Hi Ladies! Exercise for women over 50 is a big topic right now. That tells me that we are not going to sit around and pout about our sagging this and our wrinkled that, but we’re going to do whatever we can to thrive in the golden years!

Welcome to the exercises page! I had every intention of making this page a transformation of my bad self! I had visions of doing befores and afters of all my body parts as I exercised my way to a gorgeous specimen of an over 50 woman. Well…. not happening right now.


exercise for women over 50

You may have read that I am a letter carrier with the USPS and getting ready to retire September 2nd of this year (2016). I walk 7.3 miles a day and climb 62 staircases. I’m going to be 60 this August, and quite frankly, I’m POOPED when I get home. I’m not ready to get all my parts in shape! I’m in decent shape, but many parts of me need work.

She’s 57 and IN SUCH GOOD SHAPE… an example to all of us for sure. Her name is Linda Melone and her website is Ageless After 50!

    Hi Robin, I have always had a significant weight problem. I weighed a whopping 181 at the age of 10. I have struggled all my life to get and keep the weight off. I started walking, (not willingly mind you). A lot of people think that they are going to just wake up one morning and be overjoyed with starting their new program. NOT SO! It is a struggle and a battle each morning to put on those sneakers you bought to exercise in, that are still in the box. HAHA. My experience with walking was sheer torture until about the 8th week. Somehow your metabolism kicks in. Now you can’t wait to walk, and if you miss a day it feels incomplete. I also joined Planet Fitness, doing 45 minutes of cardio and some muscle toning. I never felt better in my life. There is not a “magical” pill that will make you thinner and healthier. But in 6-8 weeks it becomes a regular part of your must do list. Music helps a lot! Just thought I’d share. I lost 35 lbs. and it stayed off till I broke my back (not from walking though haha), Determination to be healthier as we age gets harder, so get going ladies. Thrive!!

      Hi Gigi! Thanks so much for sharing your journey. I keep thinking I’ll wake up and want to exercise… so you say, “NO!” huh? Crap hahahaha. Well, I do walk 7+ miles a day on my route (letter carrier) and climb 62 sets of stairs, but I feel I lack in aerobic exercise. Are we ever happy in this area??!!! I plan on getting my arse moving soon, as I will be retiring September 2nd, and the weight will pile on if I’m not prepared. I took an assignment as a supervisor last year for 3 months, and put on 15 pounds!!! That ain’t happening! I have the weight back off but I am going to prepare so it doesn’t sneak up on me. Thanks again for stopping by! You’re becoming my first ‘regular’ hahaha! Blessings!
