My blog

Every Monday and Thursday I tackle topics of interest to women over 50, 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. (If you’re looking for info on a particular topic, select a category or use the SEARCH box below.)

7 Little things that speed up weight loss

It’s been years since I’ve stepped foot in a Target. I had to stop, because as soon as I made it past the freshly made popcorn, something in my brain clicked. Rationality checked out, and bargain-hunting retail zombie took over.   I became a shopper possessed. It was as if I’d won a supermarket shopping…

5 Morning routines to help you seize the day

I admit, I am a morning person. I get up at 4:15 a.m., usually without an alarm clock.    I can already hear the splash of coffee getting thrown against computer screens in disgust. Let me explain. Actually, I can’t. When anyone questions my bizarre personality quirk I usually blame years of in-home personal training…

10 ways to get in shape when exercise bores you to tears

A couple years ago I started a Facebook group for women over 50 (Ageless After 50 Women). We share issues ranging from weight loss to hot flashes and anything relevant to health and fitness that’s frustrating enough to make you seek anger management treatments, book a flight on the next Mars mission, or start a…

Stop doing this ONE thing and boost motivation instantly

I don’t consider myself a complainer. As I typed that sentence I instantly flashed back to all the posts I wrote about my arthritic knee, being overwhelmed and stressed out, and all the general frustrations of life.  So let me start again: I would like to consider myself a non-complainer. But apparently, I still need…

We were without power for 10 straight hours one day last week. To give you an idea of the impact of the situation, just typing that sentence made me break out in a cold sweat. Here’s the thing. Typically, power outages occur during a severe thunderstorm, in the middle of a nor’easter or when someone…

3 Exercises that don’t do what you think they do

Let me start by saying we all do the best we can with the knowledge we have. This means, unless you’re a trained professional in every aspect of life, you likely have gaps in the information you possess. So, hence, you rely on info provided by other people. First, let’s take a quick look at…

5 Tips for a pain-free workout

I recently read a story about the demise of an Indonesian man, Mbah Gotho, who claimed to be 146 years old when he died.    Many people say he exaggerated. For one, Indonesia did not begin recording births until 1900, which makes his claim suspicious. Truth is, he may have been a whippersnapper of merely 120-something.…

6 Key ingredients for a DIY success plan

Let me say upfront that I did not go from owning a bakery to becoming a personal trainer for its shock value. And, contrary to popular rumors, nor did I do it to create my own clientele. Although that would’ve been ingenious on my part. Truth is, as a creative person, I loved the decorating…

How to get shapely, jiggle-free, tank top worthy arms

I’ve talked a number of times about my battle with anxiety.   In a nutshell: It’s no walk in the park. It is, however, a run through the park with a knife-wielding psycho breathing down your neck. At least that’s how it feels when you’re having a panic attack. If you’re new to my blog…
