Being Fit Over 50

Yes you should be eating Ginger

Posted by in Happiness, Harmony, Health

You may or may not know it but for months I suffered from severe Vertigo. Yes after some eye surgery for some reason I woke up in the middle of the night spinning and sweating. Spinning from the Vertigo and sweating from the panic attack that was setting in. What the hell was going on I thought? My first thought was “oh no they made a mistake on my surgery” and I immediately called the surgeon who had done that eye surgery (since it literally happened 7 hours after the…read more

Put down the phone please

Posted by in Happiness, Harmony, Health, Love

Yes I am talking to you. But I am also talking to myself (as sad as that is, it is true). I became acutely aware of it a year ago or so at a family function. With my husband’s family it was more prevalent than ever. I am guessing because of the size of his family it made a bigger impact than usual. We had all sat down for dinner and of course there were numerous phones on the dinner table. Then after dinner I noticed instead of the kids…read more

Strength training at 40 and 50, or 60 for that matter!

Posted by in Fitness, Fun, Happiness, Harmony, Health, Motivation

So many people are under the misconception that you should not be strength training when you get older. That theory is absolutely ridiculous and I’m here to squash any of that so called thinking. In fact one of best examples out there is a women who didn’t even start training until well into her 50’s. She knows just as I do that age is just a number, and she is now in the best shape of her life. You are never too old to start getting stronger and healthier. I…read more

Should you train differently after turning 50?

Posted by in Fitness, Fun, Happiness, Harmony, Health, Motivation

Well one word, absolutely! It wasn’t easy for me, but I have learned to modify my training. People ask me this all the time and yes of course I train differently. It’s not that I don’t train as hard as I used to, but I just train differently. This isn’t my first blog about training and I’m sure it won’t be my last. One thing I do is stretch. When I was in my 30’s and 40’s I just didn’t take the time or know how to really stretch. After…read more

Why am I feeling this way?

Posted by in Happiness, Harmony, Health, Motivation

So I’m not really sure how to start this, other than what the hell is going on with me? And I say that to you as I am not a complainer and I hate wearing my heart on my sleeve (something I very rarely do). But for some reason in the last few months I am not feeling super motivated, or for that matter I am just bored. How can that be I ask myself? I am very very busy with jobs, training, cooking and simply living. But yet I…read more

Menopause – Will exercise help?

Posted by in Fitness, Happiness, Harmony, Health, Motivation

Well I’m not even sure if I know what I am talking about. I’m sure that really makes you want to read this blog too. Well I say that because I have been without my period for about 10 months now. So I guess I am going through menopause. I have heard all the horror stories about mood swings, depression, bed sweats or just sweats in general. And then of course the dreaded lack of sexual desire (sex being painful) and weight gain. So with all that said I am…read more

What do you really want out of life?

Posted by in Fun, Happiness, Harmony, Health, Love

Well after years of wanting to control things in my life, I have decided that the saying “we make plans and god laughs” is more than true. Back in my 30’s and even in my early 40’s I thought I knew what it was I wanted. Being a bit of a perfectionist I always wanted to have a clean organized nice home, well behaved children, a big lawn and flower bed I could retreat to. I had a career where I was in control and that could afford me a…read more

They Grow up fast – Make the most of it!

Posted by in Fun, Happiness, Harmony, Health, Love

Kids! If you have them you know what I am talking about. You remember the day they were born and then you turn around and all of a sudden they are starting school. Now you are watching them get their driver’s license. Where has the time gone? Now more than ever I want to write this blog. I feel this way and I never even had a cell phone when my kids were growing up. I cannot imagine how the time goes by with all the social media stuff out…read more

No Resolutions for 2014 – Just Solutions!

Posted by in Fitness, Happiness, Harmony, Health, Motivation

With 2014 upon us and everyone always making resolutions, I find myself asking the same question. Do I need a resolution? It seems most people fail when they make a resolution and then they feel bad and guilty that they did not fulfill the resolution. So for 2014 I am going for solutions. Solutions to the ailments I am having from being over 50. Solutions to the way I will treat people whether they are nice to me or not. Solutions to make my life richer (not in the materialistic…read more
