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.

Let me start by saying we all do the best we can with the knowledge we have. This means, unless you’re a trained professional in every aspect of life, you likely have gaps in the information you possess. So, hence, you rely on info provided by other people. First,...read more
I recently read a story about the demise of an Indonesian man, Mbah Gotho, who claimed to be 146 years old when he died. Many people say he exaggerated. For one, Indonesia did not begin recording births until 1900, which makes his claim suspicious. Truth is, he may...read more

We’ve been our new house for three weeks now, and I’ve come to a number of realizations. One, is how even though we moved only 12 miles from our former house, it may as well be on another planet. I do my shopping at all new stores, including an organic grocer with...read more
