My blog

I blog every Monday and Thursday, tackling topics 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. Go to the bottom of this page and subscribe to my Thursday regular weekly newsletter post or go to my WORK WITH ME page to receive my Monday Motivation.

Best exercise routine for ageless muscles

I am writing this Thursday post on a Tuesday, 48 hours before it’s actually due to appear on my website. That’s 47 hours and 30 minutes earlier than my usual starting time.  Why the rush? Because in two days I’ll be under an avalanche of packing material and unhappy cats, trying to locate a coffeepot…

How to change your mind so you can change your body

I am super stressed right now. I want to get that out in the open first thing in case I say something in this post that either a. gives it away, or b. makes you think I’ve hired a ghostwriter because I’m not my usual jovial self.  Nope, just me. A long meditation and workout did…

#1 Reason why even fit women gain 8 lbs. during menopause (and how to fix it)

I found two grey eyelash hairs this week. The magnitude of this discovery cannot be emphasized enough. Because here’s the thing. I’ve been prematurely grey since high school. It’s a hereditary issue. My dad started turning silver in his teens, and I followed in his footsteps. It’s been a raging battle ever since I can remember.…

The key to create permanent results

We’re moving in a couple of weeks. Our new house is only 12 miles from our current abode, but it may as well be across the continent. Packing is the same regardless. I am not freaking out only because it’s not happening today. Inside, I’m dreading the process with the force of a thousand suns.…

5 Best stretches for women over 50

Every morning I wake up and play a game I call What Hurts Today? Or, if something already hurts, I play a related game, Is It Better or Worse? The answer often reveals itself as soon as I step out of the bed. Other times it begins when I start working out. Other days, like…

Top 5 motivational posts of all time (or at least the past couple years)

I’m not a person to take shortcuts, aside from fast-forwarding through commercials on recorded TV shows. Or when buying a rotisserie chicken when I’m too lazy to cook, which is a lot, unfortunately. But this week I’m making an exception. I spent the entire weekend preparing for a webinar I’m hosting this Thursday, How to…

How to lose weight without really trying

I’m a big believer in signs. Not big, blaring neon signs, although they have their place. I’m referring to the signs your life send you that tell you when you’re on the right track. Or about to derail into a ditch. Fir example… I moved from Connecticut to California about 18 years ago. I was…

How to stay mentally sharp after 50

I have anxiety issues. If you’ve read any of my prior posts (see links below) I’m sure this comes as no surprise. I’ve talked about my battle with panic attacks, which began in my teens when I was rushed to the hospital after I passed out from hyperventilating. So that was fun. It didn’t end…

How to use combination exercises for faster results

I’m a quality versus quantity type of person. Sometimes I combine the two, as noted by my makeup collection and jeans wardrobe. But otherwise, I’d rather have one really nice thing than a bunch of lesser quality ones.    Take friends, for instance.  I don’t have many, but those I have mean a lot to…
