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.

Once upon a time, long before P90X, Insanity and CrossFit were even a twinkle in some fitness guru’s eye, we had the Mark Eden bust developer. Ads featured a woman with ginormous boobage and copy that read, “My bustline went from a flat 35" to a full 39" in just 8...read more
Last week I read an article about how salmon makes you fat. If that were true I’d weigh 800 pounds. I love salmon and eat a lot of it. Nearly every day I read about something else that’s supposed to create a eureka moment and make you realize there’s one thing...read more
I turn 56 in two days and I’m a little freaked out. And not just because I share the same birthday with Kid Rock. I’m over the 55 hump and can see that big sign for Route 60 right around the bend at the junction between Rocking Chair Road and Get Over It Lane....read more
Yup, it’s here again: post-holiday clean up time. So toss out that last piece of moldy fruit cake, pick the pine needles out of the carpet before the cat gets to them… and check out lists of the Best Of 2014. I’m not usually a follower, but since I find myself sending...read more
The other day I opened the refrigerator and noticed a nearly empty eggnog bottle. So I asked my husband (for whom I’d bought the premium eggnog), “What did you think of that ‘nog?” “What eggnog?” he asked. “I didn’t even know it was in there.” “Well, I certainly...read more
If a genie suddenly burst out of your computer's hard drive and offered to grant you any wish, would you A. scream and call 911, B. make a mental note to cut back on the wine, or C. go along with this turban-headed guy just in case he's not a hallucination. If you...read more
I often get letters from frustrated readers who describe to me their particular situation or health obstacles and how my advice won’t work for them because of X, Y or Z. As much as I want to help, it’s tough for me to know where and how you can make changes. Short of...read more
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...read more
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...read more
