In this episode of the Therapy Show, I share my approach to staying healthy and fit as a busy mom in her 50s. I discuss the importance of lifting weights to preserve muscle mass, which decreases as we age. I also stress the importance of eating healthy and meal prepping, focusing on a higher protein diet and unprocessed carbs like starchy vegetables, rice, and quinoa. I recommend prioritizing vegetables and fruits, and buying organic when possible. I also advise against overdoing exercise and encourage listeners to prepare for menopause by controlling stress, getting enough sleep, and exercising regularly.

I share resources like Mind Pump Media, Fighterdiet, Bret Contreras and Katie Sonier for weightlifting programs and suggest that an efficient weightlifting workout can be done in 35-40 minutes. I also share my meal prep routine, which includes using a crockpot to make a variety of meals with chicken, ground beef, and brisket, and involving family members in the process to make it a fun and enjoyable experience. 

I emphasize the importance of consistency in exercise and eating healthy when you want optimal and vibrant health, at any age. I encourage listeners to make a commitment to themselves to eat healthy and exercise regularly, and to tap into their motivation for change. Remember, change takes time, patience, and consistency, but it is definitely possible.
