Weight loss for 40's and beyond.

You may notice your jeans are tighter and the weight is not falling off like it did in our 20's.  The truth is your metabolism is slowing down and this cause us to yo-yo diet.  Around age 30 most people start to lose about half a pound of the metabolism-revving tissue each year.  At age 50, the rate doubles.  Yikes!! What is this telling us? Chances are that the average sedentary woman could lose close to 15 pounds of muscle by the time she is in her late 50's and this could cause her to gain close to the same amount of body fat.

Here are a few tips to help you get started on your journey to get fit at any age!

• Eat healthy, protein-rich foods to support calorie-burning muscle mass, and follow a moderate-calorie diet.
• Strength-train twice a week to fight muscle loss.
• Squeeze in quickie cardio workouts 3 times a week to hike all-day calorie burn.

Don't Skip Breakfast...

You may have heard this a lot and think oh no big deal it won't hurt me.  Au contraire, in reality skipping any meal will mess up your weight loss and even add to your weight gain.  Here is why breakfast is the meal you never want to leave home without. Skipping breakfast will lead to snacking until it’s time for your next meal and or eating more than if you would have just eaten breakfast.  I recently was visiting my good friend who is also a nutritionist, she showed me a very quick and easy way to cook an egg.  This is a fast way to cook, for those of us who say we have no time.  What I love about this is you can even do make it in your work microwave with no hassle.  Enjoy!
Easy as 1, 2, 3 1 small bowl EVO 1 egg 1 slice of bread – I use Ezekiel bread or Dave’s power seed thin sliced bread. 4-6 strawberries (depending on size)

Add 1 teaspoon EVO into a small bowl and swirl around as to grease the sides.  Add one egg.  Put in micro wave for 30 sec (don’t for get to cover) and D…

10 Reasons Women Should Lift Weights

Author Whitney Provost who writes for Beachbody really gives you some great reasons why women should lift weights.  I can relate to all of them.  My personal goal is to live a healthy life for me and my kids.  Keep reading and I hope this helps.





Many women believe that the only way to lose weight is to do cardiovascular (aerobic exercise). So they jog or take aerobics classes five times a week. Eventually, though, they notice that while their bodies are a little smaller, there are still a lot of flabby and jiggly bits. Sound familiar? Aerobic exercise is important for good health, but it’s only half of the equation. Keep reading for the other half. For optimal fitness, longevity, and a lean body, weight training is essential. If you avoid pumping iron because you’re afraid of getting “bulky,” then you’re missing out on one of the best fat-burning methods around. When you’re weight training, you shouldn’t rely exclusively on the scale to gauge your progress. You can use a body fat tes…

Stop Falling Off the Weight Loss Wagon 5 Tips to stay on track

Here are some great tips from Author Ester Kane on how to stay motivated and stick with your plan.

I’m sure many of you have experienced this at some point in your weight loss journey:

You’ve just found the magic solution to losing the extra weight and keeping it off forever…You figure out what to eat on the plan outlined, buy the groceries needed to adhere to it, and adopt the exercise regime it recommends. You follow the program strictly for two weeks, and guess what? You lose some weight, you feel better, and you like how your clothes fit. Success!

Then ___________ happens.

There was birthday cake at the office. Your partner left you. Your boss reprimanded you. You went out to lunch with your coworkers.

Before you know it, you’ve had a “snack-cident.” It crept up on you without your conscious knowledge and drove your head into a bag of potato chips.

After your snack-cident, then comes the wall of shame that sends you into a pit of despair and self-loathing. You ask yo…
