As we age, we typically lose lean body mass and gain fat mass… It’s a natural change that occurs with our body composition. However, we can fight this by working on maintaining our lean body mass through lifting and burning fat through exercise… When our body composition is more balanced, we naturally have a stronger and more balanced signalling systems in our body which naturally keeps up our energy and our hormone balance as well.
The moment you sit by and allow the natural body composition change to occur, you will see fat build up around the middle, and muscle mass on limbs and body start to decline… Do not let this happen if you can help it!Fighting this will keep you younger longer, keep you well, and keep up your energy… If you’re like me… as a grandma, I want to be able to keep up to my three-year-old grandson and I do not want to be sitting in a chair, being tired, lazy, and weak, because my body has aged too much…no thanks!
We can fight this natural aging process and it just takes a bit of work a few times a week to build muscle mass, to reduce fat and to re-balance of hormones and then look and feel much younger as a result! Incorporating clean/whole food eating lifestyle, adding superfoods and eliminating pop and junk/processed food will get you there even faster!
Without your health, what do you really have? We all want energy and a sense of well-being and we know how much it changes our life when we feel good!!. Get started now and make a change for the better! Improve the quality of your life, change your body composition, balance those hormones, and build some muscles! It’s not that hard, and it only takes work a few days a week to get it done!
Getting yourself a nutrition and fitness coach can also make all the difference… And I definitely recommend it as it made such a big difference for me. It made such a difference in fact… that I decided to become a coach myself and I even took special training on strategic intervention so that I could be the most effective coach possible for you.
if you have been looking for a completely new approach a new way to get into good shape… Perhaps it’s time to message me and to get onto a program with the support of coach.Don’t delay..there is no time like NOW to get going and get those hormones and muscles in check!
Barely moving this morning after two very long and busy work days and very little sleep… Upon awakening, I felt heavy, cloudy in the head, and weighed-down today and kind of stiff and sore all over.
Despite feeling exhausted, I made myself get up and At ‘em anyways and finished a 20 minute HIIT, Lift and core prep work out for our upcoming 8-week fitness program starting July 16. I was telling myself…”seriously, how could you contemplate not doing just a 20 minute workout”…
I made myself do it…. 20 minutes may not sound like much, but it was very challenging and I was totally worked into a sweat! you know what, after the workout was over and i stretched a bit, came upstairs to make coffee…i noticed i was feeling completely different. I felt lighter on my feet, my mind felt clear, I had more energy and motivation and it feels good! Now clearly remembering this feeling will be some fuel to motivate me for the next workout tomorrow morning! 🙂
So, why push myself like this?
When you’re super busy and yet want to be healthy, it’s so important to find some type of a program that you can incorporate into your busy life… Because…our Health is critical for everything! If we don’t have our health, how can we accomplish things? If we don’t have our health, how will we have motivation to focus on anything else in life such as work, family, kids or other things? When our health is not good, we are focused only on that and ourself (for obvious reasons) and life comes to a grinding halt in so many ways!
So, whats the answer here?
This HIIT and lift program incorporates muscle building, fat burning, and core exercises plus has a very simple nutrition plan to follow. If this is something that I can incorporate working 12 to 14 hour days, then I think most people could find a way! (And I don’t like to cook either!) There are only 4 workouts per week that are 30-40 min. There are no excuses not to fit that in!
So, how does this apply to you?
If you are looking for a very simple program to boost your health, lose weight, get into the best shape of your life, and something that can be incorporated into a very busy lifestyle… Then you need to consider this program and a coach to help you through it!
To be personally coached by me through this 8-week program, you may apply for my services (serious applicants only)… Or, if you just want more information feel free to message me.

I remember just over three years ago when I became a grandmother for the first time… Just how that felt (…omg, I am a grandma?)
It was at this moment that I took a look at myself and realized that I needed to work on my health and fitness! Having the new label of grandma was shocking and made me feel like I was getting “old”! The worst part was, that I was almost 50 pounds overweight and when I tried to go onto my lawn to play around with my daughter to do some gymnastics and some cart wheels like I used to… I literally suffered for weeks in pain after that… Which reinforced how old and awful I was feeling! I felt sore, tired, achy, miserable and downright fat and out of shape!
It was at that moment I made the determined decision to get myself back into shape! “Seriously!”, I had asked myself…”what happened to your body?”Eugh!!!
