Menopause is a very challenging time for most women. From what I hear from my female client, it’s an experience that is nothing like anything that has happened before. There is no one size fits all solution to exercise related problems during menopause for the reason that each woman’s biology is different. Menopause is still not fully understood by many – a million and one changes are occurring in the female body during this time.

If you like crunch then you are going to love my crunchy Kale-Weed recipe. Yes, I know the name sounds odd but maybe it got your attention? This recipe is a great way to get your seaweed veggies into your diet. I like to use dulse and kelp. Believe it or not, because of the crunch my kids absolutely love eating the dulse and they prefer it over the kale. Seaweeds like Dulse are popular in places like Japan and China and they have high amounts of nutrition and therapeutic properties. In addition, dulse can help to heal poor digestive systems and can help cleanse the body of heavy metals by healing and enhancing the liver. Another bonus is that it also increases metabolism and aids in weight loss.
In this video Trainer Lauren of Storm Fitness hooks you up with an super easy breakfast option. It’s not only healthy but it can be eaten on the go and best of all – it takes no time at all to prepare.
Remember, eating healthy and taking care of ourselves doesn’t have to be costly or overly time consuming. It can be done. You just need to sit down and take the time to commit yourself to it.
You need to truly tell yourself that this is a lifestyle change for you. That you value your health and are worth putting yourself first on your list. Take the time to take care of yourself and those around you will prosper as well.
Lead by example -that is the true way.

I used to just run. I would run 5-6 days a week rain or shine. It didn’t matter if my legs were toast or if I was battling a nasty college cold. On days I didn’t run I would do P90x in my living room and irritate my neighbors below me as I hopped up and down for 80 minutes. I did this until my first serious injury.
