I gotta tell it to you straight. Nothing's changing, if nothing's changing.
If you are a woman over 40 who has been struggling with energy and stubborn weight for any length of time you understand that something you are doing (or not doing) is not working.
The problem is you are bombarded by all sorts of conflicting information about what to do and it's so overwhelming, you might be frozen in inaction.
Here are some simple tips:
Low energy is likely being caused by hormone imbalance & chronic stress. A simple way to pick yourself up is to balance your blood sugar with is crucial for hormone balance:
Sis, there is no such thing as becoming "toned." What you think is toned is muscle and you aren't going to get it with hours of cardio or lifting 3-5 pound weights day in and day out.

It's not enough
The scale didn't move though.
It won't last anyway
That can't be right--it must be a mistake.
I used to do this and it was the reason why I would throw all my good intentions out the window, go off the rails with my food, then feel like an absolute pile of poo and "start over Monday."
The reason I ask is it happened to my client Dawn. After 12 weeks she has lost 4 inches off her waist and 2.5 off her hips. Her stomach feels less bloated every day and clothes are fitting different.
But when she sent me her measurements she was doubting herself. Like she can't believe that it was right.
She told me she couldn't believe that her hard work was paying off.
Many women believe the lies their brain tells them and go back to old habits. It's easy to fall into this trap if you don't have a coach helping...
My son Ian’s birth was something I don’t like to remember.
After having difficulty getting pregnant, my pregnancy was normal until 34 weeks, when I was suddenly hospitalized after being diagnosed with preeclampsia. My son Ian was born six days later by emergency c-section, both of us almost losing our life in the process.
I always questioned why I developed preeclampsia and never received a logical explanation until about nine months ago when I tested positive for two heterozygous strains of the MTHFR gene mutation.

As women over 40, we are battling a slowing metabolism, hormonal imbalances and stress from having too much to do and not enough time to do it. Add in sitting all day and we increase our risk for obesity, increased blood pressure, high blood sugar, excess body fat around the waist and abnormal cholesterol levels (Laskowski, E. 2018).
However, there are ways to avoid developing chronic diseases from a sedentary lifestyle. Here are 5 tricks to lose fat over 40 when you sit all day:
When you are over 40, the worst thing you can do is ignore the role your hormones play in how you look, think and feel.
But I get it, you certainly don’t receive training in school on the role your hormones play in menstruation, having children and your actual quality of life.
If you are experiencing symptoms such as unexplained weight gain, insomnia, anxiety or moodiness, we are told to eat less, exercise more and given a prescription.
But let me ask you this— if you were experiencing a water leak in your home, would your solution be to put a bucket under it and forget about it? Or even live in a house that is flooded?
So why on earth would ignoring bodily functions that control the way you look, think and feel be a solution— especially if you are dealing with all sorts of unpleasant symptoms?
If you don’t get educated on your hormones and what changes your body goes through in your 40’s and 50’s, well, you can...

I have experimented with several shredded chicken recipes in my slow cooker and this by far is the easiest. This slow cooker green chile shredded chicken is a favorite of both my husband and kids. It is so versatile, you can eat it in a burrito bowl, burrito, tacos, on a salad or just plain with a scoop of guacamole! There are just 6 ingredients and the prep time literally takes 10 minutes, tops.
I used bone in half chicken breasts. I have found that this cut of chicken is by far the most inexpensive and because it’s bone in and skin on, turns out really tender and moist in the slow cooker. The key to super flavorful and tender chicken is marinating it the night before. I love these McCormick marinade packets—we always have them on hand. They are a must for grilling!
I mix the marinade directly in an extra large Ziploc bag. I throw the marinade packet, the juice of two limes, 2 TBSP...
