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.

5 Simplest weight loss tactics ever

Before I get into this embarrassing story, let me say upfront I’ve never been a techie person. I can upload videos on YouTube, write this blog on my site and perform enough basic functions to give the illusion I can handle modern life. That façade got blown out of the water this past week in…

8 FAQs about cardio and resistance training for an ageless body

I compare the aging process to the scene in Indiana Jones where Harrison Ford runs from a giant boulder chasing him through a tunnel. The rock represents everything I hate about aging: aches, pains, depression, menopause, night sweats and depression. (I realize I mentioned depression twice, but it’s on my mind so I’m leaving it.)…

#1 Trait that determines your success no one tells you

If you’re a regular reader you may think my life is one hilarious encounter after another. And while some days that’s true, other times this could not be farther from the truth. Case in point: this week.  For one, I strained my back at the gym yesterday because I forgot I’m no spring chicken, so…

7 Fat-Burning Walking Workouts (plus survey results!)

A couple months ago I sent out a survey asking a bunch of nosy questions.  It was all with the best of intentions. The goal was to find out what you and other Ageless After 50 women find most challenging in regards to weight loss and getting in shape. First of all, if you were…

#1 Most overlooked muscle that determines your success

We all have our quirks. Granted, I have more than my fair share, which I am about to prove once again.  When you’re just getting to know someone it usually takes only a few meetings before you decide you like them, or they reveal something that quickly lets you know it’s time to part ways.…

4 Dietary mistakes you don’t know you’re making

As you probably know by now, mainly because I’ve brought it up enough times, I once worked as a restaurant pastry chef and owned a bakery. I prided myself on decorating a basketweave wedding cake within 45 minutes and making cream puff batter from scratch. I often feel my current occupation is karma’s way of helping…

How to change what you can… and make peace with the rest

I’ve started writing this post about half a dozen times and I hereby vow to actually finish it. I’m struggling because we’re in the midst of buying a new home, I’m having emotional issues with a good friend and the Word grammar tool keeps providing unsolicited advice on ways to make my sentences more succinct.…

5 Real deal, science-based, fat burners

Sometimes I worry I’ll run out of things to blog about. Then I remember my life is a string of non-stop, ridiculous events… and I relax. Take last week, for example.      I was brushing my teeth, getting ready for bed. I could hear my husband rummaging through the freezer in the kitchen. Part…

#1 Way to stop spinning your wheels

If you’ve read a few of my posts you probably know by now that I’m a bit eccentric. Not in a mad scientist, collect-my-urine-in-bottles-never-cut-my-fingernails way, but in an I-have-my-own-ideas-and-I’m-not-afraid-to-use-them way. In other words, I am not a follower. You won’t catch me wearing a designer’s name across my butt, hopping on some “great, new” diet…
