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.

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

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
Happy Thanksgiving! I’ll get right to the point today, since I’m sure you have better things to do than surf the ‘net on a holiday (or not). But first, I want to give thanks to YOU for being a subscriber, reading my crazy posts and hopefully finding some...read more
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...read more
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...read more
