If you are in midlife, likely you've walked past the mirror, or tried on a pair of pants, and wondered what in the world? Sister, you're not alone! We are talking about what is going on and how we can faithfully and appropriately respond to how our bodies (ahem...tummies) are changing.
We are bringing Alisa Keeton, Founder of Revelation Wellness, to the conversation. She knows what it is to be fit and as a woman in midlife, she also knows how bodies can change quickly. We cover three areas of change unique to this stage of life: hormones, eating, and movement. (Spoiler: we tend to eat more indulgently and move less these years.)
But there is hope! God has created us to live ALL of our years fruitfully. We can use resistance training, walking, and mindfulness to strengthen our changing bodies while giving them what they need for today. You will both learn and be inspired by this episode (remember the part practical, part inspirational we're always talking about?)
Hear how you too can love your changing body during midlife.
"The righteous will flourish like a palm tree,
they will grow like a cedar of Lebanon;
planted in the house of the Lord,
they will flourish in the courts of our God.
They will still bear fruit in old age,
they will stay fresh and green,
proclaiming, “The Lord is upright;
he is my Rock, and there is no wickedness in him.” -Psalm 92:12-15
“To really be connected in your body means to be fully present without judgment.”
"83% of women in midlife say that their body image in midlife has to do with their midsection."
"Stop working so hard."
“God has more for us, but it’s new and everyone hates new.”
“Midlife is the time to stop thinking about what you’re eating and ask yourself why you’re eating.”
