5 Simple Steps to Staying Fit and Healthy at Any age!

As a fitness and nutrition coach, I have the opportunity to work with people all over the world on their goals. It’s a known fact that as we age, stuff happens that we don’t expect and aren’t the norm that we have experienced in our lives. This oftentimes requires more decisive action with a plan and appropriate accountability to make sure we get back on track.

Here 5 Simple things you can do starting right now to take charge of you body and how it looks, feels and performs!

  1. Cut out the Crap Food!– No more processed stuff. Shop around the perimeter of the grocery store, eat out of the fridge, not the pantry.

  1. Cut out bread, pasta, rice, cookies, cakes, bagels, oatmeal any grains for 30 days and see how much better your pants fit. You may even get back into your skinny jeans with just this one tip! Oh yeah, make sure you are eating tons of green, leafy veggies, and veggies of all kinds! They fill you up, keep your blood sugar in control, keep you regular and help detox all the processed food out of your body!

  1. Make food ahead of time– If you know you are an emotional eater, a last-minute eater, a fast food junkie, a low-blood-sugar eater, the best way to take charge of that is to have healthy  meals and snacks stocked up in your refrigerator and freezer. I keep 1-2 already made salads in my frige all the time. I just add meat, some nuts or avo, a little vinegar, lemon juice and olive oil and I have a satisfying meal that keep me out of the danger zone.

  1. Get moving. This is only part of the battle, but if when tempted to eat something that is destructive, opt to take the dog for a walk or play a game of handball with your kids. And for crying out loud, turn off that TV in the afternoon! That is just an invitation to snack

  1. Keep a journal of your food, sleep, exercise and mood. This way, you cannot wiggle your way around the truth of your situation. If the true picture is not exposed, there is no way to improve it. Pay special attention to triggers. Write them down along with whether you gave in or your were able to avoid the usual results


*Get a buddy. It seems over used but the truth is that is works. Decide what you really want, then tell someone. That person better have a spine because you will be accountable to them for your choices. Their job is not to judge but rather to remind you of what you said you so desperately wanted! Try Myfitnesspal.com, it really works if you are consistent and it’s a great place to stay accountable to your friends.

* Drink More Water– It’s amazing what water can do your body. Drinking clean, filtered water is essential to losing weight.  I recommend a minimum of 120 oz a day. Sounds like a lot and it is but I use these neat 2.2 liter water bottles.

Will this solve every problem you have ever had with your weight and body composition, heck no! But, you did not get to where you are now overnight. There are many things to undo and correct, including how you think!

So taking small steps over and over is a great start and teaches you to believe in the possibilites again even if you really don’t have any hope left. There is hope, there is always hope. Do the steps for at least 30 days and see where you land. I would love to know how you are doing with the steps and what has worked and what has not. I can be reached at www.annieberryhill.com
