My big A-HA moment came to me during a pre-menopausal epiphany. I suddenly realised the only thing holding me back was myself! I decided to put an end to it and work towards my new destination of happiness!
I changed my eating and drinking habits, started exercising and lost over 30kg! I loved the new me and I wanted to inspire other women, just like myself, to start their new life journey towards the best version of themself.
Changing your life is a challenge and this is why I created New Horizons Fitness- to help women get through the difficult times and find their passion for a positive life change.
Knowledge and accountability is power so you’re less likely to throw in the towel if you have dedicated support and guidance of another woman (especially a feisty one like me!)
Here Are My Top 10 Tips To Be Fab and Fit at Fifty!
Don’t skip breakfast: Even if you don’t feel too hungry when you first wake up, make sure you eat something before leaving for work for the day. This will kick start your metabolism and stop you bingeing at morning tea time.
Rest: Your body needs it! Listen to your body and rest when you need to and schedule in planned days off exercise.
Tell your friends: Your friends can hold you accountable by supporting and giving you motivation
Eat wholesome: Choose foods that offer sustenance and are unprocessed. Food is fuel so why give your body anything less than the best possible vitamins and nutrients?
Keep a diary: Write down your food and exercise each day. Be honest so you can monitor your improvements over time.
Get the family involved: It will be beneficial to everyone to eat healthily and will ensure you stay committed to your new lifestyle.
Lift weights: Don’t be scared! Start small and build your way up. Lean muscle speeds up your metabolism.
Have fun: Do things you enjoy. Try exercising that you used to love or you think would be fun to try. Getting fit doesn’t have to mean going running or doing burpees. Join a dance class, join a sports team- whatever is going to make you happy!
