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.)

5 Times you get in your own way… and how to stop it

We’ve been our new house for three weeks now, and I’ve come to a number of realizations. One, is how even though we moved only 12 miles from our former house, it may as well be on another planet.  I do my shopping at all new stores, including an organic grocer with the apparent tagline: If…

The best exercises for weight loss

I admit, I’m not exactly up on current events, but I have a good reason. Every time I open my browser I am immediately hit with news that makes me want to drop everything and build an underground cement bunker, and then run to Costco to fill it up with cans of beans, flashlights, and…

How to turn fitness fails into success stories

After watching the SyFy channel the other night (tagline: yes, we know how to spell, but this looks way cooler), I experienced a eureka moment: We live in a parallel universe. One is called Facebook and the other is real life. Okay, this wasn’t exactly news to me. But it became extra clear as I…

10, 100-calorie, healthy snack ideas

Most of the time my blog posts practically write themselves. I’ll think of a topic while doing cardio, or when I’m in the shower or otherwise have no access to any writing implement or recording device, leaving me at the mercy of my rapidly diminishing memory.  If I still remember my brilliant idea by the…

10 key questions to ask yourself for faster results 

I don’t remember much about my colonoscopy from a few years back, which is probably a good thing. But after I came out of the anesthesia my doctor looked at me oddly when I asked him how I did. He told me everything looked fine and added, “You asked a lot of questions.” He did…

Not your actual core

Best core exercises for women over 50

Words get thrown around in the fitness realm that become so commonplace no one dares to ask what the heck they even mean. We all assume everyone else knows, so it would be embarrassing to ask.   Case in point: your core, as in, “I’m going to the gym to work my core.” But what…

How to get back into the swing of things after a break

According to the Holmes-Rahe Stress Inventory, which ranks life events according to the impact they have on a person’s life, a “major change in living conditions” ranks 25 on a scale of 11 to 100, the latter being death of a spouse.   I beg to differ. The fact that I’m writing this “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…
