"I am thankful to be part of the "Platinum Club"...aka men and women over the age of 50 that are taking care of their bodies."

About Me:

I am continuing on this health & fitness mission which is actually a lifestyle choice now. My username continues to serve as a daily reminder, too. I exercise consistenly and eat foods I enjoy with an eye on its nutritional value. I've never been one to fall for those new diet trends/fads. I'm not looking for temporary and quick fixes. Slow and permanent changes are the way to personal opinion.

The nutritional side is very important especially with a family history of the chronic diseases (hypertension, heart disease, diabetes type 2).

My initial form of exercise used to be walking several years ago which did help me with weight loss but did absolutely nothing to re-shape my body nor did it make me strong (build muscle). Since then I have gained more knowledge in doing what really works for my body….strength training each week (two to three days only) which includes a metabolic cardio finisher. I still do brisk short walks on none strength training days.

My strength training uses compound exercises . Compound exercises give me the most bang for time spent exercising! To change up things I will use different training methods (set/rep schemes).

If you are a 60+ woman like me, one benefit of strength training is that it will greatly enhance bone density and help build/maintain lean muscle. We need our muscles as we age to continue doing functional daily duties.

I’ve always been an “at home exerciser” and that is not going to change. Exercising at home leaves me NO room for excuses…lol. You do need the discipline to do so and not just look for motivation to carry you every day….just my opinion based on experience.
