"I am thankful to be part of the "Platinum Club"...aka men and women over the age of 50 that are taking care of their bodies.

Exercise has to be about more than just burning calories, especially once you are over 50"..excerpt from Physique After 50"

About Me:

I am continuing on this health & fitness mission which is actually a lifestyle choice now. My username continues to serve as a daily reminder, too. I exercise consistenly and eat foods I enjoy with an eye on its nutritional value. I've never been one to fall for those new diet trends/fads. I'm not looking for temporary and quick fixes. Slow and permanent changes are the way to go...my personal opinion.

The nutritional side is very important especially with a family history of the chronic diseases (hypertension, heart disease, diabetes type 2).

My initial form of exercise used to be walking several years ago which did help me with weight loss but did absolutely nothing to re-shape my body nor did it make me strong (build muscle). Since then I have gained more knowledge in doing what really works for my body….resistance training 3-4 days each week, plus, walking or other non-resistance training activities other days of the week to create a balance.

My resistance training uses mostly compound exercises . Compound exercises give me the most bang for time spent exercising! To change up things I will use different training methods (set/rep schemes).

If you are a 60+ woman like me, one benefit of resistance training is that it will greatly enhance bone density and help build/maintain lean muscle. We need our muscles as we age to continue doing functional daily duties.

I’ve always been an “at home exerciser” and that is not going to change. Exercising at home leaves me NO room for excuses…lol. You do need the discipline to do so and not just look for motivation to carry you every day….just my opinion based on experience.

My Goals:
Pamela's 2019 Goals

1. Continue with fitness training using diiferent methods as prescribed by Coach Scott Abel's "approach" and particularly for age group 50+.

2. Use the Mediterranean Diet way of eating which appears to be very sustainable.

3. Less focus on counting calories, macros, and numbers on the weight scale.

4. Keep a close eye on Blood Glucose readings since in the Pre-diabetes category.

4. Continue to support at least one person with their health/fitness goals weekly.


My Program:
1. Current training is P90X which I started on July 22, 2019. Resistance Training is a priority for me. This time around I am using resistance tubes/loop bands and body weight instead of Dumbbells. The tubes/bands are very joint friendly and lessen injuires.
