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 mentioned in prior posts how we only recently moved into our current abode. Eight months ago, in fact. We’re still going through the growing pains of figuring out how our new neighborhood operates. This includes uncovering the following mysteries: How many kids to...read more
I mentioned in last week’s blog that I was going to the doctor for my annual physical. Before I go down this rabbit hole, let me acknowledge something in case you’ve also noticed it. I looked at the opening paragraphs of my recent posts and realized I started out...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
Pop quiz time! Sharpen your No. 2 pencils and fire up your thinking caps. Today’s challenge is a little different from my usual tests in that I want you to guess which of the following, seemingly ridiculous, scenarios I did NOT do last week... Only one is correct,...read more
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

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
