The struggle is real!

Anyone struggle with Hormones and Thyroid issues?? #thestruggleisreal
Age 51 was when I started not feeling like myself.   My Dr. Just kept treating my symptoms and not listening to me. I finally had enough of that and found a awesome nurse practitioner who specialized in hormones & thyroid. I knew I wasn’t losing my mind and just gaining weight out of nowhere . I was still eating low carbs and it seemed like a mystery. This practitioner tested me for everything under the sun!  Come to find out low thyroid and non-functional adrenal glands were the culprit. I started on medication for my thyroid and she put me on awesome supplements to help my adrenals.

Now six months later the weight is coming off but that’s along with doing low carbohydrates lots of vegetables, and getting proper sleep. Those are the most important things to do when you have thyroid issues. it’s also important to do weight lifting.
For woman over 50 your body really starts to change and cardio does not do what it did when you were in your 20s and 30s and even when you were in your 40s. Weightlifting however builds muscle and burns fat. So although it’s important to do some cardio for good heart health you also raise your heart rate when you are weight lifting. amazingly enough send March 27th I have lost 26 pounds. I have more energy than I used to but come to find out just from recent blood work my thyroid is still slightly low. So again we’ve adjusted my medication adjusted some supplements and I’m sure I’ll feel even better than I do now a month from now.

Also many of the supplements that I am taking ate for good gut health. ***Always remember your best health advocate. Never settle for a doctor that is not listening. Shop around there’s lots of great doctors out there!!

Fresh Starts in the New Year

Fresh starts are great and with 2015 here  it’s time to think about what you want for the coming year.

Did you know!!  Jan, 2019, millions  will arise ready to go and be so excited about there goal of getting fit.   Sad but true by the end of January, a whopping 95% of those people will  have failed at those New Year’s resolutions for one reason or another.  We are not going to let you be one of those 95% not this year!!  THIS IS YOUR YEAR!!!!!!

if it’s 10, 30, 60 pounds or even more you want to take off how are you going to do it??
Here are some simple tips to get you started in the right direction.

1. Write it down!! Write it down!!  I can’t stress this enough!!

Map out how you are going to reach your goal. Set goals you can reach. I really do believe if your goals are not written down they are just dreams. When you write them down and put them somewhere you can see them it will set off events that will change your life.

2. Join a support group.

Weight does not just come off. You have to work hard and will need to be accountable. Join a support group where others are striving to reach weight loss goals. Take off pounds sensibly has worked for me. I also have many friends that have been to Overeaters Anonymous. You can find help in face to face meetings or on-line.

3. MAKE A VISION BOARD!

You need to have a clear vision of your goals!  You can feel free to let your imagination wonder as you create your future on this board.  This will help you create what you want from the inside and you can see it daily.

You will need a poster board. You can add sayings and pictures cut out from magazines. Healthy foods, Pictures of people near your ideal weight or even a picture of yourself at your ideal weight. Don’t hold back. You can put pictures that represent you and your dreams. Envision yourself and your new life and make this vision board all about your future.
Now place your board you will see it every day. If you look at it daily it will leave a imprint in your subconscious mind and you will make your board into reality.

4. IT’S BACK TO TO THE BASICS WITH EATING. EATING HEALTHY AND OFTEN IS THE KEY.

During the holidays it is easy to get out of the habit of eating right. Get rid of the junk food.   6 small meals a day!!  Click here to see a sample of what I eat and how I lost the 100 pounds!

5.  Get involved in a weight loss challenge!!

Taking on a new year challenge can help you kick start your goals. Weight Loss Wars is a good one. I have a few friends that did this last year and had great results.

6. You will need to exercise.

Get a workout DVD. There are so many good ones your selection is endless.  If you live locally and you love group fitness give  Elevate Studio a try!!   Great prices and you will love gaining support from other members. It’s nice for accountability. If your gone you may just get a call from a co- fitness partner and that is a great way for others to show they care.

Most important thing to remember is consistency is everything. Working out as often as possible will bring great results.

7.  Most of all believe in yourself.

You can do anything you set your mind to if you believe in yourself.  Join me on Facebook to get motivated and stay motivated and to share what is working for you!  We are in this together!!  Click here “Get up and Get Moving” on Facebook
