I have just figured out how to listen to podcasts on my phone and it has opened up a new world! I love listening to it in the car. I have been following the Bulletproof coffee guy Dave Asprey. His tagline is Power Mind and Body. Who doesn’t want that?
I have gone back to Bulletproof coffee. I add 1TBS of Ghee and 1TBS Bulletproof XCT oil to my morning cup of French Press organic coffee. I blend it up in the VitaMix. I really like it and it grounds me.
I am using the My Fitness app to track calories. I was concerned by the amount of fat I was adding back into my diet. I am working on changing my set point. I was stuck at 145- 146lbs for awhile. Now, I am down to 143 lbs. Slow, but at least it is moving. I know it is just a number but I feel empowered, fit and lighter when that number is down. Embrace the Healthy Fats!
I keep my daily calories around 1500. I save enough for a glass of wine with dinner because it makes me happy!
I have been slowly increasing my exercise. Here is a great HIIT workout that you can do in a few minutes.
I have started to run again. I do a lap around the fields at the end of the workout. I feel good. I am loving my New Balance Minimus Shoes! They make me happy every time I put them on! I am able to run without my orthotics which is thrilling!
The point of all of this, it is possible to get stronger and lighter as we age, without all of the aches and pains. Here is my friend Gail. She survived OutdoorFit this morning. It included the 3-5-7 HIIT, weight training and Foundation Training for strength, endurance and flexibility.
Gail at 60 something!
Did you workout this morning? Are you local? Are you feeling Fit and Fabulous? Come try OutdoorFit!
Summer Time. I have been working on lessening the load. I have spent the past two months decluttering, donating, and throwing out. (More donating than throwing out. )
I have been doing exercises to strengthen my feet, hips and back. As you know if you have been following my blog. I love Foundation Training by Dr. Eric Goodman and recently found Nutritious Movement by Katy Bowman. I am going slow. I did buy a new pair of sneakers from Dorian Meyer at Shore Footed NJ. New Balance Minimus which I love how light they are and so cute! This is a huge step for me. No more puffy shoes or orthotics. I am using my body to support itself. Very interesting at 62. It is so important not to limit your self.
Run Faster Jump Higher:)
After OutdoorFit today, I decided to try running in the Minimus.. I was a competitive runner and I miss it. I know I will not be running 5 miles in 30 minutes. The competitive fast running was the past. I am working on running a few miles in the woods. Today, I ran 1/4 mile on the grass at the fields. Intermediately afterwards, I did Foundation Training. The amazing exercises to put you back in place. So far so good!
I have also lighten up with my food. More vegetables, more vegetables, more vegetables. I have cut back on my fruit. I was eating more fruit and I was starting to crave sugar again. Interesting. Everyone is different. It is important to pay attention to your body. I am also vegetarian most days until dinner. I am embracing the egg. I am drinking more tea and less coffee. Baby Steps.
I am keeping my SHMEC in checked.
SHMEC…Sleep, Hunger, Mood, Energy, Cravings How is your SHMEC?
I have been spending time in my garden. Weeding -Weeding-Weeding. Gardening is also tough on my body. Here is a quick video of my Post Garden Founder. So Helpful! Give it a try.
I am not a summer person. To be honest, it makes me a bit nervous. I have a sense of guilt about having FUN. I live 5 miles from the ocean and rarely get there. I would rather stay home and weed on some level. I am working on changing.
I am inspired by Casey Neistat? Do you follow him? (I am old enough to be his Mother. I think I have seen everyone of his videos. I love his enthusiasm and love of life.)
I have cut back on fruit the past couple of years because of the sugar content. No longer! The key in all of this is to enjoy moderation.
I was on Instagram and came across Anthony William the Medical Medium’s post about grapes. Amazing how good there are for you! “Grapes have been called the “queen of fruits” due to being one of the most nutritious and medicinal foods available since ancient times.”
This morning I made a Mango Smoothie.
According to The Medical Medium, ‘Mangos are one of the most popular and nutritionally rich fruits in the world and are often referred to as “The King of the Fruits”. Mangos are an amazing source of vitamins A, C, E, and B-complex as well as health promoting flavonoids such as beta-carotene and alpha-carotene. Mangos are a powerful anti-cancer food and are specifically known to help prevent lung, breast, colon, prostate, blood, and oral cancers. ”

“In order to live an extraordinary life, you need Extraordinary Healthy!!! ” Kate Northrup
I was on a Facebook Live business training last Saturday when Kate said the above quote. It really stuck with me. I came down with the flu which lingered on for two weeks. I haven’t been sick like that for years. I take really good care of myself. Many people around me have had high fevers. I didn’t have that. It pays to take eat well, take your supplements, exercise and sleep!
You really appreciate having good health when you are sick.
I am back! How is your health?
Would you like to have more energy? Are you tired of feeling bloated and achy? Suffering from Hot flashes? Are you craving sugar, salty carbs or caffeine in the afternoon?

First off it is always about HAIR!. 2 years ago I decided to stop highlighting my hair and go grey. I blogged about it. I joined a silver hair group. I interview others about going grey. My hair is dark with out much grey. Yesterday, I decided that I needed a little sunshine on my head and had my hair highlighted. I will need to resign from my silver hair group.
On to Amy Feeling Fabulous. Amy joined our 7 Days…Feel Fabulous Program. She was our A student. It began as A+ but she had a run in with a Justin’s Chocolate peanut butter treat and caved. Only, for the moment. She was back at it the next day!
She said that SHMEC is a great gift. She checks in daily to see if something is off. What did she do the day before?
Meet Amy Grossman…
Our next group is starting March 27th! How is your SHMEC? Is it time to Feel Fabulous? Do you have 7 days?
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.
Would you like to join our 7 Day Program… FEEL FABULOUS?
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!
I have put together a 7 days…Feel Fabulous program with Holistic Chef Ivone. We have lots of great tips and recipes to share. We are creating a wonderful supportive community. Wouldn’t you like tons of energy and to be feeling fabulous? It is not too late to join us. Click here for more info.
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!
