<![CDATA[How To Remove Drama From Your Life At Any Age]]> Wed, 09 May 2018 15:51:25 GMT 21:16 5aedd34ae866cccc289b59ee no full 7 Remove Drama In Your Life To Age More Youthfully


Back in Episode 3, Five Things I Learned Turning 50, one of the things I learned was I didn’t have time for drama. Today I’m diving a little deeper into this subject and sharing Five Ways To Remove Drama From Your Life.


Don’t get me wrong, I love drama, as long as it’s in a movie I’m watching. In my personal life, I try to stay as far away from it I can. A while back I created the graphic below in response to all the people on Facebook posting a LOT of drama on Facebook.


I used to feel like drama was following me and guess what? I used to be one of the people saying to myself things like “why does this keep happening to me”, “there always seems to be a black cloud over my head”, and many other similar sentences. I can tell you, I was not always a lot of fun to be around; I was miserable and tired of things “happening” TO me. I don’t remember the exact date, but I remember the day I told Mark, “I’m done with the pity party, I’m going to be grateful for what I have, I’m no longer focusing on what I don’t”. What do you think happened? You guessed it! Drama quit “following me”. While making that one decision was a pivotal point in my life, drama is all around in the world and keeping drama out of my life is a daily practice. Below are five steps I take to help keep drama out of my life. More...

Last week I shared the first in a non-consecutive series…What My Sled Dogs Taught Me. Volume 1 of what they taught me is How To Live a Life of Passion at Any Age. If you haven’t had a chance to catch Episode 5, I urge you to do so after listening to this week’s show. (You might want to grab a pen and paper to take notes!).


This week I had the pleasure of interviewing the Biggest and Baddest Santa on Earth, Albie Mushaney. Albie is a 45 – year – old father of five, who at the age of 42, diabetic and weighing 400 lbs. decided to get himself back in the gym and get himself healthy if he was going to see his newborn and all his sons grow up. He’s as jolly as any Santa you’ve ever met and three years later, at the age of 45, he’s a World’s Strongest Man Strongman competitor, and the healthier now than he was in his 30’s.


Get ready to learn what Big, Bad Santa eats, how he trains, why he thinks there is an upswing of middle-agers and beyond doing so well in the weightlifting arenas and his take on what aging youthful means.

This week I had the pleasure of interviewing triathlon competitor Dawn Bartolini, who just five short years ago was 115 lbs. heavier!


Who Was Dawn Bartolini?

When she was younger, Dawn says always felt she was bigger than she was due to limiting beliefs. When she looks back at pictures now, she realizes she was really an average size. However, after her two kids were born, she started gaining weight by putting everyone else ahead of herself trying to be the Supermom and Superwife. As a result, the weight kept escalating, going from a size 12 to 14, 14 to 16…all the way to her largest, a size 22 weighing more than 250 lbs.!

Even when she was at her heaviest, she says she always felt confident “from the neck up”. She has beautiful blue eyes (check out those baby blues in the photos!), but she never owned a full-view mirror, so she had a panic attack every time she had to go try on new clothes. She was also always worried her clothes were going to be too long because 5’4” and 250 lbs. she was as round as she is tall. She now is an athletic size 8, with arms that need a conceal and carry permit! Hashtag Gun Show!

What Was The Catalyst To Make The Change?

With having to wear larger sizes, her clothes options were “much older” and she was feeling unable to imagine what retirement would look like. But then in January of 2013 at a parent teacher conference, she was sitting outside her son’s classroom when her son snapped and posted a photo of her on Snapchat. More...

<![CDATA[Introducing Aging Youthful]]> Wed, 11 Apr 2018 08:01:00 GMT 25:49 5ac14cf40c6d96c503963cd0 yes full 1 Why A Podcast?

There’s a few reasons I chose to start a podcast. First, not everyone has time to sit down and read a blog. I know my spare time is limited with working more than full-time, training for my next Strongman competition, working with my lifestyle coaching clients and writing this and other articles as a guest blogger. I listen to at least one podcast a day, especially on weekdays. I’ll listen in the shower and while I’m getting ready in the morning and I even sometimes listen while I’m working out. I love working out to music, but an inspiring speaker on a podcast is just as uplifting as Bon Jovi!


Another reason I am starting The Aging Youthful podcast is to reach more people with our message and I can easily do it with today’s technology. Each podcast episode will also become a blog post and I’m also toying with the idea of videoing the episodes (or selected ones) and uploading to YouTube. While I spend most of my social media time on Facebook and Instagram, I know there are other ways to reach people.


Is There Difference Between Aging Gracefully and Aging Youthfully?

Absolutely and not really. (Nothing like covering my bases, right?). To me the phrase aging gracefully means accepting getting older, allowing the aging process to happen and accepting the theory your body is getting slower and weaker and it stops you from continuing to do things you used to because you’re “getting older”.


The difference between aging gracefully and aging youthfully, as mentioned in the intro above, at aging youthful we don’t let our age stop us from getting out there and doing what we love…we keep doing it DESPITE our age. We DO accept the fact we’ve had a handful (or more) decades of birthdays, respect it but just may have to do things a little differently than we did in our 20’s. BUT we don’t let us stop us. See the difference?


In Depth Interviews of People Living The Aging Youthful Lifestyle

The most fun and exciting part of doing a podcast over a blog post is the live interviews! While a written Q & A is great, but hearing the voice of the person being interviewed, their excitement and their humor is something that just doesn’t come through with the written word. I’ve recorded my first interview of someone who inspires me every day to keep up with my aging youthful lifestyle. This lady got herself back into the gym at the young age of 65 and competed in her first bikini competition at the age of 68. YES, you read that right; SIXTY-EIGHT and now at age 70, she’s showing no signs of slowing down.


I have a few more people lined up and I am excited to have them on the show. If you know of someone who is not letting their age define them, and are killing it at life despite their age, I’d love to meet them. Send me a link to their social media profile so I can send them a message to see if they want to be on the show!


I’d love to hear from you, our reader and potential listener…what are the things you struggle with as you have come into your 50’s and beyond? In addition to people who are living the aging youthful lifestyle, I’m on the lookout for other people to interview who are doing incredible things in health and wellness for those of us who’ve had a few (OK a lot) of rides around the sun. It can be someone in healthcare, fitness, skin care…you name it. Again, send me a DM on social media, shoot me an email or comment below with their name and how I can reach them.


Thank You Emily Anderson For Our Music!

I want to give a HUGE moment of gratitude to musician Emily Anderson for allowing me to use the instrumentals from her song Lost and Found. When I first heard the song, I fell in love with the funky, upbeat strings. I first met Emily when she came to my fitness classes, and loved the torture. She was so crazy, she even requested burpees! lol This past winter, Emily left her secure day job and began following HER passion for music full-time. I wish her great success and someday I know I will be able to say "I knew her when.". Thanks again Emily, I know my listeners are going to love your music as much as I do!



Thanks for tuning in! Be sure to share this episode with anyone who could use the message we are sharing. I'd also appreciate it if you would take a couple of moments to leave a heartfelt review to help us fulfill our mission of creating a tribe of middle - agers and above giving the youngsters a run for their money! See you next week and in the meantime, age youthfully my friends!
