Listen up!

Are you listening?

Good. Because out of everything I have to say — this is the most important thing. You are a bad-to-the-bone lady boss who will never be too old to go after your goals.

You are strong. You are capable. And you can kill it at ANY age.

But here’s the thing — you have to commit to some key transformations to see real change. Don’t be nervous! I promise you have it in you.

You CAN do it. And you’ll feel fabulous when you do.

Transform Your Meals

I want you to take the word diet, crunch it up into a little ball, and toss it in the trash. Throwing some cheese on top of bacon and calling that a healthy low-carb diet is not the direction to go.

It’s all about transforming what you consume. Eat a variety of colorful whole foods that nourish your body.

If you want a lean, fit, healthy body to shimmy into your favorite swimwear — you have to pay attention to some key food items…

  • Protein, protein, protein! The literal key to building muscle
  • Lots of leafy greens for essential vitamins and nutrients
  • Skip the sugary, processed stuff and try to cook at home often
  • Don’t be shy of properly sourced complex carbohydrates
  • Add some Omega-3 rich foods that cut down inflammation
  • Add active cultures to help aid in digestion
  • Stay hydrated! And consider intermittent fasting

Diet is somewhere around 80 percent of weight management and body composition. Only somewhere around 20 percent is your actual workout.

So plan out a good spread of natural foods to get the fuel you need for your body!

Transform Your Workouts

Here’s the thing. Workouts still play a vital role in body transformation.

There are a few categories that you should pay attention to when it comes to fitness. But first things first — you don’t have to kill yourself going to the gym seven days a week for two hours each session.

It’s all about target areas and proper balance…

✓ Get your steps in. Something as simple as walking can make a huge difference.

✓ Train different parts of the body on different days. This helps with overall gains.

✓ Don’t be afraid of weights and resistance training! It will help with definition and toning.

✓ Whole body care and tracking different key areas will help keep things balanced.

✓ Build those core muscles, but also keep up with other major muscle groups

✓ Keep aiming to progress as you get better with each workout

A few minor adjustments to your routine could be all you need to be able to take off your beach coverup with pride.

Transform Your Sleep

Who doesn’t like a warm bed and a good night's rest?

Think of your body like a battery. You are charging up to take on the next day, and the next time you work your core muscle groups.

➤ Energy

➤ Efficiency

➤ Recovery

➤ Performance

➤ Drive and Motivation

All reasons why sleep is important and how it helps keep you fit for those sunny vacations by the water.

A quote from Everyday Health says “Getting enough sleep can not only give you more drive and strength to maximize your workout, but its effects on concentration, mood, and focus can make you more efficient and better prepared for that workout.”

Sleep and success go hand in hand. Some make sure you are getting some good zzz’s.

Transform Your Mindset

I think I can, I think I can!

You won’t get very far if you can’t see the bigger picture. Once you have an end goal in mind, stick to it (like this one, of rocking a bikini on a sandy beach somewhere sunny and warm).

✓ Take baby steps and work your way to the big steps

✓ Don’t make changes all at once, get yourself used to small spurts of growth

✓ Celebrate wins and work through low points — ride the wave! (as they say)

✓ Ask questions if you need to and get support from a community

Remember — nothing happens overnight. Positivity and believing that you can do something can be a big influence on how everything plays out.

It’s amazing what the brain can do and how connected it is to the body.

Get After It

Age has its nasty little tricks — but you have the override button in your hand. Through some adjusting, planning, and putting in a little effort when it comes to your goals, it’s possible to get where you want to be faster than you think!

Be comfortable in your skin at any age in ANY exotic destination… or even just at home throwing on your pjs.

You’ve got this!
