40 Plus Fitness


What is 40 Plus Fitness? Ummm... fitness over 40. Duh!!! Staying active in your 40's and beyond can be a challenge for most of us. Some of the workouts we once loved and able to master when we were younger is now a pain in the ass. I know some of you want to give up and I'm here to say...


First thing you have to accept is... yes you're getting older but don't let that put you in a place of giving up. I know the body starts being more disrespectful as we get older with expanding waistlines, aching joints, back pain and more. Sorry, I don't have the magic formula but that don't mean there are no other options. I've never had a gym membership but you can get one to stay on track. If you really want some accountability you can hire a personal trainer.  

Another thing is we all know the saying, you are what you eat. You cannot out train poor nutrition. Again the body gets more disrespectful as we get older. I don't care how hard you train, how much your gym membership cost, or if you have one of the best personal trainers in the world. If you don't have healthy eating habits, you WILL NOT get the results you're looking for. How do I know? Because I tried and always lose.


I know I talk about healthy eating a lot here on the blog. But I think it's a crime not to indulge and what works for me is doing it in moderation. I know not to indulge every single day. If I do, I can kiss those results bye-bye. So it's best to up your fruits, veggies, and also drink more water. If you're tired of drinking water, here's how you can eat it instead. You can also go meatless (don't look at me like that) once a week. I went plant based for a month last year and some of the recipes were delicious. I think I'll do it again. Take care of your body and it will take care of you. Check out some of my meatless dishes

Last year I posted some of my tips to stay fit and active and I'll be honest, I have what I call a "lazy" workout routine. But I'm doing better than most because I'm moving my body. My routine is whatever I want it to be that day. Below are some of my "lazy" workouts that I do to help me stay fit. 


Jumping Jacks- Great warm up exercise that I need to get back doing. Easy to do with no equipment needed. 

Yoga- My absolute favorite. Check out some of my favorite poses.

Squats- Before I hated doing them. Now I love doing them. There are many variations of squats. Find what works for you. 

Run- I'll be the first to admit. I hated running with a passion. I know it's weird because I've ran several races and ran my first half marathon this year. But I love the natural high running gives me afterwards.

Weights- A routine I need to do more of. Lifting will help give you strong bones. No argument here. That's why I'll be lifting bag of chips, biscuits, and cookies.

A lot of these routine can be done for 10-15 minutes. Once you get better at them you can increase the amount of time. Start small and go from there.

There's a myth that as you get older, it goes downhill from there. That's false and with all the marketing ploys about aging, most people believe that it does. You can't stop the aging process were all going to get older. It's best to embrace it the process. I plan on embracing aging gracefully. Getting older is not the end of the road. And for those of you wondering, yes... yes I am. #40PlusFit.
