Fifty+, Fit and Fabulous!! Angelique Miles, Age 53, Wellness “Influencer” (…she lives around the corner from the Fountain of Youth)

Man!! Mother Nature is not messing around when cranking out these amazing 50+ women!!!


But hey, my female readers are loving these Fifty+, Fit and Fabulous posts (which I keep saying, I didn’t see that coming)

…..so, I gotta keep cranking them out.

A rough job {chuckle} but somebody’s gotta do it!!!

Anyhoo, welcome Angelique Miles to my 50+ “Dream Team”. Angelique calls herself a “Wellness Influence-er” (I kinda like that…)

She also calls herself a “True New Yorker” (…I dedicated one of my favorite New York songs to her below)

Here is a little Q&A with Angelique, courtesy of TheRoot.com .and SticlyBeStocks.com ….

How did fitness move to the forefront of your life?

Angelique: It’s about looking a certain way. I was 40, no longer working in the music industry after 20 years and gaining weight. I didn’t want to look down and out, too. I did aggressive workouts, like CrossFit, that helped me become a runner.

I see you did the “big chop”! What’s your hair routine?

Angelique: When I turned 40, I started to gain weight and do a lot of sweaty cardio. Hair was an issue. Now I co-wash with SheaMoisture, a little bit of coconut oil. I shape it and set with Nairobi wrap lotion and let it air-dry for 30 minutes—I never flat-iron. I go to the barber every two weeks; it just saves me a lot of time and energy.

What was your idea behind starting your Instagram page?

Angelique: I wanted the page to be for women of a certain age to live their best life, not just through fitness but also through their general lifestyle. I don’t live the lifestyle my mother had when she was 52. I’m social, I travel, I go out and I’m active in my community. But since I believe fitness is the fountain of youth, much of the page is dedicated to that.

What do you wish you’d known at 35?

Angelique: I wish I had known my body and fitness needs would change. As your body changes, your workout changes as well. I was very thin up to about 40, and I weigh a lot more now. At 40, I just had to work out a bit more. At 45 I had to watch my diet more. And the closer I got to 50, the less I could eat and the more I needed to work out. That’s just me, and everyone’s different.



How has your approach to nutrition changed?

Angelique: As I get older, there are things that my body doesn’t take too well. I don’t drink milk, and I’ve cut back on dairy and sugar in general. It’s hard to give up cheese!

What are you top tips for those over 50 who want to work out in a healthy, safe, effective way?

Angelique: I think fitness is the foundation of youth, so try to work out when you can. I work out during the week, and I take weekends off for the most part. Even if you’re not a morning person, try to fit it in first thing to make sure you get it done.

What do you think your life would be like right now if you weren’t working out?

Angelique: There was a time that I did stop working out, for maybe, like, six months. I ballooned up to, like, 170 pounds. I’m 5 feet 8, so to most people, it didn’t look like I was big. It’s just too much weight on my frame.

How would you define ageless beauty?

Angelique: Ageless beauty is accepting all of your flaws, and realizing you’re beautiful. I was stabbed in the face when I was 16 years old. I had to get 150 stitches. And I’ve suffered psoriasis all over my face and body since I was 13 years old. My teenage years were really rough, self-esteem-wise. I hated my skin. I used to try to hide it, because on my medium-brown skin, psoriasis leaves scars.

Hey Angelique!! This is how I’m processing out my “Schoolboy Crush” on you 🙂 I loved this song growing up but never got to play it for anybody…until now…Namaste 🙂

Thanks so much for continuing to create such inspirational content! Omi

Hi Omi,

No problem on my end, this website is my passion and my “Minds Eye”, I’m always gonna put inspirational things out there, meaning, when I myself am inspired by something or someone I run across. I’ve slowed down my writing a bit over the past year, I was on hiatus this summer, taking a break from writing, and upgrading the site.

But as with this article, when I myself am inspired, I’ll stop, take the time, and make a new article.

Strange enough, when I looked at this article after finishing it, I said to myself, “this kind of post is why I got the Wellness Blogging thing in the first place, to help spread positive energy in a world of too much negative energy”.

I appreciate your comment, these little “accolades” are my only payment for my not-for-profit work 🙂
