Happy Wednesday, ladies! Do I have a post for you! Or should I say a post geared towards you? I am so excited to share a solution to a question many of us struggle with: how to lose belly fat over 50. Today, I’m partnering with FASTer Way to Fat Loss which has tailored made this round for the over 50 women.

If we want to age with grace, strength, and beauty, we have to arm ourselves with proper knowledge. While I am not a fitness expert, FASTer Way to Fat Loss is an expert in the industry, which is why I rely on their guidance. This is but one of many reasons I love to share this program with you. But what I do want is to be the healthiest 63-year-old I can be, and I know health is of utmost importance to you too. And I do receive daily questions about how I stay fit or how to lose belly fat over 50...

The Summary

  Today's I'm featuring FASTer Way To Fat Loss, as I'm preparing to begin a new round of the program May 23rd

  I've also linked an interview with Amanda Tress, the founder of FASTer Way To Fat Loss

  I've provided tons of links to active- and swimwear that I've featured over the past few weeks.  Plus a bunch of new items for Summer

How To Lose Belly Fat Over 50

1. FASTer Way To Fat Loss

That’s where FASTer Way to Fat Loss steps in. This a-ma-zing program changed my life when I embarked on my fitness journey. FASTer Way to Fat Loss opened my eyes as to how to properly fuel my body. What we feed our body every day is 80% of the solution or the problem. 

If your diet is working against you (and for many of us, it is) and you don’t have a consistent exercise program, that’s a recipe for belly fat accumulating since our metabolism starts to slow down after menopause. For years, we've been taught that weight gain and an ever-expanding waistline are normal once we hit a certain age. Wrong! Did you know that significant fat loss IS possible at age 50 and beyond?!

Travel week continues with active outfits that are cute enough for even the most avid couch potato. When traveling it's important to have at least one outfit to lounge around the hotel room or grab a quick cup of coffee. Your schedule might include a hike, long walk, or just exploring the city. And it's always a good idea to stick to our workout routines while we're away from home. Today, let's take a look at 3 vacation activewear outfits that will keep our style at the top of its game.

Last year, I shared Sweaty Betty with you in several posts. Read those posts here and here I discovered this brand at my favorite retailer Nordstrom which always carries the best brands and makes shopping a breeze. Just like last year, I found more than one cute item to add to my shopping cart. As a matter of fact, I found not one but three darling outfits that will be on style repeat all Spring and Summer.

If you're not familiar with Sweaty Betty (don't you just love that name?!) this is an activewear company that’s available at Nordstrom. It's a London based brand that creates “gym to gin” looks. Yep, they think it’s cool to sweat all while making you look and feel amazing. So do I!

The Summary

  Today features 3 Sweaty Betty outfits from Nordstrom

3 Vacation Activewear Outfits

1. Sleeveless Jumpsuit

(Nordstrom)

First up is this adorable sleeveless jumpsuit available in three colors that's cute enough to run around town in. If you are looking for a comfy and cute outfit this is it!  It has a racerback, handy pockets, and jogger hems. If you're not a fan of sleeveless tops then simply add a tee-shirt underneath the jumpsuit.

Add a jean jacket (similar here) and of the moment white platform sneakers and you have an outfit that's perfect to take along on vacation.

2. Sweatshirt & Shorts

(Nordstrom)

Next is an outfit that can take you on an exploring expedition or a long walk. The "IT" color this year is emerald green so these Sweaty Betty cotton shorts are not only cute and comfy but on-trend. These pull-on shorts have a relaxed fit and come in four colors with a matching cropped sweatshirt that's the perfect third layer if the temps are chilly.

This outfit can go from the pickleball court to a nature walk with ease. White platform sneakers Check. White tee. Check.

3. Crop Top & Leggings

(Nordstrom)

When it's time to work out why not head to the gym in an outfit that works overtime with moisture wicking fabric. Love the color block details on the workout crop top and the leggings. Plus, there are two pockets on either side of the leggings to tuck away your phone or stash a power bar.

This boxy tank top matches perfectly with the leggings and is a nice alternative to the crop top. FYI my Pilates instructor went ga ga over this ensemble.

In Case You Missed It

It's travel week on the blog.  Yesterday, I showed you 3 on-trend vacation outfits.  Click the title or image below to read the article.

With the rise of athleisure as its own fashion category and continued work-from-home affordances, activewear continues to take up larger portions of our wardrobes.  It’s not uncommon for 10, 20, even 30 percent of our closet space to be devoted to this category alone.  And brands have responded.  From Zelle to Athleta, retailers are delivering new and stylish sports bras, leggings, joggers, tanks, and the like.   I thought it would be fun, then, to round up my essential activewear 2022 edition.  

Whether you’re actively hitting the gym, spending the day with your grand kiddos, or working in the garden, activewear is a prominent part of our fashion lives.  And there’s no reason not to have fun and feel good in it:  from animal prints to bright colors to interesting patterns, activewear gives us a chance to take fashion risks we otherwise may not be willing to take. 

Essential activewear 2022

Today, I’ve rounded up 5 categories of items from 4 different retailers.  The items are 

  • tights & leggings;
  • joggers; 
  • tanks;
  • sports bras; and
  • hoodies & sweatshirts.

The retailers I’ve included are 

For those new to our roundups, the idea is simple.  I reach into my archives and give you a variety of different ways to style each item.  As many of the photos are old, I’ve gone and created shoppable widgets of in-stock, and often newly arrived similars from the above retailers.   

As athleisure sizing can be idiosyncratic, if the links direct you to a size that doesn’t fit, you can often just search the item on the retailer’s and find the appropriate size. 

(And just FYI, Zelle has a lot of their items on sale, so take a look.)
