Getting Back into It (an update)

Nov 23rd, 2014 | By Nancy Andrews | Category: Coach Nancy - The Way I See It..., Living the Fit Life, Women's Workout Advice

I’ve been quite quiet for awhile.  Not because I have lost interest in fitness and health but because I’ve been really busy over the last 6 months.  I was working as a consultant (financial matters) and while I loved the money, the jobs I was getting required a lot of hours.  So I looked for [...]

Warning – if you are heavily into Paleo or low carb and like it – this post is NOT for you. Funny thing is, I was paleo and then restricted carb for years.  I thought I was at the forefront of healthy eating.  So much so that when I first encountered the work of Ray [...]



Healing at a Deeper Level

Feb 27th, 2014 | By Nancy Andrews | Category: Coach Nancy - The Way I See It..., Living the Fit Life, Nutrition & Weight Loss

This might be a long post. I’ve been on a health journey over the last few months.  Those of you who know me know I’ve been committed to a healthy lifestyle for years.  It’s helped me to lose weight, put on muscle and avoid illness.  All good – right? So back in October when I [...]



I still hate yoga – but I do it anyway

Nov 6th, 2013 | By Nancy Andrews | Category: Coach Nancy - The Way I See It..., Living the Fit Life, Women's Workout Advice

It’s now been 4 years since I started my first round of P90X.  WOW – it doesn’t seem that long!  But part of P90X is a day of yoga.  When I was doing P90X, I hated the Yoga X workout.  It is 90 minutes long and I could not do many of the exercises. Fast [...]



Can You Improve Your Mood with Probiotics?

May 13th, 2013 | By Nancy Andrews | Category: Coach Nancy - The Way I See It..., Living the Fit Life, Nutrition & Weight Loss, P90X Diet

Many of us know that we need to add probiotic foods (and sometimes even capsules) to make sure our digestion is working.  If you also know that probiotics are essential to having a strong immune system, consider yourself well informed.  What many of use don’t know is that probiotics may help our mood – in [...]

My Anti-Aging Diet Superfoods: Avocados

Aug 6th, 2012 | By Nancy Andrews | Category: Coach Nancy - The Way I See It..., Living the Fit Life, Nutrition & Weight Loss

Let’s face it, when you are over 50 as I am, you start thinking more about how to live longer.  No one wants to think their time is winding down.  And even as we accept that perhaps we now have more years behind us than before us, we want every year to be full of [...]



Extreme Longevity – Supreme Health

Aug 2nd, 2012 | By Nancy Andrews | Category: Coach Nancy - The Way I See It..., Living the Fit Life

How long can we humans live with abundant, supreme health? I’ve been thinking about this lately – which may be partly due to watching too many 100+ birthday announcements on the Today show – and partly due to having to care more for my 80 year old mom. And maybe it’s because at 53, I’d [...]



My Achilles Heel

Dec 1st, 2011 | By Nancy Andrews | Category: Coach Nancy - The Way I See It..., Living the Fit Life

We all have weaker parts of our body, mine happens to be my calve muscles.  It’s not that mine are not strong or well developed (they are) but they do have a tendency to pull.  I watch my mineral content so it’s not that my diet is lacking potassium, magnesium or calcium, it’s just a [...]
