Everyone tells women that they should practice self-care because then we’ll have more to give to others.

That’s nice and all, but how about the radical idea that maybe we should practice self-care because we’re effing WORTH IT?!?

Do you know my story?

Do you know WHY I do what I do?

Looking at me, it’s easy to think that I’m lucky. That I’ve always looked like this, that I was an athlete, or have always been lean; that I’ve never struggled with my weight.

I used to be a size 18

There was one significant turning point that led me to getting serious about my health, and in turn wanting to help others get as healthy as they can.

Why is it that as we age, we know that our hormones create the shifts in our body that we’re experiencing (weight gain around the waist, anxiety, insomnia, weird energy fluctuations, etc.), yet we follow diet and exercise advice aimed at folks who don’t have hormonal fluctuations?

🤔

Interesting. Isn’t it?

If we’re doing everything the same as we used to, but we’re experiencing these new-to-me symptoms, we need new tactics - not the same advice that is aimed at men or women who don’t have these symptoms.

We need strategies and techniques specific to women in our situation.

I’ve got you covered. The Whittle your Middle Masterclass is EXACTLY what you need. Tune in tonight to find our why women aren’t just tiny men - and why we need a different approach.

See you tonight!

How many of you - when you’ve tried a new diet or exercise routine, and it hasn’t worked like you expected it to, or like everyone said it would - have left that experience feeling defeated, and like there’s something wrong with you?
- not the diet
- not the workout program
- but YOU?

🙋‍♀️

But here’s the thing: widely accepted diet and exercise protocols are geared towards the general population.

And women’s bodies above the age of 40 do not respond the same to general population advice.

#truth

Women’s bodies over the age of 40 change hormonally.

Those hormonal changes affect things like
- where we store body fat (the belly & mid-section)
- how we metabolize food
- how food makes us feel
- how exercise makes us feel
- how we sleep
- how we respond to stress
- what activities work best for our bodies
- and more...

When we follow gen pop advice, we’re buying into the idea that women’s bodies are just like men’s - just smaller.

And that 👏 just 👏 ain’t 👏 true 👏

Women’s bodies act differently than they did when we were younger - and certainly much different than men’s.

So, shouldn’t we follow eating, exercise, and general health advice geared towards women over 40?

Yes.

The answer is yes.

We should be paying attention to advice that is specific to us.

Tomorrow night - Tuesday October 15th - I’m hosting a Masterclass all about how to lose weight, balance your hormones & feel great for women over the age of 40.

My thoughts about self care tend to be totally different than what other people think of self care.

Typically, when we hear about self care, we think about massages, manicures, pedicures or other expensive treatments that give the illusion that self care is only for folks who can afford it.

Or we also hear about taking baths (which take a lot of water, time, and who’s going to clean the bathtub? 😂) and what if you don’t have a bathtub or just aren’t into baths or drinking tea?

These things are nice & if you enjoy them, you should totally do them.

But these things are escapist in nature - they perpetuate the idea that we should escape from our lives for short periods of time to regenerate.

But what if we didn’t need to escape from our lives?

What if we stopped trying to make everyone else happy & focused on making ourselves happy instead?

I know. Its a radical idea. 😉

But what if?

What if you said no when you really wanted to say no - instead of saying yes because you were afraid of what people would say? Or their judgments?

What if you traded in the 30 seconds of discomfort in disappointing Lisa because she wants you to make 12 dozen cupcakes for her fund raiser for giving up the feeling of resentment because you’re making these freakin cupcakes & it’s 10 o’clock on Sunday night & you’re not done?

That’s self care.

It’s about tuning in to what you really want instead of making everyone else happy.

Self care is about showing up for yourself. Having your own back.

Its about being your authentic self and as a result, having authentic relationships - which then create an authentic life.

A life that you don’t need to escape from.
