We’re Not Dead! We’ve Just Moved

Hello,

I am here to inform you of some very sad, yet very exciting and important news.

As you have probably noticed, if you were a regular reader of Fit Over 40, there haven’t been many posts in a number of months. A series of changes have taken place…no I didn’t grow any new hair (I WISH!!!) This has caused us to focus on expanding our capabilities.

After almost two years of blogging, we have just simply outgrown our old site.  So we stepped away from the keyboard, packed our stuff and successfully decided to make a move.

No worries, it’s the same blog — just new and improved. The new location offers much more room for expansion  as we continue to grow. The only things that have changed are our new name and our new address. 

Please bookmark our new address at:

obama8barack-obama-change-postersOk, its two days after our new president took the oath of office to be our supreme commander.

I was probably like most of you this past Tuesday…I was glued to my television for the entire day!

The inauguration was amazing and it made me be proud to be an American.

The adoration of our 44th president is something to be impressed with.   Everyone seems to want to give him a chance to “rescue” us from our problems.

Let me clear some things up though. (more…)

Living in America is great!

Land of the free…home of the brave…and seriously stupid!

I’ve taken a little time off lately to catch up on life and I came across this story that was almost beyond belief.

There’s this place out in Arizona called the “Heart Attack Grill” that blatanly advertises that their food is not good for you.

I have to give them credit for not pretending to create a menu that looks healthy but, everyone knows isn’t…like your favorite fast food joint.

No, this place is for those who really want to have it their way!

If it wasn’t so sad, it could be considered to be funny.

Watch this video and see for yourself.

Likely reason #6 why you aren’t losing weight quickly

When it comes to losing weight, everyone seems to have an answer to solve that problem, but they never seem to be asking the right kind of question. Why is my weight loss not happening? What am I doing wrong? I’m putting in the effort and I’m not seeing the results.  Why am I failing?

There’s no need to panic.  Information is all over the place.  In fact, infomercials, weight loss clinics, and health food stores are right at your disposal serving you the latest pills, juices, devices, or any combination of them all.  Each and every one of them promises “quick” weight loss. Unfortunately, each and every one of them is stealing money from your wallet.

REALITY CHECK: Losing weight quickly is absolutely, positively, 100 percent guaranteed to cause your body to gain weight.  You will not find an answer in any “magic” pill, potion, or juice.  So, STOP LOOKING!

The diet and weight loss industry is a multimillion dollar business. The problem is that they are making all the money and you are keeping all the weight.  It’s all based on fear, misinformation and guilt.

Every Tuesday for the last six weeks, I’ve offered you a new tip on how to combat the battle of the bulge in a smart and safe manner. If you are looking for quick weight loss secrets, this isn’t the place for you. But, if you’re trying to find a way to reduce your body weight using sound advice for long term fat reduction, read on.

 

Likely reason #6: I’m too old to begin an exercise program If you still need motivation to get started after reading these posts for the past six weeks, they you better go back and read them again.

Age is just a number.  If you are able to walk, you are able to exercise. Taking small steps and let your desire be the starting point for all of your future achievements.  I’ve worked with clients for all age groups and they all had to start somewhere. Don’t let the “tomorrow’s” be your excuse for not starting today.

“The difference between successful people and those who are not, is the resilience and ability to keep trying and overcome obstacles by applying the knowledge they’ve learned.”

Well, this wraps up this six post series.  I hope it has helped you set in motion your weight loss plans

feet on scaleLikely reason #5 why you aren’t losing weight quickly

When it comes to losing weight, everyone seems to have an answer to solve that problem, but they never seem to be asking the right kind of question. Why is my weight loss not happening? What am I doing wrong? I’m putting in the effort and I’m not seeing the results.  Why am I failing?

The diet and weight loss industry is a multimillion dollar business. The problem is that they are making all the money and you are keeping all the weight.  It’s all based on fear, misinformation and guilt.

Every Tuesday for the next two weeks, I’ll offer you a new tip on how to combat the battle of the bulge in a smart and safe manner. If you are looking for quick weight loss secrets, this isn’t the place for you. But, if you’re trying to find a way to reduce your body weight using sound advice for long term fat reduction, read on.

Likely reason #5: You are relying on “scale weight” as a true indicator of weight loss success. Most people put too much emphasis on what that little number staring back at us between our toes really means.  All it is telling us is that our body weighs a certain amount against gravity. Nothing more…nothing less.

It cannot distinguish between body fat and lean body mass. It can’t tell you if you lost fat the last time you went on your diet and gained it back again on the current diet. It has no way of letting you know the truth. What’s worse, you could be losing fat and gaining muscle and it will still have the same number. And in your mind you will think you are improving.

A true indicator of progress will be by noticing the way your clothing fits, by the way you look in a mirror and how your body feels each and every morning. Do yourself a favor and throw away that scale!

pinch an inchLikely reason #4 why you aren’t losing weight quickly

When it comes to losing weight, everyone seems to have an answer to solve that problem, but they never seem to be asking the right kind of question. Why is my weight loss not happening? What am I doing wrong? I’m putting in the effort and I’m not seeing the results.  Why am I failing?

The diet and weight loss industry is a multimillion dollar business. The problem is that they are making all the money and you are keeping all the weight.  It’s all based on fear, misinformation and guilt.

Every Tuesday for the next three weeks, I’ll offer you a new tip on how to combat the battle of the bulge in a smart and safe manner. If you are looking for quick weight loss secrets, this isn’t the place for you. But, if you’re trying to find a way to reduce your body weight using sound advice for long term fat reduction, read on.

Likely reason #4: You are blaming everything on your genetics. You can point your finger at your parents for a lot of things, but let’s face it; you can’t put the blame on them for you having a slow metabolism.

Everyone can lose fat.  It will just take a little longer and require a little more effort for some than for others. It’s definitely not fair that more than a few people have inherited a metabolism and body type that favors fat storage. But by working a little harder than other people, being more persistent than other people and training more intensely than other people, you too could have a body of your dreams.

It’s amazing what a body can look like if a proper plan of action is put into place. Take responsibility for your actions and set realistic goals with deadlines.

Are you a \“If I’d know I was going to live this long, I would have taken better care of myself.”

Did you ever wonder why some people have that ideal figure – the trim and taught body, the chiseled chest, the ‘buns of steel”, the tree trunk thighs, the rock hard abs? And then there are others who seem to be overflowing way beyond the top of their waistlines.

I like to call this the “Muffin Top” vs. the “Six Pack.” (more…)
