"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 plant-based foods 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 2-4 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. Use the Plant-Based Approach way of eating which appears to be very sustainable.

3. I use food and fitness trackers.

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.

My Program:
1. Current training Coach Scott Abel's 'at-home-version' of the Hardgainer Solution Program (HGS3.0). It can be used 3-5 days per week. Resistance training using resistance bands, dumbbells and body weight. There are a total of 31 different workouts in this program. I started it on January 2, 2021. Training is approximately 21 weeks. It uses biplexes and I workout every other day.

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.

Other Information:
Originally joined this site under the name of MYLIFESTYLE in Jun3 2006.

Favorite past-time: since the Pandemic of 2020 hit it has been impossible to spend quality time with family and friends so I stick with lawn and gardening, books, movies, and some social media sites.
