This is a quick overview of the five steps I started with when I began my wellness journey.
The one thing I did not have was an accountability buddy. Thats why I am launching this program to build a community of like minded women to uplift each other as we move, learn and grow into our best selves.
Over 50 is just the second act there is so much more to come!
Look for an 8 week group training group and an accountability partner program to start soon.

Accountability according to the Webster Dictionary is:
“the quality or state of being accountable; an obligation or willingness to accept responsibility for one’s actions.” …
I will date myself here by asking how many of you remember looking up how to spell a word by first locating the big Red Webster dictionary, then sounding out the word and scanning those thin pages until you find it?
Anyway, the reason I had to chose this as todays topic is to challenge you on how accountable you are being with your fitness goals. Everything 2020 aside, this is the time of year when excuses for poor diet, skipping workouts and lack of portion control can creep in.
So open that accountability app on your phone or challenge a friend online, pick something small to start, more green veggies in the diet, one more hour off screens before bedtime, and a few more minutes stretching and working up a sweat. This way when you ring in 2021 you have a healthy balance in your wellness account.

In marathon terms, we are at mile 20 with regard to the Covid pandemic. You’re tired and ready for it to be over. But you’re not a quitter; you know that if you stick to the original plan you’ll get through this. The finish line is ahead…. don’t give up!
I hope that we all can feel this happy at 12:01am on Jan. 1

Probably not the best week to start any kind of wellness routine. I did pretty well on everything except the sleeping part. My maryruth organics sleep could not even help ! It have been very hard to turn off social media two hours before bedtime. So the good thing is that you can always start over. In case you haven’t read all these tips before, here are some good ones to help you get a restful nights sleep.
- Stick to a sleep schedule. Set aside no more than eight hours for sleep.
- Pay attention to what you eat and drink. Don’t go to bed hungry or stuffed.
- Create a restful environment. Create a room that’s ideal for sleeping. Temp shoud be between 60- 65 digress
- Limit daytime naps. One of those WFH habits that took over for the two hour boozy lunches.
- Include physical activity in your daily routine. 30 minutes is the sweet spot
- Manage worries. Lots of deep breathes and meditation.
