miriam Ava, Colors of Gratitude and the Huffington Post. Worth the read. “Consider tonight a mass vaccination.”

 

 

Are you ready to release your winter fat?

My intention for 2015 was to empower as many people as possible to become Fat Burners…Fit and Fabulous.

I gain a few pounds this winter, was eating more carbohydrates mostly gluten free but still extra carbs. It was a cold winter here in the northeast. It is time to lighten up.

Yesterday, I blogged about Menopausal Belly, it was a high traffic day. I know it is an issue. What has happened? Why am I thicker around the middle? I am going grain free for two weeks to see how I feel.

For some, that is too extreme so why not start with the 5 day Reset program. It will take you from being a sluggish sugar burner to a vibrant healthy fat burner.  I have coached many through the 5 day Reset and beyond. THE PROGRAM WORKS!

If you are in Fat burning mode:

Sleep soundly through the night with no night sweats. (Menopausal women as well, decreased night sweats!)

Hunger will be at a minimum. You will have a feeling of emptiness not irritability, urgency, low blood sugar or a feeling of fogginess. You will be in a balanced state.

Mood will be stable. You will feel in control with more self confidence.

Energy will be consistent and abundant . You will develop a feeling of Lightness.

Cravings will be almost non-existent. You will be amazed that you can pass up on snacks that would have taken you down in the past.

Bonus Round…You will be losing Fat including that stubborn fat around the middle.

The BIG QUESTION! How do I become a FAT BURNER?

Start with the 5 day RESET. It takes 5 days to change from a sugar burner to a fat burner! You can totally change your life in 5 days. I will  support you along the way. We also have a wonderful facebook community where we post and create a Fit and Fabulous Lifestyle together. You are not alone. Do you want to be healthy and fit?  Hang with healthy and fit people! Bonus Round…Most people lose 4-5 pounds in five days and  your sugar cravings are eliminated! What a great way to jump start the Spring!

Yes, there is a chocolate shake in the box!

From one of my Fit and Fabulous gals! “I finished my 5 days on Reset yesterday. I thought it was going to be so much more difficult then it was and in fact it wasn’t difficult at all. My craving for sugar has subsided and I have never felt so good and proud of the 5 day accomplishment I have endured. Thank you Mary Kiningham for the guidance and the guidance as well as suggestions to keep going down this path of Swedish Fish free way of living”

Dr. Christiane Northrup describes the experience this way:

“I encourage you to eat in ways that will promote long-term health benefits. If you start eating healthier today, it’s likely you’ll be rewarded with weight-loss in five to ten days. After that, all you have to do is modify your lifestyle to maintain steady blood sugar. Here’s the best part: You can lose fat effectively while feeling great in the process. Keep your blood sugar stable and you’ll experience more energy; ability to sustain exercise; clearing of brain fog; ability to build muscle; less hunger—ability to control portion sizes and cravings; fewer PMS symptoms; better looking skin; deeper, more restful sleep; stable moods and more optimism; and clear eyes without puffiness or dark circles.”*

Who doesn’t want that???

Are you ready to order? Do you need more info?

Menopausal Belly???

“If you heard of menopausal belly, or wondered why it’s so commonplace to misplace your cell phone and keys when you hit midlife, let go of the idea that the problem is your hormones or “early old-timer’s disease.” Don’t think that way or talk that way. It isn’t your hormones, or early dementia, or a natural part of midlife that’s got your belly sticking out and your brain muddled. It’s what you are eating. The culprit is probably grains.” Dr. Christiane Northrup, Goddesses Never Age

So what do you think about that? My belly is certainly bigger, even though I work out and eat well most of the time.

I think it is super important to keep your blood sugar stable, get off the sugar and grains. I have reduced both but over the winter but the grains have started creeping back in.

I am going grain free for two weeks and see how I feel. I will probably continue past that but as you know, I don’t want  to be overly strict. It doesn’t work well for me. Actually, it makes me crazy,” no elimination diet” for me.

Yesterday, Easter Sunday was a FUN sugar day. Sunday, is a “day off” and it is beginning to feel like I don’t really want it but I do it anyway. Tom and I have an ice cream sundae every Sunday. I will stop that for two weeks as well.

If grain free feels to extreme to you. It is a great time for the gluten free 5 day Reset program to get you back on track. It will change you from a sluggish sugar burner to a vibrant energetic fat burner!

So important to take a high quality supplements. I have the inside scoop on amazing Ageless Goddess’ supplement pac. On your way to fabulous, vibrant and healthy! I can customize a energizing pac for you here. #fitandfabulous #agelessgoddesses

Let me know if you are interested in going grain free. Always great to do it with a group. I sent a text to Ivone and Karin last night and they are in as well. Keeps us all committed!

That is it for now, let me know what you think.

Love,

Mary

Breakfast!

Breakfast!

Bring out the Jump Ropes!

Are you concerned about impact? I love a little impact.

A year ago, I injured my low back, debilitating pain in my left glute, tingling around my knee. I went to my chiropractor and he said to me, how old are you? He wanted me to stop the impact, talk a walk, swim,  AND no impact.  I rested, took a few pain killers, went to physical therapy and I am back to working out.

I did change things up. I have created an effective workout that you do in a minimal amount of time.  I focus on recovery. I foam roll everyday sometimes twice a day, get really good massages, epsom salt baths, etc. After every workout, I include the Foundation training, the work of Dr. Eric Goodman.

I also eat a low-glycemic, low -inflammatory diet. I take really great supplements.  I especially like glucosamine with turmeric.

Today’s workout is a FUN one of course. When was the last time you jumped rope?

Here is the link to the Foundation Training that I do after every workout. You will finished feeling LONG and LEAN…an inch taller:) Go slow with it, build up, you don’t need to do the whole workout all at once. It is not easy but very effective. Strengthens and Stretches!
