Healthy Enough Over 50 | What It Is

What is healthy enough? How would you define it for yourself? If you are able to, I highly encourage you to hit pause right now. Think about it. What’s your definition of “healthy enough?” OKAY, go. 

Are you back? I hope you did it. As simple as it may sound, it’s a deep question. Really. If you don’t know, after all, you can’t really go running toward a goal. 

Yet, a lot of us do. We stay in the habit, without actually knowing what we’re doing it for or where we want it to go. 

Knowing could change the decisions you make in those workouts. It could form the plan that actually changes things. 

And it could… Help you realize, girlfriend, you’re already there.

She helps women over 50 get moving and feel better even as the aches and pains of age start to creep in, all from the comfort of their own home. At 50 she learned that life should not be about punishing our bodies or starving ourselves it’s about accepting ourselves, learning to navigate the changes, and being healthy enough to do the things we love to do, To feel good, to feel satisfied, and to also be able to truly enjoy this later and better half of life.

In this episode, we’ll dive into not only recreating yourself in the second half but why and how she’s coined the term “healthy enough.”
