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.

I’ve never been one to strive for fame and fortune, at least not in the traditional sense. Here’s the thing. It’s hard enough to keep in shape without seeing your photo on the cover of The National Enquirer with a circle around your belly and a caption, “Baby bump...read more
I have a love-hate relationship with my knees. Without them I couldn’t sit. I also couldn’t walk without lurching around like a circus performer on stilts. With them it's often not much better. As I try to compose a mental list of “knees: pros and cons,” so far...read more
Last night we watched a sci-fi movie called “Life.” Like many of these types of movies it starts out with a bunch of scientists embarking on a mission, all gung-ho and ready to make history with some groundbreaking new discovery. And then, of course, things go...read more
Every gym has its cast of characters. Regardless of how small, large, or where in the country, you can always count on a few interesting creatures to show up at any gathering place where sweat, spandex and mirrors is involved. It’s as if they are paid extras who...read more
I was banished from a Facebook group last week. Shunned, ostracized, voted off the island. That’s never happened to me, and I honestly still have no idea why. In fact, I assumed the group had dissolved, because why else would I not be able to sign in? Yup, color me...read more