I took action at this point! I got myself a fitness coach, allowed myself to be “coachable”, joined my coach’s exercise recommended program, started superfood and other supplements to boost my energy and I totally transformed my body in a matter of a few months! I dropped 35 pounds, regained my energy and was even able to run, jump and do gymnastics without pain!Over those few months, my determination and my physiotherapist helped meto overcome my chronic knee and back pain and now I have NO MORE suffering!
WOW! Who knew this was possible?
In fact, I was so impressed with the coach and the program that I became a coach myself.I was totally inspired and wanted to help others to achieve their health and fitness goals like I did!I learned that anything is possible if you put your mind to it and LISTEN to your coach!
So …fast forward to today… here is me (in photo above) preparing to be the best coach that I can be for my clients… Here I am training to become proficient with the form and the moves for the new upcoming lift and HIIT program starting July 16 to be the best coach possible to support my clients.
A question I get asked… “Can I join your coaching program to become a fit grandma like you?”
The answer is YES! …For the upcoming program, I can only take 5 more clients and entry to my program is by application only. If you are a person who is determined and coachable, and want to achieve great things in your health and fitness in 8 weeks, you may want to consider application to this special program.

The beauty of HIIT workouts is that you can do a very short workout and burn a tonne of fat! In today’s world, things are so busy and it feels like were all so short on time… So, we need a workout that’s going to give us maximum benefit in the shortest amount of time!!
Ideally, a workout program would include some weights and some HIIT to maximize muscle building as well as fat burning all in one short and sweet workout!!Now wouldn’t that be awesome?
It was like a dream come true when I heard about a new program coming out that is exactly that!! Just what I was looking for!! …
A program that provides structured workouts involving weights and HIIT all in one and… In a short workout only four days a week! No seriously… That sounds so doable and awesome! Don’t you think?
Starting in mid July, I have made the decision to lead a small group of motivated busy people through this new program by setting up a private accountability group.As a very busy grandma and professional, (and business owner), it is ultra important to maintain energy and health not only for myself and my patients… But also for my little grandson who is full of energy at three years old and who wants a grandma that he can go play with outside who won’t get tired out after only a couple minutes LOL 😂
In order to be effective at coaching and leading you through this program (including nutrition), I am going to limit the participants to 10 to 12. Those interested in joining this exclusive coaching program will need to apply to join and show that they are truly committed before getting accepted.
As a bonus for being part of this special program, you will learn to develop a success mindset, learn the benefits of keto as well as how to maximize the power of momentum in your life. (not to mention prizes for completion and participation as well!)
For questions about this program, comment in comments for this post or send me a private message! The time is ticking, so we need to have our group set up within the next week! Deadline for applications is June 30 and we need to have time to order in our supplies for a July 16th start date!
APPLY HERE to join this exclusive group… PLEASE NOTE! Only apply if you are truly committed to transforming your life!
Getting up a little earlier in the mornings, getting in a workout, having some quiet time alone to reflect and plan out your day and then having a superfood breakfast pretty much is the best way to start a day!Oh yes and I have a little energy booster before my workout too just to fire it up just a little more!
I remember back to the days when I would hardly be ableto drag myself out of bed, get into shower late then be scrambling to get ready in a mad rush.This was no way to live!It’s not enjoyable and does not give the day a good start at all!I was flying by the seat of my pants with no plan or positive feel for what my day was going to be like at all…not good.
With a morning routine that gives you breathing room, time to move your body, reflect, plan your day, have a green superfood breakfast, and breathe…it totally changes the game of life! You are more productive, positive and happy as a result of starting the day in a good way…and it feels great too😁
An early morning cardio core workout really got the sweat moving and the core burning! These exercise sliders are the total bomb!👍🏻. Feeling accomplished today with this workout. Officially done day 23 of 80✅ of current challenge!
I remember when I was battling with my weight over the years… 190-200 lb most of the time on my 5’9” frame was too much to carry around! My knees and my back suffered big time and I felt like I would never get better. I went through SO many diets like atkins, Somers, Mediterranean and so many more in a yo-yo fashion and was never ever able to keep the weight off!
I thank god for the day 3 years ago that I realized how truly out of shape and miserable I was! I did some cartwheels on the lawn then suffered with severe pain for more than 2 weeks after that! At that time, I knew I was about I become a new grandma and did NOT want to be a fat, lazy, boring and out of shape granny! No way! I wanted energy and to be fun to run around and play with!
