Staying healthy and look amazing past 40😉

Hi you all! I have always since I can remember been active in sports of some kind. I am truly happy for that as that has helped me in maintaining a good normal weight.

However growing up during the 70-80ies the food choices was not in my or anyone’s favor. I blame my constant battle with illnesses and eczema’s to milk and gluten. It was not until I turned 30 I would really starting to enjoy salads and good nutrition foods.

And with that I mean most plant based, not completely vegan however I could probably do that if I didn’t have to make sure my children got feed properly😊

Becoming older I have noticed that my body is more sensitive then it use to be, and it has all to do with, what I eat. I have tried going Keto with meat and dairy and even if the diet itself works I do not like the way my body feels. I fell stuffed and not fresh at all. My skin needs tons of leafy greens, good avocados, healthy and fresh organic greens.

The good part of Keto is that you don’t feel hungry 😋, so I am made a change and made it more green to fill it with “green” fats instead. With green fats means nuts and avocados and different oils.

Within a week of quitting sugar and restrict my diet to a more healthy Keto I can clearly see a difference in my skin and body. I look a lot healthier, as I had been on mountain hike.

So to give my body the best tools for aging the best way possible I will stay away from sugar, eat during a 6 hrs eating window, enjoy red wine once in awhile and stock up on those must to have vitamins- C, Zink, Magnesium, and different sets av Vitamin B’s, all good for your cells turnover which will give your skin a glow.

Staying body and mind sharp through menopause

I know it´s a topic that have mixed feelings, some of us dread the menopause approach some of us enjoy it. Yes, you are getting older, and it marks the end of youth and fertility in a way. However it also mark the beginning of something new- a stronger better you!

Hormons – or the lack of them or actually the change of the hormonal mix, will leave you with a different mind and body. Make sure to eat optimal eat natural not precessed food. Sleep for example, always have had an issue with sleep, never ever was a sound sleeper. I sleep for 6,5 to 7 hrs tops, that is for me a good night sleep. But most of all the biggest change for me has been my mind. I have become allot stronger mentally. I do have periods where I have felt a bit lost and not really recognize myself.

It´s time to take care of body and mind and most of all create a balance between them. Stop pressuring yourself to much and let go of negative influences. I seldom listen to the news and by choice keep an positive attitude. Not always easy, I feel a lot of people have a negative attitude form the get go, constantly thinking negative thought, regardless were they are in life.

I have set a couple of goals to maintain and create a better future or a future that I want. I going in to a new phase in life. First of is your mind, are you happy with your life? Is this were you picture your self 10 years ago? If not, what is strategy for removing yourself from your current state?

Second your body, I am currently working on my body, nutrition and exercise, to be able to reach my goal I need to change, change my way of thinking, and that is the hardest part, old habits die hard, especially thinking habits.
