Working Out For Your Age
Working out has changed so much over the decades! Tina reflects on how in the 80’s, aerobics and just moving pretty vigorously was so big! Now, Tina is in her early 50’s and she has started incorporating things like yoga and mobility exercises into her daily workouts. But, Tina says she should have started when she was in her 30’s and 40’s! You don’t need to go hard every day. In your 20’s you can get away with going hard daily with running and cardio. But when you hit your 30’s, you can actually lose muscle mass from going so hard in your 20’s! Strength training is so important. Start in your 30’s.
If you’re in your 3o’s, listen up! Do a mix of every kind of exercise. In your 30’s you have a pretty fast recovery time, but do remember to do weight training. In your 40’s, give yourself recovery time in between workouts. Nutrition is important too! Eat for your age! Make sure you are getting enough protein, because amino acids are a necessity for increasing muscle mass. Tina suggests go to a stadium, like a high school stadium and go up and down the bleacher stairs once a week!

Nourishing Our Mind, Body, and Soul This Holiday Season
The paradigm-shifting, well-researched message in Whole Person Integrative Eating is that food influences not only the physical dimensions of health and healing, but also your emotional, spiritual, and social well-being. Whole Person Integrative Eating is based upon the way we are meant to eat! The ancient food wisdom approach to eating is what Whole Person Integrative Eating is. Whole Person Integrative Eating is based on the original meaning of “diet” back 2500 years ago with Hippocrates. Bring the attention to your mouth while you are eating. Appreciate that your food has life giving powers! Deborah Keston is the person to read about when wanting to eat for your whole self!
