Fit and Fabulous Over Forty

 Hi Everyone,

Hope you're all enjoying this fine spring weather! I'm announcing the launch of my Facebook page, Fit and Fabulous Over Forty. You will find there are quite a few entries, as the page was in it's experimental phase. You can find the page here.

We all know with age comes extra baggage (as in body fat) that we just don't want. Before we know it, we're engaged in extreme dieting and / or stringent exercise programs. You know where that can lead you, right? Fitness burnout! Very few programs work and I'm here to share which programs create results, based on what I have accomplished!

The photos below are my before and after photos. I'm still in the process of building muscle and dropping another twenty five pounds of body fat, so this photo will be updated shortly. Right now, I am enjoying my nutrition program and have enough energy to go to the gym.

Is Your Fitness App Hurting Your Progress?

Fitness apps are great, but they are only as good as the information you enter into them. Wrong info can quickly send you down the wrong path.

Biggest Fat Loss Mistakes While Cutting

Here is a great video about the biggest mistakes people make when trying to lose fat and gain muscle.


Pass The Splenda Please? NOT!

Okay, I know I sound like the food police, lately. Last week warning about the effects of margarine and this week artificial sweeteners. For the most part only Sweet & Low and Equal got the bad press, but Splenda is equally as bad for you.

Generally, "substitutes" for real foods are no substitute at all. Foods made in a lab are never good for you. Splenda will not only cause you to keep the weight on, it's toxic. So next time you're out for coffee with friends, do not pass the Spenda!
