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.

Guess what? Yes, it’s that time of year again when we ask ourselves three things... 1.Why not leave up the holiday decorations all year round to avoid risking our lives climbing to the top of a 9-foot tree every December? 2. Wasn’t it just Halloween? 3. How many...read more
I like to hang around with people who challenge me. I’m not referring to friends who spontaneously subject me to an arm wrestling match, dare me to jump from a moving vehicle doing 60 mph or participate in an archeological dig inside an active volcano. It’s way...read more

I have a doctor’s appointment this Friday. Two, back-to-back, actually. I know what you’re thinking, “Oh, no! Linda’s got some weird illness and we’ll never hear about her ridiculously silly life situations again. I guess I’ll renew my subscription to Mad Magazine.”...read more
