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 awarded the #1 Fitness Over 50 Blog in a recent survey.
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 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
After sitting here for literally an hour trying to come up with an opening sentence, I realize the problem. These blogs would be so much easier if I led an exciting life. I would start by saying things like, “I just returned from an African safari and here’s what I...read more
I was going to jump right into the meat of this post for a change, skip all the rigamarole. But then I worried you’d think my life had finally straightened itself out and all was hunky dorey in my world. Such is not the case. For example, the other night I couldn’t...read more
Our neighbors had an outdoor party the other night. Normally, I have no trouble getting to sleep, but that fact changes when an entire yard full of people decide to sing to Italian songs at the top of their lungs just outside my window. Are you freakin’ kidding...read more
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
