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 have a thing for coffee. To fully comprehend what I’m about to say, it’s helpful to know something about me: I tend to get obsessed with things, I do them to excess, burn out, then I move to the next thing and never look back. I do this with music, too. I hear a...read more
Before you ask, yes, I am making up new syndromes. I don’t know if "the birthday blues" actually exist, but I’ve had it every year since turning 40. It officially started the year I learned about the number of calories in birthday cake. Until then, it was all about My...read more
