Aging Optional?

Did you see the video from yesterday about our 7 Day Program to feeling Fabulous?  LOOK at my face! Yikes!

It was a little concerning and hard to post. I am 62 and can do kick ass Burpees. I feel great and I have tons of energy. When I saw my face in the video yesterday, to be honest it set me back a bit.

I am in a great time of my life.  I created this blog a few years ago and I have people who don’t know me following me. I have women who are between 40 and 79 that get up on a Saturday morning, 23 degrees and windy to workout with me. I have people who join my nutritional program and give up grains, sugar and alcohol to feel better. I recommend the best supplements and they take them.

I have a wonderful supportive family.

I am very grateful for all of it. So what are a few wrinkles and aged spots? Embrace where you are in your life! I tell myself I am a natural beauty. I am going with that.

Do you drink enough water?

I posted in the 7 Days…Feel Fabulous Group about the importance of drinking water. It is such a simple thing to do. It is easy, just set the intention.

Note to self. Drink half your body weight in water. If you weigh 140 lbs you need to be drinking 70 oz of water daily. I know when I drink that amount I feel better.

Amy who is in the group posted that she drinks 6- 12 oz glasses a day. She puts 6 pennies in a pile and every time she drinks 12 oz she moves a penny and creates another pile. Great idea Amy! Look what I did today. Of course, a straw always adds to the Fun!

2 down...4 to go!

“Keeper of the Keys.”

(Thomas likes to eat from the top down.)

I am in charge of the food in my house. I shop, cook and serve the food. There is a lot of power in that. As you know, I have basically gone no gluten, no sugar and now one glass of wine.  My family is mostly gluten and sugar free.

This morning I made Thomas his shake along with smoked salmon, goat cheese, ghee on the rosemary blender bread. He ate the whole thing. I could give him a bowl of cereal and he would eat that too. The smoked salmon is a much better choice for him.  Thomas has had so many medical issues in his life. His health and well being is very important to me. He takes the best supplements on the planet as well.

Smoked salmon , goat cheese, grain free bread! Great way to start your day!

Sleep through the night!

I slept through the night last night. What a blessing!

Yesterday, I went out to lunch with my sisters, Mom and Dad. We are celebrating Mom’s birthday which is Saturday. We are having a dinner then. Yesterday was just a sneak preview. Coming off my 30 Days of no gluten, sugar, alcohol I have decided to be very mindful of what I am eating and drinking.

My family all had wine with lunch and dessert. I  had a wonderful time.  I had a club soda with lemon and lime and coffee with no dessert. It didn’t bother me at all. I didn’t feel like I was missing anything. It feels like a HUGE Break through!

Last night with dinner, I enjoyed my glass of wine. AND I slept through the night. I know keeping in Balance is Key!

Remember SHMEC, your medical markers?

Mindfulness is key.

This was my breakfast today. Grain Free Sugar Free Blender Bread with ghee. (recipe from Danielle Walker’s Celebration Book) Full Fat plain yogurt and apple sauteed in ghee. Along with Bulletproof coffee and the best supplements on the planet.

Martini Powered PJ and Julia!

Today was a proud day for me.

My Dad took my advise and  embraced the Fit and Fabulous Nutrition Program! My niece Julia has been on the program for over a month.  She talks about how her stomach has never felt better now that she is completely off gluten. She also loves how the program has actually helped her save money.  It makes me happy that they are doing so well and I appreciate their trust in me.

Here is their stories! A fun video to film today!

I Love Katie Horner’s (another fabulous niece) art work in the background!

Thanks Mom for being our photographer!

Low impact Burpee!

I have a new client and every time I say burpee she leaves for a walk around the building. This is fine with me. Elaine is easing into the workouts! By the way, she is 79! Fit and Fabulous…Aging Optional!

I have a low impact burpee that she can do. It is an alternative to the high impact burpee that we all Love! It is also great to use as a warm up to your workout.

Exercise is very important to your health.

Nutrition is even more critical. 80% nutrition and 20% exercise.  Being mindful of a balanced diet is key. Eat organic when possible, watch your portions, enjoy your meals, focus on proteins, healthy fats and vegetables.

Do you need a reset or perhaps a jump start?

I had a break through!

Yesterday on Day 22 of no gluten, sugar or alcohol I had a break through. I have been fighting the program just about the whole time. I don’t especially like rules even my own rules.

I have been agitated and stuffing myself. I am stuffing myself with good things, blueberries, red peppers, carrots… Whenever I go to cook I start eating. I decided yesterday to stop it. I feel so much calmer since then. I love to chew gum as well. It is the same kind of habit. Yesterday, I slowed down, sat down and ate my meal or snack. I enjoyed my meals so much more. Mindfulness.

I also spent 15 minutes sitting on my cushion in my bedroom. I say I am going to meditate on a daily basis but I don’t. It is so very helpful.

These past 22 days have not been super easy. You know what? I do feel so much better. Why do I fight it???My sleep, my  body , my energy is fabulous! I want to tell everyone. Do you suffer from aches and pains, insomnia, lack of energy? Get off the grains, sugar and alcohol and see how you feel. I am telling you it is so worth it!
