Belly fat, weight loss, nutrition, fitness, motivation — oh, my! Every Monday and 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 ugly and the comedic.
I promise you will always walk away with real, actionable advice you can use.

It’s been a crazy week. How crazy, you ask? For one, a snake crawled up onto my car’s dashboard while I was driving last week. Actually, it was likely a salamander but does it really matter? The scariest thing about it was knowing I absolutely must blog about it and...read more
