Don’t Feel As Old As You Look

That’s not to say that you don’t look good but it’s time to face the facts folks, each of us gets older every year. Plus, once you’re past the child-bearing years mother nature is not your friend.

Does that sound harsh? Sorry, it’s a harsh world and sometimes you have to be cruel to be kind, so . . .

Don’t Look As Old As You Feel, either.

Mother Nature is concerned about propagating species, and in our case that means continuing the human race. She’s NOT concerned about the individual.

At around age 30-35, our metabolic life changes and decrepitude begins to creep in (slowly for some, but always surely) and if dearest Mother Nature gets her way the sooner we’re gone and leave room for the generation behind us the happier she’ll be!

(Don’t take my word for it, here’s a link to The Metabolic Plan which will explain the concept in detail if you’re interested in knowing more.)

All I want to say is it’s not only possible but it’s nice to fool Mother Nature. It’s not even difficult, really. All you have to do is . . .

Power Up Your Health

Eat right, get the nutrients your body needs, and exercise.

I prefer walking, of course, which is great for cardio health and building lower body strength. If you supplement regular walks with a weight bearing routine for your upper body, you’re good to go as far as the exercise piece is concerned.

But let me stress, daily movement is key, AND if you have enough energy coursing through your body exercise becomes a physical mandate that your body DEMANDS from you–hard to believe but it’s true.

In other words, you begin craving exercise when routines are established and energy levels are high.

The good news is you can control your energy levels.

Eating right and getting the nutrients you need, however, is a little more complicated than exercise because there are a million diets out there and everyone has an opinion about which one is best for you.

I happen to think if you use the word diet you’re screwed because being healthy is a lifestyle and feeling deprived when it comes to food will sabotage the best intentions. I say, be responsible for your own health and . . .

Speaking of which, I’m gathering my friends and having a party to share what I’ve learned about “metabolic age” and ways you can dramatically improve how you experience the aging process.

I hope you will join me. Here’s the invitation . . .

details of Connie's Power Up Your Health Party

do come ~ all are welcome

Tell your friends, bring your family and come learn how to STAY YOUNGER LONGER, naturally.

The human body is designed to live 120 years, and it’s possible to live a long and healthy life–well past our national average of 77.1 years. But you have to know how to do it, and you have to be proactive. The good news is it’s easy.

Come to my party on Friday and let me and some of my friends show you how.

It’ll be fun, I promise. In the meantime . . .

Walk on my friends.
Walk On!

so connie if the human body is designed to live to 120 how come mother nature works to get rid of us after child bearing years?

That’s a very good question, Anne. If our bodies were properly nourished from the get-go, I imagine the time frame for everything would be pushed out extending child-bearing years into the 50s and early 60s. Which from my current pov, makes for an alarming visual. And would that make the teenage years last until 36?

It’s hard to imagine living that long and what it would look like, but I’ll ask someone who might know when I get a chance, and get back to you.

Thanks for asking, Anne.
