I won’t keep you in suspense. Your biggest obstacle to fitness in menopause is stress.
I’m going to look at stress from all angles but spend the majority of this episode pointing to how you can counter the allostatic (all sources) stress load.
There’s stress from:
During the pandemic, each of them may be happening at greater frequency, with greater severity.
As a result of stress, your body puts out cortisol. Sometimes that works well. You need the energy to step up your game temporarily. But over time if it’s up there’s that nasty equal and opposite reaction that happens and you know what that feels like.
It’s exhaustion, “always tired,” weight gain, never able to relax, monkey mind that can’t shut off.
Too many women resort to:
Basically, ignoring the root cause and wanting the quick fix. Because YOU’RE VULNERABLE and every marketer knows it.
So.. know that is all a part of it. And I won’t leave you hanging if you want a fix, my team and I decided on the spot, spontaneously on Monday to bring back a Flipping50 favorite – the 28-Day Kickstart. I’m going to do it live with you in November.
If you’re stuck and nothing is working…
If you need the accountability of a program, and of a group and a coach…
If you are at a “I’m doing it but it’s not working” spot…
Here’s how it happens:
It starts the first week of November
You get materials the last Thursday of October
You get 4 coaching sessions with me – which I don’t do anymore. That’s a $500 value alone.

But today, right now… I want you to understand this ONE powerful thing.
You can start this TODAY and decrease your stress level!
Notice some overlap? Yes. Totally, these hormones are very related and similar activities support them all.
Also sounds like a list of good habits for menopause too.
Pay most attention to the things you can control.
Because that will help with the things you can’t:
Your biggest obstacle to fitness in menopause is the stress.
You can’t remove it without removing all the meaningful things and people in your life.
You can offset it.
Balance the scales. You’ll become more resilient, have a better immune system, and you’ll decrease the negative effect of stress: fat storage.
