Do you know the #1 needle mover exercise for weight loss in midlife?
Are you ready to feel good again?
A winning and abundant mindset is your key.
Your mindset is like the railroad tracks laid down for the train to ride on and when you’ve got the railroad tracks you can just truck right along. Not without obstacles but you’ve got a path.
Let’s talk today about a mindset of consistency over perfection with the Trim Healthy Mama plan.
What mindset are you cultivating? An abundant mindset looks for possibility. It is a mindset that is pointed in the direction of believing and asking “What if this is possible?”
What you believe, you will create. If you believe you have to be...
Today, let's dive into the amazing process of transformation, particularly in the context of menopause.
When you start on a transformation journey, whether it's a quest for weight loss, a newfound exercise routine, or the journey through menopause, our initial expectation often leans towards immediacy. We anticipate swift results, envisioning a rapid metamorphosis. However, real transformation is a patient artist, painting its masterpiece over time. It thrives on consistency, repetition, and the commitment to small, incremental improvements. This is where the magic lies and this is the long game we need to embrace.
What does that mean? Transformation isn't merely about shedding physical weight; it's a shift in...
Menopause and midlife bring a unique set of challenges, and one of the most common and frustrating among them is the issue of weight gain. You're not alone in this struggle; many women like you are experiencing the same thing. But the good news is, I’m here to debunk some of the myths and provide you with effective solutions to help you navigate this transformative phase of life.
One common misconception is that menopause happens suddenly. All of a sudden, everything changes, right? Well, not exactly. Menopause is more of a gradual process, stretching over several years. It typically begins with perimenopause, which can start as early as your late 30s. So, if you're thinking everything happened suddenly, think again.
Menopause is not...
Midlife can bring about a host of challenges, but perhaps one of the most pervasive is the struggle with weight. With age, our metabolism slows down, and the routines we've stuck with for decades might not serve us anymore. But the journey to health isn’t just about the physical. It’s a mental challenge. If you’ve been lying to yourself about why can't lose weight or why Trim Healthy Mama won't work for you, now is the time to change your narrative. Let's dive into how you can cultivate a mindset for weight loss in midlife, one that is honest, encouraging, and transformative.
Sometimes, the biggest lies we tell are the ones we tell ourselves. These lies might include:
"I'm too old to change."
"This is just how my body is now."
"I've tried everything; nothing works for...
Are you navigating the twists and turns of menopause symptoms while trying to stay on track with your weight loss journey?
Believe me, you’re not alone.
So many women, as they approach midlife, struggle with hormonal changes, which can make weight loss seem even more challenging.
As a Trim Healthy Mama coach who focuses on helping women in menopause & perimenopause, I’m here to guide you through some tried-and-true techniques to face these challenges head-on.
Remember the time when sticking to a health plan seemed effortless? And whatever you were doing, exercise or calorie counting, got you the results you were striving to get?
The thought, "it's just too hard right now," creates feelings of defeat.
But our mindset, and our thoughts, have...
Do you ever feel depressed, anxious, or guilty about food before or after eating?
Do you ever wish you could just make it through the day without having to analyze every little thing you eat and when/how you have to work out?
Do you want to avoid discouragement setting you back?
Are you ready to stop the excuses?
Then it’s time for you to get a weight loss mindset working for you. You see, most of us have a pre-established mindset full of unintentional thoughts. These thoughts are messages we get from ourselves, our family, and past experiences. Although it often feels impossible to just “think differently," sometimes making subtle changes in how you think is the KEY to skyrocketing your chances of success and giving you longer-lasting results.
So I'm going to give you seven keys to practice, to overcome self-sabotage.
Key one: be a detective and a watcher of...
What satisfies you?
When was the last time you paused to reflect and notice if you are satisfied or not?
If you’re like me, it’s been a while.
But I’m doing it now.
Satisfied is a word that reminds me of the children’s story about Goldilocks and the Three Bears. She goes about the bears’ home proclaiming something to be too much of this or not enough of that until she finds the one that is “just right”. That seems to be a good definition of satisfied - just right.
I love the verse in Matthew 14:20a which says, “And they all ate and were satisfied.”
Not too much or too little, but just right!
This is about one of the miraculous times that Jesus fed thousands of people when he only had 5 loaves of bread and 2 fish at his disposal.
He made sure that they had enough to satisfy their hunger.
They didn’t lack and they didn’t dip into gluttony. And what about Jesus? Did...
Not sure what to eat?
Don’t know which Trim Healthy Mama fuels you should put on your menu plan?
Let’s get some clarity.
Optimizing your eating plan during the menopause transition is key to getting weight loss results.
But, you can’t get those results if you are feeling confused, scattered, and overwhelmed.
Let me give you some peace, some security, and some confidence knowing that you are eating in a way that is blessing your body towards better health, vitality, and fat loss.
First, set your expectations correctly. You cannot be in a place of peace and kindness towards yourself if you are expecting to lose weight fast. Your body is special and needs the time it needs to heal and release extra fat. Give yourself the gift of time.
Next, stop the searching and questioning. The Trim Healthy Mama eating plan is hands-down the best weight loss LIFESTYLE approach. You can tweak it...
Hormones play a large part of fat loss and I'm not just talking about estrogen, progesterone, testosterone or DHEA. I'm talking about all your hormones, but especially insulin, cortisol, thyroid, and estrogen. Those four hormones are really mack daddy hormones that contribute to weight loss.
The great thing about the Trim Healthy Mama plan is that everything that it stands for and all of the concepts the plan is based on help us with regulating blood sugar. There are some things though that need to change in our 40-plus season. These are the steps that we focus on in the Feminine Freedom path. Making these changes takes time and you might be frustrated with where you are right now. But if you can apply these principles, and you're consistent, then you can start shrinking fat cells, and you can see results. So I just want you to put on your patience.
The Trim Healthy Mama plan is our foundation, staying on plan is key but we tweak it for our...
Mark 5:34 “Daughter,” he said to her, “your faith has saved you. Go in peace, and be healed from your affliction.”
Jesus calls her Daughter.
What an intimate name. In that one word, he conveys fatherly warmth, love, compassion, and protection. This is an amazing moment where desperate faith stretches out to touch a holy God. In this Daughter’s desperation, she seeks him out.
She follows him. She had only heard about him. But she must know that He alone is the source of healing and hope. Why else would she have dared approach him? Yet she “came up behind him”, not to his face.
Have you ever felt your faith desperate yet strained at the same time?
Maybe you feel unworthy. Maybe you've only heard about the goodness of God but have yet to experience it for yourself and so you are uncertain, scared to even dare to trust. But you look at your affliction and know that only by His hand will you find restoration and peace...