I discovered p90x through a friend and ended up losing over 40 pounds and keeping it off by using superfood nutrition and by staying on track with different fitness challenges and nutrition plans to keep things interesting! (I get bored easily) …I even started running and did a number of 10 km runs and my knee and back pain got completely better!
Getting into shape and losing weight totally changed my life!! I am now pain free, have energy to run with my grandson and am keeping the weight off. It not only transformed me on the outside, but the biggest changes are on the inside! Being happy all the time is a great way to live! …and totally getting rid of all those perimenopausal symptoms this way!
If you are looking for a much better way to get into shape and feel the best you have ever felt in your life, message me and I can help you get started. Seriously, the accountability, support and success with this program is totally worth it!
I really did it this time. Putting myself on the back-burner and focusing on developing a new business to help others with their medical care. For months, I was not focused on my health or fitness whatsoever, had huge stress at work (the JOB) and ended up sick with pneumonia and 20 lb heavier. YUP, not smart.
I started a new business back in March 2017 with a focus on providing medical services to clients in their homes or offices and even through telemedicine. It was super fun and I was VERY focused on getting people the care they needed with top notch quality. I found out that when I took my focus off my health at the same time, I ended up on a downward spiral with my health that just kept getting worse. I was snacking more to keep awake, I was sleeping less, drinking more caffeine, too tired to get up in the morning to work out, just a vicious cycle I was in and could not snap out of it even though I was feeling crappy and knew what I needed to do.
I had a lot of stress at my “JOB”, since, when I started a private medical service in March, there was bullying that took place and, even though I knew I could not work in that environment, I hung onto it because of seniority and the fact that I could retire with my magic 80 after only 5 years! It kept me going, but only hanging on by a thread. I was working hard to stay positive, but the bullying got worse and even continued once i resigned from the position. I felt strong through it all, but once it was over, I felt a heavy weight on me that held me down and made me believe less in myself overall. I realized after it was all over that I really should have resigned MUCH sooner!
My Pneumonia knocked me flat for 6 weeks in July and August 2017 (which was likely from significant stress from work that had knocked out my immune system)…after that, my energy would just not come back at all. My digestive system was shot, I had no energy at all, my whole body was sore and I started to feel demotivated and depressed. Now that I am looking back, I can see what a horrible state I was in, yet I just kept going and helping others since that was the only thing I felt good about.
My mental and physical health seemed to be on a continual downer over September and October as I was not consistently exercising, was still sore all over and was just not sleeping well. I was really feeling rotton and had no belief in myself at all! I felt that the only thing that made me worth anything was to provide excellent care to my patients… It was fine when I was out on the road seeing patients, I laughed and smiled and enjoyed my work, but when I would get home, its like reality would hit again and I would feel down, and eat crappy food again.
I had booked an event to see Tony Robbins in November (UPW) earlier in the year and was not even excited about going to that. Before I left, I was trying to pump myself up and feel good about it, but I was feeling guilty about not being available for housecalls while I was away, and just didn’t feel happy. While at the event, I felt hope creeping back and the intense work we did at the seminar to rediscover the belief in ourself was helping me to re-discover that everything we need to have a happy and fulfilling life is right in side us already. It is just a matter of finding it and expressing it. Well, I felt my positive energy climbing and totally participated and did the work. It felt awesome!
Then, we came home and I felt bloated and icky from all the eating out and snacks…so I weighed myself and realized I had packed on 8 pounds in just one week while i was away. This really sent the belief in myself down the tubes again. I felt tired, gross and my whole body hurt. I made a decision to do a 10-day complete nutrition reset 3 days ago. I got rid of all snack foods and unhealthy bits from the house and was eating only veggies, healthy proteins and fruits. The first 2 days of this were very difficult! I was so tempted to quit because of the severe headaches and body pains i was having.
However, I woke up this morning and could NOT believe how much clearer my mind was! I was able to get up, do a HIIT workout and then did 30 min of YOGA which was super tough, but I felt a strength inside me that I really could do it!! I was feeling belief in myself coming back which was very powerful! It was this morning that I truly realized the power of self-belief and with my renewed energy, am feeling that I will be truly unstoppable from now on. I decided I will never let myself get sucked into that stress vortex again without exiting PROMPTLY from the situation for my own health. Sometimes we make excuses for not leaving such as we “need the money” or “don’t want to lose our seniority”….bah to that. I left 27000 seniority hours and Magic 80 retirement plan behind. To heck with it. Being stuck in a stressful scenario is VERY destructive to our health and I was on that downward spiral myself, so I know how it feels! I could hardly stand myself being like that, but could not snap out of it.
