One of my friends said the other day, “I don’t want people to know that I am in menopause. They treat you differently and secretly roll their eyes. You know the one, it just makes you feel bad about yourself.”Menopause And The StigmaThis surprised me. I look at menopause as a natural occurrence in life, just like starting your period when you begin puberty. But now that I think about it…menopause is a whole different beast.

Clear the Clutter in your life and get clarity on what you want right now. Menopause can drag you down, but it does not have to be that way! That's why I created the free Clear the Clutter Worksheet for women just like you.

My client asked me the other day:"I am running on the treadmill and I am sweating a little. You know that I am not a runner, but I am pushing pretty hard for my fitness level. I don't drink much water because I don't feel thirsty. But then about 20 minutes after my workout I start sweating like crazy! This can't be a hot flash right? What’s going on?"

I love my Super Shake and you wanna know why?It's healthy, nutritious, satisfying and it tastes GREAT! I have tried other products that are already done for you, all you have to do is add water or milk. They tasted chalky or smelled strange.

L.I.F.E - all you have to do is show up
L - live in the moment
I - invest in interesting things
F - focus on yourself
E - enjoy the things you do
At times life seems to get in the way. Menopause sure gets in my way sometimes.

Hot of the press!!! I knew it! Late last year, the North American Menopause Society published a position statement that did not recommend exercise to offset symptoms of menopause because the research was “insufficient or inconclusive.”
