Feeling good is really important to your mental health. Getting older can be a scary road to navigate. There are lots of changes going on in your life, with your body, and you’re stuck with a choice. Give up on feeling good or work hard at feeling good. You can be fabulous at 50 and beyond.
Feeling good takes hard work initially. It means confronting your problems, and tackling them head on. It means not quitting on yourself. Our clients who feel and look great at 50 and beyond, work hard at it. They’ve chosen to do that. I see them every day in the studio, working hard in their sessions, committing to good food choices, working on themselves, inside and out. THey are fabulous at 50 and beyond.
The changes that are happening to your life and your body can be a shock, and many women find themselves feeling very low.
I want to give you some tips that will help you feel more capable to deal with life. Tips that will leave you feeling stronger, fitter, and healthier. Our clients looks amazing. 50 really is the new 30. I promise you you can look and feel great at any age, with hard work. and hard work can be fun! It’s so fulfilling having a project that’s based all on you.
All of our clients do interval training.
Interval training is amazing. It gives you the biggest endorphin release that I know of. It leaves you feeling amazing. On cloud 9. You feel capable, and strong. Your muscles feel tight. You feel so good. It’s hard to describe. You finish it thinking. OK, everything is going to be OK”.
Resistance training is amazing.
So many of our clients are scared of lifting weights at the start, but all lifting weights is, is lifting, pushing, pulling something a little heavy, to get you building lots of lean lovely muscle. When you build lean muscle, you burn more calories at rest. You get that lovely lean and toned look. You fit better in your clothes. You strengthen your muscles and and your bones. You get strong and you feel strong.
Avoiding late-night snacking and alcohol mid-week.
I know you know this, but it’s important. Too much alcohol wrecks you. You can’t think straight. You’re not yourself. You can’t trust your own thoughts because you don’t know if that’s the hangover/alcohol talking, or if that’s really you. You are not yourself when you’re drinking long term. It’s a real slippery slope this one, and I understand it a lot. If you can’t stop drinking mid-week, get help. Acknowledge that something isn’t right. If it’s easy for you to cut down, great, leave it for the weekends.
The same goes for late-night snacking.
You just undo all your hard work in a flash. It feels worth it or a moment, and then it’s not. Late-night snacking is so difficult to stop but it’s such a waste of your effort. Leave it for the weekends.
Drink two litres of water every day, eat 3 meals and 2 snacks. Get out in the fresh air and read this amazing book , Tony Robbins, Awaken the Giant Within. 10 pages before bed will get you though the book in no time.
Hope this helps,
