Hi everyone! A popular part of my Fit Over 50 Magazines are my "Denise's Dos!" at the end of each issue. They are my pro tips for living a healthy, happy, rewarding life! My latest issue, "Fit Over 50: Fall Into Fitness" includes nutrition, lifestyle and fitness "Do's" - some of which I wanted to share with you today!

Fitness DO:

"Studies have shown that you can burn up to 500 extra calories a day just by fidgeting!" This is just one of the reasons I LOVE my Fidget-Cisers! They are my tried-and-true targeted moves that can help you firm up your arms, legs, booty and waist - all while you are doing other things, like cooking or watching TV! My YouTube Channel has an entire "Fidget-Ciser" Playlist, with 15 quick and effective moves you can do anywhere, anytime - visit today and check them out (and be sure to subscribe to my YouTube Channel so you never miss a new workout or move)! So if you want to burn an extra 500 calories a day this holiday season, start doing my Fidget-Cisers! Here's one to get you started burning calories AND toning up those inner thighs! 

Nutrition DO:

"The omega-3 fatty acids in tuna, salmon and other fatty fishes have been shown to help lower LDL cholesterol levels." This is just one of the reasons I love to add omega-3 rich foods to my diet! In addition to the healthy cholesterol benefit, omega-3 foods can help to prevent birth defects via their fatty acids, can help keep your hormone levels in check when going through menopause, and can be helpful in warding off dry skin, age-related memory loss and joint concerns. Add some omega-3 fatty acids to your diet via enriched eggs and fatty fish such as my favorite, salmon - try my Glazed Salmon recipe!

Lifestyle DO:

"The skin around the eyes does not have as many oil glands or as much collagen as the rest of your face, making it susceptible to fine lines." As we get older, taking care of these delicate areas is important! I like to use a retinol cream around my eyes - it can be found at the drugstore, and regular use can help to smooth out some of those fine lines and plump up the under-eye area. Start small, and increase usage over time. And be sure to follow it up with sunscreen no matter what time of year - a major "Denise's Do" I always recommend!!

You can see more of my Denise's Do's in my latest issue - and my next issue is hitting newsstands soon!

Let's live EVER BETTERâ„¢ - together!


Video Transcript: Fidget-Ciser Inner Thigh Toner

Hi, I'm Denise Austin. Today's Fidget-ciser is to firm your inner thighs. No more jigglies in the inside of our legs, so all you need is a kitchen countertop right there in your kitchen while your coffee's brewing, give it an inner thigh squeeze. This is one of the best exercises that target tones your inner thighs. No more jigglies, we will firm it right up, I promise. That's so simple. All you to swing it across the front and you feel the inside, that's it. This is firming the muscles all the way from the inner part of the knee up to the pelvic area. It really works, and of course do the other side, inner thigh toner right there in the kitchen. That simple to firm and tone.
