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.

How to keep dimples on your face and off your butt

Let’s face it: cellulite bites. Like a lower pooch belly, it’s another one of those nasty things women tend to get that men (for the most part) do not. Statistics vary, but my research tells me just about every woman has cellulite to some extent, some more than others. I have known of exactly two…

Do this one thing to keep weight under control

How much time do you spend sitting every day? By now you’ve probably heard the studies linking sitting to a whole slew of health problems, including heart disease and other nasty stuff.

3 Best Ab Exercises for Women Over 50

Flat abs appear on the fitness bucket list of nearly every woman I’ve ever trained. Why does it seem like an elusive goal? Because it takes more than a single exercise or tactic to achieve. And it becomes even harder to attain as we age. But here’s the reality. You need to reign in your…

20 Minutes to Aging Gracefully

I turned 55 years old a month ago today. “Double nickels,” as a friend of mine said. I confess, as much as I spout off about feeling young and happy and comfortable with aging, it’s not always a walk in the park. Things do change with age, regardless of whether or not I refuse to…

Visiting relatives, holiday shopping and partying make it tempting to ditch your workouts until January. Don’t. Between office parties, eggnog and alcohol you’ll be lucky if you can tie your bathrobe together come January 1.

12 Ways to Burn Off Thanksgiving Dinner

Let’s face it, Thanksgiving is the one day a year no one gives you a hard time for eating what you want. One day won’t single-handedly add girth to your midsection unless you carry it over until New Year’s  and beyond. So it’s fine to live a little. But since the average person eats around…
