#1 Thinking you can't

So many people believe once they hit a certain age, fitness is out the window. Believing you have no control over your health and fitness level is mistake number one. Time to change that mindset!

#2 Not eating enough

 

Your metabolism can’t work if it’s not being fueled. Simple as that. Eat breakfast within half an hour of waking up to kick your metabolism off. Try to eat every 2-3 hours. Your body will run best if you get in 5 small "meals" a day. 

#3 Not eating the right stuff

 
Just because it appears healthy, doesn’t mean it is. Is it heavily processed? Does it work well with your body type and genetic makeup? Maybe your friend does great on a protein heavy diet but you gain weight if you eat too much animal protein. Grains are great for you but your partner just can't do them. One size does not fit all. Make sure you know what your body needs.
#4 Not listening to your body

 

That brings us to number 4. Too many people don’t pay attention to how they react to certain foods. Try keeping a journal. Take note of the foods that give you energy or help you sleep better at night. What foods drain you or make you achy? Learn to listen. Your body knows what it needs.

#5 Not drinking enough water

 

Did you know you should drink half your body weight in oz every day? Try flavoring with fruit or essential oils if you don’t like plain water. And while you're at it, cut out the sugary drinks. Especially sodas. Those things are all kinds of bad for you!

*It's crucial you use the right oils. Get with me for guidance.
#6 Not taking supplements

 

Let’s face it, the older we get the more help we need. Our bodies accumulate miles as we age. Make sure you’re giving your body the help it needs to stay healthy and keep going strong.
