Blog

Belly fat, weight loss, nutrition, fitness, motivation — oh, my! Every Monday and 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 ugly and the comedic.

I promise you will always walk away with real, actionable advice you can use.

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.
