Every Monday and Thursday I tackle topics of interest to women over 50, ranging from belly fat, weight loss, nutrition, fitness, motivation and more.
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 and the ugly.
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.

I received an invitation to my 40th high school reunion this week. This was one of those reality checks I could do without. Reading it was the equivalent of someone taking me by the shoulders, and saying, "Look me in the eye. You, my friend, are no spring chicken."...read more
I talked recently about my love for sci-fi movies, but I left out one important reason. Sure, drooling, double-jawed space aliens bursting out of people’s bodies are hard to top, but my fixation goes beyond the obvious. Hint: It has to do with zero gravity. Zero...read more
I’ve never been one to strive for fame and fortune, at least not in the traditional sense. Here’s the thing. It’s hard enough to keep in shape without seeing your photo on the cover of The National Enquirer with a circle around your belly and a caption, “Baby bump...read more

Last night we watched a sci-fi movie called “Life.” Like many of these types of movies it starts out with a bunch of scientists embarking on a mission, all gung-ho and ready to make history with some groundbreaking new discovery. And then, of course, things go...read more
Every gym has its cast of characters. Regardless of how small, large, or where in the country, you can always count on a few interesting creatures to show up at any gathering place where sweat, spandex and mirrors is involved. It’s as if they are paid extras who...read more
