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.

Challenges have become a big thing lately. They can be healthy challenges (like the Ab Challenge I offer, which you can download HERE) or harmless ones like the mannequin challenge, where participants freeze in position for no reason other than to appear on YouTube...read more
I confess, I don't always follow the rules. Don't get me wrong, I walk my talk. But I sometimes fall victim to laziness, procrastination, and allow my obnoxious inner child to run rampant through supermarket aisles, opening up all the coffee bean dispensers just for...read more
My brain does not work like most people's. If you've read any of my posts, this will not exactly be news to you. I call it being "artsy," which translates to, "I am completely nuts, but sometimes those crazy thoughts produce something creative, so I get a pass." It...read more
It hit 105 degrees here yesterday. Considering we do not live on the surface of the sun, that's rather toasty for the end of October, even for Southern California. To top it off, it was windy. Not a cool breeze to help make the hot temps more bearable, but we get a...read more
I had two cavities filled yesterday. And no, my blog has not been hijacked by a 7-year old. But I realize that statement doesn’t make sense. Eating Frosted Flakes and Pop-Tarts for breakfast and snacking on candy necklaces gives you cavities. How the heck do you get...read more
Last weekend my husband and I went to a local museum to hear Ernest Shackleton’s granddaughter give a talk about the life of her famous grandad. If you’re unfamiliar with Shackleton, he was a polar explorer who led an expedition to the Antarctic in 1914 on a ship...read more
We’re in the process of transitioning from an electric stove to a gas stove. That single, harmless sounding sentence contains six months worth of price shopping, no-show workmen, and enough angst to take us to the end of 2017 and halfway into 2018. Let me explain....read more
I was almost struck by lightning once. It happened during a visit to a client’s house in Connecticut many years ago. I specify Connecticut because here in Southern California lightning storms are as common as a salad without sliced avocado. In other words: never...read more
In the 20 years I worked as an in-home trainer, I quickly realized home workouts are a lot like going on a new ride at the local fair: You're halfway through before you realize it's scarier than you anticipated, you're not having fun, and you're screaming at the ride...read more
