What we think of old is changing

I recently watched a documentary on ITV called ‘The Secrets of Growing Old’. It was a positive look at the many benefits of being older as well as some age defining insights into what ages us and how we can redefine our age. Using some inspirational older people the...

re-invent yourself in middle-age

I have a dream of a future that is very unlike my current situation. One where I live in a hot country during the winter months in England. I live off my passive income from being an online blogger and enjoying the freedom that comes from living in 'paradise'. Getting...

Zestizm 2018 update

Happy 2018. I thought I would start the New Year with a Zestizm update and a quick outline of what I am aiming to achieve in 2018. Of course the best laid plans can sometimes be shot to hell but I am giving it a go. Adventures, group activities and fitness are my main...

Strong not saggy

In this video I focus on how I want to redefine age by being strong not saggy. I am taking my motivation from the young women who want to be strong not skinny, which is a great goal to achieve. Rather than focusing on being skinny and having no lean muscle and...

I wanted to show what a plant-based diet day of eating looks like in this video and provide a bit of an update. It was a bit of a foggy day so I stayed in. This is my attempt to share more of what I like to eat and also share some information on Heather who has lost...

Eating 5-A-day is easier now

Eating 5-A-day is easier now

I once read that the problem with our diet (lifestyle) is not in the fact that we don't eat enough protein, or that we are not getting our share of healthy fats but that we don't eat enough fiber. Our real problem is the lack of fiber in our diets. So, when the...

Healthy winter soups

I bought myself a load of veg and was looking at making my favourite carrot, broccoli and celery juice but it is so cold my thoughts turned to healthy winter soups. I mentioned I had bought a slow cooker a while ago but haven't gotten round to using it yet. As it...

Favorite green juice

Favorite green juice

I have been making my favorite green juice today. It is a fairly simple recipe and very light on the 'green' taste. Plus it is economical because you get a lot of juice out of the vegetables. One of the downsides of juicing carrots is you need a lot of carrots to make...

Flash fiction story : Wait and dream

Flash fiction story : Wait and dream

I watch the bumper cars and listen to the 80s tune that blares out of the cheap speakers, distorting the words so you have no idea what’s being sung unless you happen to know the song. The sound is so loud that it makes conversation impossible. The music mixes and...

The Silence

The Silence

It rings out from empty pages and forgotten journals. It follows me as I watch TV and sit in the garden admiring the red of the robins chest. I want to do something about it but resistance grips me and another day goes by without a word written or a story shared. I...

Before a fall

Before a fall

I had never ridden a bicycle before but he dared me and I wasn't about to admit my failings to anyone, especially him. So what if I was a girl, I was older and taller than he was with a desperate need to prove I was equal. It wasn’t as if I hadn’t sat on a bike...

Redefine Age

What we think of old is changing. Zestizm is here to remind me and you of that very fact.

As we live longer the way we eat and move our body becomes crucial to enjoying not just the years in our life but the life in our years.

I was 47 years old when I decided to reduce the animal products I eat like meat and dairy. Increase the range of fruits and veg I eat while finding a way to balance that with regular exercise.

It is a continuous journey. This website reminds me to stay on it. It contains a mixture of what I am doing and what research and science says we should do.

I am NOT A MEDICAL PRACTITIONER. This site is for information only.
