"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 consistently and eat full plant-based as an approach to preventing and reversing chronic illness. 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 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 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 2021 Goals

1. Continue with fitness training using different methods as prescribed by Coach Scott Abel's "approach" and particularly for age group 50+. I use Pahla B's youtube channel because she also caters to women over 50.

2. Continue eating Full Plant-Based which is sustainable and works for my health and wellbeing.

3. I use food and fitness trackers (currently using LoseIt).

4. Keep an eye on Blood Glucose readings which greatly improved before the end of 2019. I am not on any medication and controlling blood glucose levels nutritionally.

5. Continue to support at least one person with their health/fitness goals weekly. I co-admin a private closed group on FaceBook.

My Program:
1. Current training Pahla B's June 7-Day Challenge. Her workouts are moderate intensity with low impact cardio, strength, core and balance. I am doing this with a few family members and friends for June 2021. You can find this routine on her YouTube channel. She has over 900 videos!

Personal Information:
Loving the contemporary rural life in a town located in southeast Texas. I am originally from north central Texas where most of my family still resides. Married 30+ years, three adult children, four grandsons.
