Belly fat, weight loss, nutrition, fitness, motivation — oh, my! Every Monday and 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 ugly and the comedic.
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.

Let’s be clear: I am not a risk taker. I won’t tempt fate by swimming in shark-infested waters or by jumping off a cliff just to see if a bouncy cord is strong enough to spring my butt back up to safety and I won’t eat a Carolina Reaper pepper because Guinness...read more
I’m sitting here with a compression sock on my left calf and an icepack on my lower back. The reason? I’m a 23-year old woman stuck in a 56-year old body. In other words, I think I’m invincible. It started when I increased my speed on the treadmill while testing out a...read more
After living on both the east coast (Connecticut and New York) for most of my life and now the west coast (southern California), I’ve realized a few major differences between them. Aside from traffic jams that turn a 15-minute commute into an all-day trip and learning...read more
