After I turned 50, my body started to change in ways I never thought it would. In addition, my bone density test showed that, like many women who go through menopause and lose estrogen, my bones were getting thinner, too.
I knew I had to take action.
So, I embarked on a fitness plan a few years ago which includes the basics: push-ups, the Plank, and squats. They are all remarkably efficient and effective . . . but only if you do them correctly. Because with these exercises, form is everything.
I try to do 20 push-ups and 20 squats every day, followed by holding the Plank position for 60 minutes. Then, I take a 10-second “breather” and do them all over again. If I’m up for it, I do it a 3rd time. Best part? It all takes less than 15 minutes!
This plan, along with running every other day, helped me lose weight, keep it off, build better bones, and feel fantastic!
For my web series on the AARP YouTube Channel, I’ve created several videos to show you how to do these essential exercises correctly. Here’s the one for the Squat. Try your best to push your “tush” as far back as possible as you’re lowering yourself down. That will take the pressure off your knees.
AND REMEMBER THIS: WE CAN’T CONTROL GETTING OLDER . . . BUT WE CAN CONTROL HOW WE DO IT!

Our self-esteem is tightly woven into our sexuality. We live in a youth-obsessed society, and admitting that our vaginas are changing — even to our closest friends — is like wearing a t-shirt that reads: “Ignore me. I’m over the hill.”
We rationalize that anyone can have dry eyes or hair, but, many people believe, only women who are getting old have dry vaginas (which isn’t true). And, it’s so easy to think that you’re the only one who has the problem.
