Being fit after 40 is never a coincidence. Aging is cruel and fitness beyond 40 is an uphill battle. It’s the joints, the hormones, the skin, the bladder, and million of other old-womanly things that get in the way.
But.. as I’ve proven it to myself, any woman can surprise herself when enough motivation is at stake.
I am not an athlete, or anything close to aspiring to that.
I just want to have a nice looking, functional body that does not disappoint.
The body that does not limp while on-route to work, ache in the morning, pee at night, and the body that cries when getting squeezed in size 8 pants.
When I started I was close to 150 lb. I don’t know how it happened. I think it was stress, or starches. Either one of the two. Maybe even both. Doesn’t matter. What matters is what I did to get back to 120 lb while feeling fabulous.
Getting fit after 40 is not the same as losing weight
Every woman’s goal is look good. We aim to lose weight, because we think that weight loss and good-looking body goes together.
That may be true when we are in our 20s, but as we age, things change. Skin elasticity, muscle tone, and joint function diminish over time. And while going on low calorie diet at 25-years of age may give incredibly pleasing results, that same diet can result in gaunt look, wrinkled skin, and malnourished appearance after 40.
Get that in your head, girl: slim body and fit body after 40 are completely different.
Here is one rule for aging women: slim is out, fit is in.
