Food And Fitness

Every year that I inch a little closer to the big 50, I realize my body is in a constant state of change.  My nutrition, skin care, hair care, and sleep needs change.  If I want to maintain status quo, (high energy levels to dance all night, great moods to handle life’s curve balls, beautiful glowing skin, etc…, I must sing a different song…. “..Change, change, chaaaange…..”

The changes in your body quickly creep up on you until one day you realize that certain things just aren’t working the say anymore.  This realization starts the ball rolling to finding a new– well everything!  Better quality fabrics in clothing, improved moisturizers for the skin, lavish conditioners to thicken the hair, better quality bras, and so on….

The good news is that if we chose to acknowledge the aging process. Oh wow!  I can’t believe I’m writing about the aging process….  It comes quick, that’s all I can say.

Anyhow, as I was saying, instead of resisting the process, we ought to embrace the changes and work to figure out what will work best for our body.

That said, Previously, I mentioned that I track my food intake using the free app LIVESTRONG.   Since I subscribe to the page, I receive informative emails related to nutrition and fitness.

Below is a chart included in, Eating, Exercise & Health Tips For 30s, 40s, and 50s.  I love this chart. It provides a great snapshot of common changes that begin to occur at various milestones.  The chart below is for 40 year olds, but if you scroll through, there are charts for other ages.

The chart is worth a look-over because it’s packed with valuable information that can help you get on track.  Of course no two human bodies are alike.  So before implementing any new nutrition or fitness regimen, you should always consult with your doctor first.

I hope you find this information useful.

Enjoy the day!
