I turned 40 years old last week and I have never felt happier or healthier in my life. If it wasn’t for a calendar, I wouldn’t believe my age because I don’t feel 4 decades young. I truly believe that you decide how old you are in your mind. It’s how you feel when you wake up in the morning, it’s your outlook on life, it’s a positive nature and most importantly, it’s how you take care of yourself.
I have been living a skinny healthy lifestyle since I turned 18 years old. I made the decision back then that I would do whatever it took to look and feel the best I could possibly be. I took an interest in cooking healthy foods and have always been looking for the next great thing in exercise to keep fit. So much has changed from the Jane Fonda days (yes I did her videos) and I have learned so much over the past 20+ years. It took some time, but I have found the most balanced weekly exercise schedule for me and I would love to share it with you. It works because it is a little bit of everything, stretching, sculpting, cardio and rest.
Moving the days around is ok, but consistently stretching and sculpting between cardio sessions is essential for muscle confusion and to keep it interesting. Exercise gets especially boring when you do the same sort of thing everyday. I will be sharing the actual workouts that I do with you over the next few weeks so stay tuned.
