Under an Hour a Day: Essential Habits for a Successful Midlife Health Journey

In this week's post, I share with you some powerful habits that can create a successful midlife health journey, all in under an hour a day. Whether you're short on time or looking for efficient ways to improve your health through midlife, these habits are perfect for you.  

But before we dive in, if you're serious about transforming your health and want personalized guidance, consider joining my coaching program. You'll get tailored advice and support to help you reach your midlife goals efficiently. I know you don't want to spend hours on your nutrition and fitness! Reach out to me if you’d like more information!

Let's talk about the first habit: morning movement. Starting your day with even just 15-20 minutes of exercise can boost your energy levels, improve your mood, and set a positive tone for the rest of the day. This could be a quick HIIT session or strength training workout, a brisk walk, or some yoga. Dance around your living room or kitchen if you like, just get moving!

The next habit is meal prepping. Spend 10-20 minutes in the evening planning or preparing your meals for the next day. This not only saves time but also ensures you're making the choices you need to for your goals. Simple tasks like planning what meals you’ll be eating the next day, ordering groceries, looking over a restaurant menu if you'll be eating out, pre-logging your macros if you are tracking, making your lunch and/or snacks can make a big difference. And if you're finding these tips helpful, don't forget to share this post with a friend who might benefit too! 

Lastly, let's talk about mindfulness. Take 5-10 minutes each day for activities like meditation, deep breathing exercises, or journaling…even self care time like your facial cleansing routine, dry brushing or sitting in a sauna is a good time to be thoughtful. This can help reduce stress, improve mental clarity, and support overall well-being so you can prioritize your goals and take care of YOU! I like to take this time when I’m in my sauna blanket. (I got this one on Amazon)

By incorporating these habits into your daily routine, you can create a successful health journey in under an hour a day. If you're ready to take your health to the next level, think about joining my coaching program for personalized support and guidance.

Tips to Stay on Track this Labor Day Weekend

Hi everyone! 

Labor Day is right around the corner and the end of summer parties are too. 
Raise your hand if you have big plans for the weekend? 

It can be easy to fill up on junk food and alcohol and desserts. 

So how can you enjoy your good-bye to summer party without throwing in the towel on your healthy habits?

Here’s the deal…you do not have to go into your weekend with an all or nothing attitude. You CAN have fun, stay healthy and STILL enjoy your weekend!

Here’s how:
  1. exercise - if you know you are going to splurge, start off with a great workout. Get a good workout done and get the furnace going. If you do a good workout, your body will be in fat burning mode through out your day.
  1. save your calories - if you know that you are going to an afternoon or evening party, try breaking your fast later in the day. This means you can enjoy al the yummy food during the party without worrying that you are eating too much.
  1. bring your own dish - there are so many amazing recipes you can serve (or bring) that the entire crowd will love! You don't have to sacrifice flavor or your desserts to stay healthy and still enjoy your holiday weekend.
Remember, living a healthy lifestyle means we know how balance our choices. The majority of the time, eat spot on and healthy! But make time to enjoy a treat, dessert, special meal or a drink! When you eat like this, you don't feel deprived! It's all about moderation!  Know when enough is enough!

If you need help building healthy habits, I would love for you to join my next round of FASTer Way to Fat Loss starting SEPT 16 - learn more here.
