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.

How To De-Stress in 20 Seconds

Do you ever get knots in your muscles? They feel as if someone’s poking you with a finger and won’t stop. As I sit writing these words I have one in my upper back between my shoulder blade and my spine. It’s just painful enough to distract me but not bad enough to make me…

7 Tips to Find the Best Workout For You

New workout trends seem to crop up nearly every day and they only seem to get weirder with time. When I started working out 35 years ago (a.k.a. the Jurassic Era) Nautilus was The Next Big Thing. You started at one end of a circuit, spent 20 minutes adjusting the seat and buckling up (I…

The Cure For Post-Turkey Day Regrets

I planned to write a motivating Thanksgiving post about ways to burn off that giant portion of sausage stuffing and slice of pecan pie, but a not-so-funny thing happened this morning that changed my focus. I thought I was going to die. For real. I woke up feeling a little wonky but it was 4:30…

How To Have Your Cake and Eat It, Too

  Many moons ago, before I became a trainer, I ironically worked in the food business. Specifically, the dessert business. (That’s my brother, Barry, me, and my mother in my bakery, circa 1980s.) In short, I would’ve been your worst frenemy. I not only specialized in desserts, but I even managed a bakery and worked…

3 Painless Ways to Eat Less

A lot of women ask me about my diet. “So what do you eat, anyway?” as if I’m holding out on some magic potion or special recipe I won’t reveal. I wish. Truth is, I am far from a model of perfection when it comes to meal planning. I don’t count calories, carbs or even…

3 Easy Ways to Kick Start Weight Loss

Trick or treat! Want to see something really scary? Step on the scale after eating all that leftover Halloween candy. Stephen King could not create more horror. Thus the holiday games begin. It starts with a single candy corn on Halloween and ends New Year’s Eve with a glass of champagne and remorse. It may…

The Last Ab Workout You'll Ever Need

Let’s be honest: Can you ever have too many ab exercises? It’s like having too many shoes. No such thing exists. In the case of ab workouts, it’s fun to try them all in a quest for that one exercise that will finally get take your abs from flabby to washboard flat and for good.…

Ninety-nine percent of the emails I receive from readers have one resounding theme: “I’m doing everything right and still can’t lose this weight!” If that sounds like you, I wish I could give you a hug and reassure you that I have all the answers. Truth is, if I had all the answers I’d be writing this…
