Here are Kim’s key takeaways:

1) Muscle is very important for functional independence, metabolic health and cardiovascular health – especially for women in midlife who lose 8% of muscle every decade 
2) start where you are at – you need to find out what is your physical status and reconnect your brain with your muscle, especially if you haven’t exercised in a long time.
3) I think resilience is more like a safety net that you knit for yourself where you have various points of support, and when one breaks away, you still have all the knots that will help you bounce back and keep going. Don’t rely on just one support in your health system – have various points where you can fall back on
4) Tying to eat healthy is the worst strategy. Make your health goal specific and also let go of the big picture which can scare you. Always focus on what you can do right now, don’t look so far ahead

The biggest takeaway from this episode is this: it’s never too late to take charge of your health – take small steps, start where you are, and celebrate all your little wins and you will see how much better you feel!
