Fun adventures at midlife. Brought to you by +AlmondBreezeUS #ad   #almondMilk   #coconutMilk  
Have you had to make a bunch of adjustments in order to stay active in midlife? Or cut things out that you used to enjoy because they hurt too much or put too much wear and tear on your baby boomer body?

Want some cute bunny rabbit dinner rolls? #Recipe  #ad
Springtime is a time for baking, which includes bunnies. Not real ones; dinner rolls! You knew that of course. At about the same time Blue Diamond sent me Honey Cinnamon almonds (and Honey Dijon almonds), a friend sent me a picture of rabbit rolls, knowing my love of “creative” baking. Voila! I created Cinnamon Sugar Bunny Rolls.

Looking for some joint-friendly #exercises   #rheumatoidarthritis   #RA  
Got sore joints but want to work out? A reader with Felty's syndrome (a rare form of rheumatoid arthritis) as us what she can do to restart an exercise program after a 5 year hiatus. Her bones ache and body talks back to her, but she does have options.

Super easy, healthy and delicious #smoothie    #recipe  using Almond Breeze unsweetened vanilla #almondmilk   #ad  
Nearly every work morning I make a protein shake as I fly out the door to teach. Ninety-nine times out of 100, I use unsweetened vanilla almond milk in that shake.

Want a seated  #abs  exercise for the #obliques  that is easy on the back and knees? http://funandfit.org/seated-abs-exercise-obliques-circle/ #FitFluential  
If you want an abs move that will make your obliques stronger and help you have a leaner look in the waist, then the Seated Obliques Circle is for you. Whether you have weak abs or strong, this exercise has a version you can do. And the good news is that it might be perfect for people with bad backs or knees, or even for people who want to avoid lying down.

How would you feel if you unexpectedly became someone's caretaker? 
When you unexpectedly become a caretaker, it's easy to get sucked into the myth of selflessness and "bearing up." I'm here to say that you'll also be pissed off, sad, overwhelmed and guilt-ridden.

Which fitness products, trends, and exercises lie in your future active life? Catch highlights from the recent 2015 IHRSA Convention and Trade show. Would you try these new things suited for Boomers (or anyone who wants to age actively, yet has joint aches and pains and limitations)?!

5 Ingredient Curried Salmon w/ Cantaloupe on Salt & Pepper Flatbread http://funandfit.org/flatbread-recipe-five-ingredient.../ Created as part of a campaign with +FitFluential for +Flatout Bread  #flatoutlove  
At a recent breakfast hosted by Flatout Bread I was invited to create a recipe using one of their three new flatbread flavors. I decided to create a wrap using the Sea Salt and Crushed Black Pepper that only needed 5 ingredients - Curried Salmon with Cantaloupe.

Introduction
Alexandra Williams, MA
Co-owner of Fun and Fit

Social Influence Summary:

I have been teaching, mentoring, presenting, emceeing, editing and writing about fitness for over 25 years. Currently on staff in the Dept. of Exercise Studies at UCSB, I am a contributing editor and writer for IDEA International Health and Fitness Association and frequent guest blogger for numerous online health sites. I co-host the international online radio show, "Fun and Fit"  with my twin sister Kymberly. We also have a blog, Fun and Fit. I am also a former judge for international aerobic championships. My advanced degree in counseling has helped me succeed as a speaker and presenter at professional conventions both in the US and Europe, and as a master teacher for university students and new group exercise leaders. I love people, fitness and a microphone--a winning combination!

There's a rumor out that I'm witty. I started that rumor. My two teens would like to end it.
