Act2Reinvent is synonymous with reinvention for women 40+.  Thursday morning we had the privilege of speaking with a woman who is also synonymous with reinvention, in fact Dr. Pamela Peeke MD, MPH, FACP was instrumental in helping to launch MORE Magazine's Reinvention Convention.  This year's Convention happens Monday October 5th, 2009.  In the midst of it all, Dr. Peeke agreed to sit down with A2R.

Women reinventing themselves mentally, physically & spiritually are near & dear to Dr. Peeke.  "It flips your lid when you see what women are taking on, allowing themselves to be courageous enough to take it (reinvention) on."

 Dr. Pamela Peeke is an internationally renowned physician, scientist and expert in the fields of nutrition, metabolism, stress and fitness. An avid athlete, Dr. Peeke is nationally known as the "doc who walks the talk" as she inspires by living the message she teaches.  "I identify fitness a little bit differently.  It's not just pumping your biceps.  I look at fitness more holistically."  

"I look at mind, nutritional, physical, spiritual fitness as all working together.  That's what women are looking for.  Women no longer want to be just thin.  What they want to be is fit & healthy.  That's music to my ears."

"And they want t do it in a way that works for them.  It's the hardest thing for a woman to do is to find the time to get out there and get physically active, because women are time-starved.  But when she understands that the driving force to maintain her mental & spiritual sanity is to get out and take that walk, forget about getting to a smaller size, which will happen anyway.  The key is to remember the mind-body connection on this.  At the same time realize that it helps power you through the day.  You really feel like you can cope with a lot of the tough stuff that's happening in your life."
