My Book Is Finished!

I finished it!  A labor-of-love for all of you.  I have been working to distill down all I know about calming our bodies down and supporting our natural healing processes.  It is done!  My first book:  “Sexy, Lean and Strong After 50! — How I went from Fat, Depressed and Divorced to the Best Shape of My Life, and How You Can Too!”  It will be available on Amazon Kindle for download December 7, 2015.

I am sharing my concept of the Mad-Body Syndrome that puts you on your Mad-Body Mountain, and how it takes more than crash-diets or hours at the gym to get back to Sexy, Lean and Strong Valley.  Those of us of a certain age (mine is 63….) have to do a bit more soul-searching and self-analysis to get to the core reasons we are on the mountain in the first place.  My journey has lasted for over fourteen years and taken me through some amazing discoveries.

The first amazing discovery was that life does not end at divorce.  Life does not end when your only son dies suddenly or when you lose your home and livelihood.  Life does not end when your only daughter refuses to speak to you and your husband, lover and best friend of over thirty years cuts you off from all you know and love.  Life does not end when you are fat, depressed and want to die.  Life begins again and it is all about saying Yes! to getting off the mountain and reclaiming your vitality and energy.   Life is there for the taking and I want everyone to have it all!  Health, love, sex, energy and a joie-de-vivre, at Any Age, but, especially after 50!

My life began anew at 51, when all hell broke loose and all I had lived for and built was torn away from me.  Here is an excerpt from the book:

“Living alone for the first time in almost my entire life, at 51, was gut-wrenching.  I would try to find ways to calm myself and get to sleep.  I tried to eat but the though of food made me nauseous.  I could not even smell it…..Finally I was learning to take care of myself….I was trying to keep my ranch going, learning to date for the first time in over thirty years, selling the family home, and running my nutrition products business.  All at the same time, plus trying unsuccessfully to re-connect and build a relationship with my daughter.”

As I was able to turn my life around, reclaim my health and energy, and live with total happiness and purpose, so can you.  Here is another piece I want to share:  “Getting off the mountain successfully requires really understanding who you are, what you want to be, do, and have, and what it will take to make this happen…..To discover your path will mean some real digging.  It is buried deep inside you and we have to draw it out.  You are going to go on a self-discovery journey, which will ultimately tell you how to get off the mountain.”

I hope this book helps others who are going through their own hell to discover a way off the mountain.  I am committed to helping everyone who asks.  I am here for you.

Be Well and Happy Thanksgiving, Everyone!  Watch here for the final book announcement!

WHAT I LEARNED AT SCHOOL

Seated brownI just completed the full year at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, and am now a Certified Integrative Health Coach! It was an amazing year, full of some real eye-opening information about our world, the state of our food supply, how toxic we really are, and also about all the ways to protect our health and live our best life, every day. I am so glad I decided to do this. It has changed the way I view my body and mind, and how I nurture them. I was already very health-conscious, with over fourteen years in the wellness industry and multiple certifications in nutrition and fitness, but this is so much more. This is about making a daily commitment to be mindful of how I am thinking, acting and what I am eating and drinking, as it all impacts my health.

We were taught all the reasons a body gets sick and overweight, and the prevailing dietary theories (100+ of them!). We were taught how to evaluate nutrition claims, what the chemical reactions are when we eat and drink chemical additives, GMO-laden foods, and artificial preservatives and sugars. We were taught the value of pure, fresh, organic food, as close to the natural state as possible. We were taught the dangers of the over-processed and low-nutrient “food-substitutes” we have been eating. I was able to apply the knowledge daily with clients and family and help them to make the right choices. I saw immediate results in terms of increased energy and better performance in academics, work and athletics.

I have developed several new programs as a result of the training. I am now writing a book, “Sexy, Lean and Strong at Any Age!” My goal is to share this information with as many as possible, to help others to avoid much of what I experienced in my 40s and 50s, when I was chemically-imbalanced due to stress, bad diet, hormonal-fluctuations and could not cope with a volatile family environment. My hope is to help others to stay balanced so they can deal with the stresses that come their way, without being consumed by the emotions and losing the ability to find resolution. I lost a family and marriage largely due to the chemical imbalances, which triggered rages and depression.   I lost my health for a while, but it is back!

I love who I am today, what I have learned and what I am going to share! Thank you for being on this journey with me.
