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.

Every morning when I open my browser, I can count on seeing three things: a political scandal that makes me run for the Pepto-Bismol, a food I've been eating "all wrong," and a magical workout guaranteed to transform my life beyond my wildest dreams. And each day I...read more
Personal training isn't a career path typically fraught with danger. But the possibility of an errant piece of fitness tubing ricocheting across the room, a dropped dumbbell or verbal abuse from a client who decides you'd make a good sounding board can all do damage....read more
Here's the thing about aging: It's not something you think about until your body decides to send you a reminder, "Oh, I guess cage wrestling isn't the best idea at my age." I had one of those reminders at the eye doctor last week. No, not cage wrestling, but just as...read more
