Let’s talk about motivation…

 

Tip #1 - you do not have to FEEL motivated to take ACTION.

 

I like to look at motivation as something I can create with my thoughts. 

 

It would be great if we all felt motivated to do the things we know are good for us and will bring better health. Sadly, this is not how life works. But, by shifting away from how you feel and into creating motivation with your thoughts, you will be much more effective at reaching your health and weight loss goals.



Rethinking Motivation: Action Before Inspiration

How do you take action even when you don’t FEEL motivated?

 

When I am looking at whatever action I want to take, whether it's to work out with my weights, go for a walk, work on a project that I'm not super excited about, or make dinner, if I’m waiting for the feeling of motivation before I begin, it keeps me in a space of...

Are you a woman over 40 struggling with sugar cravings during menopause? 

You're not alone. 

Many women in this stage of life find themselves battling cravings, weight gain, and frustration with slow progress. 

But don’t get discouraged. In this post, we will explore game-changing strategies to help you gain better control over your eating habits and conquer those sugar cravings once and for all.


Why do I want junk food?

Menopause brings hormonal changes that mess with your body; these changes may cause increased sugar cravings and less willpower. 

They are often a result of your brain seeking a dopamine hit, which highly processed foods provide. The dopamine hit isn’t bad, and you can get it by eating fruits or walking. 

 

"The key is to realize that your thoughts are actually a part of the problem."

 

The good news is that you can change your...

Unlocking Success Through Decisiveness

In a world filled with health and wellness aspirations, many women over 40 find themselves yearning for powerful results.

Life often brings disappointments, and today, I'm sharing my personal experience, particularly in the context of my health journey and recent Masterclass training. Disappointment is a common companion in our pursuits, whether it's achieving goals or navigating the challenges of a weight loss and health journey.

 

Understand Disappointment: It’s a 50/50 Reality

Disappointment is a universal part of life—a delicate balance between setbacks and successes, rejection and approval. We seldom discuss how to navigate and move through disappointment effectively. In my journey and with my clients, disappointment is a recurring theme, often rooted in unmet weight loss expectations.

4 Ways to Stay Motivated, Lose Weight and Exercise after 50

Hello friends, let's talk today about tips to stay motivated and on track in midlife. 

This is a hot topic in my Facebook communities and conversations with many women. 

 

Why is it so hard to stay motivated?

 

It's more than lacking self-discipline or laziness. In fact, the number one reason might be due to declining hormones. When you lose your estrogen, you often lose your get-up-and-go. You might also notice less energy in your mood and need more motivation. Lack of sleep might be slowing your energy level down, as well as a decrease in testosterone. Testosterone is your "get 'er done" hormone, while progesterone contributes to better mood and optimism, but when these hormones are low or non-existent, feeling motivated will be an issue.

 

Or perhaps you're just feeling discouraged because losing weight after 50 takes longer and is more challenging than you expected, even if...
