Transformation happens from the OUTSIDE

I’m sure you’ve heard the common phrase: “Transformation happens from the inside out” but I’m here to call bullcrap on that!

It’s bullcrap because who in the heck has the desire or the confidence to work on their inside when they feel terrible on the outside?!?! 

Unfortunately all those male “experts” out there who are telling us to work on our insides, have never dealt with menopause or bat wings!!! I actually had a client tell me that when she complained about her bloated belly, her male doctor told her that unfortunately that’s just a part of menopause.

That’s funny. I’ve had a bit of a pot belly my whole life (pre-menopause) yet my stomach got the flattest it’s ever been at age 55 after intensifying my exercise routine and improving my nutrition. And it wasn’t until I began to see results in the process of that transformation that I even considered the inside needed a transformation too!

The Menopause Myth

Thinking menopause is the main reason for the sad shape you are in is one of the worst midlife mindsets you can have. I know this because I used to have that mindset! 

So many women think that way because when we are struggling with weight gain or lack of energy, we need an excuse. And that mindset is compounded when we get around like-minded peers who buy into this belief, which further validates to us that menopause is the culprit!!!

But will an excuse get you to a better mindset and ultimately the solution you need? Not at all! 

Whether your excuse is time, money, OR menopause, none of them will help you get into those old size 8 jeans folded at the bottom of your drawer or give you the energy you need to go on all of the fun rides with your grandchildren at Disney World. 

Is every menopausal woman out of shape and overweight? Heck no!!! I can name several who look amazing: Jane Fonda at 80, Sandra Bullock at 54, Christie Brinkley at 64, Diane Keaton at 72, and Kim...

Why Justify Made Me Cry

I know some people may not understand why I am in tears seeing Justify win the Triple Crown....

Do you have any idea how AMAZING that is?!?! TWICE IN 40 years! 

I am an animal lover. I am especially a horse lover. I used to own one. I used to ride every day. I loved riding. It was such a passion of mine. 

I've been thinking about starting again. It's been in my mind since last summer when I took my granddaughter to her first riding lesson. 

I think it's time. No more just thinking! I'm going to call tomorrow and get started. 

If it makes you cry, DO IT, right? 
Thank you Justify, for reigniting a long idle passion.

Anyone Who Has Chronic Pain Needs to Read This Book...

aging educational health Feb 01, 2018

Anyone who has chronic pain needs to read this book... And I'm only on page 1!!!

"Pain and other chronic symptoms are physical manifestations of unresolved internal conflict. Symptoms surface as an instinctual mechanism for self survival.

They are messages from the inner self wanting to be heard, but ego takes center stage in heights the truth within the shadows of the unconscious mind: which is the body. One purpose of these physical symptoms is to keep the individual focused on his physical body, and away from the surfacing emotions.

This is referred to as Tension Myoneural syndrome, TMS, which includes acute and chronic nerve pain as well as muscular pain and a wide variety of other symptoms.

T = Tension, the result of anger buried in the body
M = Myoneural, muscles and nerves 
S = Syndrome, a collection of symptoms

TMS is the cause of the current pandemic of back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, migraine, hip pain, knee pain, wrist and hand pain, carpal tunnel pain, mouth...

My Whole Life I Was Always the Youngest

My whole life I was always the youngest...

I was the younger sister.
I started Kindergarten at 4 years old.
I graduated high school at 17.
I was the youngest of my roommates in college.

Now it seems like I'm always the oldest! 
(except when I'm around my husband's friends! LOL!!!!)

But I never FEEL like I'm older!!! I always feel like I fit right in.

Maybe it's my mindset. Maybe it's because I work out and feel so strong & healthy. Maybe it's because I'm around people who accept me because we think so much alike

Whatever it is, I like it and I want to keep on feeling this way!!!

Please Pass this Info Along! You May Save a Life!

aging health life advice Nov 22, 2017

Please pass this message along!!! You may save a life!

These are my college bestie’s before and after pics! Not the typical before/afters I share.

She is DAMN LUCKY!!!!

She noticed a spot on her arm. Doesn’t look like much, does it? Certainly not anything bad. She didn’t think it was anything but a nuisance to look at.

The ONLY reason she went to the Dermatologist was because her daughter was getting married and she wanted it removed or frozen off. She told me it was only for vanity reasons.

Unfortunately it turned out to be an aggressive type of melanoma!
But the good news is: they got it all!!! 

If not for her daughter’s wedding, she may have waited too long and had a much different prognosis.

I went to the Dermatologist yesterday. I go once a year but I also go whenever I see something suspicious. I had 3 spots frozen.

Did you know melanoma can be on ANY part of your body, even your scalp - which is impossible to see on your own!

This shit is nothing...

The Younger the Better

This passage in the book I'm reading right now stopped me in my tracks when I read it... It was so impactful that I shared it at our recent coach retreat. And it caused a few tears to be shed.

Please read it and share it on your timeline. It is a message that needs to be heard by everyone, no matter their age - in fact, the younger, the better!

"You may think you're protecting yourself from judgment, rejection, or upsetting someone, but when you make excuses and talk yourself into waiting, you are limiting your ability to make your dreams come true. 

I'm amazed by how much time I've wasted in my life waiting for the right time, waiting until I'm sure, waiting until I think my work is perfect, or waiting until I feel like it.

You may be afraid of finding out that you suck. Let me tell you what really sucks:

 Being older and regretting that you never went for it.
 Being 56 and realizing you should have divorced your spouse ten years ago.
 Being 45 and wishing you had...

It's Amazing How Busy Life is With Little Ones Around You

I have a new appreciation for all you moms & grandmas who manage to get in your at-home workouts with kids at home!!!

These 2 critters just left to head back home this morning...  The house is strangely quiet, and I will miss them like crazy but it's time to get back into my regular routine.

It's amazing how busy life is when little ones are around and how little you seem to get done! But I wouldn't trade my time with them for the world!!! <3 <3 <3

Truth is that I went totally off the rails with my eating and exercise over the past couple of weeks so I am actually looking forward to digging in and being super ON POINT over the next 3 weeks with the ladies in my online fitness accountability group.

I've eaten out way too much, included too much alcohol in my meal plan (vacations & wedding oh my!), and either skipped my workouts or chose the easiest ones to do.

Now it's time to get serious, commit to ONE 21 DAY PROGRAM, stick to the prescribed...
