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.

Gravity. We need it to keep us from floating around in space, I get it. But there’s a major downside. Every day we battle against this invisible force that wants to literally drag our butts into the ground, preferably the center of the earth. Or magnetic north. (You...read more
Got a second? If you’re like most people you hate that very question because it’s already wasted two seconds of your time to respond. Yup, that’s how time-strapped most of us are. Or at least it’s how we perceive ourselves. Working, running errands, doing household...read more
Belly fat. It’s a constant battle after 50. One day you’re 23, frolicking on the beach in a bikini without a thought about sun damage (“Who cares what I’ll look like when I’m 40?” some young thing once said to me), the number of calories in fried clams or how you look...read more

In the beginning there was thigh gap, a term used to designate the space between the upper legs that exists only if you weigh 12 pounds and are between the ages of 15 and 17. It was one of the latest, 15-minute trending, eating-disorder provoking goals to achieve,...read more
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
