Every woman wants to feel beautiful. It is a mind-set. If you think you are beautiful and you act accordingly, others will believe it too. In other words, emotions are contagious. Of course, as we get older, our beauty regimen may require more time. Aging beautifully is more than that. We just need to get back to the basics. Get enough sleep. Many women sacrifice rest to get everything done in a day. However, no one looks or feels her best when she is tired. So, let it go. tomorrow is another day. Get some sleep and do not apologize. Savor your sleep time and wake up refreshed.
Remember this, you are what you eat. When you pass fifty, your metabolism slows down and continues to as you age. Controlling your calories becomes more important now. Eat more whole grains, fruits and vegetables. Get plenty of omega-3 fatty acids from foods like salmon, flaxseed or fish oil supplements. Omega-3 helps to keep your skin supple, your mind alert and your cardiovascular system healthy.
Growing older gracefully and beautifully means investing in the healthiest lifestyle possible in body, mind and spirit.

Set Specific Goals
Be specific by setting a measurable goal. If you want to define your abdominal, then make a goal to perform a certain number during your workout. You can then count out every repetition. Your goal could be "I will work on my abs three days per week and perform two sets of thirty each workout. " This goal is measurable. Write it out in a place where you are sure to see it everyday. This works and it has a way of holding us accountable.
Make it Realistic
Start out with a short term attainable goal. Instead of saying "I want to lose 30 pounds by the summer," simplify it to two pounds a week. Be realistic when you set goals. If you have been a coach potato for the last three years, just getting off the coach is a challenge. My advice is to get up and start walking. Walking is the easiest way to get started. Get a pedometer and set a goal for the amount of steps per day you will accomplish.
Just Do It!
If you truly want to achieve your fitness goals this year, believe in yourself. You have to want it! Don't give up when the scale doesn't show any weight loss. It happens. Don't be tempted when people offer you food and drinks that will add excess calories. This will happen. Don't say "I exercised last night for an hour so I deserve a treat." No you don't! Once you get into a pattern of eating healthy and exercising on a daily basis, then one cheat day should not sabotage your progress. Get back on track and do it right the rest of the week. Just do it.
