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.

Menopausal weight gain can feel like an epic battle between YOU vs. FAT. Fat forges over the hill wielding a plate of chocolate mousse cake and a flag made from elastic waist pants while you hold up your bathroom scale as a shield. Who will win in this struggle...read more
I'm inherently lazy. I may give the impression that I bounce out of bed in the morning and get to the gym with a smile on my face but it could not be farther from the truth. I am more of a morning person than a night owl, but not completely by choice. My cat...read more
Love is in the air. Yup, it’s Valentine’s, the time of year when a naked baby flies around shooting arrows into all our hearts, making us fall head over heels in love. How getting impaled in the chest with a sharp object relates to love is beyond me. (Unless you end...read more
"Help me figure out what to eat!" Most emails I get boil down to this one request. It’s much harder to answer questions about diet than it is to respond to fitness questions. Why? Because we have emotional connections to food. Food is love, right? You know this...read more
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
