Make it a Bulletproof Day!

I have been drinking Bulletproof coffee! I add 1-2 scoops of  Bulletproof Protein Powder, 1 TBS Brain Octane, 1 TBS Ghee to my Bulletproof coffee that I make in a French Press. It is amazing. I have a cup early morning before I workout. I am not hungry until late morning! It is very grounding and helps with over eating and cravings!

Elaine Millner is my OutdoorFit Superstar! She is also a Bulletproof gal!!!   She embraced my 7 Day…Feel Fabulous Program.  She takes the pharmaceutical grade supplements that I recommend.  She is Fit and Fabulous!

Here is a short three minute video with OutdoorFit Elaine, 79!

We talk about being Bulletproof!

Our SHMEC is in check!

Training for an Ultra Marathon at 57!

This was such a fun interview with my friend Dorian Meyer.  We sat on  Dorian’s beautiful porch overlooking Sandy Hook and the NYC skyline.   I have been wanting to interview her because she has such amazing energy and spirit!  I’ve known Dorian for a long time through running. She was an exceptional runner in her “day”!

During the interview, we talk about fashion, running. and her latest challenge, ultra marathoning.  At the age of 57, Dorian is training for a 50 mile Ultra Marathon!

Dorian’s last race was the NYC marathon in 2004. She stopped racing because she needed to take care of her Mom and sister who both sadly had cancer. She describes how running saved her during that time. I had the same kind of experience when Thomas, my miracle kid was in the hospital for 13 months. I would get up, run and then drive to the hospital. It saved me too. You just put one foot in front of the other.

Enjoy the interview.
Go see Dorian for new sneakers at her beautiful blue store in Shrewsbury, NJ. Shore Footed.

The view from the porch!

 

Feeling Good in Your Body.

Feeling strong and healthy is a major goal for me.

I have had back issues all of my life. I had orthopedic shoes as a kid. I have worn orthotics since college. I wore puffy shoes!  I was a competitive runner so I placed a lot of stress and impact on my body over the years.

I have been researching and studying natural functional movement. I have incorporated Foundation Training by Dr. Eric Goodman into my daily routine . I have a new best friend Katy Bowman of Nutritious Movement. She talks about the importance of incorporating movement into your day. I have taken  their exercises to create strength and  mobility into my body. I  have been focused on my feet, hips and back. I am so excited at 62 because I no longer need my orthotics. The nagging back and pain is gone. If it starts to creep back in I know what to do about it.

Bonus Round… I am able to walk barefoot in my house pain free.

 Fit and Fabulous…Aging Optional.

Here is a short video where I demonstrate some of the exercises that I include while working at my kitchen sink.

 

I forgot to mention the half foam roller to stretch your calves.

Happy Healthy Calves

Of course, I take what I learn to the workouts. Click here  for the  OutdoorFit Schedule.

Have a great day! I am off to walk barefoot on the beach. So good for your feet and your sunny disposition!

Love,

Mary

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.

If you are local and want to workout with me. Here is my Spring Schedule!

 

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!

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.

From my friend and mentor Penny Northrup Kirk…”Hooray! And a big YES to FAT!” A tweetable:)