If you are feeling stuck and stressed and not believing in yourself…. seriously, consider doing a nutrition reset for yourself, get OUT of the stressful situation(s) you are in (get out quickly, do not wait!) and just feel the positive energy start to flow. The belief in yourself will naturally start to happen! Ask me if you need help with this!
I am feeling very encouraged today and ready to start sharing my health journey again with a new start and I hope that you will continue to follow me and learn from my mistakes. We are human and do make far too many mistakes, but as long as we learn from them, we are still growing as a person. Just KNOW that everything you need to have a happy and fulfilled life is inside you RIGHT NOW.
I am going to start today by re-educating myself on the key tips to achieve SELF DISCIPLINE. I have put a copy HERE for you as well!
I got a great sweat on this morning with a yoga and Pilates continuous movement combination work out… It was really tough but I felt great and was dripping sweat afterwards… I never really thought that I would enjoy this type of exercise, but I’m finding out that it is really improving my health and I’m totally loving it!!
September is approaching and I don’t know about you, but I find September is a great time of year to start new things, develop my knowledge, and get creative by implementing new things into my life. I have always felt this way I guess because September is the start of a new school year and it’s just a great time to start implementing change. Some people get nervous about making changes but it truly is exciting if you make yourself do things outside your comfort zone!
Starting in September, I plan to implement a completely new diet regimen, a new exercise plan, and as well implement a new and exciting career in providing healthcare services with my own business. I am adding this to my already existing health business where I help people with fitness, optimizing their nutrition and lifestyle change as a coach … It is all just very exciting …even though it can be scary at times, I am pushing through the fear!
Make September the decision time to make a change in your life! Take a course! Start a new health plan! Revamp your financial plan! Dig into that relationship you have been afraid to take to the next level! Make a career change! Start a new business!
Do something to make fall time exciting! It makes the transition to winter much easier when you are feeling fulfilled, energized, healthy, happy and passionate about something you love!
FYI… My job as a FREE coach is to help you select the health program that will best help you achieve your goals… Be sure to contact me to discuss!
When it comes to health and fitness, you just gotta START.
Don’t wait until the time is right, don’t wait until after some event, or to start tomorrow…don’t wait until you have more money or until a loan is paid off. We will always have these procrastination style excuses, so might as well set them aside and get going!!
The time to start is as soon as you get the idea that you maybe should do something about your health. Drop everything and go for a walk, write down ideas for healthy meals for the week… whatever it is…just START right away as soon as the thought strikes you! Recruit the help of a coach (like me) to keep you accountable to the promises to yourself.
Without our health, life is just not the same. Since I have committed to being healthy, every area of my life has improved… happier, more energy, more productive etc. No more of being in pain all the time, miserable, not sleeping and just plain grouchy and unhappy. I am proof that health and fitness, personal development, a coach to keep you accountable and superfood literally transforms you from the inside out.
Today was chest and triceps workout…day #1 of a new 56 day fitness challenge. Got it done ✅ and now time for some superfood to recover then a hot shower to get ready for a busy day!
Moved up to the BEAST segment of my 91 day fitness challenge today! (Day 71 done! ✅). I upped my weight, feeling great and after getting those shoulders, triceps and chest pumped up…decided to have some fun with it! Why not go for the muscular granny look 😂
Have you ever had a vision for how you want your body to look and feel?Having a vision is very powerful. Every month on the first of the month, I visualize what I want to achieve that month and write it at the top of my workout calendar. I use power words that get me fired up and energized to kick my butt for the month. For example, my June power words are to be a: strong, determined, healthy, muscular and chiseled Granny… I find this process very motivating! 100x more motivating!
If you think about it…. telling yourself that you “should ” be working out and that you “should” be eating healthy and having to PUSH yourself into things you don’t want to do can have a de-motivating effect over time. Having an exciting vision actually PULLS you along, creates excitement …then the goals are more naturally achieved with ease and less pressure. When your our mind believes in your vision it naturally just wants to do the right things to get there!
What kind of ideas do you have to boost motivation to keep you active and healthy?
