This episode: Why midlife belly fat is common, and it’s a common question for me to answer. I’ll comment on that below.

First, it’s a sign, a symptom, not a sentence.

What you’re doing isn’t working. More of that is not going to work.

What causes it, is hormonal changes.

  • A loss of estrogen and increase of cortisol.
  • Insulin resistance
  • A lower level of testosterone and growth hormone (sleep disruption)
  • But beyond that, we’re responsibl...

    This post is full of gifts mom wants for Mother’s Day, but doesn’t even know she does!

    Did you know 40% of moms fake reactions to gifts they don’t like? Makes me wonder about all those poems I wrote when I was younger. She never used, “Interesting.” That’s code for, not my taste, but whatever you like. LOL!

    It’s no joke, mom doesn’t even know what she wants. This is a lot closer to the truth than not! In an appointment yesterday th...

    Midlife exercise myths run have a width continuum. Here’s the biggest, not even suggested in this post: these myths are truer the older you are. If you’re in your 50s those habits decrease exercise benefits. If you’re in your 60’s they’re derailing you. But in your 70s, they’re a downright train wreck.

    But back to those of you in your 50s. The damage these myths do while you’re in menopause will be more devastating in 10 years. You...

    High impact during menopause? Are you thinking that might get you hurt? With the wrong start and progression, it might. If you’re extremely fragile, or have co-existing conditions, it’s also not advised. But for other women transitioning through menopause, you need to look closely at what you’re doing, and what you believe.

    Two Groups:

  • High Impact weight-bearing + high intensity velocity resistance training 3x a week
  • Or to a con...

    Wonder how many repetitions to fatigue you should do? You're not alone. This Flipping 50 community question comes from Shelly and our Insiders Facebook group. (link below) 

    The Question:

    "20 for a set or a full minute, am I using too heavy of weights if I fatigue at 6 or 7? Maybe better question is “is there a MINIMUM number of reps [I] should be doing?” And then do I just wait as Debra finishes up or should I pause and do ...

    Warning! If you believe any of these myths about strength training, my goal is to turn your thoughts before you're finished listening. If you're here, happening to read the show notes, and you're not strength training, I made this with you in mind.

    But, there are three other women that I want to reach. Are you here? 

  • the woman who thinks yoga, Pilates, or walking are enough
  • the woman who thinks she has to do Crossfit or ...

    If you’re looking at exercise choices thinking you want cardio for fat loss, let’s break that down.

    The myth came from …

  • More calories burned during cardio than weight training
  • The calories in calories out myth
  • Why the myth still exists

  • Doctors still give the advice
  • Trainers still give this advice
  • The advice isn’t ALL wrong... but without this…

    The best nutrient is pleasure? According to my guest on this episode, it’s so. Once you understand the reason why, I think you’ll be hooked.

    During nutrition month it was a given that I host a dietitian. I found the perfectly unique expert. I absolutely loved this discussion with my guest. I think you’ll discover that our short list of questions winds us up in a discussion that isn’t just about nutrition.

    What is CoQ10, what's its function, and what other supplements could still be helpful in boosting immunity (or natural detox) now? 

    That's the topic of this episode with my friend and detox expert, Bridgit Danner. Inspired by a post she did in February, heart health month, I reached out to her. It dawned on me that though we all got serious about supplements a year ago, we've relaxed, many of us. Yet, we're not out ...

    Midlife weight gain occurs for many women during menopause and it’s compounding an already-present problem of weight gain that begins in your 30s (if you let it). But as this post will share, it’s not the 10lb problem it seems. It’s worse.

    In the aging process a gradual creep of weight is not what it seems. A weight gain of 10 lbs. per decade that is the average is really a 20 lb. body composition problem.

    What do I mean?
