I am so happy to be back at the microphone!  I cannot believe it’s been a year since I wrapped up Season One – kinda like waiting for Mad Men to come back from hiatus.  I’ve changed up the name of the podcast to The Hemline. The Hemline is significant because I grew up tugging at the hem of my mother’s skirt. Skirt lengths can change over time, but southern hospitality never goes out of style. I’ll be sharing the same great content with some fun surprises and co-hosts for this season.

In this episode, I bring you up-to-date on why I had to take a break from the podcast and regroup – something called graduate school.  Wow, it’s been great to be back in school, but I had to learn some serious time management skills along the way.

I also had a life change as a 50+ woman – the “M” word – menopause and all that entails (think hot flashes and mood swings). Plus I share some information on new supplements I am taking to put me on track to embrace 2020 in the best health possible.

As always I include links to resources in my show notes.

Dietary Supplements I have added to my daily routine:

Ritual Daily Multivitamins for Women 50+ – It’s the very first daily vitamin I have stuck with mainly because it goes down so easy and it’s got a really nice mint flavor and scent. Let me know if you want a $15 coupon good toward your first month’s subscription and I will send you a promo link. Made by women for women. Many multis have 20+ ingredients you already get enough of from food. Ritual contains nutrients women need post-menopause—in absorbable forms your body can actually use – sourced in verified locations around the world. I take one in the morning when I rise, and one at night when I go to bed.

Goli Apple Cider Vinegar Gummies – I’ve been adding ACV to water for a while now, but these gummies are much easier to take. ACV promotes digestion, more energy, clearer skin, and it’s a natural detoxification supplement. I chew two gummies at night before bed.

Nature’s Way MCV Oil – Medium Chain Triglycerides made only from premium coconuts with no palm or filler oils.  Each serving provides 14 grams of 100% pure source MCTs, including caprylic and capric acids. It helps to promote brain and memory function, boosts energy and increases endurance, lowers cholesterol and blood sugar levels and helps to promote weight loss because it makes you feel full. I add one tablespoon to my coffee every morning.

Live Well Collagen Peptides – I add one scoop of this anti-aging powder to my fruit smoothie to promote hair, skin, nail growth and joint support. The latter is especially important since I am back in the gym.

As always, be sure to consult with your physician first before starting any new supplement to make sure it’s right for you.

Take a listen to season two, episode one here, or wherever you listen to your podcasts. And remember the sincerest form of appreciation is to share it with your friends.  Thanks for listening!
