Belly fat, weight loss, nutrition, fitness, motivation — oh my!
Every Thursday I tackle these popular topics of interest to women over 50. I wrap it all up in a humorous package to make it easy to digest.
In the process I also give you a glimpse into the struggles of my own life – the good, the bad, the scary, and the comedic.
I promise you will always walk away with real, actionable advice you can use.
It’s why my blog was recently given an award for the #1 Fitness Over 50 Blog.
In a rush to get all the latest and greatest? I also send out each post in the form of a newsletter in which you can subscribe.

I ate a Caesar salad (dressing on the side) last week. Normally this act would not raise an eyebrow and may even elicit a sarcastic, "Oh, good for you. I ate an entire pizza." But since the romaine lettuce E. coli scare, this same statement is on par with running with...read more
This week I spent two days at a business event. As an introvert, that very sentence is enough to make me want to hide in a closet. Don't get me wrong. I enjoy meeting people, especially since I know many in this particular group. But being in a roomful of other...read more
I just came back from the dentist. I'll wait for the applause to die down before continuing. Because, seriously, every person should be met with a cheering crowd after any dental work. Whether it's deep cleaning with what feels like construction equipment or root...read more
Whether you feel like a grownup or not, after 50 you can rest assured you’re as much of an official adult as you’ll ever be. This is both good and bad. Here’s the upside: Your entire life is up to you. The food you eat, the clothes you wear, the people in your social...read more
We met with our financial planner last week. First, let me say right out of the gate that dealing with numbers is as appealing to me as a plate of dried rattlesnake meat. In other words: NOT AT ALL (unless you include a kickbutt BBQ sauce, then I may be on board)....read more
Every morning when I open my browser, I can count on seeing three things: a political scandal that makes me run for the Pepto-Bismol, a food I've been eating "all wrong," and a magical workout guaranteed to transform my life beyond my wildest dreams. And each day I...read more
Personal training isn't a career path typically fraught with danger. But the possibility of an errant piece of fitness tubing ricocheting across the room, a dropped dumbbell or verbal abuse from a client who decides you'd make a good sounding board can all do damage....read more
