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.
Sign up below on the pink bar to get my Thursday newsletter. If you need more motivation or go to my WORK WITH ME page to receive my Monday Motivation newsletter.

What would get you out of bed at 5 a.m.? If you’re like most people, it’s nothing short of a fire alarm, a SWAT team breaking down your door or George Clooney. Or George Clooney as one of the SWAT team members. Trust me, you are not alone. Since Clooney's likely too...read more
When you’ve been splurging on chocolate mousse cake, dining at all-you-can-eat buffets and downing a bit (or a lot) more wine than usual, the next time you get on the scale will likely involve tears and a few colorful expletives. But that won’t be a surprise....read more
No, I have not discovered some new get-thin-quick scheme, nor do I believe one exists. However, over the years I've struggled with many clients over this one thing. For many women it’s what I call a “non-negotiable,” (NN) meaning it’s not worth discussing...read more

When I worked as a trainer I'd sometimes dread going to parties because inevitably someone would pop the question, "So what do YOU do?" Once I told them, I'd either get a. excuses as to why they're not working out (without me asking), b. questions about whether or not...read more
I grew up a skinny kid and hated it. School bullies nicknamed me Boney Meloney. Flattering, right? Needless to say, things have changed. Back then, it seemed no matter what I did I could not gain weight. I put butter on my English muffins, ate cake, pizza, the whole...read more
