Actionable Steps:

  1. Lift weights – get stronger – resistance train. Incorporate strength training into your routine. It increases metabolism and helps strengthen bones. Resistance training can be your body weight – or things you have at home – a suitcase filled with books – your kids on your shoulders as you do squats, or on your back for pushups.
  2. Eat real food. Avoid boxed, canned, and other processed foods. Eat food as close to its natural state as possible.
  3. Stop thinking about how you want to look and focus on how you want to feel – today, next month, or when holding your grandchild in the future.
