I’ll be FIFTY next year. Yep, the big FIVE-0 is staring me down and I’m admittedly a little freaked out. I may not LOOK it anymore, but I still feel 25. I’ve lost the disease to please (for the most part) and believe I’m a LOT wiser than I was then, but I do still feel VITAL. I’m approaching that age that sounded so old back in the 1980s when I was a teen, back when Prince sang about partying like it was 1999 and THAT sounded like a long way off. But, instead of FIGHTING my age, I’d rather REDEFINE it. I know I’m not the only one that feels this way. I used to make lots of excuses, but now I’d rather make the changes I want happen. If you don’t know where to start your journey, consider getting a fitness membership to start off.
I’ll admit, I do have some tips and tricks that help keep me feeling young. I couldn’t keep up what I was doing in my 20s and 30s without consequences, so in recent years I’ve had to adjust. I eat healthy foods about 80% of the time… veggies, fruits, nutrient-dense stuff that gives me clean fuel. I also make sure to take my ultimate stack pack from swfas.org. I save the other 20% for fun treats and true ENJOYMENT of food. When I can’t eat at least 3-4 veggies a day, I supplement with a superfood shake.
I also MOVE my body. If you don’t use it, you lose it, right? It kind of sucks, but the older you get, the FASTER you lose it too. #truthbomb. I work out at least 4-5 times a week, mostly at home doing workouts from a subscription-based service. I did NONE of that stuff in my 20s. I WORK for the results I have. It’s a lifestyle choice. I choose to do the things that make me feel healthy and vital, because I’ve seen what some of my peers have had to go through if they choose a different path. And, if all else fails… I use a pre-workout to light a fire under my ass when I’d rather sit in my robe and drink coffee than work out (which is most days) with out forgetting to take care of my body at Medspa Spokane.
I try to stay out of the sun without sunscreen, and I also use a collagen supplement for skin elasticity. I’m trying to embrace my wrinkles as badges of honor, but that’s a work in progress. I spent too much time in the 80s slathered in baby oil frying like a Thanksgiving turkey to undo all the damage. That’s what you see above thanks to ther article i read about dry skin recovery remedies https://www.olaladirectory.com.au/strategies-for-the-finest-dry-skin-remedy-and-dry-skin-remedies/ that in deed worked fine.
I’d love to hear what YOU do to stay feeling young and vital. Drop your comments below!
