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.

If you know you need more exercise but would rather schedule a colonoscopy and root canal on the same day than do a single crunch, you are not alone. Turns out the majority of us are lazy schlubs, according to a new study. (Why we need to spend tax dollars to find out...read more
As an in-home trainer for over 15 years, I’ve also been insulted, yelled at, cried on, (nearly) barfed on, hugged, and been asked my opinion on everything from politics (no comment) to whether or not I thought it was a good idea to have a fling with the man who...read more
Remember Cracker Jacks? I used to love that stuff. It wasn’t for the caramel popcorn or peanuts (the latter of which I’d toss out), but for the hidden prize inside. It was rarely anything truly exciting but usually a cheesy plastic dog-shaped charm, fake diamond ring...read more
How do you spend your average day? I recently installed an app (at the end of this post) that tells me how much time I waste (although I question how shoe shopping is a “waste” of time) versus actual productive time. The first week the app showed I worked a total of...read more
Last weekend I went to dinner with my husband for our anniversary. We picked a restaurant known for its $115, 3-1/2 pound ribeye steak, which translates into about 14, 4-oz. servings. In other words, if you put that steak in the center of the table it would’ve fed an...read more
You are what you eat. That pretty much sums up the results you get – or don’t get – from your exercise program. You can pump iron and do cardio ‘til the cows come home, but if you’re eating a trough of ice cream every night after work you won’t see much muscle...read more
I admit, I'm cheating a bit here because I'm playing off a challenge I'm currently doing with my Facebook Ageless After 50 group. But it's to your benefit. And I apologize right up front that this post isn't as uproariously humorous as per my usual style because I...read more
Figuring out what to eat to lose weight after 50 is like doing a Rubik’s cube with your hands behind your back. (Actually someone’s done this – see link at the end of this post). Every time you think you’ve found the magic combination it ends up in one of three ways:...read more
I went for my annual exam yesterday morning. You know the one. It involves a giant shoehorn, stirrups without a horse in sight and answering questions while pretending there’s not a hand searching for buried treasure amongst your internal organs. That one. And then...read more
